Cannondale CAAD 12? Issues?

Postby Defy The Odds » Thu Nov 23, 2017 9:44 pm

I am starting to do my research on my N+1 and have added the CAAD12 Ultegra to the list.

I have heard of issues with the BB creaking annoyingly but others rave about their CAAD. I like the traditional lines of the CAAD but it would drive me insane have a constantly creaking BB and having to make multiple trips to the LBS.

My current Defy Composite has been an absolute pleasure with only minimal maintenance required.

Who here has first hand experience with the CAAD12?

I have a CAAD12 Ultegra and haven't had any issues with the BB creaking. I had a CAAD12 105 with a creaking BB but it was fixed fairly easily IIRC.

I have had the Ultegra since April this year and haven't had any issues. The wheels have been upgraded - I didn't bond with the Aksium's. Other than that its standard.
