In Washington, the home of Klein Bicycles (RIP), those can be fighting words!PNW is pretty vague, I'm in the PNW, Edmonds area in WA. The weather right now is what makes this part of the country so awesome. You have a great bike there and just getting it and riding is the best advice I could give you. The CAAD has a really big following and some claim it's the best aluminum bike made. Period. Get some miles under your belt and enjoy the ride.
