    handlebar width of CAAD10 size 56

    Hi all, i'd like to know the handlebar width of my 2012 CAAD 10 size 56.
    if i measure the bar end c-to-c, it seems 430mm, if i measure the bar top, it seems 420mm.

    Must be a 42. Every bar manufacturer has it's own way to measure. Some use center to center at the end of the drop, others at the hoods, others measure outside to outside...

    Huh, my 2012 CAAD10 58cm had 45cm c-c handlebars. They were pretty huge. Pretty sure the stem on my 58 was 110mm too, but I'm not 100% positive about that. I am surprised Cannondale is not more consistent about sizing of components.

    This ridiculously 45cm wide c-c (44.5cm on the hoods) C3 handlebar came stock with my 2011 56cm CAAD10.
    I could barely ride it. Who rides 45cm bars on a 56cm frame anyway?

    I now ride a 42cm and it's great.

    My 2011 CAAD10 58cm came with 43cm c-c bar ends and 42cm c-c on the tops - it is a C2 bar.
