BallisTec Carbon

    Ive been riding cannondales now for 6 years starting with the 613 and supersix and now the evo, and they ve all been good but the evo is the best of course Ive upgraded all the way since the 613 for good reason I love to ride bikes. The evo seems to handle best I rode the supersix quite abit and havent yet had the evo long enough but my first thoughts are all good, its a dream, handles great, the sram red groupo shifts and preforms great. I havent raced it, later this summer I plan to attend the national senior games in cleveland ohio cant wait to sprint my evo across the finish line.

    I hate this bike. It hasn't lived up to any of my expectations.

    The front end is very twitchy. If I'm climbing a road with a step grade, I can't slide back in the saddle because the front wheel comes up. The frame has just a bit of give. I can feel it wobble when I peddle hard; I'm about 190 lbs. My chain drops, and it gets caught behind the chain guard. It takes forever to get out, and when I finally get it out, I'm covered in grease. Just getting the bike was a bear. Initial the bike arrived in a beat up box, and it had to be sent back. Another bike had to be sent out.

    I ride between 25 and 100 miles a week. My rides are between 25 and 75 miles in distance usually over rolling hills (2k to 5k feet of climbing). I bought this bike specifically because I wanted a good climbing bike. I really can't say I've noticed anything better over my aluminum bike, which was half the price of this.

    I can't recommend this bike. I've had the bike since April of 2013. It's August of 2013, and I'm planning to sell it.

          Had the bike 1 month and have ridden about 200 miles. The bottom bracket (sram pressfit bb30) developed an annoying click and upon inspection needed replacing... after 200 miles!
          Have subsequently read the numerous forums concerning this problem and now beginning to regret the purchase. Really disappointing from Cannondale that this otherwise terrific bike is allowed to be compromised by this weak component.

                I'm 72 yrs. old & bought this bike to keep up with the younger group, & I do. It's fast, agile corners great & comes off the line like a shot. I can out climb almost everyone in my group & they're not old duffers. In fact they're mostly in their 20s&40s. It seems like all I have to do is to will it thru corners & the EVO Red goes there.

                      I came off of a Trek 2.1, I knew it was time for an upgrade. After testing this bike versus the Trek 5 series bikes, it was the hands down winner. This bike is amazing, extremely light, smooth and fast. I love the shifting on this thing, nearly instantaneous. I'm excited to finally own a great bike!

                                  My previous bikes were all mountain bikes, but I decided to give road biking a try. After doing quite a bit of homework on what was available, I decided on the Cannondale Supersix EVO Red. The bike is incredibly light and handles like a dream. Where I live, there are a lot of bike enthusiasts, but when I stop at a stop light, others compliment me on how good it looks. It rides even better...bravo Cannondale!

                                        I have bicycled for 30 years. I have owned and ridden bikes of steel, steel/carbon, aluminum, aluminum/carbon, carbon and a custom made-for-me titanium/carbon. My fastest speed on a bike has been 50 mph, passsing traffic on twisty mountain decents. I have owned and worn out more bikes than I can even remember. The handling of my new 63cm EVO SM is nothing short of STUNNING! It is the most efficient, most stable and smoothest I have ever ridden. It amazed me how easily I chased some youngsters down last evening, and then casually motored away. Thanks Cannondale.

                                              I truly expected Cannondale to deliver a road bike that performs. My Supersix Evo Red (in black) does just that. It is a pleasure to ride. I feel this bike will give me a chance to be my best when I visit 'the road'.
                                              In addition, it is the most beautiful product I have ever owned. Clearly, Cannondale is a leader in not only technology but design. Well done!

The bike is a rocket up hills and controlled, perfectly stiff and smooth at higher speeds and around turns. Can ride for hours but be sure to get it set up professionally. For the money, someone has to show me a better bike! Awesome. Love the bike so much I am getting a demo bike in Italy in 2 weeks. Get the bike, if you are a serious rider looking for a long-term investment. Oh, so my Slice 5 doesn't get jealous, I am off on a ride on that one!

                                                                      I use my bike for everything from commuting the 12 miles to work, a weekly time trial series, and century rides. This bike replaced my 2005 LOOK KG 451 which was spec'd with SRAM RED and Force. What I love most about this bike is the balance between power transfer and comfort. It puts the power to the pavement like a solid aluminum frame while remaing very comfortable on long rides that use some not so great roads. I have about 500 miles on it so far and have not regretted a thing. I had also considered the Synapse but don't feel that I'm quite there yet although that day will no doubt come!
                                                                      The jury is stil out on the saddle. I had a Fizik Alliante on my old bike and this Fizik Antares is a completely different feel that has me feeling that I am sitting too far back.

                                                                              I put 200 the first two weeks and I'm very impressed with the handling and the cornering. With this bike you can conquer the mountains as well. Best Bicycle that I ever own, I'm beating my competitors who ride Treks and Colnago's.

The evo seems to handle best I rode the supersix quite abit and havent yet had the evo long enough but my first thoughts are all good, its a dream, handles great, the sram red groupo shifts and preforms great. I havent raced it, later this summer I plan to attend the national senior games in cleveland ohio cant wait to sprint my evo across the finish line.

Cannondale seems to have mastered the art of frame building. The equipment is superb for the type of person that enjoys a nice bike but does not want to deal with tubulars and the like.

Even with two bottles, saddle bag, computer, pedals, and a pump, this bike is still pretty freak'n light. You feel like you can climb for days. It's nice and responsive both shifting and steering. Especially on the decents I don't feel out of control. All around grant bike, no complaints.
