All my mountain biker buddies say I have gone over to the dark side of cycling with purchase of this bike. I think I was already there with all the riding that I did last year on the Cannondale XS800 but I think this bike makes it official! I have gone roadie!
This will be my third Cannondale but as I really start this new chapter in my cycling history, this bike is my first real road ride since I bought that Univega 10 speed when I was in High School. I have always loved Cannondale Bikes and I am so pleased with this purchase.
When I first saw it at The Bicycle Center I was shocked at how good it looked and by that I mean the blue accents on color scheme are really eye catchy! I never thought it would look this good but in my head I was thinking when ordering it that anything but black will be great.
It's not SRAM and it's not carbon, both of which are way out of my price range and I am not the slightest bit disappointed because it still has a great components.
Well, it some carbon on it by way of the fork
I love the internal cable routing and the white bar tape
Even my Garmin Edge matches the color scheme
