          Just bought two as my wife and I prepare for the 340 mile trip from Pittsburgh to Washington DC. We selected the Cannondale over the Trek for comfort, ease of shifting and versatility of changing positions. Our first 38 mile training trips have convinced us that we made the right choice. Try it and compare it.

          Great suspension but problematic stem

                First off, this bike LOOKS fantastic. Very cool aesthetics, great gearing, decent stock tires and wheels.

                The gimmick stem seems like a positive, but I am CONSTANTLY tightening both the stem and the handlebar clamp. After a few bumpy rides the handlebars begin to spin downward gradually, noticeable once you can't see the gearing numbers (or handlebar mirror points skyward). I can't say i'd recommend the bike, and this largely comes from the stem.

                Also to note, after one month my pedal became atrociously creaky which no lubricant can solve. I'm going to need to replace it.

                The best part of the bike besides the looks and gearing is the suspension. This is one smooth ride. The oversized seat also adds tons of comfort.

                Would I recommend it? The stem hurts its commuter value. I imagine at some point I'll be replacing it for something more traditional. The frame/suspension saves the bike from being returned. I won't recommend it, but I respect it enough to proudly own it.

                      I ride in the city about 40 miles per week. I've had this bike now for about 9 months and have had to replace rear drive side spokes 3 times. They usually break 1 or 2 at a time. It is annoying and costly as the wheel has to be partially disassembled and re-trued. Not covered under warranty when I called the dealer who sold me the bike.

                            No faults so far. Great comfortable bike. Purchased to keep up with my daughter. I also bought one for my wife. Great value.

                            If you can fall asleep while biking this is the bike.

                              Just test drove the adventure 2 2012 model large frame. I found this unit a pleasure to ride. Very smooth and stable. brakes were strong. gears were working properly, quick precise shifts, no rubbing sounds. Wheels were straight and true, nice rotation. I selected this bike over the Trek Verve, and the Specialized hybrids.
                              I told my local dealer to order it today from another store location, put down a deposit.
                              it's a lot of bike for yhe money.

                                Difficult to find anything wrong. May purchase one for my wife later.
