Yes, it will be offered as a frame.

And as far as warranty goes, Cannondale does lifetime and there is a trade a program. I wonder if people who buy Sony Playstations or Apple's iPhone/iPod expect those companies to keep their product up to date? Also, in the Moto world, most off road motorcycles come with ZERO warranty. That's nothing, nada. I also guess you're not from the states as there are plenty of people driving around with Chevy/Ford logos all over their cars....

I think the 2009 CAAD9 paint scheme is much classier than the new 2010. Plus, when you upgrade the fork, you have one killer bike.

Caad9 + Campy > Caad9 + Shim/Sram

If Trek's doing its pricing structure right, there's a model somewhere that says "we expect x warranty replacements, at a cost of $y. $y spread across z sales means an additional cost of $n per bike"

Appreciated.

However Trek are able to offer this, yet still remain competitive in their pricing with other brands that do not...

For which I admire them for.

And there are also brands out of Asia who have minimal branding, who are happy to offer lifetime warranties too.

I'm not spending anywhere near the same amount on my PS3 and iPod as I am with a bicycle. And fwiw my iPod had a two year warranty and I believe the Sony had at least one year. Which does not stack up too badly at all with those offered on most bicycles.

I don't ride motorbikes, so have no idea about all that. Although I will say that, for me, that's a blight on them and a failure in their post sales support rather than supporting evidence on how bicycle manufacturers should operate.

I also do not live in the USA, but have to wonder (and would be surprised) if paint jobs with Ford/Chevy logo's all over the car are a standard option....? And by "all over the car" I'm assuming it's along the lines that I aluded to previously and would be comparable to those on a bike....?



Whatever the case, I'm very happy to agree to disagree on this one. As it's all sort of detracting from the original thread. You've got a right of reply of course, but otherwise happy to drop it.

They say here http://www.bikeradar.com/road/news/article/first-look-cannondales-2010-road-highlights-22205 that the retail is $13,299 :noidea:

Are they wrong (need to know just how many pennies I will have to count... :D ) ?

That's the price for the SRM bike. All the prices I gave were for the non-SRM.

So what would you do?

Buy the Caad9-1(FSA SLK bb30 crank right?) or get the Caad9-4(Sram Force bb30 crank?) and swap the shifters and deraileurs for 2010 Force? The wheels, bar, stem, saddle, ect will get swapped anyway for my own stuff.
- Zipp rims will break if you look at them too hard
- R-Sys wheels will spontaneously explode
- The ZG crankset will never, ever exist
- Everyone needs Lightweights, even if they're fat and old
- Parts actually made of metal are SO 10 years ago

assuming you're not going to buy a Super 6............ I'd get the CAAD9-4, swap the hoods for Red, and swap the cranks for SI-SL SRM............... Then get some bad-mam-a-jamma wheels and you're ready to rock.

Can't afford the Super 6/don't want to race a bike that expensive.

You'd leave the Rival deraileurs?
