    Cannondale Bad Boy White 2009

    Hi, does anyone have any news on the above bike? I have read also that some fenders and extra bits will be available for bad boy.

    That bike says, 'Have that you bast*rds!' Beautiful. Looks like the US version for the Bad Boy Lefty 8. Cannot wait to see the Euro Ultra.

    That is a Euro model... Very sweet! Although personally, I'd prefer a full rigid version, suspension doesn't make sense on commuting bikes IMO. Are the Hooligans still in the line?

    I was riding a mates 08 version of that, I was half tempted to buy one but I don’t think I would have a purpose for it, the good new is that it finally persuaded me to order a Shimano Alfine 8 speed hub.

    Another pic...

    Looks really good, not convinced by the lefty as I am a bit of a traditionalist.

    Odd distinction, but isnt that more of a one legged headshock?
    A left being something more than 80mm travel?

    The chain guard ruins it. Beautiful bike otherwise.

    I have no idea why they wont bring the rigid lefty to the US. I want one so bad and dream of the day I can run non-machined deep-v rims with a brake.

    I agree, the chain guard kills the look. I don't see any purpose to own one for me as well. I don't commute to work on bike. Although, I like it a lot.

    It would probably look better without it but the chain guard makes it the perfect bike to go to a wedding with a white suit!

    Seriously, I wouldn't have to worry about rolling my pant's cuffs with that, a true commuting and city bike. Go to Amsterdam or Copenhagen and you'll see most bikes have chain guards, it makes sense, it's not a trail bike, it's a bike you use to go to work, go to the bar, go to a friend's place, go out for dinner... You don't ride that in cycling clothes. It would be nice to offer nice, clean looking fenders though, because that white suit is easily ruined when it rains or snows!

    But if you don't want the guard, I'm sure it can easily be taken off anyway.

    Is that the first Bad Boy that's not matte black?

    Beautiful. Fenders and Mary bars and I would call it perfect for commuting.

    Forget about the chain guard, what about the guy wearing Crocs in the second photo...

    He deserves a bullet.

    I hope it comes in more than one color. Looks tight, but I prefer the old black matte finish. I was too late to get one for the 2008 model run, so here is to hoping they making them in other colors other than white. The chain guard is not the best looking chain guard I have ever seen. I will be getting one as soon as they come out though.

    I would say that white would be okay in matt but only just. A bad boy is matt black and should always be.

    But you can't call it a Good Boy either, those are polished aluminium...

    Perhaps the white version could be called the 'NancyBoy'. I will be ripping off the chain guard as soon as I get it (If the this is the same as the U.S. version.)

    The BBQ will be available in the solo edition but only as a single speed.

    I am from Montreal but still, if someone needs suspension for the ugly Montreal streets, they would need a DH bike to handle a proper XC trail... I practice picking good lines and bunny hops on my way to work.

    The 2009 bad boys are the same as the 2008. I would hardly qualify new tires, seat, front mech as a new model. What a copout on the part of Cannondale.

    You expect bike companies to redesign every models every year? Seriously, only Fisher almost does that but that's because they have so many design flaws on most designs they kind of have no choice...

    The Taurines are too and how long did the old Scalpel lived relatively unchanged? I don't see what they could change on the Bad Boys to improve them without bumping the prices too much (I think commuters should be priced low relatively to dedicated mountain bikes)... Oh yeah I know what they could improve: bring the European range in North America!

    So my local bike store talked to their cannondale rep. The bad boy will still be matte black and will essentially be the same as the 2008 model.

    New seat, new seat post, new front mech, new tyres, new wheel set, all minor changes.
