Does anybody have a size 56?

Can anybody tell me what is that maximum height from Center of BB to Saddle. I know that the standard seatpost is a 330mm length, but was wondering what is the max height the seatpost with saddle can be extended to without going over the monimum insert line?

According to the image this Himod frameset will cost $4799 and be available in November of 2019. Personally, I'm not sure the Himod frame is worth a $1,500 premium over the standard 105 bike. $1,5000 nets you ... ~200g saved?

Yet another odd colour for the new Evo. Burgundy for a road racing bike!? What are they thinking at Cannondale?

It's the law of diminishing returns. In any case, you can get the HiMod frameset for €3200 or even less in Europe.

That's $4799 Australian dollars, not US... so even less than €3000.

Personally, I really like that copper/sienna/whatever color! Different from the boring sea of black, white, red bikes out there...

Seat tube length for the 56 is 536 mm. Seatpost is 330 mm. Minimum insert is 65 mm. That makes 801 mm without the saddle. Depending on your saddle you should be able around 81 to 82 cm max saddle height.

I’ve got a SS Evo Carbon Disc Ultegra size 62 on order, due to be delivered in a week from now (hopefully, at last, it took >2months!!)
[...]
Got my SS Evo two weeks ago, upgraded the cranks & seatpost(-->carbon) & saddle without problems. First rides were very nice & I like it a lot.

One minor issue: The seat post clamp creaks like hell when tightened with 6 Nm, and creaks less but is not tight enough at 5 Nm. Checked it and found that the nut plate (inside the frame, attached with adhesive tape) is loose and rotated a bit, so that might be the reason. This potential issue is actually described in the manual on page 17 and they say it's a dealer's job to fix it. Will contact my bike shop about this. Has anyone else experienced this?

I have no experience with the new Evo. Could you perhaps post a picture of the relevant page(s) of the manual?

If the nut plate is loose indeed, it should be fixed, easy job, clean all the surfaces well, and put the plate back with new double-faced tape, you can get it through the dealer but I'm thinking any strong adhesive double face tape cut to the same shape should work as well.

While there, make sure the wedge is greased properly also. Basically, the surface facing the seatpost needs carbon paste, but all other surfaces and threads should be well greased.

Yes but, it's not usual to have it come loose, normally the plate is permanently fixed, I'm thinking Macallan's issue is due to an improperly install from the factory, greasy fingers or dirty bonding surface who knows, the dealer should take care of it.
