The finer 29'er.

LEFTY SYSTEM INTEGRATION

The unmatched light weight and precision of our Lefty fork is an even bigger advantage on 29'ers. It's class leading stiffness and light weight make an even bigger difference on the big wheeled bikes. Combined with the superlight Si OPI stem/steerer and Hollowgram SL BB30 Cannondale's System Integration sheds hundreds of grams.

SAVE SEATPOST

Through the use of sophisticated carbon layups our SAVE seatpost adds over 20mm of comfort enhancing, bump absorbing damping to the frame. Less vibration results in reduced fatigue and increased comfort, letting you ride longer and faster.

SPEED SAVE VIBRATION ELIMINATION TECHNOLOGY

SPEED SAVE rear stays create a ride-tuned micro suspension system that allows the rear wheel to track the ground, improving control, traction and handling. This allows the bike to roll faster, accelerate better and corner harder.

                    I use this bike to ride in the Hamptons where I live. I bought it for myself as a fathers day gift. It's super fast.. It's handles perfectly for a bike with only one fork. I was hesitant when I saw it at first, but when I took it for a test ride after riding half a block I was SOLD. Do not under estimate this bike. It;s Awsome.. It corners incredibly, It handles perfectly, it's braking system is impeccable... It's super comfortable... It makes me want to ride until my legs hurt or until my legs are tired ..

                    It's a very attractive bike so you CAN'T LEAVE IT ALONE ANYWHERE... I am never selling this bike... BUY THIS BIKE AND YOU WILL FALL INLOVE WITH IT... IT'S A BEAUTY.... IT'S VERY ATTRACTIVE UP CLOSE AND IN PERSONAL... SEEING IT ONLINE DOES NO JUSTICE FOR IT... BUT WHEN YOU SEE IT IN PERSON YOU WILL BUY IT IMMEDIATELY...

                    BUYING THIS BIKE WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE...

                    THIS IS MY FIRST PROFESSIONAL BIKE ... And I am tempted to buy an extra one in a different color......

                    Don't hesitate... BUY IT NOW .... You'll enjoy it.... I AM .... :)

                    Ride this 3-5 times a week on challenging 9 mile cross country trail. coming from a newer gary fisher 29er, I could not believe the difference. f291 is much lighter, faster handling, climbing freak. improved my fastest time significantly. wish I would have purchased sooner.
                    Only con is we had an extremely wet spring so trails were wet which required frequent washing. after 2-3 washes headset and crank began to creak. disassembled, relubed then good to go.
