2008 Six13, sort of...

Road Cycling “It 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.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Check out the new 2008 Six13 frame set. I build it up with the parts from my damaged R1000. Pretty slick! The new Six13 went compact, they increased the diameter of the setpost, and she only has FOUR Cannondale decals . She rides like a dream.
I have to agree with Pcad, nicest bike I've ever ridden.





Sorry for the poor quality pictures. Lighting in here isn't that great.

Enjoy.

Dante

This is the exact model I am thinking of getting, except the wheelset is kysrium in yours. Mind telling us how much you paid for this?

It was just a frame replacement. I got a deal from the LBS and the Cannondale rep. Traded in the damaged frame and got this one for half price. $500.00 clams.

Very nice!! You did better than me on the cost; I guess the frame replacement program is cheaper than the frame exchange.

Love the red details!!
