Strengths:    Looks bad A#$! light enough...seriously. Race geometry. DURA - ACE!! Aluminum = worry free.

Weaknesses:    Not the best wheels but it is under $3,000.00

Bottom Line:   
So I have to say that I am a fan. I know...OK it's your bike you aren't gonna write a crappy review right? Seriosly I could have paid twice as much for a bike that is what 2 ounces lighter? 4 ounces? C'mon!? The thing handles awesome jumps when you want it to looks KILLER and wont fracture if you have a bad get-off. Carbon guys know what i mean. I'm sold on buying a Red CaaD 9-4 with SRAM rival/Force for my trainer...putting the rs-80 wheels on that and upgrading to tubulars for the 9-1. Whatch out!

2007 Caad9 Optimo 1 advice for a beginner?

I would like to get my first road bike, and my father-in-law and his friends ride a lot. One of his friends has offered me a 2007 Caad9 Optimo 1 (I don't think there are any upgrades) for $800. From what I'm told, it's in really good shape, having been too big for the original buyer. Unfortunately ... Read More »

2010 CAAD9-1 or 2011 CAAD10-4?

I'm in the hunt for a new road bike and was looking around my LBS the other day. They had a 2011 CAAD10-4 in my size that they are willing to give me 10% off on. I have been eyeing this bike for a while and was happy to see they had the 2011 in my size. While I was giving that a close inspection the ... Read More »

My New Caad9-1 build

Here is the build spec: Frame/Fork - Caad9-1 Stem/Bars - Ritchey WCS Seatpost - Thomson Elite Saddle - either SLR ... Read More »

CAAD9 and EDGE/ENVE 1.0 Fork

As has been observed by many CAAD9 owners, the Slice fork with the alloy steerer is a boat anchor. In an attempt to lighten my tank of a bike I'm looking to upgrade the fork. I am looking seriously at the Edge/Enve 1.0 fork (45mm rake) because it is very light and appears to have a solid track recor ... Read More »

Yet another "Which bike?" thread: Cannondale Caad9 vs. Trek 2.1

OK, I need help. I recently placed a deposit on a 2010 Cannondale Caad9-6, having spent the better part of an afternoon calling almost every C'dale dealer in the state to find old inventory and a bike my size (56 cm). I've read enough reviews and opinions to have a pretty good idea that the frame ... Read More »
