These are enroute as I type this :D , Rolf Ares4 ES - full finished bike shots soon. 2 years after my smash, about time!

Different from the normal Mavic / Zipp / Fulcrum and USA built is fitting for a Cannondale (even if this is the first CAAD that isn't built there :facepalm: )

Full bike shots later today. Any guesses as to what this non-carbon weapon would weigh..?

And the most surprising bit for me... :shock:

At least I'm UCI legal...just! :wink:

"But I need a carbon frame!" - Do you now..? :roll:

6.85kg for a 58cm large frame, this weapon will outperform my abilities every day of the week.

Nice to have nice things though...

8) bike. I think next year is the year of the new bike for me and I've been very interested in the Caad10 (or 12 now) because of the good reviews, light weight, aluminum frame (I'm heavy and worried about carbon). I won't build it up as light as yours - stick with alloy wheels and probably 105. My LBS is a BMC dealer though, so I may be riding a BMC next year.

Looks very stealth.

Iv got a supersix and its very good but the CAAD12 looks like it could tempt me back to metal.
