Not a fan of all black bikes. The tires and hubs are just enough, love it.

RIDICULOUS!!

Ridiculously beautiful!

I have a few friends with the Caad10, Supersix (Original), Supersix Evo and Hi-Mod. Since you had the Supersix did you find the Hi-mod more comfortable? From what i heard, the Hi-Mod was more refined as stiffer, more comfortable but less bone rattling than the Supersix.

Any thoughts

Man that is purdy. Those tires are what really make it, though, especially with the deep carbon wheels.

Tan tires should be mandatory on carbon rims.

First ride on the bike today, did 50 miles. Since I tore my other bike down and this bike didn't show up on time, I hadn't ridden in 2 weeks. Holy crap I forgot how much effect that can have on your recovery! Felt sluggish and tired after hard efforts. Was Much more stiff than my supersix, which resulted in an odd feeling when sprinting or climbing out of the saddle. The stiffer frame of the evo felt different, almost like I wasnt getting as much power down. After 20'ish miles I started to get a better feel for the stiffness. Bike felt a bit "snappier". Even though I felt sluggish, I did take 3 seconds on my favorite sprint segment and claimed a KOM that I have been hunting down for the last 2 months.
I have the steering tube cut 15mm shorter than my supersix was. Didn't notice much of a difference during the ride. Gonna ride this for a while before trying to slam it though. Position felt great. Sworks saddle felt really good, no chafing which is always a plus. What a lovely bike. I'm really going to enjoy riding it!

Wow. Just wow. Amazing. Best Evo ever.

How do you find the shifting on those Praxis rings? Considering a set, but kind of nervous about leaving the Shimano shifting ecosystem.

+1!!

Completely agree!! Love the all stealth with gum wall look!! Nicely done! If a bike can simply look fast...then this one does!
