Raw Caad10

***Latest updated pics on page 3, post 39***

Picked this up from a fellow paceliner a while back. Swapped out a few parts, threw on some 404FCs. I've been really impressed with the ride, so much so that I'm selling my Evo in favor of this---can't really tell much of a difference between the two. Might consider swapping the 6800 for Campy (maybe Chorus?) down the road, but as it sits right now it's a fun ride.

Those unpainted CAADs are so striking. And going all-black with the bits really looks the business. Enjoy!

The dimensions on that bike are about as close to perfect as I've ever seen! Wow!

Haha thanks. I think there was a thread on the forum a while back talking about how 56cm frames had the best proportions...

Luckily for me I fit a 56, so I would have to agree on that

I had a 58 in a CAAD10, those proportions are good too. Something about the tube size, and close to horizontal TT...just DOES it for me.

Re: Caad 10

I have the matte black 2012 model. Wish I had the raw, but the $$$ was too good to pass up. I must say, that after riding for 40+ years on everything under the sun--including an old late '80s C'dale criterium model with a 2" diameter down tube across Iowa on RAGBRAI that literally beat me to death--I really like the CAAD 10's ride. My Specialized Secteur Limited has not seen the light of day since.

Enjoy.

Very. Very. Well done. The following come to mind looking at that bike:


Bad to the bone.

No nonsense.

Try to come around me with 500 to go.

Class.
