Cannondale's CAAD10 Force Racing Edition will rocket you to the top of the climb, and to the front of the group ride. Cannondale's masterfully engineered SmartFormed aluminum frame is light, stiff, and ready to sprint away from the pack, and the rider-tuned, women's-specific geometry offers a fit like no other. The BB30 bottom bracket and ovalized seat tube make it blindingly efficient for maximum power transfer and excellent acceleration, while the flattened SPEED SAVE stays and tapered carbon SPEED SAVE fork create a ride that's fast and smooth, so you can ride stronger, longer. Mavic Aksium wheels are what you need to soar up the climbs, and the masterful Force 22/Rival 22 drivetrain boasts the crisp, rapid-fire shifting SRAM is known for. A selection of ultra-light cockpit components from Cannondale, and a sleek Prologo saddle, provide the finishing touches on this unmatched road machine.
For increased stiffness and improved steering precision, a tapered head tube (see image on left) and fork pair an oversize lower steerer tube (usually 1 1/2-inch, see image on right) with a standard diameter upper steerer tube (usually 1 1/8-inch). This combination sheds weight compared to a straight 1 1/2-inch system, and adds stability and stiffness when compared to a straight 1 1/8-inch system. The result is a bike that tracks better through corners while allowing for the use of standard stems.

I have always wanted to treat myself to a higher end road bike but lets face it these things are very expensive. I have always heard CAAD bikes are a bargain and can ride similar to high end carbon bikes. So without a demo I ordered it and it has not let me down at all. I have had carbon bikes before in a flat bar but this CAAD10 Force is in another planet in feel. Its stiff yet so comfortable over bad roads that you might think its steel or carbon. Noise from road chatter is gone, I can't hear any. I got this on sale cause the CAAD12 is out, take my word for it get this before its gone.
