    Possibly >3.0 chord:thickness on some parts, and the seat stays don't lie within the UCI frame template.

    Just a name collision, but it always pleases me than when I google Tien Hsin to look up some dull detail of angular contact bearings, I get pretty picture results too.

    I was being pedantic - it's odd that Cannondale went to Tange for bearings when nearly everybody else gets theirs from the lovely Tien Hsin

    IIRC All the CAADs with IS headsets use campy bearings

    If we're going to be pedantic, they use Tange Seiki 4T5-5 bearings, which are interchangeable with Campag ones.

    the Internet is an open space

    Up to a point, but every individual server is a privately owned, er, what's the word, oh yes, Domain, over which the owner can exercise whatever controls he likes.

    domain (n.):

    1. The land that a ruler or a government controls
    2. A territory over which rule or control is exercised.

    etc.

    Cannondale CAAD 8 headset

    There are 3 main dimensions for integrated headsets, inner race chamfer angle, outer race chamfer angle and outer race diameter. Almost any combination of the three has been done, but the two really common ones are FSA 36°-45°-41.0mm and Campag 45°-45°-41.8mm. I have a feeling Cannondale use 45°-45°-41.8mm headsets on CAAD8 and other integrated head tubes with 1⅛" steerers
