    2010 Supersix Hi-Mod1 or 2011 Supersix Hi-Mod 1

    Hello all. New to the forum here. Currently own a 2008 System Six Barlo frame and love the bike. I have an opportunity to get a 2010 SS Hi-Mod1(dura Ace) for $5,000 or a Matte Black 2011 Hi-Mod1 also Dura Ace for $5200. Do these sound like fair prices?

    Would appreciate some feedback.

    Thanks

    That's pretty high price. Get on a bike club and get a discount like I did. Love my new Super Six with Rival. It's a sound bike for the money.

    I'd get the 2011 Matte Black with SRAM Red. It's retails for like $4800 and it's a very nice bike. Dura Ace is nice stuff and the final choice is up to you. Good luck.

    Really? The 2011 Hi-MOD 1 lists for $6,900. That's roughly 25% under the sticker price.
    I agree that the Hi-MOD 2 (with Red) is a better value you though.

    Those prices are pretty decent. I was referring to the high retail prices. If he can get the 2011 for $5200 that with Dura Ace that's a steal.

    Thanks for the reply's. I am dealing with Roy's Sheepshead Bay Cyclery in Brooklyn. He has the frames and builds them to either the Cannondale specs or your individual specs. The prices are bothe equipped with Dura Ace 7900 as spec'd.

    Any negative to getting the matte black frame? I have a red black System Six and that was my reason for going for the red, black 2010 Super Six.

    Just not sure about the Matte frame although it is very nice. I think maybe it's the bling factor of the shiny paint scheme.

    Soliciting your opinions.

    Thanks

    Do you trust this guy? How can he build custom Cannondales and sell them for such low prices? Something doesn't add up here.

    As far as a matte black frame goes, it looks great and is easy to keep clean. I don't see any down side there.

    I actually went to the store and it is legit. They have a nice shop once inside. Typical Brooklyn storefront though. Doesn't look like much from the outside.

    Advantage of buying in person is if I don't have what I wanted the build to be, I walk away.

    Good question though.

    Thanks

    I would think that buying a complete bike from Cannondale is less expensive than buying the frames and components separately. Maybe that's what they do and just swap out the parts per customers' request. Still, those prices are pretty low.

    I own the 2011 supersix hi-mod red in matte and i actually love it. Keep in mind i'm coming from a 2005 s-works e5 with dura-ace, which was stiff as heck and fast. The new supersix is every bit as fast and much smoother. Took one ride to get familiar with the shifting. I also really like the raw carbon and white, maybe not for everybody but i wouldn't have it any other way myself.

    Surf, how do you like the Red compared to the Dura Ace? I have the DA 7800 grupo on the System Six and really like it. I tthink what it comes down to in the color scheme is the bling factor of a painted frame...all glossy and shiny. Like I said earlier, holding that frame in my hands, it surely looked nice.

    Thanks for your input. Much appreciated.

    Soileauj, I, like you, was riding DA 7800 and i really liked it - absolutely no complaints. I was ready for something new and most of my friends are running SRAM. I rode for one hour on Saturday and I think I have the double-tap down. It's very easy, super positive shifting, it almost snaps, especially falling down the cassette. I would say it's faster shifting and lighter so I couldn't be happier. For what it's worth, the bling factor for me was the raw carbon showing through with a little white. My friends think it's the best looking bike they've seen in person, most don't even ride though so not a fair judgement. I'll try and get up a pic in a few minutes.

    Thanks Surf and I'd appreciate seeing a picture. Question-the matte frame I saw looked to be painted in a matte finish.

    Is there a difference between the Hi-Mod D2 & Hi-Mod 2 Red frames? The D2 states Matte Carbon but nothing for the Red frame. Looking at Dannondale's site.????

    I think the frame scheme is the same for the Di-2 and Red but I read that they did something different with the cable routing grommets on the Di-2. Mine is definitely raw carbon with white, kind of hard to tell from the crappy iphone shot though. It's still very subtle, you can see the seam on the down tube, where the carbon comes in. Again, i love this about it but it's definitely not matte black paint.

    BTW - i got some free white cosmic decals for the rims to make it look just like the team bike's wheels. Do you think i should leave it as is or put the bigger white Cosmic decals on the rims?

    I think it would look good on your bike. The color combination esthecially would go well together. You may want to tyr one side of the front and back wheels and see what you think. BTW, thanks for your input.

    Nice setup!

    Are you referring to the 2011 decal set with the large 'cosmic' ? If so i think they would match the bike much better.

    I have a 2011 supersix 105 same exposed carbon and am planning on getting either a set of 2011 cosmic carbone sl's or 2010 sr's but will def use the 2011 decal.

    If you replace the stickers post a pic!

    Will do - stickers are on their way. Sign up for updates on bonktown.com. I got lucky and the cosmic carbone SLR's popped up for $1000. Came out to 1007 shipped...

    BTW - that 105 supersix is one heck of a value - looks great too. I'd be interested in seeing just how much lighter the red is than the 105. My bike weighs in at 15.6lbs with dura-ace pedals and two carbon cages. The SLR's are really trick but not the lightest wheel out there by a long shot. I think they are 1595grams.

    I built this in September and love it. Was riding Quintana Roo tri bikes and the change over to a road bike is quite noticeable. Just seem to have a little more space. Enjoying the chnage over. Committed to the Matte Black 2010 Ultimate frameset with Dura Ace components.

    I'm waiting for my new wheel decals before I take better photos but I'll be sure to post them up. I think there just aren't many 2011's out there, other than my photo, I can't find any photos of the raw carbon/white other than the brochure...

    Glad you posted your pic. I dont think the website does the 2011 SS justice with the white background. I actually was going to order a 2011 in matt black but found a 2010 instead because of the extra white stripes. But after seeing yours I think the extra stripes look good.
    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with itů Pee on it and walk away

    Do I look like I'm ready for homework?

    Absolutely, it isn't going anywhere. And I just realized a typo, it's a 2007 not 08. Came in at 15.7 lbs. without the bottle cages and computer.
