Here is my 2016 supersix EVO

Recently upgraded from a CAAD 12, for me the difference is huge - so much more compliance resulting in a butter smooth ride

- 54cm
- Sram eTap
- Hollowgram SI cranks + spider rings 52/36
- Speedplay pedals
- Ultegra 6800 brakes
- Ultegra 6800 cassette 11/28
- Sram Red chain
- Wheels Manufacturing press fit BB (still creaks!)
- Cannondale C2 stem
- Deda superleggra carbon bars
- 2016 ZIPP 303 carbon clinchers
- Cannondale C2 seatpost
- Selle Italia Super Flow saddle
- Michelin Power comps 25mm
- Continental supersonic tubes / stans rim tape
- Bontrager RXL cages
- K Edge Garmin mount
- Lifeline bar tape

7.1 kilos as pictured. Hope to get this sub 6.8 with sram red cassette, brakes and a hylix seatpost.

The Zipps are fantastic, really fast and roll beautifully on the new hubs although not that light at 1675g!

Thanks for looking.

What a nice road machine!
FYI. It looks like Bontrager XXX bottle cage, not RXL

Lovely looking evo! Can't wait to get eTap for my build.

I found that cannondale seatpost weighed alot on my CAAD, And those cages are definitely XXX.

Congrats on a sweet looking, sweet riding new bike. Ride it like you stole it!

Veloplugs in place of rim tape and a KMC X11 SL chain could be a couple more inexpensive WW upgrades to consider.

What bar tape are your running?

Thanks for the tips...are veloplugs are lighter than 2 layers of stans tubeless tape?

Out of KMC, Dura Ace and Sram chains, I find Red to be best.

I running lifeline performance tape, my favourite at the moment and it's only £5!

I like KMC Xxx SL chains for their light weight, quiet operation and quick disconnect link. I remove my chain frequently for cleaning and the quick link is a huge time saver.

6g for all the plugs in my 20/24 Reynolds wheels.

Beautiful bike, how you finding the eTap? You can't go wrong with a super6 for a lightweight build :thumbup:

Thank you..

I thought I might get some comments about the mixed group set and the non-slammed stem!

from being on di2 for the last 2 years, eTap for me is an improvement - ease of install, clean looks (I used to think that Di2 wires and junction boxes looked tech, now they seem archaic!) and the hoods / levers are best I've ever used, especially with small hands.. shift speed feels the same as Di2 although the FD up shift is not quite as precise or powerful..

Mines the same, I can't bring myself to cut the steerer tube......

I'm running my eTap with FSA rings but I'll be swapping it out for SRAM shortly. I've never used di2 but had considered it for my dale but after talking to a few I was convinced to go with eTap. Most share the same opinion as you which helped sway me.
