Strengths:    The Frame, Looks, Style and Lefty Elo

Weaknesses:    This is a Cannondale not somebody's Taiwan brand weekend bike - only thing that's a prob is the stem "it works, but looks like xxx!

Bottom Line:   
This is the bike, it's fast as hell, a bit stiff "normal for cannondale" It's Riser is cool, could have gone for at Olympia with Sid and XTR/XT but there is something about C-dale thats a bit magic, it has that little bit extra.

Strengths:    Very good in the technical stuff, Coda discs are excellent stoppers. I didn't know how much of a difference the hyd. discs would make over V's, but the stopping/slowing power, especially in the soft and steep stuff, is amazing. Wicked paint job (black flames, red and orange)! Love the look and feel of the Lefty, and the Electronic Lock-Out is awesome.

Weaknesses:    Should have XT frond der. and shifters at this price. Riser bar looks agressive, but has too much rise for my liking. Seatpost was too short (350 mm on the large), so i had to get a 400 mm sp which should have been speced on a bike this big because at the min insertion line my knee was still too bent.

Bottom Line:   
A sweet bike! Looks like nothing else out there, and rides like a dream. Was definately worth the money, even though I could have gotten a Desparado or other nice bikes. Cannondale makes a great product that can't be beat when it comes to XC riding and racing or even DS (which I might even try). If you have the cash and are looking for an all purpose bike (4 inches of travel, hardtail, electronic lock-out) go for it. A near perfect bike (that can easily be made perfect).
