Cannondale SuperSix EVO

Filed under: Training — Andrea @ 11:49 am

I’ve had this bike since about the middle of the month, but it’s taken some tweaking to get it exactly how I like it. Essentially, this is the most awesome road bike ever (ok, if it had a set of carbon clincher wheels, that would be awesome-er, but that’s just splitting hairs). It’s equally as stiff as my previous bike- the BH Connect, but much lighter (some of that weight is frame, some is components). It makes me want to climb hills all day.

Here’s the original spec from Cannondale’s site. As you’ll see below, I swapped the stem/seatpost (the post that came with it looked janky and the stem was only 90mm, so I got the matching EC90 set from Easton), saddle (0nly one I like to ride), chainrings, and tires (the Mavic griplink/powerlink tires were scrawny- a hair under 22mm wide, so I installed some Maxxis Padrone tubleless tires). Final weight- 14 pounds, 3 ounces…

  1. Hi, I’m also having very first world chainring issues and ended up here after some searching. Have the fsa rings that came with your evo worked out ok with the new cannondale quarq?

    Thanks for any help you can give, and after reading some posts I’m glad I stumbled upon your blog.

  2. My EVO came with the new Hollowgram SL crank and OPI Spider Ring, and I removed that to install the Quarq and a set of 110bcd FSA Chainrings. It works fine- the new SRAM Red shifts as fast as a Di2 setup.

  3. [...] As you might recall, I received my Cannondale SuperSix EVO (women’s edition) back in October. If you’ve forgotten/missed it,  here’s a link: http://www.brickhouseracing.com/?p=4861 [...]
