    Wow, that's pretty amazing. This is why I like Cannondale.. They're cool... It's pretty out there

    I like the whole integrated drive train, but I'm not sure if I'd want to be riding one of these in 2015?

    Plus the proto pictures show it folding... Eww! I hate folding bikes!

    Looks like it might ride nice, but why a "righty" and not a lefty, maybe for packing space?, and is that a rohloff? hub in the back.

    I think it's really funny re the righty... I remember talking to a friend awhile back saying what Cannondale was going to do when the patent for the lefty expired... I was like "Hey, they'll make a righty" ...

    Half of me wonders if it's a joke...

    lol, yeah, I thought it was because the rear wheel folds up to the right as well, but them I saw that the bike folds around the frame instead of the way I was thinking. I like the idea of the lefty, but why aren't they making them in long travel versions?? ahh well.

    i know, why would they release anything if its for 2015? lame... looks cool though, and the rear is not a rohloff, sram... but basically the same deal. and righty is because the rear is a righty. bmw has been doing this on there motorcycles for awhile.

    This is why I like Cannondale ...

    Going throug a lot just make a concept bike. When reading the article on the Cannondale Community you'll see a lot of work and dedication went into producing this bike. I can't see it being a production model soon, yet they went ahead to see what could be done.

    I really like the singe sided drivetrain concept, seen the proto on the Prophet frame? I'll bet we might see something similar in production over the coming years.
