Product Review- 2012 Cannondale SuperSix EVO Phase I


Over the next couple of weeks I will be building and test riding the all new for 2012 Cannondale SuperSix EVO frameset.  I will be building it close to the stock build of $11,000 but with my own twist.  I leave you now with this…

54cm frame with seatpost binder, 4 bottle cage bolts, front braze-on derailleur and bolt on rear derailleur hanger attached— 772 grams

Cannondale Fork uncut 319 grams!

  1. Hello Mike,

    Thank you for staying tuned to my blog. I got the frameset only and it’s all mine 😀 I’ve been waiting several months for it and it finally arrived. Come by the store to check it out!

    Cheers,
    george

  2. I really can’t wait to see this build come together. 10k so I am guessing di2 and Enve cockpit with Dura Ace wheels of some depth? You going with the an SI crank or something crazy like a rotor? Either way I look forward to reading along.

    • Hello Michael,

      Thank you for reading my blog. I will be placing Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 on it. I will be using my trusty Reynolds carbon bar and carbon PRO stem. Yes definitely Shimano Dura-Ace C24 wheels (best riding wheels I’ve ever ridden). I will be putting on a Shimano Dura-Ace SRM and other goodies. Please invite a friend to read my blog and subscribe to it. I have added the fork to this post at 320 grams uncut!

      Cheers,
      george

      • Sounds Good George,

        My next build will be a single speed cyclocross at some point. I took your advice and purchased some of the Dura-ace wheels last year. I had a few problems breaking spokes but Shimano sent me new c24 wheels and it has been smooth sailing ever since. I am sure your build will be fresh to death.

        • Hello Michael,

          Thank you for continuing to read my blog and taking the time to make comments.

          Sorry to hear you had issues with your first set of Dura-Ace C24 wheels. I have two solid riding/racing seasons (18k or more miles) on them without any spoke breakage. I have trued them a couple of times though. But 18,000 miles can be 3-4 seasons for an average rider.

          It may take some time to build Evelyn since I’m having so much fun riding my Serotta CSI (lugged steel).

          Cheers,
          george

  3. I have never read your blog before but I am looking to buy the Evo and you seem to be on your way to doing a very in-depth review of it. I cannot wait until the next phase of the review

    • Hello Matthew,

      Thank you for reading my blog and taking the time to post a comment.

      I will be doing a pretty thorough review of the build and test rides. Here is a review I did on the Felt F1 product-review-2011-felt-f1-felony-is-born Please stay tuned.

      Cheers,
      george

  4. Hello,

    Very nice choice you’ve made.
    I’m also considering to buy the same bike!
    I can’t see it in real life here in Belgium because no single dealer has this model in his shop.
    Is it possible to post some detailed pictures on your blog?
    Mor likley: The entrence of the wires from the chilamo DI2 system!
    Is there a whole in the headsettube?

    Kind regards and good luck with your bike

    • Hello Philip.

      Thank you for reading my blog and taking the time to make a comment.

      If you need/want an EVO let me know I’m sure I can work something out for you.

      I can take as many pictures as you would like of the bike. I will take some pictures of the Di2 specific drillings and post them on my blog for you and any other interested party.

      By the way, how did you come across my blog? Also please take the time to check out some of the links I have provided. In particular the AdventureCORPS Ultra Cycling events.

      Cheers,
      george
