As much as I like the Liquagas bikes I shutter to think what they look like in 2 years. My read 2006 (I got it in 2005) six 13 still looks awesome.
Here is my question:
So it's synapse - then six which is aluminum front and carbon rear and then super six with all carbon? If so that seems real lame they got ride of the system six - that bike was killer.
i know the synapse is made overseas, any mention of the six bike and where it's made?
OK, so what is the difference between the HM and the regular super six? It's lugs, right? So what is the difference ride wise? Is it stiffer, lighter - both. And the six carbon is that the synapse? Anyone know where the Six is made? Is it really a CAAD front end with carbon rear? That setup seems so early 2000 where everyone was putting out a frame like that.the Inbred said:Super Six HM (US)
Super Six (US)
Six Carbon (Asia full carbon)
Six (Alu front, full carbon rear)

I can't answer your questions...I just saw the catalog at work. I'd assume the HM is simply lighter.velomonkey said:OK, so what is the difference between the HM and the regular super six?

I myself thought the system six was a great ride. Really refined over my six 13. Don't get me wrong, I like my six 13, but the system six just seemed like the real level up from the good ol CAAD al frame (which is still a great bike).
I'm excited, but confused.
Velonews' article about Bennati's custom Super said:The material differs from the stock version as well. While the production SuperSix uses a blend of mid- and high-modulus carbon fiber Bennati’s bike is made entirely from high-modulus fiber. This bumps the chassis stiffness higher by roughly 20 percent, Cannondale says,. It also shaves between 50 and 100 grams from the weight (an exact comparison can’t be given because the bike’s custom size sits between two production models).
“You learn some things along the way,” he said. “You may see components of Bennati’s requests in the near future.” Struve and Davis confirmed that Cannondale will indeed incorporate these changes into a new model.
no way, look at the top tube; it's almost triangular near the head tube.cryoplasm said:That Six looks like a CAAD8 front end.
I was looking at the down tube near the head tube. Maybe it looks more like CAAD 7.colins said:no way, look at the top tube; it's almost triangular near the head tube.
After looking at the pictures that STARNUT posted on WeightWeenies, it seems as though it will be difficult to buy any model without a hint a red on it.
I hate to break it to you, but it was dumb the first time you said it. The second time however it is outright annoying.shabbasuraj said:join the club..
LOL ...seems like the CANUCKDALE marketing guru's have done their job...
I say rename all the models with different Quebecois names...
(and avoid using the ultra cheesy prefix of 'SUPER')
... come on CANUCKDALE so some originality. Your designs warrant it.
unless of course.. this company is just headed towards anonymity after brand dilution do to the acquisition of the brand...
Look here. for the future..
