To celebrate our new CLASSIFIEDS PAGE, we go with an oldie but a goodie... Bike of the Day #10 – Cannondale Caad7 Cipo Edition The Details: Cannondale Caad7 Team Saeco Edition - 15.2 lbs The Build: Campy Chorus-11, Hollowgram BB30 crankset, FSA stem and post, Zipp short+shallow carbon bars, Campy Bora wheels [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="577" caption="FSA/Zipp combo gets the job done at a low weight"][/caption] The Ratings… Ride-quality/Comfort: 6/10 Front-end Stiffness: 7/10 BB Stiffness: 8/10 Style/Aesthetics: 9/10 Technology/Weight/Value:  9/10 Total = 39/50  [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="614" caption="The world's finest alloy crankset, the Hollowgram SL - we have them for you on special order"][/caption] The Good: Racey geometry, stiff in the BB, ridiculously amazing candy-apple-red paint job, BB30, lighter all-carbon Premium+ fork, and images of Mario kicking ass on his Caad5. The Bad: A bit soft in the front end (now tapered), pretty damn harsh in the rear (even for an aluminum), and that paint-job is delicate! The Skinny: Cannondale once sold this bike as their high-end racer, so that's how we built her. But most will opt for an entry-level version these days, which still gets the job done. We sell hydroformed aluminum Carrera, Cyfac and Scapin framesets that can all compete with the Big C.
