Good to hear that "spoken" here. I ride a Kona and they have the slacker head angles. Most guys look at the spec sheet and say it's no good. I just rode it and loved it. Seems so much more stable to me than the 71 degree bike I had. The Dawg is even slacker at 68 degrees. The geometry of the Kona Kikapu (4" XC bike) is 69 degrees and guys love it too. Not trying to endorse Kona, just agreeing with the Cdale geometry. Good to see another manufacturer go this direction.antonio said:i'd search in the cannondale forum. they already have a few owner pics up, and they've been discussing the bike for a while. the bike has a head angle of 69 degrees, compared to 71 for most 4 inch fs bikes. after owning two bikes with 71 degree HA's and now owning two with 69, I would highly recommend the slacker angles.
Took one for a spin yesterday, Superb finish, great components, pedals nicely, but the bike is long and low and IMO definitely a bike you should test ride before you buy. I didn't like the fit although I'm probably in the minority.brad8283 said:Anybody hear anything or have any experience with these bikes? Im in the market for a new FS bike and came across this bike.
