A thread for the 2015 line…

I'm starting it with the 27.5" Trigger that's being launched as we speak. The SuperMax is 140mm and the rear is DYAD RT2 140/90mm. They're also officially introducing the 27.5" Jekyll today…

14.3" bb height on the new Jekyll?! The geometry seems quite conservative in contrast to the trend of long top tubes and lower BBs. I guess when you have a guy winning the EWS on your bike, you don't want to mess with things too much.

The builds look good. The value appears to be at the 3 models. Also, I was curious to see if Cannondale would be able to continue to spec a 1.5 steerer on non-lefty forks. It looks like the Pikes are tapered.

nice looking.............

If I bust my RZ140 frame, it's going to cost me some cash to get 650b rims strapped onto my hubs I have now.

650B? :yawn:

29ers with an eating disorder, how quaint.

Gee, let's follow a useless trend because someone said it was cool so many times the marketing guys started believing it.

Now, if they get off their duffs and stop wasting valuable resources chasing the next "big thing" so as not to be the last one to the party, they'd realize it's already staring them in the face as they blindly ignore it.

Build a damn FatLefty already, and beat all the other slackers to the punch.

Oh, a MUSA line of frames, including a fatbike would be a big way to signal that they are actually paying attention to trends that matter too....

I'd be interested to see if one could get upgraded dampers for "old" Supermax and Dyad.

Prices are ridiculously high, especially considering what money can buy today if you buy directy.
For less than what alloy Jekyll 3 costs, one can get something like this. :rolleyes:

I mean, SLX/X7/low end wheels on a bike that costs almost €5000... not happy :nono:

Fat bikes with suspension… :bluefrown: Isn't it like strapping a couch over the seat of a 1985 Lincoln Town Car?

Edit, added:

Personally, I never 'followed the useless 29er trend' like you say… and I was quite amused to watch some of the women at the Fontana US Cup having trouble to ride confortably on their bikes with too big wheels and too tall front ends for them. If it was me, I wouldn't make 29er bikes in small or medium… Maybe make smalls 26", medium 27.5" and large and x-large 29"… :D 29er make sense to tall people but when a 5'2" wants a 29er because the industry and it's marketing told him so… :rolleyes:

As far as as Made in US… Well, let's not go there, again! ;)

They said the same thing when the "first" fat tires came out.

You know, 26x1.75?

All those hard bodies back in the late 80's were saying the same thing. I love my rigid, why would I want suspension?

Now we've got more squish than a chubby chaser convention.

Strap on some squish to a fatty, and you'll realize what was missing all along!

I take it you aren't fat yet? :p

I try not to become fat… and the last mountain bike I got was in 2008, it's got retro 26" wheels! My 29ers are 100% rigid and skinny tired as they're road and CX bikes! :D
