I just received my SuperSix Evo frame in EF colors 2021 yesterday.
Frame including metal insert in the headtube for protection.
Size 56, weight 880gr including hanger.
I opted for a zero offset Cannondale seatpost as the Darimo option is about 8 weeks delivery.
How can I make the Cannondale post lighter?
Ti bolts and carbon cradle? Which one would you guys advise?

I found this on r2 from KCNC. Can use it in combi with Schmolke Ti screws 40 and 50mm.

For the MCFK cradle, you mean this?:

Roughly what is the weight of the standard Cannondale setback seatpost on this bike? I am interested in the Darimo version

I haven't weighted mine but should be 170gr roughly.
You should be able to gain 20-30grams with a different saddle clamp.
Darimo will be 100-110grams.

Are We Getting A New Cannondale Supersix?

I hope I will get one - at least a new replacement frame, after discovering that the built-in automatic self-destcruction mechanism of my 2020 SS Evo has delaminated my head tube.

No crash.

Very talented engineers @ Cannondale :thumbup:

Hopefully they will make changes that fix the integrated seatclamp / seat tube cracking issues for MY22, as they did in MY21 to fix the headtube destroyer.

Both are pretty ridiculous for a €4000 frameset.

Either way, they seem to be out of MY21.

I noticed some cheap direct mount hangers on Ali Express, anybody tried them?

Mine turned up last week and fitted it over the weekend. I have to admit I wasn't expecting much for $5 but it's actually really well made and well finished. It fitted up very easily and shifting is as perfect as it was with the standard setup. No it's not a performance gamechanger but kinda cool and adds a bit of interest

Cannondale's price does seem a bit off compared to what they are selling. I've been looking at the market and the supersix (due to its geometry) has been one of the top picks for me. But then also specialized bikes are and I don't seem them making these mistakes for basically the same price (maybe a bit more expensive but also a bit lighter).

I got one too, and agree with you. I wasn't expecting much, but the shiting for me is noticably crisper, and it looks pretty good. Have recommended it already to my other friends with SS Evo's.

Cant really see much difference, besides all the goo in the new pic. I thought there's supposed to be a metal insert in the new frames? Maybe I just don't see it ... 🤔
