    Yes, it was the hi-mod, which was the only model at the time.
  3. Which Current Cannondale SuperSix is equivalent to the 2010 SuperSix?

    I had a 2010 SuperSix that was an amazing bike. Frankly, it was plenty of bike for me and can't justify the extra $$$ on a few grams. But...I don't know which current SuperSix model would be the...

    The fun of touring is the adventure and freedom of it. Part of that is not worrying about the bike. I'd:

    Thanks for the replies. Surprised no one has tried using Sram stuff with DT shifters.
  16. Sram derailleurs with which indexed (r) DOWNTUBE shifters?

    (First, please don't try and dissuade me from DT shifters, I like them, the end)

    I've read an article by Leonard Zinn that says Campy shifters are compatible with Sram derailleurs because they...

    Short answer: Yes, the traffic is pretty terrible. But you can do it. Blinky lights/lots of neon on the whole time is about all you can do aside from praying.
