    The Cannondale I Want To See in 2013

    I'd like to see them build a 140mm travel, all carbon, super Rize. Use the Scalpel 29'er rear suspension, make it in 650b, and weighing no more than 21lbs.

    No need to wait for 2013, that's already possible, you just have to build it yourself.

    What's wrong with the stock geometry? And your discs are coming, but $2000 price points aren't.

    Anyway what mountain bike would you most like them to do next? I still think a SuperRize 140mm travel bike would be the logical gap filler.

    You can make this out of ANY Flash, right? SO your wish was granted in 2010...unless you want adjustable chain tension from the factory.

    140mm FS 29er, with a 140 29er Lefty. In aluminum, screw plastic bikes.

    Haven't bought a Cannondale in years, this is why.
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    Gold? Not stiff enough to make bikes of...

    I guess the Scalpel 29'er rear suspension design is a way to get a 130-140 cm travel bike down to the weight I'd want to see, which is 9kg/20lbs. I can't see how you could do that with "Jekyll" technology.

    They need to build this thing, Please Mr. Denk. And please leave enough room in those stays for my beloved 650b Racing Ralph. Given the modular nature of the Scalpel 29'er rear suspension maybe a super Rize bike could be offered in 26" AND 650b flavors.

    But it needs a certain type of frame to work correctly. I tried it with a regular Flash this year and it didn't cut the mustard.

    No more 'dales for me until they bring out a dedicated carbon single speed frame.

    "Needs" might be a bit off, the White Eno Eccentric works great for any frame.

    i cant wait to try out the scalpel with the 650b wheels... i got my 29er flash up and running again and loved how it rolled over everything. the scalpel could prove to be the weapon of choice! because im a bike whore, i would have bought the ninja black 29er scalpel without riding it as i think its one of the sexiest bikes ive seen... but the production colours that are floating on the net just arent doing it for me...

    back on topic... im surprised that cdale didnt do a quick redesign of the flash 29er carbon to align some of the technologies between it and the scalpel. i think we'll see a continued evolution of the current models... the only "in between" model right now is the rz120 which sounds like its being replaced by this short travel jekyll i read about.

    would love to see a hydraulic lockout on the rear shock of my scalpel that is controlled by the same lockout of the lefty...

    That's in the works. Rock Shox sponsored athletes are using a Xloc equiped rear shocks. Current prototypes use a separate Xloc lever for the front and rear but, logically, a single lever locking both should be easily done and very logical to me.

    The Flash will probably eventually get PF30 and the same dropout style as the new 29er Scalpel but redoing the molds and the whol production and everything just for that, they will probably just do it once they change other features of the frame as well.

    I don't think the Scalpel 80 really needs a locking rear shock. Not saying you couldn't see ANY benefit using one, just that set to a proper sag the rear suspension seems pretty progressive and the only time you can bottom it is if you air it out or hit something unexpected like a large rock. I think of the Scalpel as the ultimate long travel, soft tail. It retains all the positive traits of your typical XCO racing hardtail with just that little bit of plush added in. Watching them raced on Freecaster that seems how they're used, the CFR guys just go a little harder into rock gardens and root sections when they're riding Scalpels.

    A 650'd Scalpel 80 just makes it that much more efficient and as others have noted the extra clearance with the higher bb is nice.

    Now a super Rize with Scalpel 29'er type rear suspension would be perfect for a locking rear shock. The 130-140mm travel bike is what I'd like to be riding, I'm just not willing to give up more than a miniscule amount of the efficiency of my race bike even though I don't race. I don't want a Spark LT, I don't want a FSR Swork-Stumpy. Only Cannondale can make this bike at 9kg./20lbs. One last suggestion for Herr Denk...make S and the M in 26" , but make L's and XL's in 650b.

    Yeah and with a 300cc two-stroke, two Lefties ('cept one would be a Rightie), and V-brakes-3sets! And all wheel drive of course.
