Hey all,

I am looking at two R1000s, one is a CAAD7 (2005) and the other is a CAAD8 (2006). Both are brand-new, and I'm wondering what the major differences are. Aside from price (the 2005 is marked down a bit) are there any real differences?

AFAIK, the only difference is that the CAAD8 is something like 30 grams lighter because they changed the seatstays a bit. Other than that it's the same exact frame, except now the CAAD8's may or may not have a slightly sloping top tube (see other discussion in this forum). That is all.

I thought the 05 R1000 came with a Caad 8 frame too.

The 2005 R1000s are CAAD8.
