Readers’ Rigs: Cannondale SuperSix Evo
Cannondale’s SuperSix Evo has been a popular bike all over the world and today we have one reader who is certainly in love with the model – and the brand having a couple of Cannondales in his collection in South Africa. The SuperSix Evo featured today is light, stiff and looks damned fine – what else could you want as reader Raymond explains….

When did you buy it?
December 2015 before the new season and base training.
What made you choose this bike?
I have 2 Cannondales and am a super fan of the brand. With Cannondale you get that Pro Tour ride with out breaking the bank plus the South African Agent “Omnico” and the shop “Chris Willemse Cycles” sales service is amazing, this is really important for me.
What modifications/additions have you done?
I have had a custom number holder made above the rear brake and the BB has a converter sleeves in it to accommodate the Dura Ace crankset.
What components are you running?
Full Dura Ace grouppo, with a Stages Dura-Ace power meter.
How many miles/kilometers do you do a year?
Approximately 12 000 km
What do you love about this bike?
It’s super responsive, comfortable and ticks all the boxes regarding looks with its classic lines.
Favorite riding area?
Franschhoek South Africa – its not uncommon to see Porsche testing their new products on the pass.
Favorite riding experience on your bike?
Racing any criterium is great nothing beats a Cannondale in the bends, you can throw it in to any corner with confidence.
Possibly a Garmin upgrade to the 820 Edge and the Fabric ALM saddle.
I’ve had many bikes before but this one is special, you know its good when every time you look at it and say to yourself “Damn thats one hot bike…”
One thing I must add I build my own bikes and this takes hours, every cable, sprocket and bearing must be prepped and cleaned before installation its a way of connecting with your bikes soul I guess.
