    Cannondale Cujo thread

    Just picked up my 2018 Cujo. Loving the feel of this bike. It's the most comfortable ride I've ever had. I guess it's like they say... when you know, you know.

    Who all is riding a cujo? There wasn't a thread for them so I started one. Would like to see pictures! I need inspiration!

    I bought my Cujo 3 a few months ago. I love this bike. Comfy and fun to ride.

    Thinking about upgrades: forks and tubeless tires.

    Here's a photo from the day I bought it:Cannondale Cujo thread-cujo3.jpg

    Have you found a bash guard that works for the cujo?

    Nope. Before I do that, I've been thinking about swapping the double chainset for a single, and tossing the front derailleur and shifter. Looking for suggestions.

    I recently purchased a new 2018 Cannondale Cujo 1. I have ridden it a few times - some single tracking and some trail riding in Northern NJ. So far so good with the bike. Overall I am very happy with it as it is my first Mountain Bike purchase (I mainly ride a Road Bike). Just getting into Mountain biking. I love the dropper post and the 1X11 gears. Everything is stock on the bike but I did switch the saddle to a WTB Pure. Still learning and enjoying it...hope to get some nicer days soon to continue riding it.

    Now that I recently purchased the Cannondale Cujo 1, what are any of you who are riding newer Cannondale Cujo's feel the best upgrade would be to this bike or what is your first planned upgrade you are thinking about making? I have added the WTB Pure Pro Saddle and a set of Shimano Saint MX80 pedals.

    Does anybody have an idea of max tire size? How much room between the stock tires and the chainstays? I am intrested in running 3.25 or even 3.8 tires.

    Hope

    Well I just upgraded my Cujo 1 with a set of Maxxis DHF/DHRII 2.8 tires and set them up tubeless. Can't wait to give them a test on the trails! No suprises doing the tubeless setup but the Maxxis tires were a bear to fit on these stock Cannondale Rims. Just needed to do a few dry mounts of the tires to get them to stretch some and then let them sit overnight. Hopefully they will stretch some overtime because I don't know how I would get a tube in there in case of a bad flat on the trails. I will carry a DynaPlug and 2oz. of Stan's with me just in case.

    Also, wanted to let you know that I spoke with a Rep. from WTB about the standard WTB Comp. Ranger tires that come on the Cujo. These tires are not Tubeless ready and are only designed for tubes. He also told me that upgrading these tires would be a definite plus. (Of course he was pushing WTB TCS tires for the upgrade).

    I purchased a 2017 Cujo 1 last fall and have made a few updates. Went tubeless with 2.8 Nobby Nics, clipless w XT trail pedals, and new ergon grips. My next upgrade may be the brakes. I'm 6'2" 245 and need more stopping power. I may just start with bigger rotors F/B. I'm experiencing a lot more pedal strike with this bike than my previous and am thinking of ways to bring the BB height up. Considering replacing the fork w 130mm RS Reba and/or possibly trying to get a 29er wheelset and the widest 29er tires i can fit. It's been a lot of fun to ride and a huge step up from my 1998 Kona Lavadome.
