I have an 05 Six13 and am very pleased with it. Would like to hear why people hate it...

Admittedly, the quality of the frame isn't that impressive and Cannondale Europe hasn't been very helpful

I have one, and love it. I assume you too must have one to be able to make a Poll like this. Can I commend you on your range of possible outcomes. I fail to see on what grounds someone who likes bikes enough to visit this forum could hate another bike. If I am not mistaken it’s roughly the same shape as a Time VXRS or a Pinarello, are we arguing about Cannondale as a brand, or about the irrelevant organization of frame materials? Is this enough to justify hate? :?: :?:

I test rode a new 2005 57cm that summer a few times, and that size and geometry was perfect for me.

Of course they couldn't leave it alone for '06. :doh:

Have you had any issues with chain rubbing the frame on your six13 with the Eurus wheels? In big chain ring, small sprocket?

love, of course.
mine is a 2006 team, with SI crankset..it's stiff and comfortable, exactly what one could expect from a bike.
I just knew that due to a well-known paint problem (mine is the silver/carbon version) cannondale will change the frame for free, but they are also offering the possibility to upgrade to the systemsix adding some money.
anyhow, I like the six13 so much (and the systemsix is so ugly IMHO) that I still have to decie what to do.
