    I've just passed the 1,000-mile mark on my Team Liquigas Colors Supersix 5 105 and it just keeps getting better and better!! I ride about 125 to 150 miles per week and I love the fact that I can spend so much time on the saddle and be continually amazed at the Supersix's responsiveness, stiffness and durability.

    This bike will continue to surprise me for years to come. :-D

    I purchased this bike for crit racing, long rides and road racing.
    I am happy with the feel and the crisp handling of the bike.
    I am very disappointed with the 105 components. I have had shifting issue from my first ride to so far my 5th ride. I have ridden about 175 miles and after 5 rides and no rain my front derailer has locked up and will not shift. This is the second 105 derailer that I have had lock up on me, and that was on a different road bike. I am hoping the bike store will rememdy this issue since it is within 30 days.

          I bought this bike back in April '13, to replace my aging Klein Quantum Pro. Being a bigger rider (6'1", 215lb), the absolute first thing I noticed, was the complete lack of flex in the bottom bracket when I got out of the saddle... ALL the power goes straight to the rear wheel. Secondly, that same power transfer was very obvious the first time I started climbing. This bike has been everything I'd hoped for... and much, much more.

                I am a weekend warrior. I ride mostly on the weekends but do manage to get in a few hours per week.

                I was looking for a bike in a 63cm and was directed to go the route of fitness hybrids. I've done lots of research and found out that Cannondale makes a 63cm in every road bike that they sell so I had no choice but to just find the bike that called me.

                I was torn between the Caad 10 and the Supersix and tried out both and the winner was the the Supersix 5. This bike is so smooth riding, quick, steady, nimble, light (not the lightest due to it being a 63cm) and very fun to ride. It also makes hill climbing easier and fun.

                If I had known about this bike earlier, I could've save a few thousand by not spending so much on and upgrading all my previous hybrids. If you're looking for a great entry level road bike, Supersix 5 is the way to go.

                            Gosh I love this bike. Prior, I had a Quick 4 and i thought this was going to be tough for me to get used to. The LBS did a "body geometry" fitting. I cannot believe how well this bike fits me. I felt like i've been riding it for months, from week one. I can't believe how quiet and smooth it rides. Shifts so fast and easy. I did upgrade the seat to one that is open in the center...no more soft tissue pressure. I also had gel put under the bar tape. It's the little changes that make it worth spending the money on, since we are spending enough for the bike it self. I don't need any reasons not to ride. I just can't say enough about this rocket. Oh, I bought the team colors design and I am always getting compliments...just beautiful.

                                  The geometry is perfect for aggressive riding, albeit stock rims are a bit heavy and picking up speed could be a struggle on peloton pace. The rest of the components work great. The power transfer is efficient especially when standing to ride uphill.
                                  Stability during downhill and cornering works great too. Only that the frame has all external wirings so transporting the bike on racks may cause some stress when clamped
                                  Lugano tires not so durable after some tough and long century rides.

                                        I've put on 200 miles in 3 weeks and get still love it like it was the first day. Great on climbs and absorbs small bumps well. Energy transfer is top notch and more comfortable than I suspected.
                                        I wonder though, why it was not equipped with 105 brakes? The Tektro brakes work well enough but 105 across the board would be nice.
                                        Wheels could be a bit lighter (I would have paid a little more) equipped with better tires would make this a 5 star.

                                        I regret nothing as it delivered what I needed at a great bargain!

                                          Bike shop fitted me for it so that's a must for anyone. Bike is light and handles like a dream. The saddle was a bit on the harder side for me so I upgraded that plus I put my ROL wheels on the new bike. 105 group does the job just fine. Had Ultegra on my other bike, but was at least 4 years old. Can't say enough good things about my SuperSix. Just want to ride it some more.

                                            I love my super 6, PERIOD.

                                            I have to preface this with the fact that my local bike shop in Newark (DE) fit me for the bike. WOW!!!!!! What a difference. If you are not fit for your new bike the shop you are dealing with stinks, trust me, one of the guys from the shop saying " Oh yeah, that bike fits you" does not work. Take the time, spend a bit more, in the end ( your tail and wallet) you'll be a happier biker. Not to mention you will continue to ride.

                                            Back to the bike. I upgraded to EA 70's and it became a true rocket ship, before it was just FAST. And the ride is smooth, carbon cuts out the road chatter and one can sail along in quiet splendor.

                                            Poor little Super 6, it made me drool over the EVO but, after seeing the EVO I'm glad I purchased the 6- 105.

                                            It's a great bike, decent equipment.

                                              Great carbon bike! It has 105 components so there us room to upgrade but it works very well. The seatpost is carbon covered alloy. Get a new set of wheels and this thing can compete with much more expensive bikes.

                                                Bought this bike two months back to replace my alu-frame roadbike, I am very very happy with my purchase, the frame is amazing. This bike does everything exceptionally well, beasts climbs, glides over the flats and descends like a bobsleigh. The frame absorbs road stress like a sponge and with the BB30 bracket it has amazing power transfer....only downside is the Shimano RS10 wheels that come as standard, not a bad wheel but definately worth upgrading.

                                                  I've had this bike for a year now and can't say enough about it. The power transfer is astounding! This is a very fast bike. Everything you put into the pedals gets transferred to the road. I live in a very hilly area so that is very important to me. This bike will climb anything you throw at it beautifully. I can ride all day and still want to get back on for more. The frame absorbs road vibration wonderfully especially on "unimproved" country roads.

                                                  Used primarily on longer group rides.

                                                  The bike handles and climbs really well and was a great deal for the money.

                                                  However, beware that this is a racing geometry (Synapse might be better for long rides). With the SuperSix you get terrific response but it can be "twitchy" which can get tiring on long rides. I found that once I slammed the stem all the way down, handling smoothed out considerably.

                                                  I average around 130 miles a week. so far over 1500 miles on bike. Absolutely Amazing. Ride quality is stunning, just finished a 70 miler, very hilly, bike is a super climber and rock solid on desecents. my max speed hit 42.5 mph. never so much as a blink or twitch. when you pedal it goes yet soaks up the roughest roads.

                                                    I've just passed the 1,000-mile mark on my Team Liquigas Colors Supersix 5 105 and it just keeps getting better and better!! I ride about 125 to 150 miles per week and I love the fact that I can spend so much time on the saddle and be continually amazed at the Supersix's responsiveness, stiffness and durability.

                                                    This bike will continue to surprise me for years to come. :-D

                                                      I have put about 1000 miles on my supersix so far, and I am in love with this machine. It is joy to go out and ride, and I find myself spending time with the bike even when I am not riding it.

                                                      I have started commuting to work on my supersix just to be able to ride it more often. The ride is more comfortable than my car. The carbon frame takes out the harshness of even the nastiest of roads.

                                                      When I stand up and push hard up a hill I am suprised every time with the responsiveness and ease at which the bike climbs. Every bit of energy put into the pedals seem to translate to power put to the ground.

                                                      This bike has made me a better rider, and has shaved minutes off my best times.

                                                        I've had this bike for a year and a half and still every time I come back from a ride I tell my wife how much I love it. Every once in a while I take out my steel Biachi, which is fun, but there is absolutely no comparison. This bike is nimble and responsive, making it a joy to climb hills, stable on descents, and quick on acceleration. And after getting off the bike follow a 50 miler you feel like getting right back on for another. This is a fine bike.
