              I've been riding carbon mtn bikes for at least 16 years. Had an aluminum road bike about 10 years ago that was fairly top of the line with ultegra components, but just never got used to harshness of riding on the road with it. Now that I'm back on the road again, the Quick Carbon 2 puts a smile on my face every time I get to execute a mid-week training ride. It absorbs all the road imperfections that I can throw at it with aplomb. It gathers speed rather quickly even though it's not a pure race bike or sportive. But the best part of owning the Quick Carbon is that it's comfortable and looks like no other bike on the road.

                    I've had my Carbon 2 for three months and 1600 miles including a 225 mile road trips and numerous 25 mile rides. There's a lot to like about the C2. It has very responsive handling. It's about 10 pounds lighter than my old aluminum frame bike it replaces. It has a very smooth ride on the "chip and seal" pavement common in western NY. It's also about 0.75 MPH faster than my old bike. Finally, I get lots of positive comments from other riders, particularly about its appearance - It's a flat black bike with red striping and Cannondale logos everywhere - real sharp. My riding buddies christened it a "hybred hybred" because it's half way between a conventional hybred and a road bike in that it has 28mm tires and not quite so upright riding position, but it retains straight handle bars.

                    My "nit picks" are few. First, I don't especially like the thumb shifters. The paddle throw, particularly on the ring gears, is very long as noted in an earlier review. Also, the shifts, while "crisp" come a split second after the "click" is heard from the shifter. I feel the older twist shifters on my old bike performed much better. Second, be aware that this (and all carbon frame bikes) do not have a kick stand. I have purchased a "Click Stand" that, while not as convenient to use, is an acceptable substitute.

                    This bike is fairly "high end" for a non-road bike. However, if you're "old" (late '60's) like me and need a more upright riding position yet still want a bike with a little more flash and zip, then this could be the bike for you.

                          Incredibly smooth ride, shifting flawless, takes hills as easily as straightaways.
                          Absolute pleasure to use.

                            My first Cannondale was in 2000 It was a Hybrid 700 Silk Road.. Couldn't kill it So I gave it away.. I tried to get this bike last year Sold out by June I just got this Quick Carbon 2 this week! I put 50 miles on it so far Fantastic bike.. It's like a BMW M3 of the hybrids.. The handling,the look,the speed, Total comfort.. Anyone who decides to purchase this bike? It's worth the investment. You will not be disappointed This is my third Cannondale.. This company is committed to their products They are second to none in my book.. Keep up the innovative work!!!
