Details

Experience the culmination of Cannondale's years of aluminum framebuilding experience with their thoroughbred CAAD10 4. Its expertly crafted frame is impressively light, stiff in all the right places and amazingly efficient, meaning all your hard work turns into forward momentum. Up front, the full-carbon fork with a tapered steerer carves corners and smooths out rough roads. Component-wise, SRAM's Rival shifters and derailleurs are paired with a Force crank to supply precise gear changes, while the Shimano wheels spin up to speed in a hurry. And, this stellar roadster features top-rate components like Schwalbe tires and a Prologo saddle.

If you're in the market for a bike in the $2k range don't even consider anything else just go get one of these. Swap out the tires for some Conti gp4000s's and you are ready to roll. Accelerates fast and great smooth feel. Great bike for racing or just passing up everyone on their Carbon bikes during group rides.

I have ridden my father's old (twice my age) aluminum Alan from when he was racing, and own a 2008 Cervelo P2SL from my triathlon days. I am used to aluminum frames, and knew they were great value for the price, especially compared to carbon. Truly, this bike is just about the best bang for the buck. The frame is 1100 grams, and still plenty stiff due to the aluminum. I will note that the bike is the best ride of the aluminum frames I have ridden. The SRAM Rival is lighter and less expensive than Ultegra. I took the bike out the day after I bought it for a 3.5 hour hill ride to break it in. The weight is hardly an issue, and you can tell that you are hardly losing any power when you put on the gas to climb a hill. I felt no chatters while descending at 35+ MPH, and could take the corners very quickly The very next day, I had a race. The bike was PHENOMENAL. I appreciated the great handling, and the ability to trust the bike through corners. The great power transfer was evident while chasing down breaks. Unfortunately at the end, I was involved in a crash. I took the brunt of the fall, but the bike was fine, aside from some scratches on the shifters. The tires un-seated from the rims, and ended up flatting. All in all, this bike will probably not be the limiting factor in your training/racing. The stock wheels are a bit heavy, so I am going to be switching out the wheels with some Mavic Ksyrium Elite's, and Continental GP4000 tires.
