    The whole helmet range is posted at Bikerumor.com with weights and very good prices (not expensive at all), they're nice! The rest was already known but, keep us posted if something else or more details pops up.

    Yeah, I have those pictures and a bunch more on my computer. I want to see the next bike down color and specs. I wonder if the Super X will be offered with the new Ultegra group.

    Holy crap. The Flash 29er Ultimate is full XX/Hollowgrams and comes with Enve wheels, etc! Jeesh, that's nice.
    I hate how they have XTR bikes but then have a junk crank and Avid brakes. The XTR crank and brakes are the best parts of the group.

    29ers in size S?

    So it seems the Scalpel 29er in S is a go, and on page 67 they list the Flash 29er Alloy as being available in size S this year, but further down, under each model, they only list M, L, and XL as the available sizes. What gives?

    I want a size Small 29er Alloy!

    Small 29ers is as weird as XL 26ers if you ask me... it's like a 300lbs guy wearing 32" pants or a 130lbs guy wearing 40" pants...

    Here is the Scalpel 29er geometry...

    I agree it just must look odd in some way. They must figure for cost cutting measures don't even bother offering it. How many people will really need a size Small in a 29'er.

    Heck I have a 2011 Quick CX 3 in a Small frame with 700c tires 2hich are 28" and it looks almost out of whack bike wheels tiny frame.

    just can'r decide if my new MTB will be a Titanium MOtobecane or a Carbon 29'er from Cdale

    Yeah, I know. Just curious if they're re-vamping the Synapses as well. The EVO and new Slice are already known, and re-doing the Synapse as well is a big undertaking for a model year, esp. in a crappy global economy. But they did have that Synapse prototype for Paris-Roubaix.

    although i love the new CFR colours... bloody glad i bought a 2011 model. spec's have come down on virtually all models and looks as though prices havent changed. big gap on the scalpel / flash ultimate is the replacement of the dt swiss xcr 1.2 wheels for crossmax slr. the "1" models last year were full XTR with crossmax slr, now they are mix of XTR, X0, crappy SRAM crank and DT Swiss wheels.

    The 2011 1 models didn't have XTR brakes or cranks either. They had FSA cranks and Marta brakes.
    The Flash 29er Ultimate has a awesome spec list. I wonder what that one will cost, 10 grand?

    I think the SRAM crank they're using is a relabeled X.0...which is one of the best BB30 cranks available (aside from the Hollowgram Si). Avid brakes though....I don't know, especially with the revamped Shimano offerings out there.

    I'll just list the chages/upgrades.


    XX drivetrain with 122mm spindle, FRM 40/27 rings and the 2011 XX/WC brakes because I likes the looks and that adjuster thing doesn't do much on the normal XX levers.

    Edge/Enve tubulars, Extralite hubs with 28 Dt Swiss aeroblade spokes.

    2011 Cannondale Si 120/-20 stem to get the carbon FSA bar down and carbon railed Antares saddle.

    Geax Saguaro tubular tires and Crank Candy11's.


    I just rode the bike on some sweet Colorado single track and it's whippy, really whippy. I mean I don't think you could get any less rigid and still call it a mountain bike. But as long as you enjoy riding hardtails (I always have), and keep it pointed straight, it's perfectly adequate for full duty XC riding. I weigh 160 lbs though, much heavier and I wonder if the front end would be stiff enough.

    You mean the Di2 Ultegra, I assume... and what road bikes will they offer with it?

    I'd like to see a Flash 29'er with that Ultegra Di2, wonder if there'll be a long cage variant of that RD.

    I'd also like to ride one of those Slicer's once in awhile, but not enough to own one.

    Shop owners haven't even seen them yet. Many are placing orders on bikes they have yet to see because they are way understocked on the bread & butter bikes (hybrids, etcs), as well as higher-end stuff. C'dale needs to get them to market ASAP or buyers will go with other brands as things are simply not available. Anxious to see them, liked the Euro mtb's before the link was pulled.

    Got a Super Six Evo 2 Sram Red built up today.

    14lbs 3 oz with quite a bit of headset stack and a kinda heavy wheelset, which is exactly what Cannondale claimed it to be, impressive.

    The Sram Red's red accents have been done in Cannondale Green, which is really cool lookin'.

    Does anybody know if the production Scalpel 29er Carbon 1 will use the new Fox Float RP23 Kashima Coated Adaptive Logic shock? The 2012 Niner Jet Carbon RDO and S-Works Epic both will have that shock.
    What is the US market wheel spec. for the Scalpel 29er Carbon 1? I have seen pictures with DT 1550 and Stan's Arch wheels.
