Stephen Hyde’s Cannondale SuperX Cyclocross Pro Bike

Stephen Hyde’s Cannondale SuperX Cyclocross Pro Bike


– I got a very special
bike with me here today. It’s Stephen Hyde’s National Champ Edition Cannondale Super X. Stephen rides for the Cannondale
CycloCrossworld.com team and this bike, as all the
bikes in their quiver, is absolutely mint. (logo thumping) (upbeat music) The bike paint job is immaculate,
but it’s not just that. It’s all of the artwork on this bike that makes it really unique. There’s a beautiful picture down here, with an American flag,
and a warrior carrying it. There’s also Hyde’s name,
and his logo up on the top. And then down below, S-T-H
inside of a turntable, with each of the years of his
national champion victories, three of them. The frame set has a ton
of engineering in it. Cannondale has used a proprietary
design, a 25.4 seat post. And it also has a special
carbon fiber layup that gives the bike a lot of flexion. So when you’re riding off-road, you get a little bit
more comfort in there. It’s also got an
asymmetrical bottom bracket, which gives a much bigger tire clearance to allow these wheels to
be able to flow freely in the nasty, muddy conditions
that cross riders see. Starting out up front, Stephen is using Sram Red Axs shifters,
as well as rear derailleur. He’s got a Force 10-33 rear cassette. He’s running 170 cranks. And he’s using a 42 tooth chainring. Hyde opts for Shimano
XTR mountain bike pedals. The cockpit on Hyde’s
machine is from Zipp. It is the Service Course
SL stem, size is 120. And on the bars, he’s running
the SL 80, and the size is 42. (rhythmic music) – One of the cool bits on this bike is Cannondale-Cyclocrossworld.com’s
propietary chainwatcher. They don’t usually run one with
Sram 1x, it’s not necessary. However, in these nasty
conditions that they’re going to be seeing here a the National
Championships this weekend with tons of mud, sand,
grit, all that stuff, they decided, you know what,
better safe than sorry. So they came up with this 3D
printed custom chainwatcher. Tried and true Zipp 303 tubular wheels are on Hyde’s bike, matched up with
Vittoria Terreno Wet tires, size 33 using the Graphene
technology that Vittoria has talked about over the years. This uses Zipp Service
Course SL carbon seatpost, size 25.4, and then attached to it is the carbon fiber railed
Fabric Ultimate Scoop saddle, with the custom National
Champ stars and stripes on it. (rhythmic music) Stephen’s using Sram
Red brakes and calipers, and he’s using size 140
rotors, front and rear. Let’s get a weight on this machine. It’s coming in at 7.9 kilograms, which is about 16 pounds on the dot. We got to do a freehub sound check because I know you guys love it. (smooth spinning sound) Fast! (upbeat music)
