Let's hope that's at least 95 grams of paint 'n decals... That fork, however, looks quite on the money!

How many agree that this frame should be 'Carbolifted'?! Or has anyone bought an Evo Ultimate yet and is willing to take its parts off for the sake of some WW scale candy? :mrgreen:

Except they already sell one without the anchor-weight white...

Impressive on that fork.

Thats my bike, I believe it's clear coated not sure how much that adds. Swapped a 167 gram Red cassette vs the 246 gram 1070 that it came with today, still heavy.

Swap the Red chainrings for Force, which are quite light. And obviously the wheels are heavy.

I also think it's interesting that Sagan isn't riding the new Evo. If it is as stiff etc... as they say it is, why is Sagan preferring to ride & sprint the old Supersix?

What do those who have bought and are riding the new Evo think of the ride compared to the 'old' Supersix?

I have. So far the only 'reviews' are from people who have test ridden the bike for <1 day - hence why I stated people who have 'bought' and are 'riding' the new Evo provide feedback. One ride does not an objective, real-world review make.

I prefer the look of the Force rings, has anyone weighed them both?

Response, simple as that. Unless you get miles under the belt there is little point changing bikes. Off-season say is good time to change.
