Personally if I was running a lot of steerer and not the Knot stem on one of these I’d use conventional spacers above just one of the integrated spacers and leave the brake lines exposed; it’s a lot less offensive than their spacers.

It seems it’s just the combo of lots of spacers and a conventional stem that is so nausea inducing. As soon as you slam the conventional stem (I think that what was in the video) or have the knot stem, particularly with electric, it looks pretty good to me.

Depending on price and weight tomorrow this could be a real contender for me, particularly in the EF replica purple (despite the large name on the DT, I prefer the discrete one on the TT most of them have). The other options I’m close to are the new Izalco Max or the Chapter 2 Tere; ironically all three look almost identical in frame design, far more so that the Addict and Tarmac everyone is comparing the SS to

Yeah, I'm tempted by the EF one, once we see real pics, not renders anyway.

I saw one a few hours ago, basically a System6 with slimmer tubing. 29mm wide rims.

There were pictures of the bike earlier in the thread with Vision Metron integrated bar. I think that, or somethign similar, is what I'd go for, if I was buying this. The one-piece stem and bar look good, slick, and hide the cables. Cannondale's system for cables being routed into the tube from the bar should accomodate this pretty easily, I would think.

Their KNOT bar and spacers definitely isn't a looker. And I don't know what they were thinking with that Garmin attachment at the top - both ugly and worse for aero, since the device sits higher than the top of the stem, rather than in-line with it.

Does anyone know what time the official launch is? Want to get my hands on the usual Dale white paper...

Interesting that they chose the long rake fork also for the 54. I guess it has to to with volume. If they only designed the three smallest frames to use it it would not have been cost efficient I guess.
That they actually have two rakes is a good thing. Not many do and that makes small frames weird to steer.

I did not see the evo3 numbers yet, but from what you explain it seems similar to the synapse (where the wheelbase is also larger on the 54 than on the 56). the 54 seems also a bit of an outlier geo wise in the synapse range. maybe someone that has one or rode it can chime in.

I like the new geometry. Considering the weight and aero benefit, this is definitely a top contender for me as a next bike.
