    CAAD7 vs SystemSix comparo

    Just swapped off my CAAD7 frame for a SystemSix........wow; i honestly didn't think the ride would be that different. Feels 100% different.........in a way i 100% like! Not that the CAAD7 is bad....but this SystemSix steers quicker and just feels like it soaks up the road better.

    Good trade up system six is considered one of the best frame Cannondale ever made.

    Love the SystemSix. I was at a shop last summer looking for a CAAD9-4 and there was a NOS System sitting in the corner in my size. After testing the two back to back there was no question, the extra $700 was totally justified (price was dropped from $3500 to $2500 without any asking, haggling, etc. on my part!). The bike is like a Porsche - great feel for the road, direct steering, but still comfortable enough for long hauls. Enjoy your new bike!

    My only complaint has been in dealing with a hard side/cross wind. That massive headtube and bladed fork really catch the breeze and pull on the bike. Otherwise im loving it!

    I couldn't tell that my bike swayed more in the wind when I switched from my 1/18 six13 to my System. Lol...maybe it was just windier than normal that day.

    Then it must be intolerable to ride an aero frame bike like a Venge or an S3.
