I have both a CAAD5 and a CAAD6. Have had them both for 1 year. No problem!!!!

I haven't had any problems with the headset.

One thing worth mentioning: C'dale is putting star nuts in the carbon steerers. They claim it is fine. Most people on this board would say otherwise. If you're buying from a LBS, ask them about it.

I only Kept my Dale 5 for a month (1K miles) but the Campy HS worked fine. The HS came with a really nice slip fit type plug. Probably the best steerer plug of any fork I've installed.

I got my R2000si with full Ultegra which was great. I also replaced the stem which was too long. I tried selling the Coda stem, but no body was interested. Try to get the best components that you can & you'll be fine.
