Praying they dont follow the dropped seatstay trend. I suppose thats the direction all other manufacturers are heading

There had been rumours and now there's even leaked pictures where it's clear it's happening, but I'm sure if you pray hard enough the dropped seatstays are going to disappear

Looking on Cannondale pro’s Instagram they’re obviously hiding the front of the bike, all you can see are the dropped stays.
Looks very similar in shape to the Caad13. As long as it retains some of the Cannondale style DNA I’m happy.

Grey looks suspicious, but notice it has rim brakes...

... so the new Evo might have them after all?

Also, it has apparent sloping top tube and quite fat downtube, so, at the first glance, even more Tarmac-esque than one initially would think.

Both frames appear in the uci approved list for a month already so not a surprise there.

Yes we knew there would be disc and rim brakes for a while now. Someone even posted a clear close-up of Mike Woods' bike with the direct mount rear rim brake on page 2 here.

The top tube is sloping a little more as sizes get smaller, just like current Evo (look at Rigo's bike in the video, old bike, also sloping) but bigger bikes have a much more horizontal top tube. The top tubes have a flattish top side, get very thin towards the seat tube when viewed from the side.

Likely gray is being used for pre-production frames to keep as under wraps as possible. Colors will be announced at launch.
