  1. Cannondale is making road cycling more inviting and efficient than ever before with the launch of the reimagined Synapse road bike and new SmartSense technology. View full article
  2. Still trying my hand for my very first build project. Converting a 2010 Cannondale Trail F4 SL MTB to a “gravel bike”. Think its more like trying to get it the same as my Giant ATX 760 in the 90’s with a rigid fork. Anyway, I digressed. Need to get reducer cups or new headset to be able to fit new fork (1.5” to tapered or 1 1/8). Was thinking Cane Creek 40something Done the research: asking to confirm that I got the type right please? What type of headset is it? There are three types of headset, IS (Integrated System), EC (External Cup) and ZS (Zero Stack). Integrated headsets have the bearing cups pre-built into the head tube. You simply drop the bearings in and you're away (This isn't the Cannondale Trail SL). External cup headsets are pressed into the frame (commonly also known as press-fit headsets) and the bearings sit outside of the frame. Zero stack headsets are the half-way house. They are pressed into the frame and the bearing is generally within the frame too. From the images of my bike I would say Zero Stack. That right? Thanks!
  3. Hi everyone, not sure if this is the best place to post this but I came across someone trying to sell a bike today that I think was stolen. It is a very unique bike and seemed to be well-loved, hence my thoughts on why it is odd that the owner was trying to sell it. The bike is a red Cannondale R300, that has been converted to a one-by with a Shimano XT (I think M8000 Derailleur and cassette) drivetrain, and a cSixx front chainring that was inverted. It also had flat Easton bars on it. Very similar to the picture below, with a slimmer seat, black foam grips and the one-by drivetrain. Let me know if this is actually is a stolen bike.
  4. ROLA Motor Group are putting their money where their mouth is in a big way by supporting some of SA’s best athletes. In a sport where sponsorship is often hard to come by it is great to see a company backing our local cycling legends as much as they do. We caught up with Alan Hatherly after he took delivery of his Toyota Hilux 2.4 GD6 double cab to chat about 2020 as a pro rider and what he has lined up for the future with his new team, Cannondale Factory Racing.

  6. Hello all, I am looking at investing in a road bike with the idea to use it for the next decade, at least. I am weighing up two options, the Cannondale super six carbon (2015), 10-speed, which has american classic wheels, easton carbon handle bars and comes with a left-crank watt meter... compared to a Merida Scultura 4000 (2016), 11-speed, which has upgrades of campagnolo chorus parts. The Merida is about R3000 cheaper, when comparing both bikes as is. Any advice? I am waiting to hear whether a 52/36 crankset can fit the Merida, otherwise it will come with compact crank. Cannondale has a 52/36 already. Both bikes are second hand
  7. Evening all. I’m thinking of doing an everesting, and I was hoping to find out if I could convert my Supersix’s 53/39 spidering on si sl2 cranks to a 1x MTB chainring, I’m thinking 30t cannondale spidering. The reason I want to do this is because I am running campy super record and my max rear cog is 29, and this seems like a cheaper option if possible than a drivetrain upgrade. If you have any knowledge on the topic, please let me know!
  8. I found this Cannondale on the FB marketplace with cryptically little written about it: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1337450769777748/ in case anyone is on the lookout for this bike.
  9. Cannondale lifted the lid on their all-new Scalpel cross-country race bike today. The latest Scalpel has a completely new suspension design, updated geometry, and has managed to shed those all-important grams. Click here to view the article
  10. In 2016 they finished fourth. In 2017 they finished fifth. In 2018 they stepped onto the podium, finishing third. In 2019 they went one better, earning the silver medal. The question for the 2020 Absa Cape Epic is if Cannondale Factory Racing can add the names "Manuel Fumic and Henrique Avancini" to the race's list of overall winners. Click here to view the article
  11. Hi all I have in the past posted some photos in the Cannondale thread, but thought I'd add a little more detail here. My hope is to go under 5kgs by the end of the year. A little bit about me, I grew up in Cape Town and now live in London, so sourcing parts has been a little easier for this build, as eBay 2nd hand items have been great. Now, to the bike. The frame is a 2012 Supersix Evo HiMod. I had all the paint stripped by a custom paint shop in the UK. It was done by hand with sandpaper. Initially I planned on building this bike up mechanically, but I got a good deal on an eTAP group so went done the electronic road. The wheels are sub 1kg, along with sub 200gram tubs and 33gram(for the pair) skewers. The cassette is a SeqLite Alloy cassette weight just over 120grames, this means as a complete unit, the wheels are just over 1500grams. The bars are 3T ergonova 420mm nd weigh 193grams. The stem is a 3t Arx II in 130mm -17. I will be replacing the bar and stem with Bontrager's XXX Bar/Stem combo, which should save me around 100grams. Currently the bolts in the stem are hollow, and you can see through the center of them. I recently replaced the seatpost but have not yet trimmed it down so cannot comment on the weight. The sdalle is a Chinese copy of a Fizik Arione, but is pure carbon and weighs 115grams. the brakes are KCNC CB1, they were originally Zero Gravity Ti, but I was able to save around 30grams, and as this is a summer only bike, I can live with the braking quality (or lack there of) of the KCNC's Crank is a Cannondale SiSL2 50/34 and attached to that are Look Keo Blade Ti 20NM pedals. The bottle cage along witht he seatpost clamp and seatpost are all from a British lightweight tuning company called Mt.Zoom. The cage is 11grams and the seat clamp is 6 with a Ti bolt. I am on the hunt for the new style fork, as that will save around 50-60grams over my current one. Prior to the new seatpost, which Im hoping will save me around 20grams, the bike was sitting at 5.18kgs on the scales I do not have an up to date build list, but the build and progress can be viewed here: https://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=148290 I look forward to dragging this up all the hills I can find in CT at the end of the year, as I am home for Xmas. If anyone fancies a ride and a coffee, hit me up.
  12. I know it is late in the day, but it doesn’t hurt to try! My husband and I are looking to rent a Cannondale Road Tandem s/m road bike to use for the Argus (Cape Town Cycle Tour). We train at home (Namibia) on a 29’er Cannondale MTB but want to avoid traveling with the bike. Any leads would be appreciated. Thanks
  13. Hi guys, Help on this would be greatly appreciated!

  15. Hi there all Hubbers! Anyone that can give me some thoughts and reviews on the Cannondale Scapel SI bikes? This includes the Scapel 1 Carbon towards the Si Team bike. Coming from another bike brand, this will be my first Cannondale with the all Lefty Shock ect. Please share your positive and negative thoughts with me. Cheers
  16. Manuel Fumic is no stranger to South African audiences with memorable performances in the Absa Cape Epic while Maxime Marotte has been a solid podium performer on the international XCO circuit for a number of years. We tracked down their race bikes at the team house ahead of the Stellenbosch World Cup. View full article
  17. Cannondale have been brave with the new Scalpel-Si. While many manufacturers remain committed to the traditional cross-country / marathon bike formula, Cannondale have clearly taken a page from the progressive geometry book, packaging it into a serious race bike. We can only hope that this translates to fewer queues and more smiles on the single track at our local marathon events. Click here to view the article
  18. so i decided to spoil myself in the next few months with a new mtb bike. my first new bike ever after riding for more than 12 years... so with all the specials going on at the moment, and after eliminating a lot of potential bikes, i think i narrowed it down to two bikes: cannondale scalpel si 5 2017 model http://cyclelab.com/cannondale-scalpel-si-5-29-mountain-bike-2017/ OR scott spark 950 2018 model. http://cyclelab.com/scott-spark-950-29-mountain-bike-2018/ both go for R39 999 at cyclelab. I can;t decide though. the type of riding i wanna do: trans baviaans meets berg n bush meets wolwespruit meets spruit. which one would you guys pick and why? Bikes i've cancelled out due to price, reviews etc: Momsen vipa trail 1 spesialised camber comp trek fuel ex5 pyga oneten29 pyga stage yt jeffsey can't decide. help
  19. Morning all, So I'm pondering about getting a new bike. I currently have a 2013 Scott Spark 940 & I have narrowed it down to the above 4 2017 models which from my current knowledge are in a similar price bracket & the start of the carbon ranges. I've seen a few reviews but some are outdated & I will still search for more. I'm no race snake but enjoy my riding once or twice a week. I do the Trailseeker (current C batch) & USN (current B batch) series & want to do more stage races (possibly Joburg2C or Sani2C). I have done the 2 day Berg & Bush & I'm doing the Great Trek this year. I therefore need & want to step up my riding & go from 40km Trailseekers to 70 & from 30km USNs to 50. I'm therefore looking for a marathan/ XCO (not 100% sure of the difference) bike, not enduro etc. I am a Buffalo category (+-98kg) & 187cm tall if that helps with a view. I want the upgrade to be worth it & to be honest I want a good looking bike as well at that price, which I think they are. That is why I haven't added the Momsen Vipa 2 to the list as the yellow doesn't do it for me. I'm not a techie but detailed feedback will help. If not, then a ranking of 1 to 4 will also help. Advantage of the Scott is that I can trade in my current Scott at Cycle Lab who have already given me a value. I don't recall seeing the other brands there. Yes the value will be less than a private sale but it is instant, convenient in many ways & less chance of being scammed in the current world we live in. Other shops may do trade ins, I don't know, but this shouldn't be a deciding factor. Thanks!
  20. Need a little help. I am in the process of buying a new bike. One of the bikes i am interested in is Cannondale Lefty 2013/14 Cannondale Flash Team (large) Full carbon Team lefty fork Sram XX full grouppo Carbon seatpost ENVE carbon bar ZTR arch black edition wiele. Specialized carbon full rails saddle 2 x 10 Bike has a few nicks and scratchs. Shock lockout does not work. Any advice and what will be a good price on the bike?
  21. I recently upgraded to the new Cannondale Supersix evo after breaking my previous one, but soon realised that my sram red crank wont fit as the bottom bracket is wider than the standard bb30. It has 73mm bb shell instead of the standard 68mm, meaning that most road crankset axles are to short. Any one know what crankset would fit the frame other than the cannondale hollowgram cranks? Help!!
  22. Hey Guys First thread on here so take it easy on me haha... I have a Cannondale Trail 29 Hardtail. Used to ride a bit of DH at varsity (I sucked, good at crashing though.) and then focused on paddling and running the last 8-10 years. I decided to get back onto a bike cos it's fun and you can do such a cool mix of long explorey days and cool techy trail rides. Anyway, I bought my budget Cannondale Hardtail with tubeless done and the front derailleur removed by the previous owner as he was just using it to keep miles off his fancy bike for beachfront rides etc. I got it for R 9 500 only a year old in immaculate shape. So its 1x10 SLX and has the Shimano branded but no specific name (SLX / Deore etc) brakes. I manage 95% of the time with the 1x10 as he put on a 40t big cog - spin out on the downs obviously but that's fine. 34t chainring. I've done close to 100km days pretty comfortably and I manage most of the steep tech stuff ok too. I think that 1x11 would obviously be better if I want to do some stage / longer 1 day races. The brakes are also adequate but not much more than that. What sort of price would I be able to pick up a SLX 11 speed rear derailleur and cassette and some better brakes? Happy to trawl the used section of the hub until I can find something! I've put on wider Ritchey bars and a shorter (50mm) stem as it's a large and I'm probably in between M and L frames. Do you think it's worthwhile? I'm happy and comfortable on my bike and riding some pretty decent distances / speeds and technical stuff so don't feel the need to go full sus any time soon due to extra cost and service requirements etc.
  23. I was wondering if any hubbers could tell me what their Lefty shock service cost was more a less? I understand it depends on quite a lot, I just need a ball park figure. I'm not talking about the shock reset, I'm talking about the major service done by Omnico. Thanks!
