Yeah 25.4 witchery looking into a MCFK. a mate bought the wrong length for his supersix so might score a deal if it fits my fit within the clamp zone.

Anyone running one? How's the ride?

Love that color CAAD12, and the amount of logos isn't crazy, just right

Very nice. Can I mention that the valve stem on the front wheel isn't quite vertical? :lol: :welcome:

CAAD12 Red 58cm, all as it came from the shop except Vision Metron 81 clinchers paired with GP4000S II. I've yet to see this colorway on this thread so here's to variety!

Out of interest where did you get your chainrings on your CAAD12 build?

Bespoke chainrings here in Melbourne, Australia. Not the lightest but he is working on another model. Smooth as butter. Took a little filing to get a good flush mount on the sram hidden bolt. He'll also engrave anything on there. :thumbup:

Confirming that Focus has created a 25.4MM version of their CPX Seatpost. A real good value alternative to the Enve (hate the clamps), FSA or stock.

Glad to see other brands adopt the 25.4 standard. Now if they can just start adopting the BB30A standard. Dammit.
