Ryder Hesjedal and his eight Cannondale-Garmin teammates each got brand new Cannondale SuperSix EVOs at the start of the 2015 Tour de France. As is the trend with road race bikes, the SuperSix EVO debuted with claims of increased torsional stiffness and lateral deflection. But the SuperSix EVO has a notable physical change to back up the lateral deflection (read: comfortable flex) in the adoption of the slender 25.4mm seatpost that the Cannondale Synapse used last year.
Standing at 187cm / 6ft 2in, Hesjedal chooses to ride a 56cm frame so he can achieve his desired 17cm drop without a crazily-angled stem (like he uses on his Synapse).
