    It would be great to get some stem and seatpost info. I'm looking at your Medium wondering if I'm going to be able to raise that post a little higher. If I can I assume a 120/ -5stem with a flat bar is going to do the trick.

    YB....I have a 100mm stem with -5deg. I can pull the seatpost out to max and give you a BB center to seat rails measurement if you like.

    That would be really helpful and I would appreciate it. How much is still in the seat tube right now? Looks like you should be able to get another inch or so out of that SAVE post.


    I would also love to see some more pix too if you get that better camera. Right now I anticipate going mtn. tubular on my Flash 1 with a 3X10 Sram XX/XO component mix. Edge rims and now I just need to decide on hubs and leaning towards 28 spoke....

    With the post out to max, it's 770mm (77cm) from center of BB to seat rails.

    Hey Trauma Md
    COUPLE QUICK QUESTIONS
    1) Why 42-28 combo and not 39-26 normal 29er setup?
    2) What spindle did u use for the cannondale cranks? 131 or 132

    1. Just the gearing I am used to running. The cassette is 11-32. It's a pretty light bike and I love to climb, so it won't be any different than what I've been running on my previous 29er's.

    2. Using the 132. The 131 is for 68mm only. Even though the Cannondale Flash Carbon manual says it's a 68mm shell, it is really a 73.

    Cool bike and nice pix!

    The gearing however hurts just looking at it. You must be able to sustain 350 watts plus at LT. I don't love the idea of putting a triple on my Flash but don't see anyway around it. Guess I'll end up with XX on the Scalpel and some kind of mish mash on the Flash 29.

    Amillmtb: Yes. Keeps my brakes and shifters out wide...and I don't have big hands anyway...

    HAL: I have always run 140's on my 29 and 26ers. I'm about 60kg so there's not much to stop

    I've got a Flash 1 full bike coming with the FSA K Force triple, and I figure the 42-27 combo on the FSA 386 crankset would be just about perfect gearing for a Flash (without the obscene expense of going to XX and 10 spd.). Oddly, FSA doesn't list a carbon 386 crankset with BB30, although they do have an alloy Afterburner crank in that configuration. Has anyone thought about the 386 for the Flash?

    Yup... plan on doing the same thing you are. I don't have the $$$ for XX, so I'll keep with 2x9 and make my chainrings a bit smaller (used to run 29-44 rings). Should be fun, if my bike ever shows up!!!

    Oh, and there is a 386 carbon BB30 crankset... saw one this past weekend.

    What is the rear hub that is coming on the ZTR Arch wheelset that is coming on the 29er 1 carbon? It is not listed on Cannondale's web site. I have heard that it might be a DT 240, but it was never confirmed.

    VERY ugly indeed. But Di2 shifitng an 11-36 cassette is a cool trick. How hard is it to do, I wonder?

    hey madskatingcow, how'd you get your schwalbe's to go tubeless with the DT kit on the carbon 1.2's? I had to use a stan's rimstrip to get mine to seal up, the DT tubelesskit didn't work for me.

    nice bike and glad to see you didn't spend the money to replace your vintage TV!

    Interesting indeed. The more I look at it, the more I'm starting to like it............................then when I look at it too long it looks ugly again but its always nice to see an original bike scheme. I wonder if the shifting is all good and smooth?

    Also Dan, where was the photo taken? Would be nice to know

    Thanks

    Well, inflating them wasn't that hard. I just installed the DT Swiss tubeless kit's on the rims, and inserted the valves. Next, I used some soapy water on the tire beads, put them on. Very important is that you pull the tire all the way to the edge of the rim. The DT Swiss kit has an 'edge' (for easier inflation) where you should try to pull the tire over. Next, remove the valve core and use a compressor. I inflated them to about 2 - 2.5 bar. Insert the latex, insert the valve- core and re- inflate to 2 bar. From then on it's like in Stan's how-to movie : shake the wheel from side to side, all the way round the wheel so the latex can seal the edges. Lay the wheel on one side for 5 min, repeat the shaking and lay it on the other side. It can be you have to do this 2 - 3 days in a row, before it's fully sealed, though. Schwalbe tire's aren't the easiest, as their beads aren't the best in the market. Maxxis, Vredestein, Michelin, etc have better beads.

    Enjoy & good luck!

    Yup, Sea Otter... at the Cannondale booth.

    I think Troy Lee is blind, he makes the cheapest, ugliest crap on the market... I'd trust Stevie Wonder to come up with better paint jobs, at least he's got the soul!

    Flash Custom DI2

    This was built at Newbury Park Bicycle Shop for Cannondale to debut at Sea Otter. Troy Lee did the paint and although you can't see it in the photos, the black on the paint is raw carbon. Shifters are polished and were custom made just for this project. Polished Stan's rims with ceramic coated Extra-lite hubs. Full carbon Tune saddle was wrapped in Troy lee SLR saddle cover.

    For the 36 tooth capacity, custom hangers were made that allow a stock DI2 rear derailleur to work flawlessly with an 11-36t cassette. The fork was supposed to be a Simon but didn't have enough time to get it done. Reviews and testing to come.

    Di2 Conversion kits are available in red, blue, black, silver and polished....

    Well, like the paint or not, nice work setting the bike up. I'm not sure how strong are the battery casings but, I'm not convinced the battery location is quite the best for a mountain bike.

    agreed. why don't they mount the bottle cage on the downtube and the battery on the front of the seat tube? also, how sealed is the Di2 system? and lastly, it's an improved trail bike not a mtn bike. furious freds are only good for dropping weight not traction

    There were clearance issues with the front derailleur mount, which had to be custom made as the flash frame was not engineered for a road braze on derailleur. There is a custom wiring harness in the works but could not complete in time for Sea Otter

    First there are no cage braze-on's on the bottom of the down tube and the current placement is temporary. Let me know where the trails are in the city since this isn't Mtn Bike. Battery on the seat tube looks like crap plus its more wiring on the frame that you see. How sealed is the Di2 system? Planning on swimming with it? Furious Freds are a great tire. Un-fortunately the terrain on Earth calls for more than one tire option so to say the tires are not good for traction is a poor statement. Obviously Schwalbe did not make them for looks. Should have put Minion DHR 2.7 3c's for traction needed to be hung on the rack at Sea Otter?

    @Bearonbike

    you might want to get your eyes checked. There are definitely braze-ons on the down tube for a bottle cage. Check Mr Gerous's pictures.

    Yeah. Swap the cage to the down tube and move the battery pack to the seat tube

    The battery will actually get placed out of sight hopefully when I get the new custom harness. Placing it on the ST or DT was not esthetically pleasing. I didn't want to put the battery in the current location but had too. Normally I put them on the CS but the brake hose guides were there. Keep an eye out. This is a preliminary build and it will improve. Watch for coverage during the ToC. Thanks for the suggestions though.

    I'm going to have to disagree with you on that one. Have you ever actually ridden that tire or you just making an assumption? I have on on my Scalpel and Flash in the rear. It has grip like you would not believe. It also climbs like a beast, never slips.....never.

    They are great when it's dry and are tough enough for mild-med rocks, but when it gets wet or when riding on slippery roots, I mount up rocket ron's

    Flex in the stays

    Can someone tell me how much flex actually occurs on the flash hardtail? I ride a full suspension bike for Xterra's and im strongly considering a flash hardtail 29er but would like to hear more about the so called flex in the stays. Please advise.

    I already asked this in another thread but all three of these bikes run 122mm spindels. How hard is that to do, I'd like to try it on my '09 Scalpel.

    I'm going to UCI XCO race @ Houffalize this weekend, I'll see if I can have a talk with the Cannondale Team Mechanic and ask about the 122mm spindles.

    There are plenty of pictures around as these wheels have been ridden since before the last Olympics, just google Crossmax Ultimate. The ones with a black rim are UST clinchers, basically, more or less the same rim as current SLR's but with the hollow carbon spokes bonded to the hubs. The ones with a silver rim have the same spokes and hubs but the rims are tubulars and they incorporated 4 carbon strips into the alloy rim, allowing the use of less material and so lighter weight yet achieving great stiffness. Word is the UST are around 1250gr, the tubulars closer to 1000gr.

    Wait next season, but you'll probably need the complete new internals, if not the whole new Lefty Speed SL PBR. I don't see the point of a remote for the Lefty, the top of the Lefty os only a few cm away from your hand already... but, I'd want on a Scalpel, paired with the Rock Shox shock below, and a dual Xloc remote that locks both wheels at once. On a Flash, I'd stick with the PBR lockout without a remote.

    I thought that was a great looking bike and was excited to see it at Sea Otter. Thanks to Cannondale for spending the money to build it. The Independent 29er was cool also.

    I don't know what it is, but I am a huge fan of the purple. Something about it just makes the green accents pop too.

    11-28. I run road cassettes for the gear spacing, I will be taking off the XX on the race set for a Sram Red also, just haven't got it yet. Definitely keeping the XX for the mountains when I go however.

    Put the XX back for mud days, Red cassettes pack with mud then the chain can slip when it's too muddy.

    Yup. Even SRAM sponsored cyclocross guys use Dura-Ace cassettes because Red doesn't work in the mud.
