More than likely the Mud version of the R3

I have a really difficult time believing that Merida or any of the other manufacturers for that matter are producing custom molds for these guys.


Peter Sagan's Synapse. Custom geometry beyond a shadow of a doubt.

His Evo is too, but the Synapse is a better example as it's impossible to argue against. Just look at it! :P

It really depends on how the frame is constructed whether it's custom geometry is plausible or not. Not all frames are monocoque like the ones from the mold petepeterson posted. Ones like those are definitely not likely to be made custom since it would require an entirely new mold which is not cheap. Different layups are entirely possible no matter the manufacturing process and most big name pro frames are probably different than what you can buy.

Well, if Sagan's salary is about 4 million euros per year http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/cannondale-set-to-team-up-with-tinkoff-in-2014, and good results by him are valuable to the team owner and sponsors, then maybe a custom monocoque is worth it, if it improves his chance of good performances.

Sagan's mold is the same as Bennati's old mold. Apparently a few other Cannondale riders used it when the SS first came out.

Boonen is still on custom Specialized frames. 60cm TT, size 56 HT

Still wish they'd change the C'dale color...I know Sagan is partial to green, but maybe a more subdued shade...

Didn't Bennati finish up with Cannondale before the Evo was released? It's possible that they rode the same geometry, but it wouldn't be the same mold.

The actual cost of producing a new mold isn't as prohibitively expensive as people might think.

Sagans is a 58tt with the head tube of the 54cm. Custom tube to tube.

I think people get hung up on what mold's used to cost before CNC machines and advancements in CAM software. Mold's are getting pretty darn cheap compared what they used to be when they were made on manual mills.

Sarto (and probably a bunch of others) do T2T 'replicas', to suit pro's who want custom geo...

Do you mean geometry?

It's not the same mold because it's not the same frame.

Sagan's custom has been mentioned a few times from memory eg: http://www.bikeradar.com/au/news/article/pro-bike-peter-sagans-cannondale-supersix-evo-hi-mod-34462/
