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.

Gemini DUO x 2

So I was thinking about getting two Gemini DUOs, one for the bars and one for the helmet...your thoughtsRead More »

Gemini Duo - you like the pattern or want more spot?

I have some optics that really tighten up the beam and make it into a medium spot. Definately way less than the stock optics but not silly spotty like a P60 or the classic "magicshine" light. Anyway, PM me and if there's enough people I'll make more (requires modification).Read More »

Flash frequency on Gemini Olympia/Duo?

Does anyone know the flash frequency for the Gemini Olympia and Duo headlights? I assume they are the same, and hopefully about 2 hz (for commuter duty). Thanks in advance.Read More »

DiNotte XML-3 vs Gemini Duo

I'm ready to pull the trigger on a new helmet light, it seems like for dependability and illumination it may come down to one of these two, with a 4 cell battery,their price is very comparable, the stryker on sale also looks interesting, but seems to lack the firepower of these other two.
