Cannondale CAAD8 2014 shares the same proven race geometry of its more expensive brother, the CAAD10, but with a slightly taller head tube (+1.5 cm) for a more relaxed riding position. It also built of a lesser quality aluminum than the CAAD10. But it is still a great entry-level road bike. As Cannondale claims, “This is the bike for people who’ve been inspired by the peloton and are ready to start being a ‘cyclist'”.
