    Cannondale does some stupid mount design that's proprietary. Not sure if it's a great idea but just using a 20mm post mount adapter would "work" but not sure if it would be strong enough. Best bet would be to contact a Cannondale dealer to see if they make a 180mm version adapter for the rear.

    I thought about it myself, but I can already lock the back tire and am considering better brakes so 180 is going to be too much in the rear at that point for me.

    Nice find, can't find any of that stuff here in the US easily. That's exactly what we all would need to go 180 on the rear!

    Unless your being a weight weenie or after the "being factor" there is 0 reason to go XTR unless going XTR race which has a different lever feel.

    If you want powerful brakes just get shimano zee. Right in the middle on cost, more power and smoother modulation compared to XT.

    The only people that really spend money on those rotors are people that ride downhill and such that are exceptionally hard on the brakes. Standard shimano XT ice tech rotors are enough for 99% of riders.

    I just ordered slx m7000 and XT ice tech rotors myself. I'm going to give them a shot as I need more power in the front mainly I just realized. Plus bike has me riding more challenging and fun stuff. But difference between slx and XT for performance (excluding rotors, XT ice tech is always better) is the same. Saved $30 which paid for my new anodized orange seat post clamp.

    If i somehow don't feel those are enough I'll put them on my fat bike when I can afford a set of Zees.

    Hey guys,

    Anyone had issues with a slow air leak from the fork? Last checked it about 2 months ago, went to ride today and was at 50psi in the lefty.

    I have finally decided to change main pivot bearings on my carbon frame and to my big surprise they were also in size 6802-2RS So it seems that all the suspension bearings are the same. However the kits Cannondale sells, propose different size for the main pivot bearings Bearing Kit PIVOT, HABIT

    Also very disappointed with Enduro bearings, seems their reliability is no better or worse if compared to the ones Cannondale supplies with the bike!

    I replaced the suspension bearings on my bad habit (same bearings as habit) with Enduro bearings. Creaks have not returned.

    Hello,
    I am building my Habit Carbon and am looking for some help on routing the Reverb dropper post lines. Can someone please share a detailed picture of how the line routes from the dropper post down the inside of the rame, then where does it come out? And finally how does it route to the handle bars???

    Appreciate your support

    I'm planning to get a Habit as well within the next couple of months, so I am curious as well with regards to routing the dropper cable to the left - would the fork bumper damage the entry plug like in the case of Aleksandrik?

    Good pictures. Thanks. How about from the seat post tube? Does the cable come from the post internally down to the bottom pedal cage? Or how where does the cable turn from seat tube to down tube?
    Thank you

    If bike does not have rear shock lockout cable, I definitely would recommend to use the hole on the right for the dropper routing.

    Not only the plug will be OK, but also dropper cable will have a smoother loop from the frame to handlebar.

    It just goes down! I think it is something like this in my Carbon frame. BB shell also was different from classic Cannondale's PF30, it had some sort of pipe insert which prevents contact between shaft of the cranks and dropper routing.

    P.S. Actually, now I just ride a rigid seat post with 20 mm offset. Bike is very capable even without a dropper! Also reliability is so much better!

    No lefty? Oh my...

    By the way, I seem to recall some of the guys here mentioning that the habit can fit 2.6" tires? Is this true?

    Also, does anyone follow Stan's "Wide Right" recommendations for each rim in terms of tire width?

    Probably we will see Habit 1 and 2 with Carbon Lefty. Also I can see the front black habit with Sram GX Eagle.

    Yes I fitted my Habit SE with 2.6 Schwalbe Rocket Ron front and rear on Stan's NoTubes Flow MK3 (29mm inner width) wheelset. There's 4 to 5mm* space between the seat stays and the tire on both sides. * edited (measured this morning)

    Yeah, I had a feeling they would do that for the lefty forks. This would allow potential buyers with smaller budgets get a Habit, albeit without a Lefty.
    Thanks for confirming regarding the 2.6" tires, appreciate it!
