Hello!
I've just ordered the new SuSi Evo 105 Disc and as an upgrade the Knot27 Carbon seatpost with zero offset.
My plan is to upgrade the bike with Ultegra DI2 and a 50mm Aero wheelset.
But I cannot decide on a bar and stem (combination). Of course, the bar should have an internal routing of all cables.
Could you please help me with some advice what bar and stem (combination) I should buy for the bike?
Thanks a lot in advance.
Best regards Tom
I was torn on this for a long time and ended up going with the standard KNOT stuff. It was between that and the Metron, but I had concerns over cracks which seems to be fairly common. The KNOT stuff is going to look the cleanest as well. In year or two that may not be the case.

There's a fair chance I may put it on the scale and be so appauled at the weight I ebay them and order something lighter.

Nice! Post more pictures of your build. I would be curious also what the bar stem look like from the front and under from the front. What did it end up weighing?

Bike is in the shop, waiting on bars, stem, seatpost, and wheelset.

Can someone tell me which standard top cap preferably from FSA will work with the standard headset and the new SuperSix frameset?

My Hi-Mod came in last week but now at the painter and estimated to be a long 3-week wait before I can get her built up. Apologies in advance for not weighing the frame, fork and seatpost before it went over to the paint shop - my LBS got the bike stripped and sent over super fast. Build thread to come when the paint is done!

With those awkward colourschemes Cannondale are forcing customers to repaint their brand new bikes.

Looking forward to your resprayed frameset!

I just cannot say what those stripes or the little red bit add to that design...The only nice colour is the black/gold one IMO

Cannondale's new colour designs are indeed a disaster... Can't they just paint the frameset plain black (or white, blue, green, red, yellow)... Jeez!

Easiest job in world has to be the Cannondale graphics guy; literally you can create any tat and its approved for production.. He must start work at 9am, and by 9.15 he is done (for the year)
The engineers (who I think are talented) must go “WTF”

That stem reminds me of a conning tower from a u-boat.....
