Closest I've yet to come was a Fuji. Aluminum frame with carbon fiber fork and stays. And I don't seem to have any pictures of it.

John, it's a titanium Record post, I think from the late 90s? The tubing is amazingly thin and it's pretty long as seatposts go, too.

My collection of rare-ish 26.0mm carbon drop bars:

Easton EC90 drop bar, 179g. Now on my Centurion Ironman



This beautiful Modolo Hi Module K, which unfortunately has a crushed clamp area:



And this 184g Kestrel bar which was on my Performance Focus (now sold)



That’s the extent of my carbon sacrilege!

Looks like the "after" photo in a Hambini/Raoul Luescher carbon fiber forensics/autopsy session.

A Postal Trek with 77 or 7800 would be pretty cool. Or a Mapei Colnago with alloy Record 10 Speed. Maybe some day.

Anybody have any experience with the Cannondale SuperSix Evo? This is a 2015 model that I'm looking at.
