The past few months my GF and I spend more and more time traning to enhance our technical XC riding skills. This involves cornering, jumps, drops, bunny hops, clearing root sections and logs, wheelies, manuals etc. Anything you can encounter on epic trails.
We're looking for a fun bike we can use for this sort of training so we can save our Prophet/Rush from crashes. The Cannondale Chase looks like a fun bike and seems build to withstand some abuse. The Geometry of a size L looks comparable to my Prophet SL with respect to angles and top tube lenght.
What I would like to know is if the Chace is just for street/dirt riding or that it can also be used for short trails and some rough XC riding like we do. Seatpost in upper position and maybe a somewhat longer stem should do the trick.
My choice would be the Chase 4, and maybe convert it to a 1x9 geared version as I have a mech, shifters and rear wheel available. Would that be possible?
