    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.
    According to this site: 9,765 kg for a medium.

    9.765 gr + 339 gr (XT pedals) + 2 x 44 gr (bottle cage holders) + 40 gr (Leonardi stem) + 66 gr. (Ritchey barends) - 150 gr (SLR wheels) = 10.148 gr of 10,148 kg.

    Didn't know the weight of the speedometer. Total weight, approximately 10,2 kg.

    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 really like the way you style your bikes, not sure what it is but all of your bikes have a bit of a unique look to them. The SLRs look awesome mate. I also thought about putting one of those stems on, I need to get a bike fit first, not sure they'd be good for my back haha!
    and no, I am not missing the other half of my fork....

    I'm riding with innertubes. Today I've tested the bike for the first time on a track. The wheels are really good. I've had a good experience with SLR's on the 26', so the choice for SLR 29'ers was obvious.

    sandyeggo,

    Is that the TeamBeer adapter? I just got a 09 29er 2 frame warrantied for a 13 F29 1 Alloy frame and plan to swap my SS steel to this (racing a LOT more this next year perfect frame for it) and will probably use a tensioner for a week but do what to get an adapter. So how is it holding up?
    Hey Mr Pink

    Sorry it took so long to respond - I just happened to see your post. Yes - it is a TeamBeer adaptor. I really liked it and it held up well. The alloy Flash makes for a great SSer! I think you'll love it.

    Just picked up my warrantied frame from the shop they built it up for free! Have to make a few changes like the seat and the handlebars will be lower. Saved me the hassle of looking for a new race frame for next year.

    Must be the new year blues, the shop who have ordered my bike checked today, and it looks like February before we see bikes in the uk, and that date has changed 3 times! sometimes it sucks being an island!

    Hope you're enjoying the bike, Tommieboy, looks really good, keep us up to date with how you find it..

    Good luck with it and enjoy the bike...

    Revel Outdoors, the shop close to work, it's normal for dates to shift around and then stuff turns up without warning by all accounts, according to CSG nobody will have stock before February, but I don't believe that for a second.

    That was my experience, 3 or 4 different delivery dates, 6 months later than first promised and then randomly turned up 3 weeks earlier than the last delivery date.

    Swore then if I ever bought another Cannondale it would only ever be if they showed stock at warehouse.

    A guy I ride/race with ordered a Flash 29er in November 2011 and it turned up in June 2012! All down to a shortage of bits and supposedly because of issues with the way bikes were made up in several locations, this is supposed to be better now, as complete bikes are assembled in the far east, but I suppose time will tell, you would hope a container ship, travelling half way round the world, would make several stops around Europe, seeing as most of our neighbouring countries have stock...

    Maybe some good news will come along this week, now Christmas is over, and people are heading back to work.

    I was very relaxed about the delivery but the more horror stories I hear the more nervous I am becoming ! I have ordered the flash 3 carbon as opposed to the 2 , maybe this is why is meant to be coming earlier . Fingers crossed . All the waiting is such a drag and I haven't even ridden a 29 er or ever experienced a lefty ! Or carbon for that matter

    Gavinar, let's hope we both get lucky with delivery. As for not riding one, don't worry about it, I've spent the last 4 years on an anthem, and loved it, I dabbled with a carbon hard tail, and it was ok but I never felt quite right.
    A flash carbon 3 was being demo ridden by a mate, and I had a go, Didn't expect anything major, but I was blown away, I had more confidence through a section of trail than ever before, the feeling and grip on the front end was what did it for me, I then spent months thinking do I get or not, and the wife told me to shut up, and go order what I wanted!

    Yep, she is a star, the Anthem was supposed to be just a frame set, but my mates race bike came along at the right time, (xc elite in the uk) so it went into retirement with me!
    Never questions what I buy, just wonders why....like you I was after a flash 3, but went for the 2 as it had all the bits to make the spec what I'm used too.

    I always thought the UK is the center of the world.

    Bike is riding great. Allready 200 km's, bike is not notable steering heavier than the 26'. I think the sharper headset angle is the reason? I'm really satisfied about the riding behavior, never thought a 29'er could ride so 'light'.

    I hope for you on a early delivery!

    Tommieboy, glad to hear all is well with the bike, like you I couldn't believe how well the Flash rides, at that was on a carbon 3, so the 2 must be a bit better due to the spec.

    Early delivery not looking good at the moment, the official line is February 18th, which could see a debut at the final round of the local Winter Series race.

    Happy riding.

    I like the idea, but mine is ordered and I'm a loyal old fool. The stock of upgrade parts I have is steadily growing....Should lose a hundred or so grammes for not much money spent.

    Kcnc rotors (used them for 2 years and love them)
    Just about every bolt will be Titanium...
    Kcnc foam grips (comfy and light)
    Tubeless kit ready to go.
    Xo shifters, but may go 1x10 straight away....

    At some point a set of lighter wheels too, but I weigh in at 80kg so will have to look around and see what suits.

    Enjoy the weekend, and that bike!

    gavinar, I was told the 18th February for all Flash models on Thursday. One of the mob I ride with has an Alloy Flash 2 due in the uk on the 4th February, so you never know some stuff could be on that shipment.

    Oh great , does annoy me when you trust something a salesman says I should know better by now ! I don't understand why uk seem to be last on the list . Even Belgium get on the list above us . Just hope she is worth waiting for . Could have had a 2013 specialized stumpy carbon marathon with me by now .

    I would think the fact Cannondales European base is in Holland helps with stock getting to Europe before us. speaking to the guys in the shop I use, stuff can turn up unexpected, so don't fret too much.

    And it will be worth the wait, I demo rode one in March, convinced myself that although it felt really good, I didn't need one, but changed my mind and ordered one. After all it is the finer 29er......

    What headset are you using for this? Looks tapered and I am looking at the same fork for my current build.

    I am using a Orbit Z reducer which I assume I can just get a new cap for the bottom headset.

    ... and if we just ...

    Gavinar, that sounds good, I was in the shop this evening, and nothing had changed on screen with my order, it still shows 18/2/13, but I've just texted my mate who works there and offered him cake, as reward for finding out more tomorrow.

    Would be nice to think its here and I could be riding it at the weekend, then 2 races on successive weekends.....

    Just told the wife, she looked so pleased!

    Hey Styish , sorry to hear that bud i know it is agonizing waiting for these bikes . The bike was meant to be at southampton monday and the dealer did say he had 2 bikes on that delivery coming to his store mine being one . Not sure if they were both flash 3 but will speak to him later today and find out. Hopefully still on for collection over the weekend although it means i have a 2 hr drive to Bournemouth.
    Hope you have some good news and yours surprises you by turning up unexpectedly . ps any ideas on what pedals to go for ?

    Gavinar, I've been using xt pedals for a while and had no issues at all, but as I want to keep the bike as light as possible I might try some Exustar ones this time round.

    Hope you pick up the bike at the weekend, the 2 hour drive will be well worth it.

    Got a call from the shop today, was hoping for news on delivery of my Flash, but just more news of another delay, now gone back to march/April at the earliest, that's now the 5th date change since I placed the order on November 15th.

    Hopefully someone from CSG in the uk checks this forum, and can get things moving, it's becoming a bit of a joke if I'm honest, the UK has hardly seen a 2013 bike, and by the time they arrive the 2014 models won't be far away.

    Come on CSG Cannondale, sort your act out and serve your customers better.....

    Hopefully someone from CSG in the uk checks this forum, and can get things moving, it's becoming a bit of a joke if I'm honest, the UK has hardly seen a 2013 bike, and by the time they arrive the 2014 models won't be far away.

    Come on CSG Cannondale, sort your act out and serve your customers better.....
    Hey Styish sorry to hear about your delays buddy it does not sound right and all these delays are unnecessary as the bikes are in europe . Mine is on a truck up to me and will be delivered tomorrow . will post pics when it arrives . I know the delivery my bike was in had at least 1 other carbon flash if you want to speak to the store where i bought to check i will happily give you the number. G

    Cheers Gavinar, hope you get yours tomorrow ok, really have no idea who or what to believe now, just got to hope it might just arrive ahead of schedule.

    I did speak to Primera Sport, and they had the same date of February for the one Im waiting for, which I assume will have moved back as well. Been giving the idea of giving up some thought too, but nothing else out there holds as much interest.

    Nice one, you pleased with it?

    I have e mailed CSG to ask what's gone wrong this time, but so far no reply, which isn't really a surprise if I'm honest.

    Is that a Large frame? Looks good in the picture, enjoy the ride.
