Hi!

Someone could tell me how much weight a Caad 9 fork?

I am thinking of buying a quality aluminum frame, and I doubt between a CAAD 9 and S1. That is why I want to know the weight of the fork, to know the total weight of frame + fork in a 58 size.

On the other hand, i understood that has an aluminium neck, is it true?

In my opinión, the Caad 9 Pro's are: weight and stiffnes (I think). The S1 Pro`s: the fork and the aerodinámics. I don´t know wich is more manageable or stable

Can you help me?

Thanks a lot from Spain.

Hi DelGancho:

If i recall correctly from some of the past post when Cannondale made the BB30 CAAD9 available, the aluninum steerer fork weighed around 500-550gms. The carbon steerer fork weighed around 375gm. I don't know Cannondale Europe's policies but in the United States, if you buy the frameset (Cannondale only sells frame + fork), then you will get the Carbon steerer.

Thanks a lot.

I don't know wich forck comes in a frameset here, in Europe. But if is the Premium fork, is not too light, i think. I have to ask.

However, with the price difference between the S1 and the Caad9, I could buy a good fork like a 3t or Easton.

Now i have to decide wich frame is beter, because, here in Spain we could not try the bike before buy it. I only have for my decision what people say about the frames.

Thanks a lot, again.

look into the AlphaQ fork while you can...ebay they are great forks and the Wolf SL fork for Cervelos was made by AlphaQ (true temper) I just ordered one for my caad9 to replace the stock aluminum premium fork.
