    I have the Jekyll 4. Different forks I think and lower spec but the 3 was not worth the extra in my opinion. Although slightly on the heavy side it doesnt feel like a heavy bike when riding, up hill shows it a little, twin shock really is spot on, I dont have a problem changing from one mode to the other although I have quite big hands. In elevate it pedals sweet, much better than my friends specialized on pro pedal. The review above says that one downside is you need a special pump for the shock but this comes with the bike anyway. Creak from the frame is present in my Jekyll and also my SL1 so maybe a cannondale thing. Headset hasn't come loose yet but often does on the SL1 so I am expecting it. I bought the Jekyll with the idea that I would ride it, enjoy it and as things wear replace with lighter parts. Maybe change the wheels and crank and basically get closer to the carbons spec but with a trusty alloy frame. Not sure on the weight difference between the carbon frame and the alloy but dont suppose its a massive amount?


    100 grams of carbon weighs the same as a hundred grams of alloy.
