    It must descend well indeed. I'm with you on the width, it was more being so high up that makes it look like a dirt jumper.

    Great bike anyway.

    It's probably the camera angle...bars are actually lower than the saddle.

    Thanks Dan!

    BEER EBB?

    I used one last year on my F-29. Decided that after 13 years, I'd probably come to the end of my one-speed-only life.

    Looking forward to getting my F-Si, hopefully early in the new year.

    Awesome LOS! Post pics when it hits!

    Thought about the EBB but the singleator makes it easier to swap to geared if I want..plus I can still use my hollowgrams...

    Wheels are the only big weight improvement I can see. Think there is a pound to lose there. Glue on grips might be another place, but we are not talking much weight there. Seat and post maybe? Not sure of those weights yet...

    Must be some other "heavy" bits on the bike. Not to say its heavy by any means. I know the frame is very light. Maybe the new PBR lefties have picked up some grams?

    Even some crest and tubless could get it down a pound, im still suprised it isnt lower. Its 1x with hollowgram cranks, a carbon post ect. What did you weigh it on?

    I'm with him, reason I asked what size frame it was. My '12 F29 Carbon 3 Lrg is lighter then your medium FSI. Yes it did not start out as light as it is, but would have thought a medium FSI would be lighter. I think they are putting heavier stuff on the new bikes.

    Well i did my first ride, the bike is very very fast.
    The Lefty, although its said that is heavier, keeps working like no other fork.
    My wheels worked fine, it was a short ride, ill have a better opinion in some weeks. I think they gave a good contribution to the fastness.
    Didnt fancy the Fabric seat, itll be replaced for sure (had this in mind already, besides its heavy).
    The tires are also something to change. I think a larger tire is better, ill wear this ones and change.
    Had no chance to weight it yet!

    Post your F-Si



    Have 150 miles on the bike now and like it a lot.
    -single track: it carves up a storm. If you are in the attack position with a little rear weight bias this thing just flies on single track. If you don't get enough lean angle on the bike you can feather the rear brake and the rear wheel just pops back online. The lower bb compared to my old bike is something I have to get used to. I broke a pedal smashing it into a rock. This is no fault of the bikes though.
    -climbing: it climbs great seated. If you get bumped of line it is very easy to ride back onto the line. Standing climbing the rear traction is not as good compared to my Breezer cloud 9
    -Descending: technical slow butt on top of the rear tire descents is where this bike is a surprise. You pick the line and this thing just sucks to it. It is the best technical descending bike I have ever ridden. On high speed descents the bike just rails and is extremely stable. Get into that attack position and just fly.
    -drive train: xo is nice but it does not like leaves.

    All in all I am very impressed with the bike!

    Just got this one replacing my 2014 Team. First thing I noticed is that the Lefty 2.0 is really really rough. Although pressure and sag as suggested its almost like riding rigid. Anyone else noticed that? Send me PM.

    Cheers

    There was a thread when the hybrid lefty first came out, not sure if it applies to the 2.0. I think the fix was tweaking the volume of the air spring.

    Now I get to ask, how do you like the change in geometry and the new fork offset? Noticable/better then previous?

    Very nice bike!

    Which stem/steerer configuration are you running? Looks to be shorter than a 90mm OPI stem.

    Anyone knows the stem length fitted on a large F-SI?

    I am using Project 321 steerer for a 1 1/8" stem, the stem is Ritchey 80mm in length, -25 degrees rise. FYI, F-Si bike has a 80mm OPI stem on a size small frame, and 90mm OPI stem on a size medium frame.

    I bought a large F-SI yesterday and it was fitted with a 90mm stem. I'm surprised that you claim that the small frame size comes with a 80mm OPI stem. From what I can see on the Cannondale homepage 90mm is the shortest OPI stem available. If you are right, which I hope you are, the 80mm must be available soon.

    Perhaps the 80mm OPI stem is only available on the complete bike at this stage, it will be on the market later on, I hope so!

    I'm interested, how does the FS-I compare to the F29? I have an F29 Team, and whilst I'm not going to change it this year, but maybe the year after.
    and no, I am not missing the other half of my fork....

    Hi, sorry but i never had the chance to try the F29 (unlucky me).
    But from what i heard it has a high pilot position!?!
    The F-Si is FAST in every situation.

    What sizes are you all riding? I'm 180 cm tall, and I don't know whether I should get a medium or a large. I'm currently riding a large F29 Team, but the F-Si has longer reach than the F29, so I'm thinking maybe I need a medium...

    Post your F-Si

    Anyone in this thread ride a small?

    If so, can you measure from the ground to the top of the top clamp?

    Trying to get an idea of handlebar height before I order. My current ride, with a 90mm SID and Rocket Ron 2.25s, sits at 36"/91.4cm.

    Thanks!

    Hi, im not feeling that about the Lefty at all! I have the PBR on my Scalpel, and this one on the F-Si is working fine.
    Is it something(?) with yours or the XLR model?

    I find the XLR on my scalpel way softer and more linear than the 2.0. However now after a while it has broken in and it appears to be getting better. Still not comparable to the XLR though.

    Last years hybrid Lefty's were exactly the same. They just need breaking in a bit...

    So how is this so much lighter then the carbon 2? very close weight on the xx1/x01, I didnt think the mavic rims were very light. every thing else should be the same correct?

    Im really wanting an fsi but all but the 2 are out of my price range. I would hate to gain 3 pounds over my f29

    anyone know when the new batch of FSI's are coming in? I ordered a carbon 2 and it was supposed to be here last month. No word from LBS when it's supposed to arrive. Apparently there's a dock strike for everything coming into the US.

    It could be that. However, the fork on my F-Si Team (2.0 carbon XLR) has some scratches on the inner leg, just like my F29 Team had (carbon XLR). I had the inner leg of the fork on my F29 changed, and I suspect my F-Si will have to go to the doctor because of this...

    The fork action of the fork on my F-Si is harsh, just as it was on my F29 (but it got much better after the inner leg was replaced).

    VICpt: looks great! i like the blue Ergons.

    My wife just got an FSi carbon 2. I don't have pics but lots of people asking about weight so in case it helps:-

    FSi carbon 2, size S.
    Stock bike weight with pedals: 10.18KG (22.4lb)
    The stock bike has a really good, sensible spec, I think, with pretty light drivetrain, brakes, finishing kit and cranks. Most of the "excess" weight is in the wheels, I'd say. I weighed a few bits:

    Inner tubes -200g each,
    Tyres - 700 and 740g (for 2.1 ralphs!!!)
    Handlebar 179g,
    seatpost 219g,
    saddle 259g,
    grips 66g

    stock listed weights:
    rims: 460g each
    spokes: 209g per wheel
    nipples: 30g per wheel
    front hub: 129g
    Rear hub: 290g (though from weighing the wheel and subtracting the weights I know, I suspect the hub actually weighs more than this.)

    With new wheels and tyres it should go under 20lb without too much hassle. Lovely bike!

    Edit: A couple more weights:

    Lefty 2.0 PBR Alloy (smallest size, I'm presuming) 1677g (with adapter bolts, moto guard and brake hose guides).

    FSi Frame (size S) : 1187g (with Headset bearings, BB bearings, seat clamp, cable guide, mech hanger) somewhere around 1030g "bare".

    On the FSI's I see they are running the front brake line forward above the rotor, zip-tied in the moto-guard and then up the front. This image shows it well:



    What is the reason for that? It seems to me like every time you reinstall the front wheel, you run the risk of not paying attention to the slack in the line and having it sliced by your front rotor during the ride.

    Also when you remove the caliper and the hose is routed like that, it heads straight for the spokes and gets in the way. Wasn't it better with the old routing? (up the back and forward through the Lefty?)

    Not a fan of that routing either, so I just bypass it. Especially with Shimano calipers, the angle is very acute and difficult to manage set up.

    Cannondale anchors the line to the lower to prevent extra slack (during compression) from migrating into the spokes.

    When you bypass the motoguard, make sure that you compress the fork fully and adjust the location so that the line slack doesn't go near the wheel/spokes.

    Very nice njleach!

    Today i rode for the first time with my new chainring: Garbaruk Melon 34 t (oval).
    It was an awesome feeling, the pedaling is much easy and "soft".
    Im very impressed, now i have to hit some walls to test it on hard climbing.

    Just took an F-SI 2 on a test ride.
    Went through my usual loop, choppy, sometimes rocky single track.
    Current bike is an RZ120.

    Some conclusions:
    - Front of the bike is completely dialled. Amazing.
    - Tires are a bit too skinny and racy for me. 2.2/ 2.3 gripping front/ fast rear (Ardent/ cross mark) combo would work better.
    - Rear is amazingly compliant, however it's still a hardtail. This takes some getting used to, as with my RZ I just bash into stuff when I'm tired - Need to re-teach myself to take the easier lines.
    - I don't like the sram and magura stuff. hopefully there will be an xt 11 option for 2016.
    - On the uphill, this bike is like cheating. seriously. point and shoot, any line.
    - fine tuning is crucial - get the air pressure right on the rear balanced so it would have enough cushion and grip yet won't destroy the rim.
    - The saddle (never heard of this "fabric" brand) is excellent! wonderful surprise.

    All in all, this bike is completely amazing - though I'll wait for the 2016 models for now, hopefully there will be a shimano xt version available.

    Did you remove the spacers that are internal on the steerer itself?

    Trauma,

    That's a great point, am going to take the bike to the mechanic, the person that always work on my bike was not there, I will ask him to check if the other mechanic left the spacers inside, thanks for the tip



    there was some spacers inside the steer tube, all of them were removed and left two spacers on top, depend how i feel on the ride, i will leave it with two spacers or remove them.

    Not sure if the chainline will be correct due to the FSi offset. Other than that it should work since it uses a 30mm spindle. Why not just send you Hollowgram crank to 4iiii and have them install a Precision? Much less cost and you get to keep using the Hollowgram cranks which are a lot less prone to problems compared to Rotor.

    Hey VICpt,

    I originally went 1x with the Di2 as I didn't need the full range of a 2x. After going 1x I felt it wasn't worth the additional weight penalty of the battery, controller etc... and charging it, so just went XX1. Where Di2 comes into its own is in combination with a front derailleur - synchro shifting, auto-adjustment etc.., so once you take the FD out of the equation a lot of the benefit is lost (for me at least).

    Since changing to XX1 i've been very pleased. Running a 32T front and 10-42 rear and it's a good range

    Hi, how is the chainline with the Garbaruk 34T ? I thought the FSI Carbon 2 or FSI carbon team with XX1 have a Ai spider to compensate the offset ?

    I have a FSi Carbon 1 with 2x10 xt/xtr, and want to switch to XX1 but preferably without using a spider.

    Hi Ron, the chainline is tight, very close, but never had any issue with it.

    hello
    I try to know if it's possible to put a Garbaruk oval chainring on my F-SI 1x11 ... because there is a difference of 5mm on the chainline with a "normal" bike...
    can you tell me if it works well ? noisless ?
    thanks

    Im looking in buying F-SI and wondering if anyone knows the reason cannondale went with 27.5 wheels on S size for 2016. I might just try to find a 2015 as i wish to stay on a 29er. Is it due to the geometry of the small frame not suitable foe the big wheels?

    Have you ever seen someone on a small 29er who has been professionally fit? I have a friend who rides an xs 29er and the fitter had to make some adjustments that look downright bizarre to get the bike to fit her. The fitting process is a little easier for smaller riders on smaller wheels.

    Touring bikes have frequently used smaller wheels for smaller sizes for YEARS.

    It's not right or wrong but it is not uncommon to do it either way.

    Harold - I would understand how weird an xs 29er would be without the need to have the bike fitted to the rider. I was just wondering as 2015 the small was 29er while 27.5 on 2016. Is this due to handling or maybe geometry issues. BTW I'm 5'6 and will fit on a small frame without the need for any bizarre fitting maybe like a -25deg stem

    Just picked it up today and took it out for a few miles. I came off a 2013 Scalpel 29 3, that just had a crack in the chainstay.

    Love the new bike!

    I've got a 2015 small and love it. It is one of the best riding bikes I've ever had. I think 27.5 for small and xsmall is the new industry trend to try to get down to the shortest riders of the spectrum. I'm sure there are folks out there that can't get on a small 29er, but it's too bad the industry decided to decide that for us instead of letting us decide for ourselves. I believe Trek and some other brands are doing this too. Xsmall and Small = 27.5, Med, Lg and XLg = 29er. Oh well. I think if you're at least 5'6" you'll be fine on the 2015 Small 29er. I'm 5'7" and it's fine.

    My wife has a 2015 FSi in small and she really likes the combo of small frame (the standover clearance is really good on the small Fsi) with the 29er wheels. Smaller wheels do help with getting the front end low enough for a smaller rider but with the lefty 2.0 lower profile and shorter head tube the front end doesn't seem too high on the small Fsi anyway. Yeah I think if you like 29ers I'd grab one before they drop to 27.5, it's a really nice bike!
