Why Campy? Because I am old enough to have lived when all serious (read racer types) used or wanted to use Campy. Also, this bike is a component transfer, only the shifters and frame is new (well, also the afor-mentioned BB Cups).

Note: I also have a Surley LHT disk set up for commuting. I have to post more pics, but daytime is so precious right now.

Come to think of it, I have carbon, steel, and Aluminum. Never have had a titanium, though.

lol @ my heart rate:
Bike Ride Profile | DB1, son. near Plano | Times and Records | Strava
It was a solid ride where 6 of us put down power all day. There was never any intense suffering or anything, but I guess I can slam my heart that hard and live to tell about it.

2300ft in 60 miles, lol. Make sure you put the cover back on the pool table when you are done with your ride.

Pretty solid ride man. 18mi/hr avg is fast, especially for what Im used to and its pretty flat around here. Hopefully once i get my carbon frankenbike put together I can ride like that-my old steel bike takes a million watts to maintain that speed. (rider excuses LOL)

That HR is about where I sit the whole time. Though im 26 and (I believe, though I may be wrong) your a bit older than that?

Yep, just a little teasing between bike bros. I live at the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains, so I can ride 5 minutes west and get into some fairly solid climbs right away. One of the many reasons I love the south bay.

*Thats hand crafted, with an aluminum floater axle housing, carbon fiber driveshaft, drysump, and runs 5 seconds under the spec miata record.

Not yet. My local shop, aiming to please, bought the SRAM red version of the Hi-Mod and parted it out to get me the frame. They have my business forever. Even moved the parts over for me (well I took a lot of them off already and cleaned them) and set the new bike up perfectly.

I think they plan to supply frames only in about May, but they keep pushing it out as demand for the bikes is so high.

Back to "why Campy". Chorus and up is all same design, but various levels of carbon, Ti, and Ceramic (bearings). Stuff feels of right, shifts well, to me looks good (DA cranks do nothing for me aesthetically).

SRAM double tap shifting I've never tried, but my riding partner has the RED and misses shifts all the time. And he is mechanically inclined and OCD about getting things like that right. So, don't ever plan to try them.

And back to, "does it ride like a Caddy?"
Well we rode 32 miles today (some short climbs) and I think Cannondale got everything right on this bike. It comes normally with 28mm tires, but I'm presently running 23's and there was no harshness, and it points well. Best overall bike I've ever ridden.

Yes, think about one of these. Look at how they bring the rear Der cable out the back of the seat stay. No kink there. Little things like that. Very well thought out. And this is above the main goal of a Pro Level Comfort bike.

Here is my commuter:


I have a short left leg. On road shoes, I have a spacer between the sole of my shoe and the cleat. But for the commuter, I want to use recessed cleats (mountain shoes). So I found a pedal that the whole SPD section is bolted to the frame so that I could put shims there. His is that pic:
