    Cannondale changed spec of Euro Flash 1. Its have a new Cannondale carbon crank

    Cannondale have changed the Euro spec on the Flash Hi Mod 1. They have dropped the FSA crank and put a new one on.

    Its called the Cannondale SI Carbon crank.



    Does anyone know anything about this crank? Is it better or close to the Hollowgram?

    my experience is with it's road bike counterpart. it's nice but not nearly as nice as the hollowgram. I doubt its much of an upgrade compared to what was spec'd on it. Nice how you guys get the mavic SLR's instead of the XTR wheelset for the states. I prefer the US color scheme over this bike however. Red and black always went over better with me then green and black. I couldn't find the weight of the cranksets but I would bet the Cannondale Carbon SI is heavier then the FSA BB30 Kforce

    KA, weren't you getting a new bike or something?
    Myself I am trying to figure out a way in the new year I can convince the wife to let me buy one last MUSA Cdale.....and it would really have to be $2-$3k to make it worthwhile!

    this crank is made by FSA and has been in the canondale line for several years...its not an upgrade. its of course heavier than the hollowgram SL...but its not bad at all.

    The FSA crank looked better imo.

    I,m looking at bikes at the moment. But theres not much out there I like,

    None of the Flashes are made in the USA.
