Cannondale F-Si 29er Hardtail

5/5 (1 Reviews)


Product Description

Super short chainstays (429mm, shortest chainstays for a 29er), short head tube (allows small and medium frames to keep the handlebar height reasonable), asymmetric offset rear triangle and drivetrain (that allows for a stiffer, low bottom bracket height (12.1?), evenly dished rear wheel and the option to run 2x drivetrain), 55mm offset on the new Lefty fork (which creates less trail than the average 29er and helps lessen the “slow and heavy” steering feel often attributed to running 29 inch wheels), Save 2 seat post (designed to provide a bit of comfort on this race ready hardtail) and an all new, sophisticated carbon layup for fine tuning the ride characteristics and stiffness at multiple frame points.

Strengths:    Some awesome things about this bike:
wicked fast climbing and great stability on the climbs
same applies to the descents as well
extremely lightweight
very comfortable and sturdy


Weaknesses:    no dropper post, could really use one, especially for the price

Bottom Line:   
I rode this bike for eight miles around a course, those eight miles were some of the best I've ever ridden. I've ridden expensive full suspension carbon bikes, I rode bikes similar to this like the Giant and Specialized carbon hardtails. NOTHING COMPARES, you will never feel this fast, I'll be buying this bike very soon. This bike is not awesome if comfort is 100% your thing. This is a hardtail, not a full suspension. My personal opinion is that bikes with tubeless tires probably don't need rear suspension. The bike has a 69.7 degree head angle to really handle descents really well, but that short chain stay for quick ascents. The whole bike is structured perfectly to be almost bullet proof.
