Saved the best til last
I've keep the triple cause we live in the middle of the swiss alps
Forgot my wife’s caad 8
Nice build, love the stem. Portland rack is great.. I chopped the rim off mine, modified the clamp and shortened the stays to level and drop it lower. 1x for hauling kid around London is perfect.
@wharry Yes that stem is super cool. I almost regret to let it go on a friend's bike. It's a ritchey force made by nitto. I've also modified the rack a little bit after this pictures. I shortened the stays of the rack and drill new holes into the flat section to connect the stays with m6 screw and stainless p-clips to the fork legs. The coda quick release was too short and it was not easy to remove the front wheel. (the fork was in steel not in carbon as yours).
The yepp front child seat are amazing. We have use it a lot with my two sons.
Have you modified the clamping device on yours ? It seems very high. If i remember correctly the legs of my children were behing the handlebar and not in front as on your bike.
Yes, I flipped the clamp. Requires a bit of fettling. Here's how its done.
stance on that
Nice bikes and tasteful builds!
One more readers caad 8 for the page
I'm trying to switch the original fork of my Caad6 to a Look HSC4, so I don't need to cut the original fork for slamming my stem. Also don't want to have to deal with the (original) starnut in it.
However, the Look fork appears to have some kind of integrated (carbon) crown race. If I put a (45 degr) crown race on top of that, I end up with a huge gap between fork and headtube.
Does anyone know if the Look forks require some kind of shallow crown race, or is it just not compatible with the caad5/6 frame?
(this might not be the right place for this question, if so, apologies)
Also, the crown race needed encouragement to the extent that it broke... leading me to believe it's not supposed to be there...
Some of these had integrated crown races but…that does not look like like one.
This is my very first road bike, got it yesterday!
It is a 2018 CAAD12.
Any tips and useful info are more tha welcomed.
Photograph it from the other side ;-)
Of the river? Haha
Strong rebuttal. #Rep.
The guards are an excellent choice - year round riding.
Anyone here wanting a Hollowgram Si crankset? I have one spare, 172.5, fitted with spider and Praxis 52/36 rings
I'm sure this has been covered somewhere, but can you fit a non-Cannondale chainset to the current SystemSix Evo? I think the answer involves some kind of converter BB?
CAAD 12 build complete. Still need to take some decent pics but these'll do for now I hope.
Stripping the frame was actually a massive chore.
Quite the result though.
Exeter Car Park?
Lovely, would ride
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
