You might still be able to find some NOS, etc.
Google "Acqua Sapone zebra" and "Domina Vacanze zebra".

@Nooch

I would have happily sold it back to you but I think you contacted me a day or two after it was sold... sorry!

Oh I know No hard feelings -- more so the regret of not asking soon enough!

took the caad out for the first real ride since building it up. didn't expect it to live up to all the caad hype but it definitely did. super responsive and stable at the same time. still working on the fit since the components on it are longer than I'm used to (cranks, stem, seatpost). will probably end up slamming the stem. but an hour and change today and no pain anywhere.

Very cool!

CAADs are really terrific bikes. So underrated, and can hold their own against just about anything when nicely equipped (wheels, mainly).

Agreed. I am starting to buy into all the fuss is about CAAD's and that paint is off the chain. Looks like a crit monster! Is that what you mainly use it for? How is it on rougher road surfaces and long rides? Do you have other bikes that you use depending on what type of ride you are doing?

thanks! and yes it is mostly for racing local nyc races which are mostly crits or park races. i used to ride a caad9 and never really minded the stiffness. i even used it on a 2 day 260 mile ride from nyc to boston and was fine. i might be biased since i ride on nyc streets almost everyday.

i do have other bikes. i have a steel yamaguchi road bike and a soma double cross as a dedicated commuter/tourer. the yamaguchi mostly hangs on the wall now because i baby it whenever i take it out which is the total opposite of me. its been saved for long, slow, group rides.

i got a ridiculous deal on the caad and it can get scratched, dented, etc. and i probably wouldn't lose sleep over it. will be the first time racing the caad this weekend and will report back.
