My new ride!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So my bike was stolen last week. I wanted a new one:



I weighed my options, test rode 4 or 5 bikes, and decided that this was my best bet for now. A 2008 Cannondale Six13 6. I am happy. Will ride tomorrow and report back, but for now

Who you kiddin?
You wanted a new one before you knew your other bike was stolen. It just gave you the green light to be impulsive!

Good buy, Kyle. You're Awesome!

We hung it from the scale the night before I bought it and it was 20.2 pounds. That was with the goofy reflectors and platform pedals.

I have since removed the reflectors and added Look Keo pedals.


Stepping up to the Six13 5 (same frame construction, but a 54cm opposed to my 56cm) weighed in at 18.6 lbs. That bike had a much more expensive wheel set though.

Good choice. That bike will serve you well. Also - add another bottle cage.

Oh yeah - keep this one inside your apartment.

Yep. Aluminum el cheepo cage was $7.50, and the sweet Specialized carbon fiber one I bought was $13, but they only had 1 in stock. The are getting me another plus a new mount for my cage pump (old one is still attatched to a bike somewhere-

It matches my red couch perfectly, and the girlfriend loves how it ties the room together

He won't know for awhile. It still has to break him in.

I got in at least 15 miles yesterday and had no issues with it. Had I had more time I would have kept going.

Damn. We're a Cannondale dealer and we have a big bin of those saddles sitting around because everyone swaps them out. A couple guys at work even tried to ride them for a while, but couldn't stand them. Maybe us Canadians have funny shaped butts.

Who knows. I go back in for a proper fitting (seat angle, handle bar tweak etc.) and maybe I'll try a different seat and fall in love.


The best part about this bike was when I first rode it. Well, actually I rode the Six13 3 ($2000- and just loved the way the frame felt. I instantly knew I was on what I needed.
