A Custom CAAD for the Bone Crusher

Documenting the build of Paul's Cannondale CAAD12

Many times when seeing a "bling bike" out in the wild, you have to ask yourself: "is this rider's performance worthy of such a high-quality build?" When it comes to DT Racing team member, Paul Lengermann, you can flip that question around. For this exact reason, Paul and DT Racing called upon Conte's Bike Shop, Kogel Bearings, Cannondale, and many others to build what has become an incredible race bike.

Paul has developed quite the reputation as a dedicated, no-fuss elite racer, and he expects the same from his equipment. After racking up impressive results up and down the East Coast, including experience at Road Nats and his most recent Mid-Atlantic Time Trial Series crown, Paul certainly deserves top-notch equipment. Paul is excited to put this Cannondale CAAD12 through the paces in crits and circuit races in MABRA land and beyond.

Build details:

  • Cannondale CAAD12
  • Kogel Bearings ceramic bottom bracket and pulley wheels
  • Zipp aero cockpit
  • SRAM RED Quarq power meter
