A few days ago I walked into a bike shop to discuss some new parts when the shop owner came over to me and said I have your new bike. He said it is not actually new, but very close and can be bought right. I was interested.
The bike is a Cannondale Super Six with full Dura Ace and Ksyrum ES wheels. I said the price of that bike is out of my league. He said he just got it on consignment and the owner wants it sold. I made a cash offer and the man eventually took it.
Now I understand what a good bike should be. I have never owned a full Dura Ace bike. The frame is a 60 CM, which is considered XL. With the pedals, water bottle holders, seat and seat bag all on the bike it weighted 17.01 pounds.
I know a lot of the riders on this forum own this quality bike, but I never have. There is a difference. After just two rides I really understand why Dura Ace is considered a very top line product. The Super Six is wonderful. Also, once I am allowed back in the house so I can get a good night of sleep again, all will be good. I thought the wife might be a little upset about spending money like this, but MERCY>
