Hi all
I've been lurking on here for a while now but with a bike not worth mentioning. Thought it was about time I treated myself and the new bike arrived on Wednesday.
Wanted a Cannondale for a long while now so opted for a Supersix Evo Ultegra.
As I spent just about everything I had spare on it (plus new pedals and shoes) upgrades will be happening very slowly. Probably just tiny little cheap ones to start like carbon bar end plugs, the SI headset expander and either some Planet X or Mt Zoom skewers. First proper upgrade will be a Spidering as soon as possible.
I ordered the Cannondale 5mm headset cover as soon as I knew the bike was on its way (I wouldn't dare post a pic of a Supersix without a slammed front end :lol: )

Thanks for looking
James

I'm afraid I don't know at the moment. Need to get some scales.

Solid bike (I have the previous year version). Did you have the shop cut the steerer tube when you picked it up or on your own?

It really does tick all the boxes for me. I cut it myself, I've done plenty before but must say, this was the most nerve wracking!

Thanks. I'm looking forward to getting a Spidering on it because they look awesome and every Supersix should have one!! I'm thinking 38mm carbon clinchers in the future too.

Anyone know the weight of a compact c'dale spidering? The 53/39 weighs 175gr so I'm guessing it will not save a lot of weight compared to your current FSAs. I have the same ones, they are 150gr.

Thanks guys. Just got back from my first proper ride, it really is an incredible bike!! The acceleration and climbing is in a different league to anything I've ridden before!
n3bur - the change to a Spidering is purely cosmetic for me really, I think every Cannondale should have one :thumbup:

You're absolutely right :thumbup: I've been thinking the same for my Synapse, although I've been looking for a cheaper solution like the extralite octaramp rc2, which saves a few grams as well (94gr).

The bike looks great -- but why crop out the dog?? Black Labrador, is it?

I thought I would ride to work this morning for a change. Had a great ride but as I walked away from my bike once I got to work I heard a noise and turned round to see it on the floor!!!! I must not have leant it up properly and it fell over!!! Long story short, I now have a big scratch on the left fork leg and the underside of the down tube!!!! Totally gutted.

Looks great!

Don't worry about the scratches. Now you'll enjoy the bike more, use it as it was intended. Remember, bikes are merely tools. It's the engine sitting on top of the bike that is the true marvel.

Lots of happy miles!
