    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Looking at 2013 or 2014 Cannondale Supersix Evo 3 Ultegra

    Who owns one? What are your thoughts and opinions on this bike? Possible N+1 is keeping me awake at night.

    I have a 2011 non-Evo SuperSix, and it's incredible. These newer iterations are supposed to be even lighter and stiffer where it matters. Plus other changes, like internal routing, braze-on fd, thinner stays for the ever elusive compliance. And more I'm sure.

    I'm 6'2" and the 58cm frame provides a pretty substantial saddle to bar drop. Which I like, right now, but later on in life a bigger frame might be in works.

    IMO, the SuperSix line are aggressive, fast and very, very nimble bikes. Not built for rider comfort as the number one priority. If the ride includes quick responses to challenges, jumps in acceleration, long steep climbs at constant threshold HR then this is a fun bike. The easy going group ride or 6 hour+ century, not so much. Descending at speed is precise and exhilarating, but your input must be equally precise or else it quickly becomes scary.

    Only a CAAD 10 owner here, but if you can swing wither one do it, Ron. They are so sweet and that is a great level for their builds. Just keep what Bob said above about being stiff and aggressive in mind.
