I posted something in the 2011 thread but I thought it fitting to start a new thread dedicated to the next Cannondale Supersix.
Most likely they will release at Giro or TdF and only then start production in Sept/Aug?

So I can hardly contain my excitement when I saw this pic...
Can it be the new Cannondale Evo frameset?

Chain-stays are different from the current Super. Not as round? Looks almost like the Synaps' chain-stays. The seat-stays drop in two and not one as the current 2011 frame and a nice flow from the top tube into the seat stays.

I like it.

So who has some more info on this???? :lol: :lol: :roll: :D

Must agree!! 8)

If you look at the video, it looks like the top tube starts round in the front and runs flattish at the back going into the seat stays.
Evil to see stuff like this in February and you know you will MAYBE be able to get your hands on one only in December! :lol: :mrgreen:

That does look very 'Flash-like' and pretty sweet too.

Maybe it's just the angle of the photos (and it probably is), but the headtube doesn't look as oversized as previous versions - do you think there is any chance that they've scaled back to a 1,1/4 lower bearing?

I like it.

Also looks is if the rear brake cable runs internally

This looks like this may be a reincarnation of the system-six. The rear end is the exact same as the CAAD10, note the 'delta box' logo by the BB at the bottom of the seat tube. The whole rear end, including BB area look as though they are made of the aluminium CAAD10.

On second thought though, also looks very similar to the carbon SuperX. Maybe a classics bike?

I agree that the paint scheme looks great on this.

So I am assuming "Evo" was just the project name and they are keeping SuperSix as the name of the bike? The inside of the fork has the SuperSix graphic.

It doesn't look that evo to me.
Headtube, bb shell, chainstays, downtube... everything they seem to be downsized. Its maybe my impression though.

Buy it. & Ride it.
Only if it has a high margin of utility.

Looks like a 27.2 seatpost to me, too.

Like the internal brake cable - Di2 version will be all internal cables :thumbup:

That rider has really good style. See socks + shoes.

Looks like a sweet bike, cannondale's paintjobs just get better and better.
