          I had a 2007 Blur LT - which is a great bike but was getting a little long in the tooth. So I wanted to upgrade and demo'ed a bunch of bikes, liked this one the most and always wanted to try a Cannondale. I did not expect to find this bike to be that much of a difference or improvement,...just newer and with bigger wheels...whoop-dee-doo. Man was I wrong. This thing freakin' flies - it is crazy stable, it handles, it climbs, it descends like a rocket, it is geared perfectly (2x10). The rear lockout is awesome. I am now a biking God. If you see me coming - just get outta the way.

          I was excited to try the TRIGGER 29er and had high expectations of the bike, I have been riding a SCALPEL Team 08, and wanted a more comfortable less race oriented bike but still wanted XC performance, but better downhill and trail handling. The travel is perfect and the Dyad shock is what really makes this bike worth its weight in gold. The only thing I don't care for are the x7 shifters they are a little sloppy. Otherwise there is nothing else I would change on this bike. The wheels are great, although the rear hub is a little slow to engage. My first ride was a 22 mile ride, it ate everything up with ease handling was on par with 26er. The Geometry is spot on. Do your self a favor and get a TRIGGER!

            This is a great mountain bike. I ride a small frame and had to still cut 2" off seat post. The knock on 29ers v. 26ers was climbing. This bike climbs better than my Rush 26" bike. On decents it is even more amazing. I am going down hill faster than ever on down hills. Goes over everyting. Only limit is me. I have named my bike "beer goggles" because it gets you to try things you otherwise wouldn't.

              This bike is an all-mountain beast. It floats down the rough. Any effort translates directly into moving the bike. It is incredibly nimble, as dexterous as any 26" wheeled bike I've ridden. Climbs are easier. What used to be technical is now normal. Cannondale nailed this one. This bike is cheating. A carbon version should be illegal.
