Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Cannondale Super Six EVO - The Unicorn

I've been looking around for a Cannondale Super Six Evo in my size. The SuperSix Evo 105Di2 hit Cannondale's website in August I believe. To date, I have yet to see one, online or otherwise, actually for sale.

In my area, Michigan, USA, SuperSix Evo's might as well be unicorns, as they do not exist. In has been a little while since I checked with my local dealers, but the last time I did, they were frustrated that there was zero availability to order them from Cannondale. In there words, "We're not sure why Cannondale isn't producing road bikes".

Has actually seen a new SSE in the wild lately, even if it is old inventory?

Probably Shimano shortage of 105 Di2. Looks like it's not so hard finding Ultegra Di2 version

None in stock in Western Michigan. At least not at the 3 Cannondale shops around here. None. Not 105 Di2, Ultegra Di2, or any other version either.

A bike shop in Leesburg, Va had a couple. Not sure the size. One was hanging in the ceiling so I didnít take a good look at it, the other one I think was bigger than a 51.

Appreciate it, but $10K is a little more than I care to spend on a bike.

I don't know how far this would be for you, but Kozy is a pretty large Cannondale dealer in Chicago and I'm seeing a bunch of SuperSix Evos that show up on their website. When I sort by "in stock" it shows SuperSix Evos with mechanical 105, mechanical Ultegra and Ultegra Di2. They show size 51 as available for all 3 builds.

The 105 Di2 groupset is probably the holdup here. By the way, the mechanical 11sp Ultegra build is the same price as the unicorn105 Di2 and also has upgraded carbon wheels. Just sayin...

I’ll check it out. I would have no issue going to Chicago. I have looked at Kozy’s website, but didn’t think those where in stock, but said “Call for Availability”., which to me means not in stock.

Thanks.
