    wow, this thread is way more entertaining than I would have guessed from the title

    PS. I think I read somewhere that the SL4 or possibly the SL5 was Cannondale's top selling model. Not too surprising seeing them show up in Costco. Medium size only though is pretty funny.

    They showed up because someone screwed up plain and simple , if someone buys one there they're screwed out of a lifetime warranty on the frame and the year or two on the parts ...

    Costco has a great return policy.

    Yes Mr. I know all shop owner, they have been sold there in the past. Sorry to break the news to you. It may have even been before Dorel took ownership of Cannondale.

    Are you always this friendly and cool to potential customers? Good luck with that chip on your shoulder.......

    How many of these entry level frames fail. I'm looking at getting a cannondale for riding on bike paths. Should I be worried about this brand of bikes failing under light duty use?

    I am 100% positive Costco has sold Cannondale before. Why so certain you might ask? Well, I read it on the internet, so it must be true!
    This link to an article posted on 4/11 (toward end of 6th paragraph) states this is the case. I suggest 'singletracker72' contact and yell at the writer of said article for being a clueless fool who spews bs from his piehole.

    LOL, Singletracker has waited 3 years to make his first post on MTBR in this thread, he has been stalking these forums night and day polishing his Cannondale waiting for the right moment to make a full frontal attack, waiting for a moment to get the red highlights out n kick some ass.
    I think after a 3 year wait its not a bad first post, i personally am looking forward to his next few, dont let anybody stop you singletracker, your on a role mate n doing well
    Dont ever let the truth get in the way of a funny story....

    You guys need to chill out. First off, I don't think it matters where you buy a bike as long as you ride it. It would be more tragic if you bought a high end bike and just park after a ride or so. OR you could be this kid:

    'Ride Giant. Ride Whistler' Video Contest Winner Announced... - Pinkbike

    Secondly, I think Cannondale is a good brand, despite the "crack-n-fail" title (actually the first time I've heard it). I've always wanted a Cannondale in the nineties when they came out with those oversized down tubes (friend had an M1000 that weighed less than 24 lbs in 1994!). The current OverMountain series (Jekyll and Claymore) look pretty awesome in my mind. I can see why Singletracker's feathers could be ruffled by claims of an inferior product.

    Oh, and my first legitimate MTB bike? This Costco bike (Skykomish Marble Point).

    No chip , just don't like when stupid people speak of things they know nothing about ... What shop do I own ? You would never know if you walked through the front door and we're the 3rd largest in sales for Cannondale in the US ... It's a fact that this is first time in Cannondales history they've been put in Costco ... I'm just glad that distributor has been cut ... Nothing devalues a brand like ending up in Costco or walmart ....

    A friend of mine who happens to be a Manager at a Costco just told me that their store is selling several Cannondales. He didn't know how his store got the bikes.
    What's up with that? Am I going to start seeing C-dales at Costco's, Kmart's, and Wal Marts all over the country?

    07-05-01, 12:48 PM
    The problem that I see is that Costco is not selling discounted c-dales. These aren't rebadged huffy's. They are selling $2500 Jeckyll's and $3700 road bikes. Yes, $2500 is the price they are selling the Jeckylls for and $3700 is the price of the road bike.

    They are doing great diservice to the poor sucker who buys such an expensive bike there and then might get screwed if C-dale refuses to warranty their bike.

    This also doesn't seem to make much business sense. I can see if they were selling the bikes at a third of their original cost but these bikes are still priced at over two grand. I doubt these bikes will be moving very quickly.

    I would be pretty unhappy dealing with a situation like this too.

    Think about how this will affect singletracker's business. He is going to lose more than a few sales to Costco and it will make his Cannondales seem cheap for those who make the connection. That is going to hurt.

    I found this article on the interweb about the cannondale Costco scandal.

    http://www.bicycleretailer.com/inter...r-costco-sales

    I thought the most interesting part was that it says Costco's north rock bikes are made by Giant. I apologize if this is already common knowledge. It was news to me.

    U know what else devalues a brand? When their dealers go on the internet and make an S of themselves flaming others.

    Also, good job refusing to honor the warranties. "We fully stand behind our bikes. Except these ones."

    You really need a cookie and a nap.



    Just having a good chuckle over the expressed anger to actual issue ratio in that post. It's like you blew off a waiter's head with a shotgun for putting too much pepper on your salad.

    No personal experience with recent Cannondale MTBs, but my wife has a new Supersix road bike and loves it. Great service and support from local dealer. My road bike is a Diamondback, which makes some of the best carbon frames I've ridden down to the some of the worst dime store bikes I've seen. Again, buy a bike for the specs and fit, not the name.
