Super6 is not heavy. But you should wisely choose components:) it is really not a problem to make it sub 6.8 kgs without exotic weightweenie components. The biggest weight problem is the default barstem combo, but there are nice alternatives.

Hm the colorways of 2021 seems a bit dull. I really liked the stripes! Looks like a few new components, and maybe the integrated cockpit on the ultegra version.

Reminds me of Chinese open mold frames with the single tone paintjob and the only decal being a small text logo in the toptube and the UCI sticker.

Love them personally, these colors usually come alive in real life...

And if one thing is as sure as death, it's people here complaining about paint jobs no matter what Cannondale does: Logo is too big, I'm not a billboard! What are these stripes? Black again? Too plain! Logo is too small? Why not add stripes? :mrgreen:

Asian bike shops posted them, I had seen the blue and this white/silver one weeks ago on facebook but couldn't find them again until today, they were probably asked to wait to post them...

There are CAAD13s here, I have not come across 2021 SystemSix models yet.

There is one here (alongside some SS Evo's), but please make sure you have a bucket nearby before opening the link: https://www.hupleong.co/cannondale?cate ... 8Carbon%29

You know that's not the whole range right? There might still be a few rim brake models as was the case this year.

Hopefully they fixed the clearance issue for AXS drivetrains...

Not sure if they did or not either. I got the replacement SystemSix finally after 3 months from receiving the first SuperSix until now. SystemSix does NOT have clearance problems. But is heavy. The solid colors could be to help with this - reducing layers of paint for multiple colours. But I still think the mold is the culprit on the Supersix. I don't get why Cannondale doesn't make their lives easier and put the derailleur hanger on the inside of the chain stay on all their bikes. They wouldn't be running into this problem. Look at 99% of top end bikes and the thru axle hanger is on the inside.

I will say that the Cannondale paint schemes are much better in person than on any picture. I got a Topstone that is way better looking in person than in pictures (ultegra green/blue). The Supersix Evo I got (Hi-mod Dura-Ace in green) looks much better in person. Although I am still having it painted I did consider keeping it because it looks that much better in real life than in the pictures. I have seen the white/black model also in person and it looks great. None of them photograph well for some reason. All that said all the options are rather subdued and for some reason Cannondale goes from one extreme to the other with lettering...either they have plastered Cannondale and the model on every area or none at all.
