Hey guys,

Am I reading this right? Are the Caad 10's not being made in the US? That's too bad if not.

I've purchased my last Cannondale and will hang onto my Caad 8/DA10 indefinitely.

Depends of the model, the CAAD 9 were still made in the US as well as other models in 2010 but some models have been made in Asia since 2007 I think...

this is old news pal. the asian made frames are lighter, stiffer, more vertically compliant than the US made frames. All for the same price. What does this tell you?

Why dont you just donate your $200 toward your local unemployment office for the people who lost their jobs because they were greedy and wouldn't work for lower wages.

haha you're funny, you may have more luck making your own clothes and slapping made in US stickers on it.

You expect Americans to work for $1.00 an hour, How about you try it.

its "they're" and the 2011 caad10 frame made in Asia is a better frame than the 2010 caad9 frame made in the usa. Prices are the same. By better i mean 200g lighter, stiffer, and with SAVE chain and seatstays is more vertically compliant. Oh and the welds are just as good or better.

Is it better do to being made in Asia or do to a better design. If the CAAD 10 was made in USA would it not be as good.

it would cost cannondale more for the same frame, hence at the same price, it won't be as good. Or it can be just as good, but at a higher price.

Ok...so what if you have an American made frame...what about the rest of your bike? 99.9% of those parts are still made outside the US.

The only other "American made" part on my bike are the Zero Gravity brakes.
