    I had a Cannondale rental road bike stolen in France. The rental agency claims it was an Evo super six 105 full carbon. I do not believe that is correct because the top cross tube was very large and round like aluminum bikes I have ridden. Perhaps this had carbon forks but aluminum frame? If so can anyone suggest what model it might have been? Again the top tube was perfectly round and probably about 2" outside diameter or maybe a little less.

    Are carbon tubes large and round like that?

    Cannondales are rolling billboards. EVO and Super Six should have been on the frame somewhere---you can't miss it.

    If there was an 8 or 10, or the initials CAAD, it was an aluminum frame.

    I mean, you rented it. You had it for how many days? You should have seen the logos and remembered what they were.

    Trying to piece it together from what you've provided is difficult.

    It was buried in the middle of new kitchen ads. Or maybe fake passports. :D
