Is there a 2020/2021 test pipeline? Curious how new aeroroad and Factor Ostro will do against these other bikes.

RANK MAKE YEAR WATTS @ 45KPH

01 Cannondale SystemSix Disc 2019 203
02 Specialized Venge ViAS 2016 204
02 Trek Madone 2016 204
04 Cervelo S5 2016 205
04 Felt AR FRD 2016 205
I wonder where the first generation Venge would fall on this list, if anyone has a back issue of this magazine. I remember there being hearsay about the 1st gen Venge being similar to the Allez Sprint... but I'd like to know for sure.

I appreciate standardizing the wheels for testing, but it would also be interesting to see the same list with whatever wheels they come with stock. :thumbup:

I'm lazy, someone should compile a list for the forum. :lol:

Thanks! I'll look through. Def interested in seeing the SL7 and new Aeroad in this year's test.

SystemSix still looking pretty good after a couple years out in terms of aero. Do people just hate the way they ride? No one talks about them when considering gettting an aero(ish) bike.

No one really talks about the Timemachine Road, Noah Fast, Giant Propel, etc. either. The aero market seems dominated by the Venge, Madone, Aeroad. The Cervelo S5 gets some talk time, lately for the wrong reasons...then again Hirschi has it back in the spotlight.

True, but the Systemsix is the fastest bike tested; seems like more would be interested in that. The Fast, Look, Timemachine, etc are nearly 8-10 watts off the Systemsix.

I am very happy with mine, I also like the fact that not everyone has one. I came from a 2016 Scott Foil Team and the SystemSix is a huge upgrade. The Scott was very blah...
System Six offers excellent handling, relatively smooth ride and 8.0kg for mine. Madones, Venges are a dime a dozen around here. Oh and it's nice knowing you have the fastet bike on the ride.

It rides great, i had it. But it's ugly and you need to swap lot of components to make it at least 7.4kg.
