Also comes with the new SiSL2 crank
not too bad for 11.7k, how much would that be individually for parts?
I think if they are stating the weight it would be pretty close to the stated weight, if not right on.
I'm a Cannondale guy, but I also smell bullsh*t quickly.
I think you'll find their weights are pretty good on this one.
Love the * on the weight, because it sure as hell doesn't weigh 695gms. That is the Tour mag normalized nonsense weight.
Maybe this new one will actually weigh what they pretend it does!
( Mods - bbcode to resize image didn't work when I tried, the above is a tad on the large size )
I don't think Cannondale can get away with such blatant misinformation this time. The existing lightest headline Evo frame is troublesome to weigh as it comes as a complete bike. The Nano claimed weight is for the complete bike.
I hope thats true for the person who has just payed all that money for such a bike. If the bike does not weigh the advertised weight they should be made to give back $100 for every gram over.
They won't though..
As long as the mamil's who have a little bit of the WW bug take the bait these things will sell..
I am not a big fan of marketing.
The EVO NANO, very well, may be 40gm lighter because:
-they are using hardly any paint (less the the first EVO sl)
-perhaps different (lighter) paint
(like with the BH superlight and how they had Parlee help them do a super-light paint job)
I could be wrong, but when a company goes from there (great frames) like the HI-Mod and drop like 250-300gm and intro the Evo SL
........then a year, or so later, they say they have an NANO as if they redisigned a, relatively, new frame (by only 40 gms....claimed )
.....odds are it's marketing (as if they "redisigned the layup" or some "magic resin reducing technology" or something)(but, 40gm is 40gm too ....claimed.....even if it is paint )
I could be wrong, but I would bet, heavily, that the reduction of 40gm does NOT come from a difference in the frame of the Evo SL to the Evo NANO (I would bet it is a diference in paint)
I guess I am cynical
(P.S. this is not intended to sound intense )

I don't see how they get to 5.2kg with that build, even without pedals. Unless they've splashed out on a Ti bolt kit, superlight cables and DA9000 is a lot lighter than I thought - it just doesn't make sense to me.
