Okay, I've been thinking about a new build for 2013. I could just hang on to my Addict - size M, mainly DA 7800, ISP / Ritchey stubby (30mm setback?), Fizik Aliante seat clamped about in the middle, and a 110 stem, 6300g with pedals. It fits great and handles fantastic, but has a pretty stiff ride. But... I think I eventually want to go DA 9000, and I'd prefer to hang it on a new frame. I've been considering a Parlee Z5 in Medium/Large or maybe a SuperSix Evo. If I could find something a little more compliant while maintaining the great handling, light weight, and stiff BB, I'd be happy.
Anyone gone from an Addict to one of these frames? Feedback?

Addict is a fantastic frame. I'd still be riding my R1 as my main bike if it fit me better.

Maybe if you want to freshen it up, get it repainted or refinished?

I had a 2009 addict SL and I sold it for those exact reasons, its just not a very vertically compliant frame. My 54 weighed 808g so I was very pleased in that respect but I just didn't feel the love.

I do not own one, but have ridden many models, the Cannondale Evo is next on my list. Its most defiantly more comfortable then my addict and I feel it has similar torsional (I'm 150 lbs) stiffness while being around the same weight.

I surely wouldn't put down the money for a Z5 when Evos now retail for $4000 for a Sram red complete bike but that's just me.

I want to build it up myself, so I'm looking for frame/fork. I think I could get a "like new" EVO right now for around $1500. The Parlee is 2012 new @ $2500. I'm a little concerned about fit, but I have 30mm of headset spacer on my Addict, and that's why I'm thinking the M/L Parlee would be nice. The EVO in medium is pretty darn close to the Addict so not really a problem.
BTW, I do still really love my Addict, but if I was to fix something, it would be the vertical compliance. I could just upgrade it to DA 9000, and sell the 7800, but I think I could sell the Addict as a whole bike easier than parting out the components, and maybe get an equal performance, yet slightly more compliant frame too (okay, and little extra money). ;)

I'm not really worried about the frame appearance, I'm more interested in a possible improvement in comfort, and something to hang DA 9000 on. I could also end up with an extra bike, but can you have too many bikes? :D
The Addict does fit me perfect, with some spacers on the steerer, and that's part of my dilemma. :roll:
