Faster SuperSIX Evo

20mm wheels is light but not so fast, at least not for my mind. And as you’ve seen before I got a set of beautiful Mavic Cosmic Carbone Ultimate as a nice upgrader, will do a lot for the speed. At least with the placebo effect. Weight including glue and 22mm Continental Competition tyres:

If the tires are 260g/each as Continental says and the glue 30g the wheelset is 1149g 😀 Without the stickers that was 23g.

Nice blue upgrade with a Tune Schruabwürger

Saving 7g. The best weightsaving was my new handlebar, a Deda Superleggera with Dedas RHMbend, saved 76g(!)

And it was as announced, strange for Deda. The wheels are heavier than my FFWD F2R, tires are heavier so altogether a little heavier but much nicer I think, or what do you say for this 6075g bike:

Thinking of a setback seatpost from Engage or AX-Lightness and a new stem but have to try it with the new bar before knowing what I need. What do you think of it?

bike of the week: SuperSIX Evo

Is there some colour I don’t like it’s black, black and stealth bikes. Like colours like a Mondrian Look, a Lampre Wilier La Roi, Time VXRS World Star Ulteam or why not a Cannondale SuperSIX Evo in replica colours:

So when I got the possibility to get a cheap used SuperSIX Evo frame I wasn’t so slow of changing. Hoped to save some weight too but it’s not a hi-mod so pretty heavy (to be an Evo). But can be good anyway and it’s a frame with nice features that same some weight. Integrated brake wire to rearbrake without housing ends, pretty short housings needed to so saved some weight. PF30 usually saves weight compared to a normal BSA frame but as I want to ride my Campagnolo Super Record crank with Rotor Q-rings it wasn’t that light.

Anyway, got a set of awesome looking and lightweight brakes:

Light b-t-p brake shoes. But as you maybe can see I have a heavy weight handlebar. 40cm and 256g, but like it. Super Record rear derailleur with Chorus 12-25 cassette and Record chain (lighter than KMC X11SL)

IMAG0583

 

It’s a bit heavier than my old Sram Red but like Campagnolo so much more. Also got a 11-23 Record cassette if I want to save some weight and ride fast but with the climbs here it’s nice with a 25. Campagnolo Super Record compact crankset with 36/50 Rotor Q-Rings and a Super Record front derailleur. Time Xpresso8 pedals:

And one more on the complete bike, now against the wall:

Thinking of changing the stem for a more suitable after I tried it. And maybe POP-Products spacers in some other colour 😉

Total weight should be 6030g but not all sure as I haven’t hanged it on a scale complete.

The EVOlution part 2

Bought a set of bottom bracket cups at work today. PF30 to Campagnolo Ultra Torque, not the best solution if you read about adapters and PF30 but I like my Super Record crank so had to try. Cannondale and Campagnolo is always a nice combo too. Some small adjustments and waiting for a seatpost so not finished yet but looks like this:

Looks like the handlebar is huge on the bike when it doesn’t have a seat and seatpost. But just normal Deda Newton Shallow handlebar in size 40 c-c. What do you think about it? change for black hoods? 😉
