Introducing my new road bike :) She's a Cannondale 2009 Caad9-5! Took from November 13-30
So new Caad9-5's run about 1200+tax but that's with 105 components, and no carbon!
I built one up part by part, for the same price has Dura Ace (except a 105 front derailleur) and everything besides the frame is carbon. including the wheelset. Sweet.
I also got Gore Ride On Professional cables all through out (unexposed sexyness)
I know. Frickin expensive right? I hope it'll be worth it.
so I tried to ride it at around 8pm but it was to frikkin cold. (low of 40F today) I want to ride so bad tho ugh.
