LBS confirm that the frame is indeed cracked good and proper. I also found another crack in the brake bridge.

Details with Cannondale as of last night, 17 May 2012.

Been told there is a replacement 2012 model Supersix Ultegra frameset winging its way to Cardiff.

Frame swapped over to a 2012 Supersix Ultegra, more thanks to the LBS (Sunset in Cardiff), than Cannondale TBH.

C'dale were not the most helpful, trying to palm me off with 105 colour frames, not matching my OEM components ("what you want - blood?" - "No just a like for like swap!"). Sunset told them where to get off, so it's all sorted now.

Swift 50miler yesterday as a shakedown, and if anything the bike feels more buttery than the 2011 model. Fantastic piece of kit.

Cheeky barstewards! Good to hear your LBS saw you right and you're back enjoying the bike.

Mark.

You'll have to change your signature! Advise a luddite. Are these still aluminium? Looks nice.

The CAADs are aluminium, but no this is full Carbon, including the cranks. I shall do!

Very responsive and fast. Handling is incredible, and to top it all, she's comfy too! 100milers with no back pain!!!!
