    I got this bike for Christmas from my bunny gurl Car... after starting to commute on a bike to work last year and buying a specialized "work" which is nice for its job....but this Cannondale is a whole new level...it's just a delight to ride...the thing I notice the most is the weight distribution when I am climbing a hill seated or upright for power...it is even keeled...I am new to this cycling thing but I enjoy myself so much its like therapy for your mind as well as your body....I am 48 years old this month and I truly feel like 28 being in better shape..and it is the bike rides that do it...Thanks for making such a nice sturdy product and in the right price range...outstanding job on this Quick...the color rocks also! Thanks...RJ Setting

    Started riding again after many, many years of doing something else. The Cannondale Quick 5 is a great way to start. Rode it for eight months until I no longer used the small chain ring. Back to the bike store and traded up to a Cannondale Synaspe 105.

    The components leave much to be desire and if I had to do it again, I'd go with the Quick 4. The rear derailleur is really not very good and the rims and brake pads are always needing cleaning.

    The bike rides and handles well, but as another poster mentioned you get what you pay for and this case it's true. Love Cannondale products! In my case the trade-in and the discount off the top of the Synaspe, meant I got to ride for 8 months almost free!

          I just loved it. Great bike. I rode for 20kms without getting tired. So much of a difference. I have other bikes but this is definitely better. So smooth

                I ride Cannondale quick 5 everyday for exercise. About 15-20 kms. On weekends about 30-40 kms. Cannondale quick 5 is a great bike. I have not seen any hybrid bike lighter than this. May be the carbon ones only. Roads in my area are not good. But the 27" tyres take it well. Picks up speed quickly. Very satisfied with this.

                                  I love this bike. My other Cannondale was stolen and I bought this bike because I decided I couldn't live without one. Now I appreciate it so much! It rides like a dream on a bike path and on grass/rock, etc. It's such a smooth ride, gears shift easily, seat is surprisingly comfortable. I'm going to have fenders put on it so I can ride in the rain and while the handlebars are comfortable, I ride long distances and need to see if there's something more I can do for the handlebars so my hands don't go numb on a long ride.

                                        I bought this bike after deciding to cycle casually for the first time since I was a kid. It was easy on the wallet and seemed to give me everything I needed. During the past 9 months it has served me well on roads and limestone trails. It seems durable and really has not missed a lick. Sometimes I wish I'd sprung for the next grade with carbon forks, but even after a 50 mile/4 hour ride I'm ok. Hands are numb but 50 miles is about as long as I go. Now I'm interested in having a road bike as well and this exprience leans me toward another Cannodale.

                                              I started out looking at comfort bikes with suspension but after careful research and opinions from local bikers i decided the Quick 5 was best for fast exercise pace ...it's light, quick and easy to add accesories...I am getting back to cycling after over 20 years and this bike is great for me. Only thing i wish it had was some adjustability to the height of the bars and pedals that can accomodate stirrups... Other than that it is a great bike...

                                                      I ride my 2012 Quick 5 all over town in So Cal. I bought this to replace my car. First day out on the road, I get pulled over going down hill for speeding, 48mph in a 40mph zone. Needless to say I was shocked. Handled well, took a pot hole 2.5inches deep at about 35-40mph and only broke a spoke. It lived up to its Quick name. The only complaint is that the derailleurs aren't the best, but great for the price. Well other day it got stolen from my back yard. I was so happy with the bike I am going to go buy another one soon!

                                                        Best if you are starting out and want a nice bike. If you are an avid cyclist this is not the bike for you. Very good what I would describe as an "entry" level bike. Components are biggest drawback but you get what you pay for and the components on the Quick 5 leave much to be desired.

                                                          I got this bike for Christmas from my bunny gurl Car... after starting to commute on a bike to work last year and buying a specialized "work" which is nice for its job....but this Cannondale is a whole new level...it's just a delight to ride...the thing I notice the most is the weight distribution when I am climbing a hill seated or upright for power...it is even keeled...I am new to this cycling thing but I enjoy myself so much its like therapy for your mind as well as your body....I am 48 years old this month and I truly feel like 28 being in better shape..and it is the bike rides that do it...Thanks for making such a nice sturdy product and in the right price range...outstanding job on this Quick...the color rocks also! Thanks...RJ Setting

                                                            A great all-around bike for the money! I use to cycle on a road bike regulary. I unfortunately had to get major back surgery (L3-L4-L5-S1 Fusion) just a few years ago and a road bike profile just wont work for me anymore. Cycling is the only excercise i really enjoy and a hybrid was the perfect choice for me. Cannondale was the best value, in my opinion, when considering style, quality and innovation. There are other slightly less expensive products in the hybrid market however, you do get what you pay for in most cases. The parts are par for the price and I research ALOT before a purchase like this. I would recommend the Quick to anyone. this is a really cool ride!!!
