                This bike is ridiculously FAST! Initially was hard on brakes to keep from pushing others who were considered fast riders. Best suited for a leader and not a follower. Frame Design and Stiffness provides constant command and control along with smooth and precise shifting. Don't believe me? I dare you to test ride one!

                      I'm really enjoying this bike, I've had a few from different makes but this SuperSix delivers on the fun factor and brings out that I want to ride it at any opportunity. Climbs effortlessly uphill and very snappy off the line and very compliant on harsh roads.

                      The black is perfect without all the in your face logo's,I'm sold to the point if any newer models are released I'm not interested.

                            I ride 150-200 miles/week. I owned a Cannondale synapse alloy prior to moving to this bike. I loved the synapse but riding a carbon frame is like silk! It's unbelievable how much road noise this frame takes away making an incredibly smooth ride. The handling is superb and the shimano ultegra drive train is laser accurate. I rode shimano 105's before and I do notice an improvement in shifting feel and quality. The seat is very comfortable with the right shorts and the geometry has a fast and racy feel. I disagree with hill climbing speeds. It does better than my aluminum synapse did but I still get passed by my friends riding light european bikes double the price of my SuperSix. The bike is well put together with a lot of carbon components standard. Overall I love the bike and can't wait to put a set of carbon clincher wheels on it to lighten it even more. As long as Cannondale makes bikes like this I'll be a customer. Thanks Cannondale!

                                  I own a CAAD10 4 Rival that I enjoy very much, but I could not help myself when I saw the Supersix 3 ULTEGRA I had to have it, but now I have the problem of which one will I ride, these two bikes I can tell you without a doubt are great bikes that I hope to enjoy for years to come.....and start saving for a SUPERSIX EVO HI-MOD TEAM ;-)

                                    Fusion. One word to describe the relationship between the Cannondale Supersix Ultegra, the road and the ride.
                                    It doesn't feel like I am riding a bike down the asphalt. It feels like I am transformed into the bike and I am gliding across a smooth glass lake.
                                    This is my 1st road bike and I knew I was going big but I never expected to have this much satisfaction with a simple machine. Recently I've got into competing in triathlons (mostly for fun) and my first one was a Half Ironman. The race was in September and I got the bike in mid July and expected to be way behind the power curve come race day. I grossly underestimated this bike. After getting adjusted to clip in pedals and a light frame bike I was riding 40-60 miles within 4 weeks! Before that riding 15 miles on a hybrid mountain bike was a chore. Come race day I was more worried about the 1.2 mile swim than the 56 mile ride.
                                    I don't have any real complaints or issues with this bike. Aside from normal wear & tear this bike operates flawlessly.
                                    Shifting is smooth, the frame is extremely responsive and it looks great! I've only had this bike for a year but there hasn't been a need to upgrade any components or service any parts other than the occasional tune up.

                                    Endstate - Although I don't have any other bike brands/models to compare my Supersix Ultegra to, I can't imagine them being much better.

                                      This is my "gym membership" that doubles as a sanity connection.

                                      I traded my perfect two year old Trek hybrid in as it was simply too slow. This bike is a night and day difference. It is engineered to climb easier, it seems to utilize my energy much more effectively than any bike I have ever owned.

                                      This truly is the best bike I have ever owned!

                                      My dealer, Bike America in Overland Park, is outstanding! They offer great selection, service, and are very helpful.

                                        This is my first Cannondale and I am enjoying
                                        the bicycle.

                                        this bike has a smooth comfortable ride and great value.

                                        I would have paid extra for an option for carbon fiber bars and stem.

                                        My LBS - Bike America was great to work with.

                                          I have approximately 1500 miles on my Cannondale Supersix 3. I do alot of 20 to 40 mile rides and no matter the distance or terrain, I feel great when I get off this bike. One of the most impressive things about this bike is how explosive it is going up hills. I used to dread going up hill but now I welcome hills of any size.

                                            Just moving from hybrid to road...wanted something respectable, fun and not too radical change. Found it! It is light, quick and even I can handle it with ease. I absolutely love this bike. I was disappointed when my dealer told me that I would have to wait weeks for the back order of the magnesium white and green to catch up yo me. So, instead of waiting I opted for the flat black and fine silver which was immediately available. Though I was bored to death with my black Trek Livestrong FX, from the moment I saw the black Super Six 3, I was hooked in this bike the color is just right! No regrets!!!

                                            I will have to put a couple of hundred miles on it soon... I am sure that I will feel the same.

                                              This SuperSix Ultegra replaced my R1000 Cannondale ( a very good bike, but the aluminum frame was too bumpy for me).
                                              From end of february until end of october I did almost 10.000 km and enjoyed every minute of it (and every kilometer).
                                              It is comfortable enough for a road bike, it climbs very well, and I enjoy the directness of it.
                                              I only regret that this early 2012 model doesn't have the option to switch to the electric shifting Ultegra set.
                                              But, who cares..,

                                                This super 6 replaces my 20+ year old CAAD 4 ultegra which I still love. This bike handles incredibly well. Craftmanship is amazing. Color scheme is perfect. Just a great all around bike. I'm looking forward to putting thousands of miles on this new bike and breaking her in!
                                                Amazing crisp handling, tight frame when really getting on the crank. This is my first carbon bike so we'll see how it compares to Cannondales amazing aluminum frames, but I'm loving it at the moment! Seems good for short rides as well as centuries. Saddle is relatively comfortable for not being broken in and bike shifts and works well for a new bike! I'll probably change out the tires soon, but other than that, amazing bike!
