    2009 Rush SL rear wheel travel....

    What is the actual rear wheel travel of the Rush?
    Is the SL different from the "normal" Rush?
    According to the 2009 cannondale catalog it is 4.7" = 120mm but I always thought it was 4.3" = 110mm???
    Can somebody shed some light on this for me?
    Thanks!

    I have a 2008 Rush SL, and the travel is 110. I think that the frame didn't change for 2009.

    Hope this helps.
    Just try to be happy and smile every day.

    That's what I thought too, but cannondale spec sheet said something else....I remember someone saying here that it is actually more, was only "said" to be 110 to "match" the lefty 110....???? Can't find that thread though....

    So the Rush is a 120mm/4.7" bike afterall! Lbs said it was only marketed as a 110mm bike because of the Lefty 110 and it just "looks" better to stick with the smaller number.....just like the first Rize 130 which was actually a 140mm rear wheel travel frame but since they only had the Lefty Max130 at that time the travel was marketed "accordingly".
    All of my catalogs (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009) support this btw...I doubt cannondale would have the same typo in their spec sheets year after year, after year.......
