Hey, I think the CAAD 7 is an awsome frame.

Coincidentally I have a brand new one for sale, lol.

Take the Cannondale CAAD7 and if you have the money then buy their Hollowgram cranks too

doesnt sound like it. if that were true, then they would have made their caad 8 frames with O/S BB, but they dont. they only make the 613 with the O/S BB because they want only their high end frame with that crank. but you never know, still it doesnt sound like cannondale.

Where? cannondale was called up by my store, they said they were not produced. it is not even on their site. but i would like to know where if you have some insight. thanks. if you read O/S BB they are talking about the outboard bearings that come with certain crank system, NOT for the Si cranks.

ah, nice find. that is eurpean site, i was looking for USA. would they sell it here in the USA? also would be nice if they sold just the frameset with the Si hollowgram cranks and not the Si carbon cranks. that is, if they sell the frameset at all.

That I don't no,don't see why you couldn't get it,ask your dealer,weird if you couldn't as Cannondale is American!I'd like to get my hands on that frame,but I'd keep my SI cranks,the carbon SI cranks are heavy.
