Caad9

Not a "1," but here are some iphone pics of my "4" after today's ride. Got it at the end of November and have put in around 200 miles. Pretty much stock except for the Rival calipers and cateye computer. I know I'll catch some heat for the specialized saddle bag (it was formerly on my allez). As others have mentioned, the Sram double-tap shifting took some getting used to, but now I don't think that I'll ever go back to Shimano - it's just so intuitive. Great bike; does everything well.

Found out from the local Cannondale rep that my Caad9/1 shipped today. With any luck, it may be in by Wednesday. I'm hoping it is as I'm leaving town for a long weekend and I'd love to take the bike with me and build it up while fighting boredom at my in-law's house.

Mine looks just like the black CAAD9-4 above only with a Thomson setback post and DTSwiss 1.2s laced to red Chris King high flange classic hubs. I love the SRAM stuff...

I got my Caad9/1 in yesterday afternoon. I waited at the shop for like 2 hours on FedEx. I did all the main assembly but ran out of time before having to head out of town for New Years. I plan on finishing everything up on Monday night. Will post pictures soon. It looks pretty friggin' sweet!!

Toona: What size is that frame? Let us know if you ever sell it... my son's got wrecked and he LOVED the paint job. We couldn't get it replaced with another green one.

Good idea... who knows, maybe someone will be looking to sell their old model again. I wish I could get a crash replacement from them... I've still got the old mangled one.
