    I keep thinking I want to go back to full suspension, but every time I ride one, I just want to be back on my hardtail.

    Weighed in at 25lbs dead even. This is a large frame with heavy wheels, tires and tubes. The low mount/bottom pull derailleur is close to the Bronson tire. I would like to run a little less aggressive tire for mid summer use, so there will be a bit more clearance then.

    I really look forward to this summer!

    It's 21.57lbs to be exact on my digital scale with XTR pedals, water bottle cage. Note that the stock Racing Ralphs were the 2011 version, switched out to the new 2012 version (127tpi, 29x2.25) saved nearly 80g a tire in my case. The front tire I'm using Rocket Ron which's about the same weight as the new Ralph.

    What's the weight difference between the original rims and the enves?

    BIKE REALLY LOOKS "AWESOME"!!!!

    How do you like the ride?
    The more info you can provide the better... Thanks

    Thanks for the kind words. I weighted the stock DT Swiss wheels at 1840g (w/ tubeless valves, center lock rotor adapter for the rear), and 1520g for the Enve (w/ tubeless valves, gorilla tapes, 6 ti rotor bolts). I like the wheels a lot, got that snappy feel of 26" wheels but roll faster. They are the best upgrade for the bike imo, as for a 29er, light weight / stiff wheels really shine. With the lighter wheels I hardly need to touch the 36t cog except on some steeper climbs (17%+). The only con I can think of is the price... But if you can swallow the price and ride a lot, it's a great upgrade no doubt.

    If you haven't ridden the bike yet, check out the latest issue of Mountain Bike Action. They got a decent review on the Scalpel 29er and everything they mentioned are pretty right on the spot. The bike climbs very well, corners stable even at high speed.

    Ordered my first mountain bike tonight. Its on back order though so wont have it for atleast 2 weeks according to what my LBS told me tonight. I went with a Trail SL4 29ER. Will post pics of it soon as I receive it. First upgrade will be a set of straitline amp pedals and from there i'll upgrade as stuff wears out/breaks.

    Been waiting for a small 29er SL4 to come in and it finally did.... but the small was too small! Waited all this time and I could have been riding. lol

    I did pick up a 29er SL2 instead!











    Had the shop put on my wellgo pedals and I took off the reflectors after the photo's.

    So for anyone waiting on the small's they are now shipping!

    I just saw this bike at REI and it looks so much better in real life. I ordered mine two weeks ago and wont be available till end of April early May. Long wait.

    I mtb few years back (Cannondale scalpel). Then took up road biking which I'm currently doing. My buds wanted to cross train and they got Flash 29ers, so I ended getting back into it.

    Yeah brakes are on my list as well. So far the stockers have been mostly ok. But I would like a bit better for steep hills.

    My new and first 29er! Only upgrade so far is a set of odi rogue grips but plan to change a few more things on it soon to make it more comfortable of a ride for me. Want to put a shorter stem on it as right now i have to lean more foward then i'd like when I'm riding and its uncomfortable to me and feet wont stay on the pedals that are on it now.

    I have the SL4 from 11. In sexy silver!

    I've upgraded to sunringle pedals. Peaty Grips, just ordered a set of BB7's with blue housing and speed dial levers. Also converted to 1x8. With a 32t SS chainring on the front, with dual bash. I'm sure I'll put up another picture once I get the new brakes on with the new housing.

    Awesome! It's funny, I've recently been thinking of doing the exact mod to my old CAAD 5 frame. Glad to see it might actually work out!

    first mountain bike. Flash 1 alloy 29er. I love this bike! I changed the seat to a specialized 22305. the stock seat sucked! I am undecided on what to do about the pedals.

    Finally I also got my Flash 29. It's not the carbon 2 model I ordered back in October '11 because Cannondale can't deliver before before the race season starts this month. So I took a Flash 3 and customized it the way I like. Finally the handlebar and triggers will get switched to an Easton XC 70 bar with the new Sram X0 gripshift when they will be available. I'm totally satisfied with this bike. It's awesome. Seem's like this bike was developed for my body and riding style. I've I don't finish on podium this year this must be my fault.

    Here is my Flash 29er Ultimate on the day it was built up.. I changed the Cannondale grips to Oury grips but that is it.. The Enve Carbon wheels and SRAM XX gruppo are amazing! Love the bike and look forward to a year of racing it!

    Don't sweat the small stuff. We can't all afford 5k for a bike! Here's a link to a pic of my Trail SL4 29er from it's second ride!

    Post a pic of your Cannondale 29er

    Things have changed since the pick. I now have BB7 brakes with blue cable housing. And currently a 1x8 setup, will be converted to SS once the conversion kit shows up! I love it and can easily out ride my brother in law and his 3k bike!

    Hey rz....what's your build spec on that flash? I've got an alloy Flash 1 also... (I believe that's what yours is?), and, it's in serious need of a diet.

    -stans arch (1) crest (1)
    - FSA CF Bars
    -Thompson masterpiece seat post
    - specialized Phenom Ti edition saddle
    - tubeless roro & a tubeless beaver

    That's the list, if I could justify new pedals I'd replace te heavy'ish XT's but I'm very happy with the bike as is.

    2012 Scalpel 29er Alloy 4

    Just picked up my 2012 Scalpel 29er Alloy 4 a few days ago and couldn't wait to ride it. So much so that I didn't think twice about the slippery muddy trails. I braked after a jump and the bike slid out from under me causing me to fall into a branch that impaled my arm and led to seven stitches. The worst part is that they hurt when riding but that doesn't stop me!

    Got an amazing deal from Diamond Cycle in Montclair, NJ. They are an awesome knowledgeable and friendly group and I highly recommend them if you live in the Northern NJ.

    Huge shout out to Craig, Lou, and Emo!

    Here is my 2013 F29er 2.......

    I am loving the new lefty, seems to be much better than my old rockhopper with a Reba air fork......





    and the Thudbuster seat post I have not installed yet.....




    As this bike is breaking in, it is feeling better and better.

    Tommieboy, that is one hell of a Christmas present! Had the same model on order since November, but sadly the UK won't see any of the 2013 Flash"s until February at the earliest. The expected date has changed 4 times now and I can't wait, been itching to own one since a demo ride earlier in the year.

    Good luck with it and enjoy the bike...

    Thx!

    Mine was also ordered in november (I live in Belgium). And the dealer told me the delivery date has gonna be march 2013. But past week, the dealer called me to say the bike has arrived. Maybe the UK can also recieve some unexpected deliveries? I'll hope it for you!


    Did some little changes.

    I've shortened the handlebar with 1 centimeter on each side and put a pair of barends on it. Also mounted a Cannondale IQ 300 wireless speedometer. Damn, that was precision work with that upside down Lefty fork. I've had to grind off some material from the protection guard to let the sensor fit, to avoid he will be touching the spokes.

    Now is the bike ready to roll! Only the weather is not cooperating

    I hope you get some clear weather so you can get out on your bike, I have a few parts ready to go on mine when it arrives, but nothing like your upgrades! Just rotors, tubeless kit, titanium bolts and rotor chainrings at the moment. New wheels will come in time, maybe with carbon rims, if I can save the cash!

    Any idea of the weight of the bike when you got it? Mine wll be a touch heavier as its a large, but not by much.

    Happy riding.
