    2013 Cannondale Scalpel 29er Carbon 1 changes

    I was able to get some info yesterday as Cannondale released the 2013 lineup info to their dealers. I'm interested in this years Scalpel 29er Carbon 1, they have changed the paint scheme to the World Cup colors. Other notable spec changes are 1) Wheelset changed to Reynolds Carbon 29er , 2) Crank changed to Sram X.O , 3) Rear shock changed to Sram XX with X-Loc remote Lockout (not pictured), 4) New Lefty (not Pictured). What do you guys think about the 2013 version ??? They didn't make any changes to the other Scalpel 29er's, the Ultimate, Carbon 2, Alloy 3, & Alloy 4 all stay the same except they will be getting the new Lefty, paint schemes and specs remain the same as 2012 models.

    I rode a alloy 4 this weekend and it's a smooooooth bike. The new lefty is going to be very good.

    Scapel is a very nice lineup for sure.

    Holy hell that thing is fugly. The NASCAR comment is spot-on. Hopefully it rides better than it looks.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    About painting, Carbon 2 in green color is better.

    Whatt is the price? I think that bike competes well against the Epic S-Works. Holy cow .... If this is the dash-1.... What is the spec on the Ultimate? I like the graphics, but then again I'm a triathlete. (Please dont let that get out).

    Red, black and blue....Ugh! I prefer the 2012 simple (matte) B/W scheme of the carbon 1 or even the B/W and green on the Carbon 2. Wtf, no more Sl crank??

    That bike will look sweet as soon as you protect the down tube with a layer of gorilla tape

    FL hmmm you are missing rocks, gnarly climbs and the concept of flying down hill on blown out trails

    This.

    They've taken this color scheme onto one of the supersix road bikes and it actually looks awesome, but this is tragic. The wheelset change... meh. The shock change... meh. The crank change... lame.

    Only positive to me is the new lefty - while I resent the use of a bushing in a lefty, I think the hybrid setup and no more boot / greasing will potentially be awesome as a mechanic and user for simplified maintenance. Anxious to ride one to see how the bushing does.

    Well, what ever this thing looks like, I can tell you this, it rides AMAZING! I rode a 2012 29er Carbon 1 extensively over some pretty technical stuff (Preston trail @ Tiger Mt.WA) and the bike performed flawlessly. Ridiculously fast, nimble, great climber, precise and the new LEFTY will only make things better.

    I really wish they had stuck w/the matte finish and simple color scheme though. Or even something similar to the new Trigger graphics. Let's wait and see what the actual bikes that the dealers look like though.

    IMO, it's the best FS 29er on the market.....if you can afford one, buy one!!

    The look is bold, colorful, but not for me. However I bet it performs better than it looks.
