Cannondale Moto Freeride Full Suspension

5/5 (2 Reviews)


Product Description

Pick the adjective of choice for the Moto: Burly. Brawny. Beautiful. Bump-aliscious. For all-mountain riders on steeper terrain, the Moto shines. Revolutionary floating shock technology gobbles up baby-head sized rocks, and delivers premium suspension performance. Ultra-stiff bottom bracket shell resists torsional stress and the sloppy flex that takes away from the riding experience.

Available as the Moto 4 or Moto 5

Strengths:    Plush rear end, very very smooth. Came with U-Turn shocks. Handles well over every track, also rides well down a good techie downhill - 6 footers no probs here. Looks bloody good too!

Weaknesses:    The Yanks put the brake levers arse-about (front brake on the left??? do US motorbikes do this too???), when I swapped them over I had to get a longer front brake line. But nuffin else to sook about...

Bottom Line:   
For an all rounder don't look anywhere else. At 17.5kg it's only 800g more than my soft tail...

Date Reviewed: June 1, 2009

Strengths:    Amazing rear suspension. No bob. The linear 6" feels bigger. Fine geometry. Excellent cable routes.

Weaknesses:    A little rear flex, but not enough for to be an issue.
Incompatible with truvativ chain guide for two rings.
There are no miracles, then it is not an up hill machine, but you may stay over the bike all the time.



Bottom Line:   
Perfect for long trails with many DHs.
The rear suspension is amazing.
5 Flamin because this bike is really enjoyable in real trails.
