    They're due for final production this coming week.

    Nothing shipped last week because of computer upgrades.

    The Scalpel 1 should be out this week and the Scalpel 2 will be about 2 weeks later.

    scalpel 29er with 90mm left fork?

    Thinking of ordering a scalpel 29er frame and fork, selling the fork and mounting my flash 29er build kit including the 90mm carbon lefty. However The lefty on the 29er is a 100mm, anybody foresee issues with this set up? I ride the suspension pretty firm in the front and rear.

    I think lefty on the 29er with 100mm travel is optimal. 90mm leftys (like these in flash) are good in hardtails.

    mine also said november
    I made a phone call to cannondale Europe and a friendly dutch guy told me that he could see my order on some list there and that is was due for last week of december. he said it was wise to ad 2 weeks to that date....
    so first week 2012 its gonna happen I hope.
    he told me its first come first served ( it was not possible to order bikes before the end of june so ordering in 2010 was no use) ;-)

    No shops have any Scalpel 29's in stock. Not one has been shipped. That particular shop is advertising just like most, that is, putting the 2012 models on their site with pricing, regardless of them being in stock. The bikes are on the site for consumers to see the model line.

    Scalpel 29er's are shipping now. Freshbikes in Arlington VA got two Scalpel 29er 1's. Go to bikerumor to see it.

    Here's some pics that weren't on Bikerumor. Mainly because the Scalpel built for the Bikerumor pics was just thrown together for the photos. I rebuilt it for the owner of Freshbikes with a few changes. Enjoy.

    Very nice. Looks like it's already seeing action judging by the dirt. Any first impressions on the ride quality?

    Damn that's a great looking bike! (lately I've been thinking less about the Ripley)
    Hurry up with the ride report.

    Just a quick suggestion....you may want to reroute the rear brake line to the inside of the seatstay (just unbolt the caliper and flip) so it doesn't get damaged.

    I'm jealous....that's the build I'm looking at, too. Those XTR brakes are incredible...This means mine should be coming soon

    I personally haven't had a chance to ride it off road, just around the parking lot. The feedback I've gotten though is that it blows everything else out of the water. It's super fast, flickable, and does everything a 26er does only better. With the short stays and rear suspension it rides like a faster, smoother, more comfortable Flash. Plus a side note, the XLR with the remote hydro lockout is a must have.
    We got two of these in our store and sold 1 last night. We could have sold both but there's no way we're letting them both go right now.

    my local shop got a demo bike from Cannondale and I got to ride it yesterday. Man this bike is fast. I have also ridden a 26r scalpel and the 29r is a faster version. It rails the corners without feeling hyper. The demo bike is a 1 but not exactly specd as a 1 is and weighed 23lbs...

    If you like the 26r scalpel you will love the 29r. There wasn't anything bad to say about it and thats with it not being truly setup for me either...

    I rode it on my home trail on which I have logged many many hours and I was instantly faster on this bike. There are tight turns and S turns that I was able to rail with confidence and keep my speed up. I have a 2 on order now

    My LBS has a Carbon 1 in stock. I do believe it is lighter than my already light hardtail 29er. Wooden Wheels in Newark, DE. It is available for purchase.

    Disclaimer: I shop there.
    Thanks to www.weavercycleworks.com for my awesome bike frames!

    black/white one appears to be a large and green/black/white appears to be a medium.
    I think the second pic is a lot better color combo than the pain black white.

    Incorrect. Black/white is Carbon 1 and green/black/white is carbon 2.

    Got mine

    I picked up my Carbon Scalpel 1 last night. Its pretty awesome. Ive spent time on both the Epic 29 and the Superfly 100 and this bike is better. Its sort of a mix of the two, is nice and comfy like the superfly, but its much quicker and more responsive like the Epic. Pretty much perfect. Tonight it gets turned into the Scalpel Ultimate with Enve wheels and various other upgrades, that is if I dont just ride all evening. 23.3 lbs stock with goofy plastic flat pedals and tubes.

    Sorry, but I think you missed the point - Look at the frame again. Obviously a difference in the junction where the top tube meats the seat tube, but this is likely due to sizing.

    First post Ordered a Flash Carbon 1 29er myself, but still unsure if I should have had the Scalpel?!

    Going through the specs on C'dale USA and they show the 1 with a PF30 and the 2 has a BB30. Printing error or true?
    Damn the 2 has a great color scheme.

    Yes, Cannondale adapted the design depending of the size, basically, making sure every size has it's stiffness/weight optimized.

    As for the PF30 vs BB30, I think it's a typo, pretty sure they're all PF30.

    This was acknowledged to in fact be true (not a typo) when brought to the attention of a Cannondale rep by the manager at my lbs. However, he could not state why it is not PF30 like the 1. Since this is a completely new frame I have no idea why it is not the same???

    It was more to show the different design where the swing link is attached. If it was my size, I'd still ride it with the sticker.

    And it does look like a PF30 BB shell to me... but I don't know at what point in development/testing those pictures were taken.

    I am 5"10 does anyone knows which size shall do for me. there is a huge gap between an M and a L on the length of the top tube. the large is pretty long. Combined with the min length of the stem of 90mm it seems too long in large and too short in M. I ride a Tallboy Large with 75mm stem - any recommendations?
