'02 C-dale CAAD-7?????(4 posts)

'02 C-dale CAAD-7?????veloB
Mar 2, 2002 10:28 AM
In mid-Dec. '01, at the LBS, I made a deposit on delivery of the forth-coming black CAAD-7. The LBS said Cannondale promised delivery by no later than late Jan. '02.

Now, here it is March 2 - still no bike - all I have is missed deadlines, more promises, more excuses!!! I believe the hang-ups are with Cannondale and not the LBS.

Has anyone seen any of the black CAAD-7s on the road or anywhere else?

Does anyone have info as to the delays and/or any manufacturing problems?

Thanks in advance ---

it is a cannondale delay. the local amateur team, cannondale/wheelworks, they are also waiting on their caad7s. and they have no idea when they are coming in. but you are going to have a sweet ride whenever it comes in

Thanks for the feedback. I was considering going for something else. You encourage me to be patient and wait.
why do you say a "sweet ride"?CT1

Dales are known as good stiff race bikes, but NOBODY I've ever talked with said they had a sweet ride. What makes the Caad7 any different than say a caad5 in terms of ride quality???

FWIW: I thought my 01 Caad5 was pretty uncomfy.

Thanks
