Product Review: Cannondale Caad12

Cannondale has had a long history of making fantastic race bikes. From the creation of the CAAD series (Cannondale Advanced Aluminum Design) in the late 90′s, Cannondale has been a leader in aluminum race bikes. Even after the carbon fiber take-over of the market, Cannondale continues to believe that even though carbon can be built to be lighter, stiffer and in most respects, faster, the aluminum frame still has a place in the market.

The race course was absolutely awesome with six corners with big wide roads on good tarmac. This was not your usual four corner industrial park criterium! This course was fast and […]
