I have recurited a friend who has offered to help build my first ever road bike (and provide me with some campag centaur shifters for free).So firstly I imagine I could do with one of those 'frame' contraptions.

After a fair few months of searching I have found what appears to be one of the best aluminium frames in the Cannondale Caad9.So my question there anywhere in the UK that sells just the frameset or am I destined to be trawling eBay for the next 6 months.



  • Hi,

    I have a CAAD8 R900 frameset and it's been great. A bit older than the CAAD9 but still a good frame. I think you would be good starting off with a CAAD9/CAAD10 if you can get one.

    You can always have someone do the hardwork for you and go for a built CAAD8 for only £400. ... AsvQ8P8HAQ

    CAAD12 frames are about £700 and some CAAD10s are about £530 (

    You should also look into the following frames.

    Condor Italia RC
    Bowman Palace
    Pearson Upandatem

    I personally love my Cannondale and the new frames are coming in some great colours. Good luck with the build.

    I think he's probably sorted now since he asked 7 years ago :D
  • ?? That thread came up at the top of the list when I logged into the forum today! Weird. Was wondering why CAAD9 was being brought up given its age.
