Strengths:    Its a C'dale.
Climbing prowess.

Weaknesses:    Wgt (9+kgs)
Heavy stock wheelset (mavic cxp22)+ c'dale hubs
C'dale C2 seatpost (carbon-wrapped-wt..?)

Bottom Line:   
Re: C'dale Carbon six 6 '09
Purchased above bike on sale/clearance. Being my second road bike, i found the C'dale good value (C'dale stock parts; 105 spec). Being a rec rider, yet to test its race potential. Was amazed with the massive BB but disappointed with its wgt (~9kgs). No probs with FSA Omega cranks (just some tweaking req). Bike shows amazing compliance and climbing prowess despite its wgt. Steering is intuitive and responsive. Love the decals and race red tone.

Strengths:    Good overall performance, looks.

Weaknesses:    None noted yet!

Bottom Line:   
I have the 2009 Six Carbon 1 frame that replaced a defective Six13. Ride quality/stability (especially at high speed) is much better than my Six13. Very smooth on descent with minimal drift; holds lines beautifully. BB/rear triangle seems to deliver power very well too. Frame lines look great and it weighs 16.03 (no pedals) in size 58!

Strengths:    Efficient power transfer, vertical compliance, carbon fiber eases road vibrations, handles well in all situations, and overall bling.

Weaknesses:    FSA Omega Compact Crank/chainrings were a nightmare for me-perhaps due to being a neophyte roady, but I didn't have one carefree ride until upgrading to Shimano 105 bottom bracket/chainrings/crank/chain.

Bottom Line:   
I'm reviewing the Cannondale Six Carbon 6, 2009 model. This was the closet match to my bike. I've ridden 1,900 miles in 5 months and absolutely love the lightness, ease of climbing hills and intuitive feel of this bike. I did learn my lesson, though, with the FSA Omega Compact crank/FSA Exo bottom bracket-they caused nothing but pain for the first 3 months. The bike was constantly in the shop due to poor shifting. What a headache. I upgraded the bottom bracket/crank/chainrings to Shimano 105 and it's been a dream since. Not even an adjustment since hitting the road with the upgrade. Overall, love the bike. I'm 6'3", 220lbs and this bike is getting the job done!

Strengths:    Fast, good quality and light considering it is not the highest end super six.Dura Ace shifters, derailers

Weaknesses:    Cannondale carbon brakes.
Shimano Dura Ace shifters(good but prefer Campy and Sram neatness of cables)

Bottom Line:   
First of all it is a beautiful bike.It is fast, comforatable and responsive. It has a very good setup except for the Cannondale C1 calipers.
