    I still love my 2007 Bad Boy (made in USA), which has more conventional frame. Best looking ever! IMO

    This is the USA site, the Rohloff I believe was a European offering only. The Alfine IGH is also new to the USA market I think.

    The rigid solo is the new angular design, Other than that, varying degrees of minor component changes, brakes, cranks, etc go up in spec as you move thru the model range.

    Here's my second hand 2010 Bad Boy 8 M Size :













    As a bike commuter you'll notice the equipment : Schwalbe Marathon Plus, AirZound 2, 2xCree P3 and a 9 leds Safety Strobe Light.

    It's been a month and a half since I'm commuting with my boy, five times per week, 25 miles a day of pure pleasure.

    Yet I'm not that happy with these cannondale's pedals, I really need some good flats because I've almost no grip with certain type of shoes and it could be very annoying, especially at 7 in the morning .

    Oh dear, yes dump those octopus pedals ASAP. I put Xpedo Curves on mine, they complement the bike well, but if you have a preferred flat pedal it'll do. Metal mtb flats with pins all the way IMO.

    i was often wondering if those 9er forks would work. Cool!
    are they the same hight as the standard forks?

    I think I will be going with Formula brakes next as the Avids are not really my thing.
    Still waiting on my wheels for over a month now as they are being rebuilt with black nipples. BTW if you are using road wheels on Stan's make sure to double up the tape or it will blow out. I had both wheels blow out through the rim tape already. Fricken headache to get the tires off, so do it right the first time ;-)

    Here's my 2009 BBU i picked up brand new in May this year. As much as I love I have to sell it now.

    When the wife finds out that I just bought a new Mukluk 2 (or another stupid bike in her eyes) she is going to have a fit. So I'll tell her the Cannondale is for sale.

    So far no bites on craigslist yet so ebay may be next.

    It is a classic and was lucky to find it new at a bike shop where it sat for a couple years. I just changed the fork oil to a thicker wt and what a difference it made.

    I look like about 1" taller then the stock fatty rigid forks I had.

    Hi all!

    So I thinking of buying my first bike. My first option was a 2010 Giant XTC in white, but finding them has been tough. So I am expanding my options. I came across this thread with the BB and was interested. Aesthetics, I know should not be so important, but for some reason they are for me. Anyways, how well do these do on trails? Is it possible? Climbing logs, Small drops rough trails etc. No huge drops. Would this be a viable option? If so which model would your recommend? I am leaning towards the '09 or '10. Just new wheels and tires would convert this beast?

    Thanks for any insight!

    Sorry for the noob question.

    Creepin, I think the bad boy is a good all around bike and is certainly a good choice if you invest in a set of 26" wheels to go along with the 700c wheels. Having said that, it should be fine on trails until you get into the real technical stuff. It doesn't have much travel in the front shock which you may want if you are going to go over stumps, etc. The gearing is also more hybrid than mountain bike. The frame is tough and should be able to take a lot of abuse though. I'd think of this bike as more along the lines of one of the best hybrids on the market. Now, you could always invest in a lefty fork that would give you a decent amount of travel. I think there's an earlier post by someone that did this.

    The bad boy is based on a XC frame (furio) so in that aspect it will handle trail riding. The stock setup is definitely set up for road and paved surfaces (28c kojak's), but as I understand you can go up to 700x38c which is cross/touring tire type territory which will work well for gravel or hard packed surfaces. Typical XC trail riding and dealing with roots, rocks, drops you will be well served by going with a set of 26" wheels with cushier mtb tires.

    The hardware is certainly aggressively hybrid, the bars are not as wide as XC bars are typically so you don't quite have the leverage (620mm I think, XC's nowadays tend to be 680mm and up to 710mm). But if your trails are not overly technical (relatively speaking..still XC we are talking not AM) the stock bars are okay unless your riding tells you otherwise, certainly no need to ditch them until you try them out first. Definitely change out the stock pedals as they have neither the strength or grip for XC duties.

    In short: tires/wheels and pedals. Give her a shakedown, adjust as necessary!

    I'd caution on the use of 700x38, i have them on mine (a set of serfas vida) and i have had paint rubbed off of the bottom bracket when the wheel picks up mud or limestone, usually when the path is wet. There is only about 2-3mm of clearance there at best. I ended up getting 26 inch rims but it sure does change the riding characteristics of the bike. 26 inch tires make me feel like i'm riding a pig vs a horse. Anyway, still a fun bike.

    Love the bike. I have a couple of Cree flashlights as well and have tried to attach them to my handlebars with tape, velcro and anything else possible with no luck. Where did you get those kick ass mounts from? Can you tell me what brand? They look rock solid, are you pleased with them?

    The model name is SKS Longboard 28''. I have tires with a width of 50 mm 26'' and 27 mm 28'' and had to find a compromise, I bought a version of 45 mm and fits on both types of wheels. Fenders have been a little modified (shortened front fender because didin't fit - the rear there was no problem), cut the wires because they were too long and change the front fender mounting. I used to self-locking cable ties (HeadShok don't have a hole to mount front fender). I painted wires on the black mat, originally color was silver.

    Couple of pics:
    picasaweb.google.com/104159978236491081587/CannondaleBadBoyUltra11111#

    Is it true that we can change frame geometry pressing and blocking headshok?
    Then the front of the bicycle go a little down.In my bike it doesn't work but i read about it.

    I took my single speed on a road trip so I could pedal around Colorado Springs while I was there. My flat land gearing was not too forgiving up there.

    I've been using the Garmin Edge 200 for a couple weeks now. Really like it a lot. Fits perfectly on the stem of my '11 Bad Boy Solo. It picks up the GPS signal quickly and I've found it to be very accurate. Plus, the online Garmin Connect software is a great tool to use.

    So my 2009 BBU has been at the LBS for the last 2 weeks. Took it in as the Headshok went flat overnight. They changed the valve seal? the lower seals? and something else. Called them today and have been told I've been given an upgraded cartridge - should have been £195 for the part alone, but I'll be looking at a bill of £95 all in. He mentioned it's the same cartridge as higher spec cannondale bikes. Any ideas what the differences are? Will the new cartridge be more reliable? I'm doing John O'Groats to Lands End via the 3 peaks next year and don't want it to go flat halfway through the trip (1200 miles)

    Edit - I think the cartridge may be the same as in the Flash 3. Would that make sense? That is an 80mm travel fork as well.

    To answer my own question, they have upgraded the fork, so I now have adjustable rebound and a reliable shock (I hope!)

    Boy this thread has appears to be dying a slow death so I think I'll post some pics of my Bad Boy with 700ccx38 wheels and 26" wheels that I picked up on ebay as well as my fairly recent road bike purchase. I'm in my 40s and getting back into cycling. Bummed out that the winter weather is here.





    And my wife's bike, just for fun...

    We have almost the same bike combo! I have a Bad Boy and my GF a Specilized Mika. My other bike is a MTB, though.

    Oops, I just realized that I did not post a picture of my 2011 and I got it on March.

    Here you go, on her commute attire, although I borrow my GF's 26" wheels to play polo every once in a while.

    Hey see you have the same folding lock as me. How do you like it? I think it's so much better than having to haul around a u-lock or chain. I think you and I are the only ones that own one. I never see them around.

    I'm liking the lock. So far I haven't missed a ulock or a cable lock. I have security skewers and that helps too. It blends in when stowed and looks beefy when deployed.

    Anyone know what the 2012 Bad Boy 1, 5 and 9 correspond to from previous years? I don't know whether the 2011 or the new 2012 would be a better buy.

    According to BikePedia:

    2012 Bad Boy 9 = 2011 Bad Boy = 2010 Bad Boy = 2009 Bad Boy
    2012 Bad Boy 5 = 2011 Bad Boy Solo = 2010 Bad Boy Disc = 2009 Bad Boy Disc
    2012 Bad Boy 1 = 2011 Bad Boy Solo Headshock = 2010 Bad Boy Solo = 2009 Bad Boy Ultra

    I'd say that if you want to use it for commuting only, go with the 2011 base. One of the things I like from the bike is that only the disc brakes draw attention. A lefty will attract looks and bolt cutters, depending on where you park it.

    The top level will gives you good components and a suspension fork. If you want to take it to the trails and do some MTB, you'll need 26" tires with a lefty front hub. My trail bike has a lefty and I chose the base level because, having already one MTB, there would be no point in swapping wheels and taking the BB instead.

    To me, the medium model is overspec'd to be a commuter and, if I wanted to take it to the trail, I'd miss the headshock fork.

    I ended up choosing a BB, but I was also considering the Quick range.

    Why did you choose the BB over the quick? They seem to be basically the same bike.

    EBay fraud alert. This person is selling my bike apparently. It's my picture, lol. I reported him. But thought I'd post a warning here. Last time I checked I'm still in possession of this bike. He simply is using my picture.

    The idiot doesn't even have the correct components listed. Glad that ebay has so far chosen to let this fraudulent item stand without any action at all. This is why I would never ever buy from ebay.

    Well, looks like he updated his pics and removed the one of my bike. Guess that's good enough for ebay, rather than just remove it for "attempted" fraud.

    Doubt it was fraud. He probably just coudnt be bothered to take his own pics and thought that your bike was the same as his bike.

    Not quite. His bike had a full fork and different components and an older model. Mine was a lefty. Imagine bidding on it and learning that it's different than what is shown. If not fraud than misleading at best.

    request for ideas

    anyone know what kind of chain lube comes on a badboy? is it a wax? what lube are people using?

    also, anyone know about touchup paint for the badboy? i picked up some abrasions last year on my 2011bb solo when carrying bikes around on my hitch mount bike carrier.

    i got myself a kinetic road machine indoor trainer for christmas. keeps me cranking the miles in the winter. anyone else doing the same? i'm seeing wear on the rear. i'll rotate tires mid-winter and may look for a new set of tires come spring. i like the stock slick and hope i'll be able to find something comparable.

    (doing my share to keep the thread alive. LOL.)

    Thanks to this sick thread, I hastily pulled the trigger on a 2010 Bad Boy frame w/o researching it enough. I tried, but piece part info is hard to come by. I'm anxiously awaiting its delivery.Maybe you owners can help me with some info in the mean time. What kind of bottom bracket will it take? Will I be able to use a Truvativ Howitzer? What kind and size headset?

    I like the look of the square looking fat head lefty fork but was told it wouldn't fit. The MTB Lefty fork is nice but makes the bike look too much like a MTB; I already have too many of those, 5 to be exact =P. Any thoughts on forks?

    Winter with Spiked Tires

    So this year I decided to ride all winter. Added the Schwable Ice Spiker Pro's and took over my girls 26er wheels. I guess I will be building a pair of Chris King Stan's ZTR Flows for that bike also. Going back to the stock shimanno is a step back, but no way I could fit large tires on the 29er Kings I use.

    Anyways a little pic of the bike right now.

    Thought I would add pic with regular 26er (Schwable Furious Fred) now that there is no snow. Waiting on my Chris Kings to be ready, but loving riding in the "dirty"

    Amazingly agile the BB as a MTB.

    Sweet! If Aston Martin made a bike it'd probably look a lot like this. The tyres are very James Bond-esque.

    If you could only hear the sound they make on pavement and left over sand.

    It roars louder than hell and has this strange sort of popping sound. I will switch them over to the Furious Fred's in a day or two as all the snow is gone and we are in the plus temps now.

    The Hell I raised this winter with them, my Sidi cleats with a pair of Mematec foot warmers, and Mavic inferno gear ruled. In a way I am sad to switch to normal tires. However I got a new pair of Hutchinson Fusion 3 700 X 23 for the King/Crest's.

    I highly recommend them for winter though if your on Ice and snow. Simply awesome!

    nice! have you developed a flat spot on your tires also? i've done about 300miles so far and they're looking pretty bad. i backed off the tension but had to tighten it back up since the tire squealed with each power stroke; like it was slipping a bit. anyway, i'm new to trainers and maybe new tires is just par for the course.

    All, I own a 2012 BB with the lefty shock. I am considering upgrading the crankset. Any suggestions? I am thinking I want to keep the gears, so something that swaps right in. PLEASE give my your thoughts, I don't mind spending a little $ to get it right. The one that is stock is OK, yet I see the crankset one of the most updated items on these bikes.

    The local bike shop recommended I go with the Trekking stuff from Cannondale so that I don’t need any other equipment changes besides the crankset. They also said stick with the 175mm because it fits the bike, XL frame. I am 6/4 about 235lbs. Thanks SO MUCH for your help.

    1. Truvativ Firex Trekking 3.3 GXP 175 Crank Set (Blast Black, 48-36-26
    2. Shimano Deore 2-piece 9-Speed Mountain Bicycle Crank Set - FC-M590
    3. SHIMANO DEORE FC-M591 TREKKING
    4. Model Number FC-M660-10
    5. Or an XT model that works…
    6. Or other recommendations

    +1 we all had to follow the rules too. Don't see us complaining. I'm sure that rule was put in for a good reason.

    OK, I need one of these. I just moved to Florida yesterday (The Villages) and I want a flat bar road bike to maul the bike paths. I was looking at the Specialized Sirrus Comp but this thing has got my attention. My local St Louis dealer doesn't sell Cannondale and the dealers down here are more interested in telling me what I need and selling me entry level bikes they have in stock.

    Does anybody have or seen a large BB9 or BB5 available? Or a left over 2011? Have cash/need a Bad Boy.

    Please help!

    Thanks in Advance

    Tom

    so i just got a pic of the bb and seems to be a 2009. i really dont know the difference between the 09 and 2010 models, you guys can help me out with that one. the good news is, it did look like there were disc mounts on the fork so im assuming i would be able to upgrade in the future if i pull the trigger on it.

    Hi all I picked up my 2012 BB yesterday and had a good ride to work last night, its the standard Alivio version with the Fatty rigid but all the components will be changed in the coming months.

    The only edition from the LBS is the eggbeater 2s which they put in the deal for me



    And a pic with my other C/dale


    Hope you like

    Tubeless" Stan's ZTR Crest 29er, Hutchinson Fusion 3 (700X23)

    So I been chatting with a few people and after Stan's gave one advice then a different on their message board I thought I would update here...
    Yes you can run Tubeless tires on Crest 29er. Had Hutchinson Intensives at 25mm but they where defective, and could not source another pair here in Germany. Now I got Fusion 3 (seems much faster), on them.

    Bad Boy Tubeless seems to rule

    Oh also I think Speedneedle and Nokon Cables are also new from last pics.

    Drop Bar Cannondale Bad Boy with Hydro brakes

    Thought it might be time to breath life back into this thread.

    When I lived in NYC the standard bars were fine (if limited in position) but now that I live in PDX my riding is less stressful and so I can afford to finally do a drop bar conversion. There was a bike I saw once (here?) that had a set of drops with white tape and I loved it so that became my inspiration. I'd planned on modding the stock levers to be like cross brakes but when I stopped by Universal Cycles to look for a stem I found that Hope had released their conversion kit. I always liked Hope brakes and the kit seemed very sano and so I went for it. The stem is too long right now and I haven't wrapped bars in forever so that didn't go well but overall I'm very pleased with the conversion and I like the look.

    The cranks came off my mountain bike and I ditched the granny as I never use it. I keep thinking about replacing them with something more road or cross oriented but for now they work fine. I might look into having them powder coated or anodized black.







    I had to machine and weld a new bracket for the Hope master cylinder and it doesn't really lock into position but the cables keep it centered. I'll weld a tab or put a pin in it later.



    Since the majority of my riding is taking my daughter to daycare in a trailer I really wanted and needed to keep the hydraulic discs for their power. Here's the rear caliper and that silver thing is the hitch to the trailer.



    I love the way campy's ergo levers shift and went with a set I found on ebay. The cable from the hoods to the master is short and there's no sponginess - just very solid powerful stopping.



    I used a Jtek Shiftmate adapter and I can't tell you how happy I am with it. It converted the Campy 10 speed shifters to work with the Shimano SLX 9 speed rear derailleur perfectly. I'm still surprised at how well it works and how well the bike shifts. Once I get my shorter stem I think the fit will be perfect.

    I needed a new saddle so I just kept the white theme going with it and a set of new tires which I think really help to show off the Solo front end. I will probably have to put fenders back on as we're not through with spring here but for now I like to just look at it like this. It's certainly got the bad boy look but it's also different which I like so I'm very happy with the way it turned out.
