2013 Cannondale CAAD 8

This is my new Cannondale CAAD 8. I couldn't afford the CAAD 10 at the time (and didn't want the stock wheels or 105 groupset) as i already had bought a better grouppo and wheels which i put on. As a result this bike is a bit of a mish-mash with a somewhat unholy combination - but the reality is a very tight, smooth shifting gearing and braking system. I am surprised how fast it goes or how light it is; an amazing bike for the price. Not only that but there's loads more slamming potential for the stem and a wheel/fork upgrade will bring the current weight of 7.8ish down to around 7...
