              From racing in Leadville to crusin' the town, the Scalpel is super all around luxury. So lightweight yet strong enough for POWERLINE and monster climbs. The 2013 Lefty fork has is all with sheek looks and excellence in geometry design that result in incredible performance backed with Cannondale reputation. Ummm, and ENVE wheels!? OMG!

                    A better bike you should look longer for, if you have the money offcourse. A tip is have a good look at the size, because its very small differences between the M and L. But you can save some lbs if you can use the smaller size frame.

                          The bike's design is for serious racing. The only problem is that the remote lockout on the rear shock doesn't work. You have a bike that can be described as a soft tail and not a dual suspension. Hard pedaling is energy sapping. This bike is no match for other well known bike's. Sorry, happened the have both!

                          Don't tell my non-observant wife that I've had 16 mountain bikes in 20 years. All of these bikes were XC race bikes. This bike shines above them all. It is stiff [read as "efficient"], light, comfortable and handles like a race car! Point and shot - climbs like a goat. The ENVE/DT Swiss wheels are simply the best. Stoked to ride this bike 3x a week all year round.
