Strengths:    Awesomely versatile bike, nimble to ride, plush on big gaps, can be ridden all day or brutalised down punishing slopes with equal prowess

Weaknesses:    Bit heavier than newer frames

Bottom Line:   
Sensationally good and versatile bike, tough enough to handle massive gaps and gnarly trails but perfectly rideable for day long trail rides. Have flat landed after overshooting 11metre gap and ridden away, comfortably done two day cross country camp out rides and had minimal trouble with breakdowns or component failure so far. Bit heavy, but I Love it.

Date Reviewed: March 16, 2007

Strengths:    Very nice entry level DH/FR platform.
Relatively cheap.
Thousands of upgrades can be performed on this bike when the owner outgows the current components (Shock-Fork).


Weaknesses:    This is a Heavy bike.
The components (Fox Vanilla-R , Marzocchi Drop Off fork) have no serious tunability.


Bottom Line:   
Very nice bike for extreme situations the components could be better but keep in mind that this is Cannondale's entry level DH/FR bike.

I am looking at a Specialized Crave and a Crave Comp and I did not know how much of an upgrade the Shimano brakes would be over the Tektro. I could ride the Crave with the Tektro brakes and I was expecting more stopping power out of hydraulic brakes (coming from manual disc brakes). Could anyone t ... Read More »
