The little pieces of cables under the stem probably cost 0.3 watts? The SystemSix is still more aero than competitors' bikes with completely hidden routing. In real life, you barely notice them unless you look from underneath.

There are slicker 'looking' integrations than what Cannondale has done with the SystemSix but most of the time it's a PITA to live with for maintenance and travelling. It's much easier to work on the SystemSix, say clean or change headset bearings for exemple and also easier to put it in a travel box than most other bikes with fully hidden cables.
I got some carbon vinyl wrap and wrapped/heat shrunk it over the cables. It looks much better.

Does anybody have a frame, fork and seat post weight for a high mod? Looking at potentially a 51 frame set so any help appreciated

I thought of a similar solution. Photos?

you could clean it up a lot better than this but I don't really care enough. From the front and side this looks fine.

Finally a computer mount option for the SystemSix and new Evo's KNOT stems that is bolted underneath from Raceware Direct.

For Garmin
For Wahoo

Any unofficial word yet on the 2020 SystemSix builds? Trying to decide between going for a 2019 or waiting...

New colors, I remember a Ultegra mechanical with Vision wheels, white and black or black grey/silver, there is a EF replica colorway but I think it was Ui2 with KNØT wheels... Some bike stores have posted some of them online.

The current Hi-Mod eTAP AXS is unchanged as a 2020 model too...

Did any pro rider use the systemsix at the Tour? I don't see much excitement about a bike that is supposed to be so fast...

Pros don't really care - it won't help that much in the peloton anyway.

They don't care or they don't like it? Cause if they just don't care at least some of them would ride it, no?
