The first few are ok. I like the EF purple one. But that last peach colored one... that’s terrible. I’m curious how many of those they’ll sell

Specialized and trek are killing it with their paint jobs. Too bad Cannondale are just meh

The branding/graphics on the Hollowgram Si crankset is bad. Just bad. The SiSL2 still looks great, what was wrong with the Si crank arm looking almost the same?

Paint is better than last year, though almost anything would be, but ya it is still bad. I'm a huge Cannondale fan but I don't think they've had a good paint job since 2016 on anything (stock). The new Supersixes are only ok (apart from the EF one which is nice), but pretty bland. Totally agree that Trek is killing it. Specialized are good, they're "safe" but certainly nothing to complain about.

I still can't get over that little notch between the fork crown and the bottom of the headtube. Something just seems wrong. I don't care how fast this bike is the looks would keep me away. Oh well.

I got this reply from European distributor (via local dealer)

K26080 is the one for the 15mm offset, which looks like 0 offset.

So the european dealer doesn’t know.

@damon

I have quite an issue with chain drop. It occurs under heavy load (sprinting, starting from a standing position) and when in 52/11 combination. I have the stamdard setup with FSA 52/36 rings and 11-30 cassette. Have tried new chain, other rings (Praxis Works) and other wheels as well. Still chain drop when sprinting in the 52/11 combination.

Is this an issue you are familiar with?

I've searched through this thread already and read that a few of you that are 5'7" with a 30" inseam have the 51cm. This apparently comes with a 400mm handlebar and 100mm stem, and 172.5mm cranks.

Right now I have a size 50 (525mm top tube) Pinarello Dogma 65.1 Think 2 with 1cm spacer under the stem, and a 100mm -17 degree stem. Saddle tip is 22mm behind the bottom bracket, with 170mm cranks. Stack is 520mm for both frames, reach is 7mm more on the SystemSix while the top tube is 4mm longer than the Dogma.

I'd just like to make sure that this is achievable on the SystemSix before I buy one, without needing too many spacers (likely won't be an issue) or without needing a ridiculously long stem..

172.5 cranks on a small bike seems a bit mean of them!

Haha my thoughts exactly, seems strange they would put anything more than 170mm on the smallest sizes..

Looking into a system six. Will run 25mm conti 5000s.. do I go Knot 64 or Enve 5.6? Which will be faster with these tyres? Damion?

The KNØT 64s will almost surely be faster based on the additional 1cm of front rim depth.

C-Dale should take some heat for how poor they look in the photos
I've seen a few Supers, and Sytems in the wild, and they look sharp
