2011 supersix hm red....
just removed the old red and fit 2013 da9700 11spd....also added FSA plasma bar/stem combo for extra stiffness...
removed the cannondale si cranks for the dura ace and added a praxis bb30 converter which feeling excellent and smooth. noteably a tad heavier without the cannondale cranks though...
also, new fizik r3 saddle matches the bike perfectly.
wheels are the excellent mavic sls but will probably swap em for rsys sl's for La Marmotte this year...
Love the ride of the himod and not convinced as to why the evo would be that much better than this??

It is smoother yet feels stiffer at the same time. Its an amazing ride. Don't test ride one though unless you are prepared to buy one.

early days but so far its outstanding..best cabled groupset bar none. just waiting for spare cables from shimano and for kmc to make a chain link to use rather than a pin....

i've owned both yes. as the comment above suggested, its smoother and stiffer. when seated and riding over rougher roads, its smoother and when descending or sprinting, its stiffer and more direct. the evo really is a major step up from the SuSix.

i'd goes as far to say that the CAAD10 is an upgrade over the SuSix, as it rides very similar to the Evo, but obviously lacks the carbon dampening of road buzz.

never rode on the evo, but well on the Supersix Himod and never felt good on it, i then returned on CAAD...10 after 9
I rode on quasi every Cannondale made, except EVO
R2.8
CAAD4
CAAD7
Six13 (maybe the best ever)
SystemSix
Supersix Himod
CAAD9
CAAD10 (certainly the best)
i know some racer who has both (Evo/CAAD10) and feels no big difference between them, except for his wallet!!!
he feels a little more confort on the Evo, but if you use latex innertubes, you should not feel it anymore

seems im going to have to upgrade to an evo then!!!
ive had a number of dales including caad 8, caad 9, six13, system six, supersix and guess evo looks the way to go but love the way this frame handles, especially for a heavy rider....

Evo or CAAD10!?
In the club, number of CAAD10 is still growing and everyone riding it loves it.
and spending less for the frame, you can spend more for a beautifull groupset or wheelset!!??

had almost the same setup before i switched to the foil! should be very very good! they say the evo is stiffer and more aero, but the S6 HM rides like a cadillac ;)
