    08 System Six 1 actual pictures and weight

    I'm about to pull the trigger on an 08 system six 1 lightning white, but can't find any real world pics or weight.

    If you have them let's see them.

    Sorry no pics. But I have seen it in person & it is by far the best looking paint scheme of the 08 systemsix's. I have a 2008 SystemSix 4 in blue and it is hot, especially after putting my campy on it. I weighed the SystemSix with Rival and it weighed 17.5 pounds in 52 cm size, so the advertised weights on the cannondale website are pretty accurate.
    It says the System6 1 which you are interested in weighs 16.7 pounds, so that is about right.

    Which is Lightning White?

    Sorry for the thread jack, but which paint scheme is Lightning White? There's an all white one for the Ultimate and the black-white one, but both are called Lightning White. I'm about to put an order in for a SuperSIx 2 and would like to get the all white frame if it's an option. I know the website says the SS 2 only comes in Clear Coat and Race Red, but the OP seemed to be able to order a Lightning White for the SS 1, which is also not an option on the website. Anyone know what paint schemes are really available and if I can get the all white one for a SS 2?
    Lyin' on the floor, I've come udone.

    Yea I won't forget this one (and she won't let me).
    She has two unmarried sisters. I'll put in a word for ya stwok!

    Wheezer, the OP is asking for a SystemSix 1 in lightning white (see the picture above). I think you are talking about the SuperSix. For 2008, The SuperSix Ultimate comes in Lightning White (all white) and Black (w/white lettering), this color is called "clear coat".

    Wow! What a Christmas present and what a bike. I am getting the exact same bike in 62cm and my team colors and I simply can not wait. I have heard great things about the frame and I am currently on a six 13 and it rides really well, I hear the system six is even better. My only bummer was the wheels?!? What's up with Cannondale putting limp wheels on a 3k bike with Dura Ace? It's so not Cannondale as they always spec'd their bikes great. Also, I would like to see Cannondale put a bit more in the System Six and less than the Super Six. We need to remember that all the big victories of Liquid Gas (Giro, Leige) were on the System Six and the Barloworld climber jersey was on the System Six as the Super Six was only available in July in one size.

    Great bike, let us know your thoughts.
