    If you get your tape measure out you can make some approximations as to where the centre of you bars will end up.

    I myself went for function over form, I didn't really like the riding position and as such never used the bike that much. Now though, I love this bike!

    What rear hub did you use, I was thinking of changing my wheels to Arch EX and a hope hub myself? The current X9 hub is a little slow on engagement along with the bearings being rough.

    Here is a pic of my new to me '12 carbon frame. I finally snapped and couldnt take the white fork with the blk/silv/red frame. Decided to sand it down as I never have luck with paint sticking long term to anything.

    Looks sweet now (Ithink) and it was an abslout horrible job to do by hand. I have only gone to a 400grit paper right now a a couple coats of wax, but I may do a full polish on it at some point. my fingers hate me right now!

    Comes in just under 20LBS With a very budget build. Mostly x9 and XT




    Heres the parts list if anyone is interested. I am kinda proud of the budgetness of it.

    Hi mod frame replaced warranty alloy.
    Stock alloy riser bar
    Stock alloy Seatpost
    Specialized Phenom Ti rails saddle
    Ritchey WCS foam grips.
    Stock non OPI stem (I think I might want an OPI -15)
    90mm PBR alloy lefty
    X9 Crank spider removed
    Wolf tooth 30T DM ring
    x7 rear shifter
    x9 Type 2 RD
    XT cassette
    XT brakes
    kcnc 160fr rotor
    kcnc 140R rotor
    kmc x10sl Gold chain
    XT Pedals
    old style Industry nine wheel set on crest rims
    Specialized Sworks Renegade 1.95 front and rear.
    Stock seat post clamp
    Stock Skewer
    Some crappy bottle holder.

    Sounds about right, I do seem to recall the Hi mod frames being a touch lighter but I dont know if that was confirmed.

    Hoping my carbon bars and seatpost get here soon, excited to see if there is a big difference over the alloy.

    The last time it was weight was 20.00lbs with 180fr and 160r avid rotors. Have 160fr and 140r now so I was able to ditch the adapter in the rear.

    Im curious how much weight came off the fork....there was a tonne of paint on that dam thing!

    But how is the change in terms of manevrability, stability and climbing? I mean in a race conditions, do you race also ?

    I don't race, no and got me the ultimate consideration was the debilitating back pain. Handling of ur bike doesn't change much worth Sturm length, contrary to popular belief, but bar width is much more of a factor.

    This is my first post and my first day with a Cannondale. I previously owned a trek X-Caliber and have been itching to try the lefty! After looking at everyone's photos for the last week, I had to take the plunge.
    I am shocked at how well the bike rides and also how light it is. Hopefully my new toy will provide me with many rides to come. I got a heck of a deal on a loaded bike.

    Dropped another .6 of a pound! Not bad for a $100.

    Bought some hylix stuff. After one ride the bar felt great. the saddle moved abit but I havent got my torque wrench yet. the Ti rails and alu Clamps make for a slippery surface.




    Should have it down near 19lbs now. Will weight it tomorrow hopefully.

    It amazes me as well...
    With the 2012 F29 Carbon frame and Lefty, Reynolds Carbon wheelset and light tubeless tires (Schwalbe RaRa/RoRo) as well as 2x10 XX F/R derailleurs and Hollogram cranks and my bike weight is 20.5
    I guess it matter what scale one is using ... I use the Red Feedback Sports Alpine.

    Mine was measured on a park scale. It was 20.07. Thay was with 180mm fr 160mm rear avids. Have since gone to kcnc 160/140mm and lost the rear adapter.
    Then the carbon bits. In theory , it should be 19.5ish.

    The 1x saved alot of weight for me.

    Yes, the 1x explains a lot...
    Still, I like my 2x10... 39/26 11/36, the 1x11 doesn't get as low or as high as that combo.

    Hey guys I have a 2012 alloy 1 large. I just shredded my rear derailuer. Is it a short or medium cage? There is no part number.

    I would think it's a long cage schlava?

    You might get away with a medium however.

    '12 Flash Carbon3
    Pretty stock , minus panaracer tires, egg beaters, bar ends.

    Might be looking into making this bike a light weight.

    Where is the biggest bang for the buck in taking off a few lbs?
    And still be strong,, Im a bigger rider.

    The wheels were a huge one on my '13... Shimano m5XX hub is like 499 grams. The i19 rims are light so just going with a light hub and spokes on the rear wheel could be inexpensive (bikehubdtore.com look for the mtb270) and would save half a lb. Also depending on where you live you could go 1x10. My race face narrow wide cost me $35 and with deleting the extra chain ring, fd, and shifter, it was over 1lb savings. That's almost lbs for under $200 :-)

    At 23lbs it is already pretty light!

    As twonin9r suggested wheels, tubes and tires are the main place, bars and seat post for carbon equivalent is another option. If you want to keep 2x10, hollowgram cranks?

    Guess I'm going 1 x 10 then. Since I'm on road tires might as well!
    What's a decent setup? Think I want to keep with xtr everything.

    Race face narrow wide and just remove everything else. $40 and that's it.

    2012 flash alloy 3 large frame, my baby. New to the sport and these forums. Grabbed this beauty off of craigslist for a great deal and have been having a blast ever since. The guy I purchased it from had only test ridden it once on pavement so it was basically new when i acquired it. I took this picture on top of Blue Hills in southeast Mass.

    New F29 Carbon 3. I just bought a new 2014 F29 Carbon 3 at my local LBS inventory clear out. I got it for CDN $2325. I will post photos when I pick it up on Saturday. Now time to start the upgrade process 😊. First step will be to change the stem to a more upright stem. Itching to get it out for a run

    My '12 Carbon 3 Lrg weighs 21 with pedals. To be fair it is no longer in stock format either. I changed the seatpost, bars, cranks, fork and wheels to get it there. I had lightweight pedals on it from the beginning.

    It's basically carbon everything and the new XTR pedals, it's a Flash 1. I can't stop smiling really. It's so smooth, the carbon softens the small stuff.

    Black Inc model is flat black like you see it. I think it is just dirty in some of those pics to make it look sanded.

    Believe it or not...
    Two weeks ago, I bought a BRAND NEW 2012 Flash (Carbon 2, M) off the floor at LBS. As you can see in photo, the bike didn't come with the original seat post, but I just bought the right piece on ebay for $89.

    The plan is to replace my RZ120 and ride it in long distance races 50-100 milers. When convenient, I'll probably ride some XC also.

    Pretty psyched!

    Just picked up this MINT 2011 Flash 1 Carbon 26" a couple of days ago in a trade. I am really thinking of going 650b with it, but still on the fence... Anyone else out there do that and did it really make that big of a difference? This bike weighs in at 19lbs as it sits even with the crazy heavy Continental tires on it...

    Hi all,

    I recently took delivery of my new 2014 F29 Carbon Team. The pic below was taken on my first ride after a heavy freeze. Lots of ice around making for an interesting maiden voyage! Beautiful day though and fine way of burning off the Christmas calories.

    So far, I'm absolutely blown away with this bike. I've had many nice hard tails but this one is the best yet by some margin. Can't wait to start racing it in 2015.

    Very nice ride, XC-Matt

    Here's my 2014 F29 Carbon 3. Only one ride on it so far but very impressed with the weight and handling characteristics. Never had a Lefty. I kept looking down to make sure it wouldn't roll off. LOL. Loving the look, the color, quality and most importantly, the ride! I couldn't ask for a better hardtail (given my budget).

    Da-yum that is a sweet SS! Are you using an EBB for chain tension? Be interested to read your build kit. Well done!

    . I messed around with some gearing options and found that 34/18 worked perfect. No tensioner. I did end up setting it up 1x10 though. My other bike is a SS surly krampus so I figured I would have a high tech geared bike and a ss monster truck. I did build up a 29+ front wheel for the f29 though. It is a blast to ride now

    Very cool...looks like a fun bike to ride. I run a 2.4 tire on the front of my HT and FS bikes and most of the time wish it was fatter.

    How does the 29+ tire and wider wheel change the ride? Is it taller?

    I always liked C'Dales BBQ Black.

    It is a normal Velocity Dually rim with the offset added by dishing the wheel a few extra mm away from the fork

    The larger tire lifts the front end up a little. I like it because it lays the head tube angle back a bit. Feels stable on the downhills and monstertrucks the climbs, can't ask for anymore than that.

    Hi all

    I am building a 26er flash frame up.

    2 questions:

    1. Is it necessary to face a bb30 shell on these frames?

    2. SRAM XX chainset. Will Q-Factor 156 fit?

    Thanks in advance.

    Bougth this one today:

    Post your Flash-flash21.jpg


    The bike is a '12 Flash 2 Carbon converted to 650b with Notubes Crest built by R2bike in Germany. Otherwise pretty standard. Weighs in at 8.2kg, a little over 18lbs. Really looking forward to try it!

    Was it originally a 26" or 29" wheeled bike?

    Here's a question you don't hear all the time...
    What roof bike rack you Guys use for the Lefty??
    The reason I ask is because, I'm picking up my 2013 C-Dale F29 2 that I just won on eBay

    Here's a pick of my new 2014 Cannondale F29 Alloy4. Made several changes not sure on exact weight but should be in the 22lb range. Stock weight was just over 24lbs. Hope to get ride #2 in today now that the weather has improved and the trails has dried up. This will be the 1st ride with all the changes.

    Quick question about the seat post on my F29...
    Have any of you Guys change to a No setback post??
    Did the feel of the ride change much?
    Did you have a hard time setting up the bike with a no setback?
    Thanks Mike

    Already done, I hate the Avid's. I've had them before on 3 other bikes and changes two of the times to Formula. Better braking performance as well.

    Ok, let us know how it will work on long term, I saw to many friends of mine complaining about the pad clearance, and then giving up on them...

    Also, even I recognize they have great power, I don't like their modulation, it is to brutal for me, just gently pressing the brake levers and the brakes block the wheel
