    Cannondale Rize

    Has anyone ridden one? Or own one?
    How are they on the All Mountain?
    What kind of ridding are you doing on them?
    They appear to be a real sick aggresive trail bike.

    I ride with a group of guys that all ride the rize. Several carbon rize 1s and a few rize 3s. they hit all the tough lines, jumps, and climb everything. I ride an enduro with a vanilla 36 and recently demoed a rize 3 with a lefty and really enjoyed it. After getting the suspension dialed in, I had a great time on the bike. The one thing that impressed me the most was the climbing ability. I made all the tough climbs that I would of had trouble with on my enduro, and felt like I hadn't put out any effort at the end of the day. Find a shop to demo one and I think you will be impressed as well

    I rode a pre production version provided by a Cannondale rep at a local trail (MN). It was aluminum not carbon, the suspension was butter smooth and the longer travel bike was lighter than my Trek Top Fuel 9.9 SSL! I couldn't believe it. Not a fan of the Lefty though, strange looking fork thing, not for me.
