    What's wrong with a saddle bag? I still carry a spare tube and hand pump in my jersey pockets. In socal Where I ride I don't need a camel back. Two bottles is plenty plus theres available water.

    So what do you carry in there that you couldn't in your jersey?

    I'm teasing you... with the super light parts and the build you have, I just thought it was funny to see a heavy saddle bag. Kind of like seeing a Porsche 911 GT2 with a trailer. But seriously, very nice bike!

    No worries I figured as much. One tube a few tools and stuff. Thanks for the kind words on the build.
    I couldn't come to putting anything on the back of my 996.

    It sure does. Very nice to not need a lockring-wrench in the woods and no chance to break the trackthread.

    But very useless if you dont ride fixed.

    Hey guys, quick question for you all. I have the chance to buy a new (left over) single speed Caffeine 29er at a pretty good price. One thing I am curious about, can these bikes be outfitted with a derailleur hanger on the rear to make it a multi speed bike? Thanks.

    The bike was 23lbs and 10oz (23.63 lbs, 10,283g) with pedals and tubes stock. With my changes the bike is now 23.06 lbs w/o tubes, (added sealant), put on a bottle cage and a wireless computer. Coming is an X.0 Rear der, which will drop about 30g, and I am in the market for a BB30 26-39 crank, This Afterburner is a porker and I don't need a triple. I am going to wait for the X.0 because the price of XX is absurd. Any suggestions that are cheaper than XX? I know I also have to cut down the brake cables, please don't remind me. I have the Hope kit on order.

    Since the pictures were taken the bike lost another 39g when I swapped to a Specialized Phenom 143 (231.8g) saddle from the Fizik Aliante XM MG (271.0g)

    I don't think so. You could, however, put an Alfine or Rohloff on it

    Update:

    In an unexpected turn of events I came across a deal I couldn't pass up on a set of Hollowgram Si SL's. Here they are on the bike, dropped a little less than 300g from the FSA Afterburner. The Race Face Turbines shift a lot quicker and a lot more crisp than I thought they would. I anyone reading is interested in a set, don't hesitate to get them, it's a great set up. Only gripe with them is that they are heavy.

    Don't worry Eliflap, no need to criticize the triple, the XX spider should be in either tomorrow or Monday and rings on Wednesday!

    Only other thing on my agenda is a new set of carbon bars. I cut 10mm off each side to see how the bike feels before I buy new bars. I think I will probably go with something like the Salsa Pro Moto Carbon. I know the bar isnt weight weenies best friend, but you can't beat the sweep of the Salsa bars.

    Here is my 2009 Caffeine 2 after plowing the front end through a muddy right hand sweeper at way too high of speed. This happened yesterday, time for a new front wheel.

    anyone have pics of the TRAIL SL 29 3 ?
    I can get a deal on one, but we don't have one in the shop so I need a little push to order one.



    thanks

    I'm a first time Cannondale owner after many years aboard GT's. This is my new 2011 Cannondale SL4 29er. Went for a 2x9 setup and changed out a few things right out of the box such as:
    -Avid Elixer R brakes with 7" rotors
    -Race Face Evolve XC cranks
    -Sram X9 derailleurs and shifters
    -Sram PG980 9 speed cassette
    -Ergon cork grips
    -WTB Pure V seat
    -Eggbeater pedals

    I also flipped the stem over to get more suitable positioning on the bike. I like a bit of an upright ride but stock it was super upright. The bars are also really wide and will take a bit getting use to. I'm also already planning on some better tires soon and running ghetto tubeless.

    Is the 2008 Cannondale 29er 3 SS mtb a dedicated SS bike or can it be fitted with a rear derailleur?

    I almost bought the same bike a few days ago. What are your first impressions? Any short review such as pro's and cons of the bike?

    Can't really comment much on the bike in its stock form as I swapped a few things out right away. I do like the geometry but found that I had to flip the stem for proper fit. The Kenda SB8's roll fast but are lacking in the traction department on intermediate surfaces such as sand (which I ride alot of). The RST fork is clunky to me and its being replaced very soon with a Recon SoloAir. The bars are super wide but I got use to them quickly. You can always cut them down too.

    I have a cannondale sl4 29er and i want to put hydrolic disc brakes on it. i found the hayes stroker ryde and trail for a good price. the ryde is a little cheaper but it comes with rotors... so my question is do the stock rotors on the sl4 work with the trails or should i get the rydes because of rotor compatibility.

    Remade Flash '29er 1

    Chainsuck and ghost shifting eventually led to a complete drivetrain replacement, with new cassette, front and rear Ds, crank and chain. Got that OPI stem steerer too.

    How do you all like that RST Deuce that is on the Trail SL 29ers? I'm getting the 2012 SL4 and I'm curious what people think of that fork.

    I wish I could be more help to you, but I don't have anything to compare it to. This is my first decent mtb I've owned (owned a Schwinn Criss Cross in college).
    That being said, I do like the ability to lock out and there are settings in between full lockout and softest ride.

    I'm comparing the deuce to a walmart fork so really it's like night and day to me. BUT after a month on this bike I can tell the fork will be upgraded at some point to a 100mm air fork. Simply for the fact that it's kinda noisy. Plus slightly more travel wouldn't be bad. I ride hard. Other than the noise, which I don't really notice anymore, it seems to be just fine.

    I was commenting on someones post, who did upgrade theirs. Mine isn't upgraded yet, though I too would like to do some upgrading over the winter. I don't know any specs on the bike and can't find a list of specs online anywhere. Someday I'll have to stop buy and get the specs from the LBS where I purchased it. I'm pretty sure it's a 9mm hub, but don't quote me on that. I know it's not 20, and doubtful it's 15. My biggest problem is gonna be finding a fork that has a 1.5 steerer that's not tapered. I don't want to mess around with headset adapters and a new stem if I can avoid it.

    Anyone know what the SL frames are rated for? Comes with a 80mm fork, but I'd like to get a 120, or 100 at least!

    I've got so much to learn. I was not aware you could convert to an external BB. I assume thats what the ext is short for? What size BB is it? I'm 99% sure the SL4 has the exact same frame.

    Yes, ext was short for external BB. I got the crank/BB from JensonUSA. It fits both 68/73 shells and comes with the shims (if needed). But be careful, the one I purchased was for a 10speed which is a thinner chain than 9spd (I didn't care bc I was putting a SS chainring and chain on).... and the SL4 is not exactly the same frame bc my bike has a larger shell to fit an EBB (which holds the ext BB) to tighten the chain.

    Hopefully I didnt confuse you...

    How much difference does the Niner fork make? I've been thinking of swapping the stock Fatty fork for a Niner fork on my SL3.

    Best purchase/most noticeable improvement (and it has only been on the bike for a week) I've done to the bike...and I have changed everything. What I really liked about their fork is that it has a tapered steerer as an option...at least you can still retain the 1 1/2" at the crown.

    2011 Flash 29er 1 Alloy

    Stock setup other than Crank Bros pedals and Ergon grips. Will be upgrading my wheelset this year once I decide on what I want to go with. Would love some feeback about hubs. Currently considering Industry Nine hubs and Stan's Arch 29er rims, but I'm open for suggestions on other options. I'm 6'2" and 185 lbs. Ride mostly cross-country single-track in Utah and Idaho.

    I would love to own a 29er bit since I'm in Illinois there aren't many places to ride where the terrain would favor such a set up. My Bad Boy with 700mm XC tires does great on the trails here and the gearing is a better set up for flat rolling terrain, I think. Swapping to 26 inch tires can help on the rougher trails too. Having said that I still desire a 29er. Someone talk some sense into me that it would be overkill. I feel like I'm going to have a garage full of bikes before too long.

    29 is better on rough stuff as far as I'm concerned. If you have 700c and the bike does well, why spend the $$? I switched from a 20 year old Cannondale with 26" wheels to the 5 year old Caffeine(above...came WITH the stuff mentioned plus shoes, a helmet, and mini pump). Net after sale of my old Cannondale: $600.

    Tim, what's your experience in the ride differences on your 29er vs your bad boy with the 700x38 tires? I know the suspension travel is a huge difference, but in terms of speed and ride quality what is your take?

    That is a true apples/oranges comparison. I love both bikes, and really the only downside to the flash so far is getting used to all the features of it. My bad boy is so stripped down that this bike is taking some getting used to.

    As far as terrain, i mostly stuck to hike and bike type trails on the bad boy, the flash is overkill for that. I have been taking the flash out to my local trails and riding stuff that I would not have considered for the bad boy. Big drops, high speed, pump track, etc..

    One this I am surprised by is how nimble the flash is. I am able to manual with it similar to my bmx bike which i would not have thought was possible. It rolls over stuff like a monster truck, but doesn't handle like a monster truck.

    Thats good to hear as I was under the impression that 29ers were at a a disadvantage when it comes to tight maneuvers. I appreciate everyones feed back. I think I'll stick with my current stable of bikes for now.

    Tight woods trails here. No problem at all switching from 26 to 29. Will put up a video to show how tight in a few days. Those out west don't know what tight is

    Good looking bike! I'm just wondered whether the Fatty fork can fit in my 2010 F1 frame and become 69er
