    I love the look of the 12's with the straight top tube, but I'm 6'6". I can certainly understand the need for sloping top tubes on smaller sizes to fit a greater proportion of the cycling community.

    I saw the change too, been looking at the website the last couple of weeks for a size 50 and the website had the seat tube length listed at 51.2cms and then just this week when I visited the website they have the seat tube height listed at 54.5cms. Does that mean they reverted back to the 2015, 2016 geometry or was there just a mix up with the website info? I'm hoping its the latter. I'm posting in the hope that someone who's actually bought a 2018 model can validate.

    51.2 should be the correct seattube height for the 2017+ model runs. The first batch of 50 and smaller had the wrong rear triangles welded on. This has since been rectified. Unfortunately their website and catalogs (no longer published for 2018) don’t always say the right thing but if you call up, Cannondale will tell you the actual size of 51. Some shops could still have the odd sizing in their stock though.

    Hmm.... I'm glad I'm not alone. I'm looking for a new aluminum road bike and currently ride size 52s. I'm 5'6" with a 29" inseam, my saddle is at 67.5 cm from center of bb to top of saddle. If I picked up one of these I would literally have 5cm of seat post showing with a size 52. By comparison the Allez Sprint would have me w/ 13cm of seat post and the Emonda ALR would have me with 14cm of seat post.

    Now, I would say the CAAD is the best looking of the bunch, but not if the seat post is basically slammed. The Allez has a really low stack that I'm not sure I could do. So I guess that makes my decision easy to go for the Trek.

    You wouldn’t most likely ride a Caad12 size 50, not a 52cm.

    Smaller size Dales have a more sloping TT than their usual (bigger) sizes. I believe the cut off point used to be 52cm frame size.
