The Col Collective


Hi Mike, I am interested in the bike you ride during The Col Collective. Obviously it's a Cannondale but which one and what groupset are you using? Also what is your preferred choice of pedal and what sort of pump do you carry with you on your rides? Thanks, Peter

Hi Peter,

Thanks for getting in touch. I ride the Cannondale EVO HiMod with Shimano Di2 9070 groupset, Hollowgram SiSL2 crankset and Mavic Cosmic Carbone 40 clincher wheels. This was actually last years model, you can see the new 2015 range here. For pedals I use the Zxellium from Mavic this is the same as the Time Xpresso pedal (Mavic and Time have a partnership) What I really like about them is the engagement mechanism. Instead of having to force your foot into them the spring is always open and when you step on the pedal it engages (a bit like a ski binding) so it makes it really easy to clip in to. I’ve been using the Carbon Road Drive pump from Lezyne for the past year or so. Seems to have stood the test of time so far!

If you need anything else at all please do not hesitate in asking and I’ll do my best to help.

Stay well and ride safe.
