Cannondale CAAD10 5 105
Carbon frames are popular these days, but they can be expensive, and some sprinters find the flex inefficient when it’s time to power forward. Cannondale’s CAAD10 5 105 is a great aluminum alternative—it’s stiffer than carbon but smoother than most aluminum bikes, so you’ll have both acceleration and comfort. And with a frame that’s only 2.5 pounds, it’s actually lighter than several carbon steeds. Not to mention light on your wallet. ($1,730, cannondale.com)
