What is the weight of your Supersix frame?

Also, is the carbon, carbon weave, etc., (and thus, weight and stiffness) different on the Supersix from the Supersix 3 up through the team and ultimate? I would think the carbon weave would be improved on, e.g., the ultimate over the 3; however, I can't seem to find any info on it.

The painted frame is heavier than the non-painted. There are threads on various forums related to this. I saw a Supersix in 58 painted weigh in at 1225 gram. Cannondale claimed weight is 1060 for non-painted I believe?? A non-painted super will be lighter than a system six.

The SuperSix while ridiculously stiff and very comfortable (for a pure race bike) is not the lightest frame. My 52 cm SuperSix with the Si alum cranks, Campy Record, FSA stem, Alien USE seatpost, the new (and slightly lighter) Arione CX saddle, Fulcrum Racing Speed 1 clinchers, and LOOK Keo pedals weighs in at 16.4 lbs. That's a touch heavier than virtually the same set up I have on my 2006 Six13. Having said that, Roman Kreuziger today won the mountain ITT in the Tour de Suisse and last month Franco Pelizzotti won the mountain ITT in the Giro -- both rode on the SuperSix. So no need to get too hung up on the weight of the frame.

fornaca68: nice info. i am looking at the team edition so i can have record and the fulcrum racing wheels - real similar to your bike. i ride a low end cdale now and can climb like a gazzelle on it. i could get a nice deal on a pinarello so i am trying to find anyway i can to compare them.

I'm surprised your bike weighs that. My 56 Super six with the lower end carbon cranks, Sram Rival, Ksyrium ES clinchers, Selle SLR gel saddle, Look Keo pedals, Alien Use post, Cannondale C6 stem, and cages weighs the same 16.4lbs.

I'm not overly impressed with the Supersix as a weight weenie. I have a 56 Team Replica, and it was over 16 lbs. from the factory. After some changes (Fulcrum Racing 1 to Zipp 303 w/ Vittoria Crono CS, Arione to Team Toupe saddle, Record Pro-Fit pedals, Polar CS600 power, Cannondale carbon cages) and it was down to 14.9.

Not surprising -- Fulcrum Racing Speed 1s are not as light as Ksyrium ES -- that's about a 150-gram difference in your favor -- the Campy Record in my favor makes up the slightly additional weight on your SRAM rival. Your saddle might be lighter than the Arione too. So I can see how ours weigh the same.
