Here is my SS EVO, built from a frameset last year initially with eTap however I’ve recently swapped this out for Di2 9150.

Its a proper weapon, someone on here once said that EVO handling is almost telepathic -this is so true! I also think the badass black chrome colourway is cannondale’s best ever..

It currently sits at 6.6kg with pedals, mount & cages.

I haven’t got individual weights however the frame was 850g, fork 300g - I think the black / chrome paint is quite heavy.

- Supersix EVO Hi Mod ‘17 size 54
- Dura Ace Di2 9150 gearset
- Ultegra 11-28 cassette
- Dura ace chain
- Dura 9100 brakes
- Hollowgram Si crankset 172.5mm
- Speedplay zero chromoly pedals
- Deda Superlegra carbon bars 40cm
- Fizik super light bar tape
- K Edge wahoo bolt Sport mount
- Hylix set back seatpost
- Selle ItAlia superflow saddle
- Hunt 30 wide carbon wheels
- Schwalbe Pro One tubeless 25mm tyres
- Bontrager XXX carbon bottle cages

When my finances recover I plan to get to get a carbon railed saddle, extralight stem, ti pedal axles and find a way to hide the Di2 junction box - all this might get me closer to 6.5kg Image

Thanks for looking....

Nice. I do like the looks of these frames... clean, simple, no gimmicks. I’ve always been kind of in between sizes on the Cannondale, so I’ve never owned one myself but have tried to set them up for me on occasion.
I’ve been playing around a lot with the newish Pro Vibe stems and bars and I think a 17 degree stem on that bike would look fabulous and be more solid feeling than the Extralite. You don’t have much drop at all in that setup so it’s a good way to experiment with position without having to cut your steertube, in case you want to go back. But a -17 slapped on that baby right where your current stem is might make it look even better than it does and certainly wouldn’t be taking things to any extreme drop wise. Plus, you can hide all the electric ugliness in the bars and stem. Don’t know anything about the Hunt wheels... are you liking them?

Nice bike :thumbup: , the finishes of all the parts look very nice together IMO, especially the frame and groupset.

Beware of -17 degree stems on Supersixes (or is it Supers Six?). They have a very slightly sloping to tube, so while a -17 may be parallel to the ground, it will be slightly out of line with the top tube, which looks kind of odd. I reckon a -17 still looks better than a -7 though, unless a -7 would remove all the spacers but I don't think that's the case here.

That is true, but in that size of frame the headtube angle is likely less than 73 degrees so it a going to be slightly up anyway. But regardless, it’s close enough. I get what you’re saying though... really don’t like the look of -17 stems with significantly sloping top tubes.

in my opinion Extralite Hyperstem 12 degree is perfect for Supersix

I took your advice calnago - although I went for a -10 pro vibe rather than a -17. I reckon it looks better than the stock Cannondale C2 -6 Stem and tidies-up the front end by concealing the Di2 junction box. It also feels much sturdier..

Looks good, and yes, easy to hide the junction box etc. I like the -10 angle here too. It’s a solid piece of kit.
