For wobbly cockpits , did you double check headset compression is OK?
Yesterday I lowered my bar and did headset compression, It seemed ok.
This morning on the road I felt the bike so soft on the front... Checked the play in the headset and it was loose.
No noise like regular loose headsets, but wobble...
Made compression work on the road side and it went back to normal, sharp handleling!

I managed to find probably the last Hi-Mod 2 build in the US and got it for 20% off. I’m guessing they’re getting ready for the new paint jobs. A few questions. What parts are supposed to be included with the full builds? I should get the aero cages and bottles as it’s a Hi-Mod. What about other stem spacer options? Do the full builds come with the top cap and such needed to run standard stems? I did order the Momo bar and curious what is supposed to come with this as well. Pink fillers and computer mount I’m hoping come with it. The shop I ordered it from is 2 hours away so I just want to make sure I get everything so I don’t have to make a second trip.

Plan is to swap out the cockpit for the Momo. Also have a DA crankset with my shorter crank lengths ready to go. And a Power Mirror saddle. Wheels I have my Craft 4045s. Hopefully puts me right around 7kg.

A complete Hi Mod 1 comes with the Momo bar and the circular top cap. You can run a standard stem with the circular top cap, but you also need the Cannondale Delta Preload Stem Spacer. A complete Hi Mod 2 comes with the Conceal stem and the conceal top cap. You cannot run a standard stem with the conceal top cap.

My Momo bar came with the correct fillers, spacer set, and computer mount. It did not come with the circular top cap. I had to purchase that separately. It is the Cannondale Conceal/Aftermarket Delta Expander Plug, K35051. However, I feel like others on here got the cirular top cap with their Momo bar purchase.

I'm in a WeightWeenie dilemma. I managed to find a local-ish shop that is offering the non Hi-Mod 4 spec (mech 105) in the gloss black and silver for $2300, so around 35% off. I'm guessing trying to offload stock with upcoming new paint jobs. I have a Di2 group and wheels so I could strip it down and build it back up with that. I also found a Hi-Mod 2 spec (Ultegra Di2, R-SL wheels) for 20% off, so around $6,600. So my question is, how much weight difference am I looking at and is that worth it? I remember reading it's around 120g difference. I didn't plan to keep the R-SL wheels anyways so I feel like that could play a factor. The WeightWeenie in me wants the lighter bike. But man I feel like that's a good deal on the lower spec. Especially if I don't want the higher spec wheels and mostly just want the frameset and Ultegra Di2. What would you guys do?

I wouldn't worry to much about the frame weight. I got my regular Supersix Deep Teal Ultegra Di2 non hi-mod in 54 at 7.05kg without to much trouble.

The only feedback I have is one of my buddies had an SSE4 and test rode the SSE4 HM and immediately bought it because he said they felt very different to ride. That may be more important than the weight difference, I'd personally always go for the higher end frames if you can swing the cost

TREK Fuel EX Gen 5 - overbuilt and overweight

If you tell me where to get the HM for $6600, I will take it and you can have the other one ;-).

Lol, you live around Philadelphia?

With tax, it came to just over $7000. So the Hi-Mod is 3x the price of the non Hi-Mod. Granted it has a much better finishing kit.


Also, looks like Cannondale will be selling the EF paint job soon.

Small world, you working with Bob and Suzanne? My LBS of choice had that same bike for $6600 as a team deal a few months back. Wouldn't be surprised if you knew said buddy who upgraded from the SSE to SSEHM (and also designed the kit for the shop I assume you're working with)

In NYC. No sales at LBS around here. People just buy whatever the most expensive bike in stock.
I could take the train and ride back...

I see a lot mentions of new upcoming paint jobs. Do we have any indication of what colorways are coming up?

I'd love non-HiMod version in gloss white, like the SL7 Comp in previous years.

I helped a friend strip & build the SSE 4 with a set-up similar to what you're looking at. I'd also tracked the weight difference on most frames we'd seen on this thread as ~120g.

For the money being saved though, we were able to buy that 120g more efficiently elsewhere.

If you're likely to go no-cost-spared WW build, where you'd come up against that 120g or if you're super-keen to get below 6.8kg and keep going, then maybe get the Hi-Mod. Otherwise, I'm guessing you'd be able to get low-7.# kg pretty easily with the non-Hi-mod, just as we did.

Mine is at 7kg with most of the 105 still on it.

I wanted a Dura-Ace bike, but not a top of the line frame. I got the Evo 4, rode it as purchased, and upgraded things over time. Depending on what wheels you use, that 120g is nothing. I used the money saved to purchase the latest Dura-Ace groupset, wheels, etc.

Also, you can save 250g by not riding with your iPhone.
