    Another '08 Scalpel 4. I've swapped out the tires and grips so far, and love the way this bike handles the trails here in the midwest.

    That red is the color I was going to go with when I got my 06 replaced but I called back and changed to white with green trim. They are both nice colors. I changed enough parts out so far to get my bike just under 24 lbs. The last thing I want is the 2X9, BB30 crankset but for what they cost I don't think I'll ever get it. I don't understand where they get off charging $800 to $900 for a crankset when I just bought a computerized virtual reality trainer for about that much. I can buy a huge LCD TV for less than that. I hope Cannondale folks are reading this and realized they are pricing themselves out of a sale. Sorry to fly off topic. That's a real nice red Scalpel and I'm glad you took the time to post it.

    The price is for the extreme light weight.

    Other manufacturer make BB30 2x9's...FSA for one has a few.

    Light weight or not it sucks some greedy bastard put a price that high on something as simple as a crankset. Anyway, it use to be the norm to put an avg price of $1.00 per gram. That rule flew out the window when carbon started coming out. I might pay $615 for one but not more. I like steak on my table too.

    XL Scalpel 1000 '02

    I've thoroughly enjoyed reading this thread and seeing all the beautiful bikes. I just wanted to show off mine; the first-edition 2002 Scalpel is still going strong under my 205lbs. This is my commuter bike, I started riding a daily 17 mile round trip through a wildlife management area a few months ago.



    After quite a few upgrades I'm down to 24lbs on an XL frame, sans big-ole headlamp



    DT Swiss XS 4.2D rims, DT Swiss Revolution spokes
    Hope II hubs
    Michelin Dry2 dual compound tires
    SRAM X.0 rear derailleur, gripshift
    SRAM PG990 cassette, Shimano XTR chain
    1x9 drivetrain up front, 32t
    N-Gear Jumpstop chain guide
    Answer Hyperlite carbon handlebar
    Token carbon bar ends
    Topeak carbon pump
    Cateye Strada Wireless cyclocomputer
    Karbona carbon bottle cage
    USE Alien carbon seatpost (not shown)
    Selle Italia SLR saddle
    56 LED headlamp, rear deflector
    CODA 140mm stem (first thing I added)





    I'm just about to upgrade the crankset and bottom bracket to something 180mm.

    2009 Scalpel

    This is my new bike. Does the weight seem high for the way it's set up?

    You could shave off some additional weight by changing the wheels, but 9,510 is very good IMO. Your stem on the other hand is waaaaayyyyyyyyyyy too high

    Nice. That color makes me miss my 2002 F700. One of my favorite colors because it just looks faster.

    My Scalpel 2 just came in, and it had the Fox version of the Carbon Speed SL version on it. Not to sure if i will bother to change it, as I really like the Fox damping system....

    My '06 1000.





    I've since changed the grips and pedals to crankbrothers eggbeater SL and overhauled the drivetrain w/ new rings, cassette, chain, and cables. It has been a great bike the 2+ years I've had it.

    For myself in the same situation, I got much better handling by replacing the si stem with the extended steerer tube with spacers and a 120mm 5 degree stem above the spacers, as opposed to the higher rise stem in the picture. It is a little heavier, but worth it imo. I can't fully explain the geometry/physics, but I know that with the 120mm high rise stem, I felt much more likely to go over the bars on steep drops. With the taller steerer tube and 5 degree stem, everything just feels right. I am thinking that it has to do with the fact that the weight forces from the stem are transfered to the bike further back (because of course the steerer tube is at an angle, so connecting the stem at a higher point also moves it further behind the front axle. You might think that you could get the same results by using a shorter high rise stem, but I've tried it, and while that did fix the over the bars tendancy, it kind of ruined the steering. I never could get the handling and feel right until I got the longer steerer tube, which feels great.

    I think the better handling of taller steerer / head tubes for tall riders is also supported by the fact that Cannondale has chosen to produce the XL Rize with a taller headtube and a special lefty. I really hope that in the future the will do this for the XL sizes of the Scalpel and Taurine.

    I spy a dork disc!

    Just kidding albert, those look cool, seems like they would help keep the pivots in nice working condition down on the seat stay.
