    whoo hoo fixed my frame creaking issue...

    by getting a new one of these Got a REALLY good deal on this supersix 5

    Shop mech said to give it some time (a week or so) b4 I go in to have the steer tube cut. He said it would be easier to do it once then twice. Already removed the dome spacer and I have it slammed on 10mm spacer above the slim head cap and 120mm stem. Has a bit more seat post drop then the planetX but shorter tt as well. Compact vs traditional geometry

    Alright listen. You're supposed to take the pic against a white garage door, not a white car in your garage. Strike one.

    Where are the planet X tubulars? Strike two.

    One more strike and you have to hand the bike over to me, sorry. That's just the rules, I don't make 'em up.

    What do you mean compact geometry? That looks fairly classic compared to the sloped top tube frames most companies make these days. Very sharp looking bike btw!

    haha at least I took off the reflectors and put it in the big ring. By the end of the week I should have most of the parts moved over....it won't stay stock for too long

    my PX was compact geo vs this one. Initial test ride was a bit different feeling.

    Ah, ok. But aside from the sloping top tube were there any other differences (stack? Reach?)? I imagine you'll really enjoy that supersix, they're sweet bikes. Hopefully you'll post a comparison ride report when you get some miles on it.

    Dang. That thing is HAWT! I've really liked that color scheme from the first time I saw it. RS10 wheels. How painful that must be compared to what you are used to!

    Congrats!

    I think they missed a couple blank spots where they could have put another Cannondale or two. They really need to study Trek bikes for a how-to.

    LOL yah the RS10 and tektro brakes..... I do admit the RS10 with blue nips fit the color scheme well, then I took off the front and compaired it to my kinlin300 clincher wheel...um yah there is a bit of a difference there Gonna do a lunch ride in the hills today, see how it shakes out in stock form.

    Here's your strike 3 bit...

    The valve stems are not correctly positioned.
    My preference is to 'hide' them behind the frame.

    jsigone - Trojan will be by to pick the bike up later. Sorry but thems the rules.

    Why would he drive all the way up to Baldwin park to sell wheels?

    Yes, I see what you're saying. And yet I'd ride the dickens out of it if I owned one. Even look has some blank canvas though!

    nope not me! that was the first released spec sheet of this bike, they switched it up probably mid yr putting on the shimanos......and now the 2013 get the RS10's as well. You have to get ultegra grade super6 for those mavic wheels and also get FSA SL-R cranks (which I want). But for the price I got, i'm not complaining since its gonna get hot rodded a bit anyways.....I can't leave anything stock.

    got a 19mile lunch ride in, this bike is solid, everything pedaled is transferred to the ground. Yet it dampens the road a great deal over the PX. Steering is very responsive and firm. Can feel the bike lunging under me on the short power up climbs.

    I still need to work out the kinks of the fit, fingers got tingly about 17 miles in and hammy was pulling more w/ the setback seat post. Gonna rotate the hoods up a bit and use a 0 setback post.

    Oh and I got the honorary flat tire on maiden voyage...yah I miss my tubulars already

    I was unaware that tubulars never flatted? Do you have some of that stans sealant in them?

    yah I have stans in my tubulars via removable valve cores, same I use in on my 29er full suspension running tubless. I think today was the first time I got a flat this year HAHA. There are some small cuts on the tubulars, but I just fill them in with super glue.

    Hm... I was watching a stans video the other day and the test dude rolled over about 20 carpet tacks with very little loss of air. It's making me rethink tubulars. Hm.

    I'm just glad jsigone has a super nice bike now... it's less humiliating than when he motors past me on a nice steep hill in his TWENTY ONE COG! On his open mold frame! Now I have an excuse! Woo hoo!

    Good point. I bet he doesn't even have to pedal that thing up the hills. It probably does all the work for him!

    Well, I for one was not aware that it was the bike doing the pedaling.

    I retract my earlier statement.

    I thought the PX bike looked damn sharp too though, certainly nicer than that collection of tin bikes those old dudes were riding.

    Super6 swap has been completed. It received rival shifters, rival rear d, DA brakes, 3T cockpit, cut steer tube, color tape, weight Weenies cages and the px 50mm tubulars. Much much lighter! Need to make up my mind i get which bb30 cranks to get and for my kinlin 300 clinchers rebuild from the lbs.

    Break it in with a 60 miler tomorrow!
