I don’t know why everyone is so against aero disc - look at the success of the ViAS under QS and Bora Riders.

Coz they look bad and not everyone needs/wants disc brakes?
:hello:
Cannondale Supersix 2008 (weight: 7.3kg)
B'twin Triban 540 (in bits)
Vitus "Benotto" 979 (weight: :? )

Because many of us have a collection of high-spec/expensive rim brake based wheels which I would like to use in an aero-bike. I still feel that the current road brake disc standards are in flux and what you buy now might not be around in five years time in terms of rotor and hubs designs.

You don’t have to buy a disc brake bike.
As long as both rim/ disc brakes are offered I think it is great!

I'm gonna cry if they don't do a rim brake version (ala propel).

This.

Still, simply curious to see Cannondale's aero bike (discs or no discs), especially since it is the first ever they would be doing.

who knows whether this SystemSix (and of course next Supersix) in team paint scheme will have fuxia-pink accents like EF-Drapac team kit..

This is my resistance to discs. That said, I'm less concerned about my existing wheels than I am the lack of standards for disc wheels. Some are using Quick Releases. Some are using Through Axle.

And if they all go TA, are they going to go 12 or 15 or some other number?


As for this new System Six, I do hope they do a half black, half silver paint scheme, along with some little white spider lines where the black and silver meet, as an homage to the original System Six.

all of the new disc brake road bikes go for 12 TA. but I think there's still lots of development like more aero brake calipers, better designed brake hose routing, better disc brake wheels, etc

Hello
That this shall have to go out to the max this summer, the marks having only 365 days to market their new frame since the date of ratification UCI.
I invite you to look at the races of the spring And to look for a black bike with cannondale writes in green
