What a deal! This quality of frame (2.8lb CAAD4 butted aluminium) fork (carbon) and equipment (Tiagra) commanded a 4-figure fee a couple of years back.
- The CAAD4 frame is like CAAD3 - PowerPyramid downtube and all - further refined with a machined bottom bracket & skinny, vertically-compliant hourglass seatstays.
- Slice Prodigy carbon fibre fork - lightweight and shock damping.
- Mavic rims with Shimano hubs and Conti tyres make superb wheels.
- Tiagra gears for Dura-Ace-like engineering at an accessible price.
This is a bicycle that revels in being ridden hard urged round steep hairpins; hammered down rutted, 40mph descents, and cracked open in a dash for placings. The CAAD4 frameset is something of a triumph. All in all, she was a package I couldn't fault. Cycling Weekly.
