    It's not for me but it's all about a seat for every...well you know. I like the idea that cannondale is coming out with some new products. I hope for a major turn around for them! In a land of bikes from overseas its great to finally see some fresh home grown,lets keep it coming and maybe we'll have ourselves a winner!

    I would like to see some proper fenders on it instead of those minimilist designs and a rear rack to make it a functional commuter. Anything that gets posteriors on bikes and out of cars is good by me.

    What frame are they using for that bike? The website does not mention it.

    I like the design and the innovation.

    I think it's super-cool... not my style but I do really like it.

    I like the lines of the Soulville, but the Cdale looks ...I dunno, grittier ?

    It's a Cannondale Bad Boy frame with integrated cable routing, giving it a a very clean look. I would like to see this thing build up as a proper XC rig but keeping the finish with grey and dull-silver components.

    I like the matching Brooks grips (Edit plus that Cdale stem light thing)
    MSRP guesses?

    I like it. Only part I don't much care for is the chain guard. It doesn't seemto match the rest of the bike's retro theme.

    The chainguard looks just like the interior of their stores. That's why it looks that way I would guess. They could roll that bike into one of the retail stores I have been in and it would fit right in.

    In addition, you would have to include a chainguard on a bike that is based off a store that sells mostly very, very, very expensive jeans.

    Looks good. I wouldn't ride it, but then I don't use my bike for a fashionable city commute. I like the mudguards, the chainguard is a little not-quite-there, but it isn't terrible. I think they could have done with giving it riser bars / stem. Paint job is nice.

    It needs US army insignia on it! Where do I get one of those wrap around things for the frame (below seat)?
    PS Get my Bad Boy Ultra tomorrow.
