yeah ride hard, don't hold back, and absolutely do not leave it in the driveway to collect dust (which doesn't seem like you will based on the first picture)

Here's the bike!

Here's the bike's pics! It's the VERY FIRST Cannondale in the family, don't need to say everyone is in awe with this bike! It made me want even more the Prophet! The bike is weighting mere 11,800g! The Team Rep colour is just beautiful! Haven't seen a Carbon yet, but man, I think that if the aluminum is already this stuning, the Carbon Rush must be incredibly amazing!

From the specs, only the tires have changed, from the Michelin Hard Terrain to the Michelin X-Trem 2.0". Way better grip on most overall conditions, and not only flats like the HTs.

That is one of my favorite color schemes for the Rush...the black powdercoat has to be seen to be appreciated in full. You'll definitely love the raw area of the downtube, because that part gets pounded with mud and small stones.

Great tires too. I have an X'trem 2.2 which I throw on the front for heavy riding. Its pretty super heavy, probably close to 1000gm judging in comparison to my other tires. The 2.0's must be considerably lighter. In any case, they grip like an animal.

The black isn't just black, when you come close or see it in the sun, there are shiny pigments, that actually make the color sparkle! The raw finish is so well done that you can only wonder how they do it. From the perfect tube shaping to the seamless welds, it's a work of art you could only find in a Cannondale. It's amazing what these guys do, knowing this is not a custom-made bike, but a production model! It's a whole new world when you have a Cannondale. Now I can never come back from where I came. But hey, that's the good thing about it.

The Michelin X-Trem are just that great. The weight is 595g each, but they are not tubeless. Probably the ones you are using are not only wider, but maybe also tubeless-ready, so it adds some weight. But total weight with tubes is 730g, 'cause my brother is using some light Michelin tubes.

Yeah I know all about the black. I have the '07 Rush 4 in black with orange highlights. Sometimes I just sit there and stare at it until the bike gets uncomfortable. I'll get some pics of the bike up once I get a hold of a digital camera worthy of a Cannondale. :p

That must have been a Rush 4 at some point. I have the black and orange one and I'm tryna set it up like that eventually. You just need a carbon bar up on the front and you'll be set.

Here are some pics of my new Rush 4 - 2007. This was the second time using it.
Took it out to a trail in the north-east part of Puerto Rico that has very steep hills with loose rocks and dirt in most areas later compensated by the same type of terrain in downhills, tall drops and closed curves. The bike felt awesome!





Got some doubts about the air pressure in the ft. and rear shock. I weigh 170 pounds... any help?

Nice bike! What's the shock on this one? where's the knobs for rebound/ propedal?
Thanks. It's got no rebound or propedal. It's a as is out the factory float. Less to break. Less weight. Less money. It wasn't my choice but it works really well with little bob. It's nice to have a fully active air shock for a change. This single pivot is fairly bob free.

The BB measures at 13 inches with the 2.3 spiders. Hope to avoid too much pedal strike.
