My Six13. Thinking of changing the bars to a classic shallow drop but the K-wings are a bit iconic of the mid 2000's. The K-wings are quite heavy though and starting to look very tired - plus I'm digging the classic shape on one of my other bikes!

Cheers! I plan on taking some new photos for the signature thread once I find some K-Force cranks to finish off the builds current iteration.

One recommendation I have for you, stay away from FSA crancksers. Most of my friends that use this crank end up with the pedal tread insert in their hands

Apologies for the instagram filter, but rode it 90 miles today. Smooth as butter and fast as hell.

Fantastic looking bike you Got there.
What kind of wheels is that?
Framesize?
Stem lenght?
I Think you should go for that Classic handlebar, for the perfect look

This was the original Synapse and the most "raciest" frame they've ever produced in a Synapse, barring the different guises of Synapse Carbon. The geometry is that of a 52/54 SS/Optimo/C10 pretty much:

74 STA, 72.5 HTA, 545 TT, 140 HT, 987 WB, 45 RK.

This is as racy as it gets in S/M framesize. Thing I really like about this frame is it has a CAAD8 DT, CAAD9 TT and a Synapse rear. Fantastic combination of everythng which all other CAADs lack. Racy and lightweight combined which you won't find in today's Synapse.

Thanks Rumsas. The frame is a 56cm, stem length is 120mm, wheels are 60mm carbon tubulars, Chinese no names - love them.

Bought it second hand off a friend who has great taste and rode it with Mavic Carbonnes - looked awesome. Frame is a bit tired paint wise though. Common problem with the clear coat near the carbon/ aluminium joint bubbling and crazing. Thinking of doing a clean up job on it myself - bit inspired by Munk93's Trek Madone clear coat!

I wonder if anyone else with these Six13's have had them refinished?

@paddyrider. . . I always wanted one of those frames, and actually a couple of weeks ago i finally found one in my size, and in very good condition. Still it also has some problems where the Carbon and alloy is joint. My plan is to with a very delicate hand, and some high grit sandpaper, sand the ugly parts out, and then give it a complete new coat of clear paint.
It must have been very cool with the cosmic wheels, but i like it the way you build it to.
I would like to build mine with all black wheels and the campagnolo seatpost to, that looks perfect i think..
