    Hummm.

    Damn, now I want one! If it really is 24 pounds when the production version is released, my Cake might be for sale...

    I know how you feel, though I will keep my gemini 04 2000. Still want one though!!!

    The weight will be accurate, its a UK website and they are truthfull in their tests.

    It's not that I don't trust the testers, it's more that the bikes they tried might be non-production versions so the weights might vary a bit when the bikes hit the shops showrooms...

    But I'll keep my current bike for a while, my Cake is very nice but there were a few "new model bugs" so next time, I'm buying a bike that's been around for at least a few months and no more Trek-Fisher-Etc... I haven't been impressed with Trek's craftmanship and build quality, compared with Cannondale's, they should be ashamed...

    I did like how the rear derailleur cable went through the rear triangle, i hope that stays for production. I'm still wanting to see this endurance bike though, but it's going to have to be great for me not to buy a prophet.

    There will be a few models, but the "I-want-it-BAD" model with the Carbon Lefty Max with SPV, CrossMax wheels and other nice parts wont be cheap I expect.

    Those are european spec bikes, but it is 100% accurate to how they will be in production. There is going to be a bunch of models so I am sure you'll find one in your price range.

    Check out Hcor.net

    There's a story on http://www.Hcor.net about Aaron Chase and Don Hampton going to Europe for a Cannondale media event announcing the release of those bikes. Chase mentioned the weight as 27.5 lbs.

    24lbs No way

    I just read an article about the prophet and the target weight when the bike is released is 27lbs.

    i agree with ronny it should probly be around 27lbs,
    the scalpel teem is 23
    3000 is 24
    2000 is 25
    if the new prophit is 24lbs then the new marathon should be lighter again ,so is the new scalpels going to 20lbs?
    just curious :

    If you wanna be a weight wennie about it, you can shave a pound or two off the scalpel team, by loosing the lefty and getting a headshok (ouch)...
    but seriously, a sub20 scalpel would be too sweet... not that I can affort it, or that I would buy it even if I had the money... (at least not till I start standing on some podiums... very frecuently)

    That's what any of their high end 2004 bikes cost... so I'm just guessing the price will runaround those numbers, maybe even more than 5k USD

    When is Crackanfale gonna come up with an original bike design that doesn't suck? That bike looks like a Ventana Pantera.

    Dude, that is one of the lamest things I have ever heard. If you anything about bikes you would know that cdale has been using that frame style for over 10 years now. Ever hear of a killer V? If anything I would say Ventana took some influence from Cannondale......Besides have you even ridden one of these new bikes, because if not how do you have any clue if it sucks or not?

    Also for 2005?

    I found this "drawing" of what looks like a possible Cannondale marathon or endurance racing bike on a German website where folks were also talking about the Prophet. From what I could understand, the guy that first posted it was sort of ambivalent as to whether or not it was a fake mock up or not, but it certainly looked to be of the same style as the mock up of the Prophet, which we have seen in the flesh, which was also posted there. Any thoughts? Here's the link, maybe one of you speaks German.

    That's a pretty mockup, but I wwas trying to trace the path of travel on that shock/swingarm combo and my calculations just say "wrongo".

    Some people have too much time on their hands and a copy of Photoshop...

    I should clarify...

    The overall direction of the above design seems plausible...a natural extension of the Scalpel obviously.

    But given the big error in the rear suspension rendering, I just thought it should be taken with a grain of salt.
