I think it's safe to assume it's only the length that changes

Nothing, it was just an idea at first then, looking at all those pics of 2016 Supersix framesets, I've discovered it's just normal


A friend just received his new 58cm evo and I had a look at the fork/frame gap. I can confirm that there was a gap between his frame/fork that looks identical to the photos you posted in the OP. Definitely designed this way, and nothing wrong with your combination of a newer fork on a previous model year frame.

To answer Godzuki's question, cannondale posts equivalent fork rake for all frame sizes, so I think a fork from a 58 frame would fit Godzuki wife's 48 :)

Including the yawning void at the back? Surely not!

Yes, the 2016 and newer (my friend's was specced with DA9100, so I assume it is the most recent version) forks leave a yawning gap between the fork and the lower headset. The new fork is too narrow front to back to completely cover the bearing seal at the rear of the lower headset bearing. I think both bearing races still have full contact with the frame though.
