Then you heard wrong- they are basically the same frame, slightly different seatstays and -30 grams is the only difference. But the CAAD7's still have the SI Hollowgram option, and can be affordably purchased used on Ebay or RBR Classifieds, or even here (saw the 54cm advertised here- looks nice).

This forum would be a better place if you had to know what you were talking about prior to posting. And if you took yourself less seriously.

Have not heard much about the e5 S-Works, being compact would of thought it might be stiffer, than again dale's have the power pyramid down tube, does anyone know if these bike,s have been tested for flex.
