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

Submitted by DeadDingosDonger a Weekend Warrior from Cairns

Date Reviewed: August 17, 2009

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.

Neo Moto tubeless question

Just picked up a Neo Moto and planning on setting up as tubeless. I have read some of the posts in this forum where riders had some problems with the moto as a tubeless tire. Anyone know if the tire has changed from the original to be more tubeless friendly, i.e. thicker sidewalls? My tire has no ... Read More »

With help from the original owner, who bought it when he graduated from high school, the original configuration has been restored. The crankset is original to the bike. This bike was raced in the vi ... Read More »

Neo-moto sized tire choices?

I started running 27.5 in 2007. Choices were limited for a number of years to the Neo-moto, Kendal Nevegal, WTB Wolverine & IRC Fire. Well now that there are plenty of choices I am still limited to a 2.3 Neo-moto on my 26er conversion. I would like a TR tire that is a fast roller, good for trail use ... Read More »
