Having owned my M9 for nearly 2 years and riding it exclusively, i felt it was time to try something different. The M9 was an instant choice. I knew i was going to own one when they were first released and i put in my order promptly. The only thing that took time was deciding on the project one scheme. Where does one go from here?
I decided to go for the polar opposite to what my M9 is. Lighter, no focus on aero and maybe more of a focus on climbing. I considered the Emonda as the logical choice but after doing some quick calculations realised that the "System" weight is perhaps not as light as it seems due to the seatmast design and also non BB30 limiting crankset choices (although this wasn't that important at the end of the day). I considered speedvagens/baum/mosaic/field/F10 but at the end of the day decided on the venerable Supersix Evo. No one has ever said a Supersix evo rides like crap and i figured that the outlay is mostly on the parts in this regard and those items are transferrable.
This is the best paint for me, i noticed it on the Cannondale catalogue long before i even decided to get one . It is a heavy paintjob though. Really heavy. Really clearcoated and you can see it. If you felt like custom painting it you could easily shave off some serious grams and also retain the chrome logos.
I didn't manage to get a photo of the frame on the scale but it was 770g with all hardware removed (clamp, hanger, bolts, etc). Fork weighs 298g uncut. Size is 48cm. Quite a bit heavier than the team scheme that was previously posted that was one of the only 48cm's i could find on this site.
