I new to the forum and just built up my new bike for the spring. I picked up a 2012 Supersix Evo on sale at my local shop and did some upgrading. I added a new Hollowgram SISL2 crankset and some Negative GSL brakes. Here is a build list. I unfortunately don't have weights yet and haven't figured out where I want my fork cut to. I'm also waiting on the new Cannondale SI headset plug. My backup bike is a 2007 Caad 9.

nice bike. except you are riding with a cadence erection and I know you have room to flip it down.

I need to get a thinner wheel magnet first. There is actually only 1 or 2 mm of wiggle room so I didn't want to chance it.

You can flip the magnet to the other side of the spoke. It'll still work.

Very nice bicycles. I am curoious how you like the ride characteristics of the two frames. Hi-modulus CF vs aluminum. Care to make some comparions and comments for us?

Ha, what a coincidence!

I made the exact same upgrade last year. Went from a CAAD9 to a SuperSix Evo, in the exact same colour and size you have!

If I may comment; the difference between the two is night and day; I had my CAAD9 for 2 years and have had my Evo since August 2012, so have ridden both extensively.

The CAAD9 feels more harsh to ride (it is not a harsh ride, per se, but in comparison to the Evo). It is also a lot heavier to ride. Everything just feels better on the Evo, and the SAVE stays really make a difference. I have reports from my CAAD10 mates, who upgraded from CAAD9s that this is also the case on their machines.

I recently (ie, a few weeks ago) also got the SiSL2 crankset with Spiderring, which I upgraded to from Dura Ace 7900 and again, that makes a difference. Not sure if it is a result of having everything that is designed to work together sitting as a system, or if they really are stiffer than DA7900, but they really add to the system.

So yeah, to the OP, I bet like me, you are absolutely loving this new setup.

Where did you get the SISL2 crankset from? I have been looking for one for weeks but my LBS says they are unavailable at the moment.

This is my first Carbon Cannondale and I haven't been able to ride it since I got it built up this weekend. It has been snowing pretty heavily in Utah lately. I love the Caad though. I like it so much I just picked up a 2010 Caad 9 on ebay with BB30 so I will be moving the parts from this one over and installing some Hollowgram SL's on it.

I picked up the SISL2's from Contender bikes in Salt Lake City. One of the employees there got a new Evo and for whatever reason he decided to sell them. I picked them up with spindle and the removal and spider tools for 700 bucks. I couldn't pass it up. It did come with FSA chainrings though. I sold them and picked up the Praxis rings because I think the Spiderings are fugly.

Can I ask; why have you got an adjustment barrel on the rear mech cable?

I just got my scale in and came up with the weights on my Evo. 6.59 kg 14.53 lbs I'm pretty happy with that weight seeing that I'm using some beefier aluminum clinchers.
