G. as mentioned in the other thread I had both the 07 and 08 System six and let them go to get an 09 Hi mod Super.I went back to my Caad 8 as a daily ride and while a nice frame/DA crank combo, it was nowhere as responsive,stiff (especially the front end ), nor did it transfer the power like the System.As it turned out the 09 Super was not the huge leap in weight or compliance I thought it would be so I bought another 07 System 6 - that's how much I missed it ! Keep in mind that some of this has to do with the Si crank so it's not all in the frame. If the Caad had the tapered fork along with the BB30 that might have been the way to go.I would stay away from the new Six or Six Carbon.
By the way if the 2010 Super comes with the all changes as expected I will not hesitate to get it but will hold on to the 07 System 6 !

for the moment I have a caad9 and system six 08, some peoples told me that S6 2007 was better than S6 2008, but I can feel the difference, I guess the 2007 was stiffer?? I like my caad9, and I wanted sell my system six to buy a super six 2008, but I'M not sure yet!!!!

do you think the caad9 is still a good frame??
Yes,it's a good frame,especially now with BB30 but it's no System Six !
If you were replacing it with the 09 then maybe but I wouldn't swap for the 08 Super.
