I'm about your height 198cm and I got the Jekyll as seen above. It's natively a 26" wheel bike, but can and does fit 27.5" (which I'm, using) I went for some demos on some 29ers and felt too perched atop the bike for comfort. Just felt too tall an cumbersome. The 26" bikes I tried felt too small, like I was bunched up or something, especially after the feeling of a road bike. The 27.5" feels perfect on an XL frame (20") I feel within the bike, if that makes sense. Also if I want a bit more aggression and flick-ability in the bike I can just swap for some 26" wheels.

Got some cheap Chinese clinchers for the SuperSix to train on...

Look better than I was expecting but time will tell a tale, beats training on my 404 tubbies ;)

Here's my new to me Six13. Dura ace 7800 groupset, Ksyrium SL wheels, Kforce bar and stem, and the beautiful carbon/alloy frame. I am absolutely in love with the bike and I have only had it a couple of months.

I am looking into a compact crankset, just not sure on what to go for!

Nice bikes mate!



Recently reached 4,500Km on my Berzerker Green beast and have been loving every minute of it! I changed from 23mm to 25mm Conti GP4000s and they feel fairly good. I managed 3,800km on the 23mm tyres, so not a bad run - and not one puncture!

I also put some 'dale C-cages on last week - they do the job well.

those 25's remind me of circuit racing tyres. f-a-t. they must be comfier than the 23's by quite a margin.

The GP4000s is the biggest 25 I've ever seen.

Actually, those are the old 23s - I mixed the photos up...d'oh! I do put 120psi in them, as I'm a larger-sized lad!

I've put about 200Km on the 25s now and they are nicer - not stupidly smoother, but noticeably so.

Not as bling as Paul G's version above, but it will do me. :)

I'm really enjoying riding it. Still working out handlebar position. Was a little too tilted back last weekend, but I've gone too far the other way here. Eventually I'll change bars for something more like the bar shape on macca33's.

Very comfortable ride, no lower back discomfort after over 3 hours in the saddle last Sunday.

The fix to the cosmetic corrosion didn't work as well as planned. I'll sling it to one of the local bike shops that is good with that kind of thing in a few weeks to tidy up.

Trailgumby - nice bike mate, looks the goods. My bars are Cannondale branded C2 compacts; I 'spose any compact road bars would do the same thing. They feel fairly good under the hands and my large paws fit nicely in the drops.

Just realised my earlier post went a bit nanas with moving images around, etc.

2003 R2000 CAAD7.

10s Centaur QS group, with exception of Chorus carbon crankset. Mavic Cosmos to lightweight taiwanese hubs 24/28h. Concor Light. Deda bars/stem. 8.3kg as shown. Not hugely light, but about 1.5kg lighter than my steelies. Fun, in any case ;)

I realize you've probably already received 10,000 opinions but those shifters look like they could be moved forward a few mm, might be the camera angle but that bar shape is designed to have the top of the shifters parallel with the flat part of the bars

Btw the cannondale compact bars (which I have and like) are a short reach bar so they may well change your seating/reach position, just a thought that's all

Thanks for the advice guys. The bars and shifters came already set up mounted and taped and I haven't changed them, thought I'd try as-is first. The reach with the 90mm stem pictured is about perfect for me comfort-wise, although I am getting some wrist discomfort because the hoods are tilted up too far with the bar tops parallel to the ground. I'll fiddle with rolling the hoods further around on the weekend to try to get them parallel as suggested.

If I can get some of those compact bars with a 100mm reach that would be ideal and would save buying a new stem. But I've spent a few $k on bikes the last few months, so that will have to wait for a bit longer.

Thanks. Early days but very happy with it. The handling is what has surprised me after coming off a basic alloy Scott Speedster. The Supersix just feels planted or glued to the road. The wheels feel nice and responsive too after the anchors on my last bike. Not sure how long the Mavic tyres will last but like them too.
I did struggle for the first week with the standard crank after using a compact previously. But getting used to it and getting stronger too. The 28 on the back helps too.
Only thing I'm not real happy with is the Jet Black bottle cages. Nothing wrong with them but I think I'll try and get some Cannondale ones.

The Cannondale ones are the nicest I've used thus far and they hold the bottle very tightly.
