Over the weekend I finally decided to test ride a few cannondales, even though I ordered a blue r5000 in february. Well, it turns out I need a 56cm and I ordered a 58cm. The dealer called Monday morning to change the order to a 56 and was told the 58 had just shipped. He is willing to send it back so no harm there but the 56 isn't expected to arrive until the end of april :( . Post some pics to hold me over until then.

In retrospect, I should have taken these photos drivetrain out. Oh well.

Prepare to love your new bike.

And yes, I need to paint my basement.

are you running the Compact SLK crankset?

Hey beergood,

Are you running the 50-36 FSA compact with Dura Ace 10 speed? How does it shift? Any problems with your set up? There were so many threads about this a while back but I think the posters were just not setting up there derailleurs correctly.

BTW, nice look'n bike! I was torn between the new R5000 and the 04 R3000 that I just bought but ebay won out again as I found a hell of a deal on the R3000. I do love my new dale though.

Brian, I hope you get yours soon brother.

Also, how are you all posting your pics. I thought you had to post a link to a webserver like webshots or something?

Nope, 53-39. I heard weird things about the compacts also.

I finally got it. Size 56 weighs in @ 18.08lbs with pedals, cages, and computer. I'm very impressed by this bike, especially for the price. It would be easy to upgrade to get the weight even lower if needed. Heck, you could add AM sprint 350's and lose almost an entire pound. It's a great bike and it's blue, what more could I ask for. :D

Oh yeah, and the seat is really great. I'll be able to do a better review after I get the saddle position and handlebar position exactly right and get some more miles on the bike

Bought a R800 Caad5 from LBS as "new old stock". Parted the bike out and sold everything but frame, stem and forks on ebay. Minus ebay fees, it ended up costing me $150 bucks for frame, stem, forks. Otherwise, bike is full Ultegra, Kysrium Elite, Ritchey WCS bars, Speedplay pedals, Bontrager X Lite carbon post. Brooks saddle, Cateye Astrale 8 computer. Nice bike for my needs.

It may be old, but it rides just fine for me. The pic is a bit out of date as I have upgraded to Look pedals since I took the pic. I do have a lighter tubular wheelset for her.

This is an old SR300. Got it for $150 at a swap meet last year. The previous owner pitched a fit about downtubes, so the shop guy rigged up this stupid thing with old thumbshifters on the bartops, which are a PITA. Not to worry, I'll be soon changing them back to DTs.
