Score big on CAAD 5 team frame(6 posts)

Score big on CAAD 5 team framet-moore

I scored big time $399 at Helen's, they were selling CAAD 7's for $499. Store mgr priced frames too low. 5's went up to $499 the 7's went to $799. This size 63cm had been hanging around for a long time. They couldn't get any takers for $653. I wasn't in the market for a new frame, but at $399 the price and size was right...

That's the best looking CAAD5 frame I've ever seen. I'm fanatical about red and black color schemes. What team was that from?

PAA - Pasadend Athletic Association, one of the larger clubs around here. They normally have a big contingent at the Rose Bowl rides, as well as the Saturday Montrose Ride. check em out on their site..

By the way, Helen's Arcadia still has several CAAD 7's in smaller sizes. They were a still at $499, but still a good buy at $799.

I know a guy on that team, and I remember seeing his CAAD7 when it showed up last year. That's a great price on a great-looking frame. I picked up an overstock CAAD5 team frame last winter and I have been very happy with it...although it was not priced as aggressively as yours is.
Good luck with it...biknben

And just a few threads down someone was complaining that Al frames are too expensive.

That's a good deal and a unique paint scheme. My bud got a CAAD5 with a different helen's cycle paint job from GVH. Being on the oposite side of the county, no one around has seen it and it attracts some attention.

Have fun with it.
