First you get loads of people saying they hope the Evo doesn't change that much because it's a classic frame with a great aesthetic, then when the CAAD12 gets shown with a bunch of new tube designs, totally new back end and possibly new construction technique and it's underwhelming because the aesthetic isn't completely different to the 10.

Make up your minds, guys! :lol:

I like the color. Hopefully they do some nice solid colors without all the weird decals they tend to throw on their frames.

I worry about the vulnerability of the cable in the dropout there when changing wheels over. Might be unfounded.

The cable looks quite high in the dropout compared to the nut on the end of the QR, so unless you are using a massive QR (turbo QR maybe) or are unable to get a wheel straight in the dropouts I can't see it being a problem. I would have hoped Cannondale have done enought testing/wheel changes to see if it a problem.

On the CAAD10 Black Inc Disc (2015 Model) the cable exits the frame from the (upper) chain-stay and goes straight to the RD, which in my opinion appears to be more elegant. Many manufacturers are using the same design as shown on the 2016 CAAD12, so I guess it is working better?

Is Di2 going to fit through there though. Looks like 2 framesets again.

Possibly New Evo? Might just be paint.. I read on another forum someone said they were riding on a Cannondale sponsored team and there would be no "significant" change to the top end line of road bikes until next year since Damon Rinard is still new to Cannondale... who knows!

Thank you! I have been googling for new pictures almost daily. Will make it easier to decide whether or not to switch back to Cannondale this summer.

Well, looks like I'll start waiting for the 2017 models...

The new adventure bike looks nice, but other than that, nothing that would tempt me back yet.

Looks like less and less high-end models have non-OEM wheels as well. I am sure the CZero wheels are ok, but I would never take them over a pair of Enve or Mavic.

Same cost cutting seems to spill over to cranksets and chainrings.

Too bad... With prices going up at the same time, harder and harder to justify paying the premium prices.
