Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Cannondale System Six

I know there have been plenty of photos circulating, but I thought I would drop these here for discussion. Cannondale's not-yet-official System Six at Long Beach for the start of Amgen. I love the classic lines of my Evo, but it's nice to see them doing something different.

That different you call it is to move the SS into genre of aero bikes.
Rider for the bike on the right is one very big dude.

That would be Taylor Phinney, and yeah I didn't realize how tall he was until I saw him in person.

Yeah, the poor guy wouldn't stop growing. It really threw a wet blanket on his bike racing career. 6'-5" and change is indeed "one big dude" for a pro racer.

I just broke my 2011 SuperSix (BB shell loose) and went back to my 2007 System 6 and had forgotten how much I love that bike. It feels faster to me then my SuperSix (non Hi-Mod). I just bought a new 2017 SuperSix Hi-Mod but do not have the bike yet. Will be interesting to see how/if 10 years and Hi-Mod make a difference. My butt-o-meter might not even be able to tell the difference though.

I rode the System Six, but didn't put a lot of miles on it. I do remember it being an amazing ride though. I have the 17 Evo HiMod and for me, it's the most amazing machine I have ever ridden. Wanted one for years and totally worth every penny.

Yeah, the poor guy wouldn't stop growing. It really threw a wet blanket on his bike racing career. 6'-5" and change is indeed "one big dude" for a pro racer.
That, and getting his leg shattered didn't help much either. He's funny as hell though, his posts on Twitter about convos in the peloton are classic. If you want a good laugh, watch his GCN interview on time trialing.... "Nope, no radio, no power meter....I'm a zen-ass dood."
