First, I had my first race on the new Optimo frame yesterday. I've had the rig for a couple of weeks, so I was already happy with just how smooth the ride was, but racing it was simply a pleasure. What a killer bike, so smooth.
Which brings me to this. Another friend of mine just started racing an f2000 this year after racing most of last season on a carbon fiber Trek Fuel. He claims that he finds the ride on the cdale to be no less smooth than the Fuel. Kind of mirrors my experience since, though I came from another Al hardtail, I have been amazed at how forgiving the rear is on the Optimo frame. So, and maybe James from Cannondale can answer this, just how much play do those snakey seatstays provide? Is riding an Optimo comaparable to riding a short travel softail? Just curious.
