Got my supersix 105 from leisure lakes. They price matched. It came with 105 brakes. Excellent bike, get one!

How much would it cost yo upgrade to 105 in the future?
Thanks in advance.


Yes Tektro are renowned for having no feeling and are basically inferior.

It really annoys me that they advertise things as a 105 (or whatever) and then put a mish-mash of components on them.
Yellow is the new Black.

Evening folks, I've read alot about the "claimed" weights of the supersix. Can anyone confirm the weight and related spec of theirs please? :D

Cheers

What a load of cowpat, if it really was a Cannondale you could have claimed it on their lifetime warranty, that they normally honour :)
