My preference is for curved forks, although it has been a few years since I rode straight bladed forks.

To me old school implies steel so if you're going to use Al I'm a big supporter of modern functionality. The flattened top tube hopefully provides some vertical compliance. The internal cables are cleaner but hopefully the routing is robust. The joints look perhaps better than the 10. I don't like the color: give me anodized black. But I recognize its a team bike. Overall I think it looks great and it's tempting to get one even going that makes absolutely zero sense for me: I'm happy with what I have.

However, I was surprised it was in the race, since none of the CAADs are on the UCI approved list. Note there's no stickers visible. I wonder if they'll claim some new welding process like Trek claimed for the Emonda AR. It certainly looks cleaner. Which brings up the question of HMDIW?

HMDIW?

My local shop (big Cannondale dealer) said they are expecting the new CAAD in stock around September/October. FWIW.

I can only assume it's 'how much does it weigh?'.

Looks like a lefty gravel bike to be released as well.

Not so sure about the transition to internal cables, although i do like that these repositioned the already internal rear brake entry - as that spot was terrible.

Not entirely sure why that's got flows on. I would've thought it would be better with crests; unless of course they're planning on shredding those gravel roads hard.

The lefty is certainly interesting, I wonder how much travel it'll have.

They've been racing a SuperX with a lefty for a season or two at about 40mm travel. Should be enough when you don't need to factor in any drops, jumps or square edge hits.
