Product Details

2013 Cannondale Scalpel 29er 3

Dialed XC suspension combines with big wheels and 100mm of smooth, efficient travel to create an amazingly fast bike. Cannondale's aluminum Scalpel 29er 3 boasts a race-ready ride with minimal weight, while the awesome Lefty fork and Fox's rear shock offer smooth, controlled travel for a confident ride. The geometry is fast and maneuverable while being capbale and confident in technical sections. And, you roll fast with Sun rims wrapped with grippy Schwalbe tires that are light enough to race on and tough enough to go all day on the trails. Plus, with Avid's Elixir brakes and a great-shifting SRAM 20-speed drivetrain with BB30 cranks, this is one machine that covers a ton of trail in short order.

    Comments:

    I had an 06 Prophet that I thought I'd ride forever. Then I test rode a 29er and upgraded immediately, but with a different brand for cost reasons. After a few months and several upgrades, I realized there's more to a Mt bike than just good roll-over, so I gave in and bought this bike. It's light, fast, and goes where you point it. The only upgrade is tubeless via Stan's rim strip. It's like a road bike for the trails!

      The 29er Scapel is an excellent bike. The geometry and excellent components make for a complete XC bike. This bike has me clearing sections of trail with ease. I would recommend this bike to anyone looking for an AWESOME bike.

      Comments:

      Bought this bike as soon as I saw that the lefty had been redesigned, I havnt been let down. I have over 200 miles on this bike and love it, a great bike for the rooty/rocky New England trails, I ride it competitively and leisurely, it is a performer at a price that wont break the bank. Im a 205lb rider and it works great. Cons: red? wheres the cannondale green? and the white seat was not such a hot idea, three winter rides and its already brown. that seriously is all I have bad to say about the bike!!!
