How do you like the ICAN wheels? Those are the cheaper ones right? I've only really seen reviews of the "aero" series.

I got this CAAD9 for cheap, do you think its safe to build up and ride?

Missed this post. I would not have bought this. For me, I would not ride this anymore. Hope you got it very cheap as the frame has no value and it is only the parts that have some value.

First bought the new 105 full bike with Mavic Aksiums in 2019. Been wanting Campy stuff since but could never pull the trigger because of a) the subpar riding conditions around me b) 105 does function flawlessly. Moved last month and FINALLY.

Special thanks to everyone who contributed to the glueing tubulars thread! Thanks to you guys, my first glue job went more smoothly than I thought was possible, and I'd never even changed a clincher tyre before. And to the fellas at Helen's Cycles Santa Monica - top notch service for really good prices.

In a moment of overwhelming joy I forgot to ask them to weigh the bike. My estimate is in the 7.5 kg range. It will drop ~150 grams when I put on Darimo seatpost and Selle Italia SLR Boost next month.

Frameset: Cannondale CAAD12 Size 50 rim brake
Groupset: Campagnolo Chorus 12 speed 36/52 165 mm 11/32
Wheels: Campagnolo Bora One 50 Tubulars
Tyres: Veloflex ProTour 25 mm
Bar: Deda Zero100 Shallow 42 cm (40 cm c-c)
Stem: Deda Zero100 110 mm 8 degrees
Bartape: Lizard Skin DSP 2.5 mm
Seatpost: Cannondale Save 25.4 mm
Saddle: Astute Skyline VT Taca 135 mm
Pedals: LOOK Keo 2 Max
Bottle cages: Elite Custom Race Plus

I know it's a long time ago but I had to say how cool this build is.

Found a Daad12 for sale for a song locally.

A few subtle changes and she's looking more like how a racey CAAD12 should look

Those bottle cages HAD to go too. It's amazing how some slammage transforms a bike. Great buy.

Can you reshare the photos as the links are broken now.

I'm looking at getting a CAAD12 as a winter bike and want to know how feasible full mudguards will be

My new to me caad 10 56cm. Just opened today. Very good frameset. No dents or dings. Had one before instantly regretted selling it. Plans are sisl2 spidering 9100 mechanical. Black inc bars and sub 7kg the target. Good base to start with. Took me 3 months to find this Image

8.21kg with pedals. Standard frame group set etc. and just standard shimano wheels with a old 11/28.

Sub 7kg is the goal.
