I have thought about Jagwires in green. But I need to find them in a store so I can be sure they'll match the green on m bike 100%. At leat on the photo they look too dark. But lime cable housings and lime Speedplays are definitely on my list of upgrades.

Love that Supersix! I have the same bike and have already installed the lime tires, but with al green bar tape.

Where did you get that 5mm head tube top cap? The stock one will not let me reduce stack height enough!. Any suggestions, I love a similar setup to yours.

Regards,

The 5 mm top cop is underneat the other top cap. You can just pick it out.

Got some new wheels for this season... Got a pair of 2012 Mavic Cosmic Carbone SL as I would like to use them for everyday use. Removed the green tires and added some Continental GP4000S tires.

Maybe it's just the background, but it looks too busy. Unless Mavic gave you the wheels I'd ditch the little yellow stickers on the frame, probably the Cosmic decals on the wheels as well. Otherwise it looks great.

yeah, maybe the one magic sticker would be ok, but the rest are too much

The small mavic stickers came with the wheels so I just threw them on the frame... I won't keep them for more than a few weeks as I agree it's too much.

I'm probably going to order some custom stickers for the wheels. Same design but only outlined in white and black in the middle so it won't look so massive.

looks good with the wheels :thumbup:
ditch those bottles please (and the dodgy bar tape)


But most of all- Fit your tyres properly please!!! If for no other reason than it looks like you've taken it to the lbs and the saturday kid has stuck them on..presentation shows you care 8)

How should I mount the tires so it's done properly? So the text is centered above the Cosmic stickers or between the spaces?

So the text is centered on the valve stem......like on a tubbie :thumbup:

Bike looks sick with the new shoes, btw!! :beerchug:

I would recommend above the valve stem. this way it's also easier to find when inflating tires, changing a flat etc.

That's what my OCD keeps telling me :P



PS: Your frame was probably the only one I've seen so far which looked better with coloured tires.

Also I'm still looking for one of those pit stands ! :cry:

Newest iteration of my SuperSix. Changed the Deda Zero 100 Servizio Corse stem to a white one and changed the Cannondale seatpost to a white Deda Zero 100 seatpost. Also changed out the handlebar tape to red. Bought a set of Schwalbe Ultremo R.1 tires with thin red stripes but didn't look good when mounted so they will go back to the bike shop.
