Contemplating purchasing a 2012 CAAD10. I'm hearing prices of the CAAD10 4 Rival bike of $1799 while the CAAD10 3 Ultegra bike is $2150. I found some build specs on the bikes from this site.
At this point I'm a little disappointed that they seemed to have down spec'd the Rival bike from last year...No Force BB30 crank, Aksium wheels only on the Ultegra bike now. I have not heard good things about the Lugano tires either. But on the positive side the Rival bike is the one that they're offering in the Raw/Black color scheme that I really like.
The Ultegra bike has the FSA SL-K Light Carbon crank which seems to have mixed reviews....but other than that it's the full Ultegra group, shifters, derailleurs, brakes, etc. The tires & wheels are better as well.
Assuming that these will be the final US specs, is it worth the extra $350 ?
