    2014 models

    When do the 2014's come out? For reference, does anyone know when the 2013's first became available?

    I started seeing pictures of the 2013 F29s around july 2012. You probably have to wait a bit

    If memory serves me correctly, a bike shop in New Zealand was the first to have any pics & info last year. I think we all blew up their server though, doubt they do it again. I think it was before the USA dealer meetings, which are coming up soon I think.

    Things get leaked earlier and earlier every year but it takes awhile for the official site to show new models. Someone will post them here when they show up.

    I am eager to know as well what goodies are awaiting us, but..
    Isn't it the general case that every year prices goes up and components level goes down

    Yeah, but the technology trickles down so it's usually a draw.

    Here are some 2014... Doesn't look like the Scalpel 29er and F29 FRAMES will change much, updated paint, new specs... Mavic mountain bike tires?

    So they aren't doing an Ultimate anymore? Looks like the Team is now the top model. I wonder if it'll come in another colorway as well. Also, it looks like the Team version doesn't have a SAVE seatpost?

    Hard to say.
    Different countries get different models.

    Well, the team replica has XX1, Enve wheels, swap the Avid brakes for something else and you're close to the ultimate setup... Unless it's the blacked out color theme you want. These are euro models... and it's not every models.

    As for the SAVE post, many people don't like it because of the movement or because it's heavy, it's often the first part to go on Flashes...

    Carbon 2 has great colors , i think is missing the ultimate and the alloy models , same frame for scalpel and f29 , probably an rz replacement , 650 b versions and something else ... these are european models ,and will be available in a couple of weeks .

    2014 models

    The HiMods look like they have 142x12 axles. I'm "seeing/wishful thinking" that the axle is immediately above that derailleur hanger....

    Looking at the hi-res pictures from Cannondale it looks like 12x142mm axle on Hi-mod, standard frame still normal qr.

    But it's not mentioned in the frame description

    Why not? One guess, some models featuring SRAM's new X01 group (XX1 tech trickled down to X.0 level) may be kept closer to the chest since SRAM hasn't unveiled the group yet... I wouldn't be surprised if the F29 1 and Scalpel 1 were speced with it...

    As far as I understand it, 142 x 12 doesn't make as big a difference on a hardtail as it does on a full suspension bike. So maybe they won't go that way on the F29.

    By Carbon 1, do you mean Ultimate? Or is the Ultimate more?

    Also, I understand the launch time to be around 13-15 of August.

    Is there even a prototype 650B Flash being used by someone on the World Cup circuit? I guess the new XTR group won't show up til the 2015 bikes?

    Rush in a trigger platform ? i really dont believe ,trigger is a very very close design of jeckyll ,i guess it will be the rz replacement , 120mm with an alloy frame or maybe with also a carbon one but with lower price , i really hope a sexy design ,nothing as spec camber that is horrendus , but as a single pivot ? rush is legendary ,so do it well or give up , since last two years im speaking about a legendary return of rush ,so its now ?

    As much as I think the Trigger does everything the Rush did and then some, the beauty of a Rush type of bike, even with similar travel is that without the travel adjust, the DYAD shock and a simpler rear suspension, it would be cheaper and potentially lighter... But, isn't the Scalpel 29er making a Rush pretty pointless? Yes it has a tiny less travel but with the big wheels, the Scalpel 29er does whatever the old Rush did better, it's marketed as a race bike, but it's a wonderful trail bike.

    I guess we'll see. I don't have any insider info on this... but heard way back when it was introduced that the 29er Trigger would get a carbon frame eventually. And yeah, the SuperMax with more travel for 26 (or 27.5) wheels was a given...

    Re: 2014 models

    When you move the headset spacer to the bottom and put a Hans Dampf 2.35 on the front... the scalpel will destroy the bikes you mention.

    I can guarantee that at least the Scalpel Ultimate will come with a carbon swing link and steerer tube.

    I was talking with a dealer and was told they will be able to leak out info about 2014 models on the 28th of this month - immediately after the dealer camp.

    Interesting, the Carbon 2 comes standard with the Wheels MFG BB30 adapters to fit the XT crankset. Surprising to me that it's an option from the factory.

    If the team replica version (as seen floating around on the net) is the top version, the F29 Carbon 1 would have to have X01, because it seems it's no longer possible to use a direct mount front derailleur on the Hi-Mod frame (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...e=3&permPage=1)

    Might just be the Photoshop job, these pre-release images are needed before production starts so often they're pieced together in Photoshop so the catalogs and other such things are ready on time.

    But if indeed there'sno tab, that's good too, front derailleurs already seem so outdated!

    If you can put on a big chainring. If a 38 doesn't fit the frame then I would want a double. Riding around my local trails on a 32 would suck. 32 is too small.

    The CFR guys ride their's with a 36t ring most of the time, I'm pretty sure a 38t would also fit.

    'Cause the guys at Cannondale aren't dummies, unlike some other companies that aren't compatible with anything bigger than a 32.

    Yes, might be an early production or photoshop job.

    Here is a press image from last year's F29 team carbon and it also is missing the front derailleur mounts and last year definitely had them...

    Some details about scalpel 29, new Rush 29 and trail:
    Cannondale Scalpel Black Inc. To Trail And Tango - BikeRadar

    Scalpel got a new full carbon link and stealth routing for dropper seatpost.
    But personally I'd prefer to see it in XX1 configuration rather than XTR...

    When is the XTR re-design due? With XX1 and now X01, Shimano has fallen waaaaaay back in the mountain bike drivetrains... The last announced XTR update was a no show, only losing a few grams, updated brakes (which got uglier with the finned rotors but they work soooo well!).

    No idea. You're supposed to tell me! :P
    I was hoping that it would be on the new 2014 bikes but I haven't seen anything yet.
