project: road bike - version 2.0

this really happened on the: 14th November 2011

faced a harsh reality the other day.. this bike is too big for me! despite shorter stem, smaller handlebars, lowered stem and better seat position im still too stretched out, its causing shoulder and back pains and i just dont feel limbs are just too short ! so i need a smaller frame, 48cm felt too small so 50 has to be go.

so i was on the hunt for a 50cm caad9 frame and it wasnt looking good until *POOF!* a wild 2009 white/red caad9 appeared! (thanks dave for the ebay hookup). i quickly threw my pokeball (wallet) and caught it.. so introducing caad9 2.0!
