Strengths:    Beautiful Design, functional frame (SS or geared), inexpensive, top-notch customer support...

Weaknesses:    ???

Bottom Line:   
For a 40yr old, I feel I ride fairly aggressively (tackle Rocks, Logs etc...and I have competed in various races (mostly endurance type) with this bike and the frame has been fantastic. It is extremely comfortable (17" Frame...I am just shy of 5'8" w/29-30" inseam) and I have had no problems going from a FS to a hardtail SS. I was looking for an inexpensive build and someone pointed me in the direction of Soul Cycles. I built this bike as a training tool to make me a stronger rider on my FS geared; now I ride my Hooligan almost exclusively. LOVE IT!

Strengths:    Awesome frame, very light and stiff. Comes with all dropouts to set up as single-speed and/or V brakes. The paint and finish is excellent. This bike really should be about 3x the price. But don't tell them that.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
This is an outstanding frame. I was wary about being the first I knew to have one, but the frame kicks butt. The bike really handles like a race bike with quick reflexes yet very stable. With the Magura fork, can do long rides without allot of fatigue. I highly recommend.

Cannondale Hooligan - year models, changes, features etc

Hi everyone! Been looking at pictures of Hooligans, and am aware there are various changes for model years and dependent on location. I figured it would make sense to put up a thread as a reference for everyone in the future. Would be great if current/past owners of Hooligans can chime in so tha ... Read More »

Saving money, hooligan style.

I started seriously trying to do proper wheelies last summer. I could never hold them up longer than about 20 feet or so... and I was horribly out of control, chasing the front wheel, and panic braking. Took me about 2 months riding to and from work practicing my wheelies to get this good. ... Read More »

Cannondale Hooligan: anyone made it work for children?

As title suggests- has anyone made it with with a shorter stem and a riser to make it rideable for an 8 year old? In case anyone asks, daughter deserves a new bike and dad is wondering if he can somehow make it work for him too. :-) Thanks.Read More »
