    My 2015 Scalpel Team came with Centerline Rotors (??) Just unsure how they stack up against the HSX?

    They even had a rack with several sets of Lefty specific ENVE M50's in green for an instant upgrade- so tempting

    Haha- good eye, that shot was at their Pasadena Store. I drove 8 hours (from Northern Cal) to buy a Scalpel, none of my LBS carries these bikes.

    My previous Scalpel and Trigger 29er Team were purchased @ Helens Cycles in Beverly Hills area and Santa Monica.

    Wow, No Cannondale LBS at your area ?
    Hopefully you won't need any warranty service any time soon.

    Incycle Pasadena is an Excellent Shop that takes good care of their customers A+++
    I got my Flash and Scalpel there.

    Can't race a bike that is always under warranty service

    Here is my second (going on third) warranty replacement 2015 Scalpel Team. Loads of problems with the Monarch shock on both bikes, a cracked top tube on the first, and a misaligned linkage on the second. I have a 2012 Scalpel 1 that has been excellent, but the 2015 bikes have some serious quality control issues.

    Post your Scalpel!!!!-20150725_153110%5B1%5D.jpg

    Bummer... Beautiful but defective
    what issues are you having with the Monarch ?
    I just replaced my 2012 Scalpel 29Spongy Fox shock with the XX full sprint with Xlock
    Hopefully the shock will not exhibit same issues as you are having with the Monarch

    I am also on my second monarch shock. My 2015 Scalpel Team had issues with the switch and shock as well. My XX brakes were also replaced because they had issues with the levers. I feel that is is more of a quality control issue with Rockshox/SRAM.

    Bummer- Hope issues are only with the Rockshox system rather than the frame-

    I have a 2015 Scalpel 29 Carbon 3. The chain broke after about its first 20 miles of riding. The bike shop called it a "wear & tear" part and I had to buy a new chain. It sure didn't take much wear & tear to break a new chain. The replacement is just fine.

    I was looking at the blue one at the same Pasadena location since the green one is way too much for my budget.

    Zomby Woof: That bike shop should have replaced it especially after just 20 miles and spending thousands on that bike. Not cool...

    The first bike had many issues with the sprint lockout & shock. A second monarch was sent, and took a couple bleeds before it worked properly. It lasted about three hundred miles before it started acting up again, but by that time, my top tube cracked.

    Cannonadale was awesome, and replaced the entire bike, since I was having some issues with the BB as well. The second bike took all winter to arrive, and the Monarch needed to get sent back to Sram right out of the box. The lockout on the second (4th total) Monarch for bike number two worked fine after a bleed, but the shock totally failed after less than 30 hours of ride time.

    Installation of a new Fox Float didn't go so well, as the linkage either had play, or would migrate a couple millimeters towards the non-drive side after it had been pressed and torqued into place. My local Cannondale dealer had consulted tech support as to how to center the linkage, but the problem persisted. Cannondale immediately offered to send a new frame when they were contacted a second time by my LBS.

    Cannondale has been good about honoring their warranty, but this garbage has been ongoing for the past nine months. It's doubtful that I will be able to race a 2015 Scalpel before the snow flies in the fall, because every claim is a drawn-out series of delays. If the next frame does not hold up, I'll be done with Cannondale forever.

    It's all in their master plan! It's so guys like you and I get so pissed about our favourite bike being in bits on race day that we buy one of their expensive hard tail XC bikes as back up
    And then we buy one of their all mountain bikes to train on, so we look after our XC bikes
    Then our LSB says you should own a road bike as not to get mud and grit on your mtb bike "and you know you sholdnt wash your cannondale mtb, that's why the bearings are not lasting" ! WTF
    Got ya by the balls

    I've raced every race this season on my 2012 Scalpel 1, which is my "training bike". They must have decided on this for 2015.

    Crap- I had already fallen in their master plan-
    Actually I got the Scalpel as a back up for my Trigger 29er- loving the Trigger- ~9 Months so far with zero issues

    Hopefully Cannondale has corrected the issues with their 2015 Team Bike as I would hate to change to the 2016 paint scheme

    They are way too overpriced. If I was going to get a $4000 bike I would get something else.
    But still, it's sad to see another 29er go.

    This is exactly what was going on. Seems to be an issue with many of the 2014-15 bikes.

    Post your Scalpel!!!!

    My 2012 Scalpel Carbon 1 is getting a warranty frame replacement (cracked at on the seat tube near the bottom bracket). The recent ones the bike shop has been getting in are green and black. Would I get a 2015 or 2016 frame... both appear to be some version of green. Hopefully a 2016 because my white wheels and saddle are going to look stupid on a frame that is 50:50 green:black.

    It depends. A couple weeks ago Cannondale sent me a warranty replacement frame for my 2015 Scalpel team. It was a previously built red/silver frame from a 2015 Scalpel 3 that had been stripped of all but the front derailleur. I was a bit irritated by this, and complained bitterly to my local shop. A team green frame arrived recently. Don't expect anything great from Cannondale, although their heart seems to be in the right place.

    Can someone do me a favour and post a picture of a 2015 Scalpel Alloy 4 in size XL. Considering picking one up - but wanting to see what the bike looks like in size XL as there are often tube changes at this size.

    so i found an XL carbon frame. the carbon and alloy have the same basic shape. the carbon frames are a bit smoother around the joints. Sorry not exactly what you asked for but close. Post your Scalpel!!!!-s-l1600.jpg

    Nope. Hopped a little table top. No big deal. When the backside transitioned to flat I heard a loud crack and turned left into the woods.

    That looks like a compression failure not a stress failure. Did you run into the tree afterwards?

    Yeah I slacked the frame right out of the box. The shop I bought it at did it for me.

    My LBS has taken care of the warranty claims for me through this whole debacle. They got me a new frame, but it will probably hang in the shop for the next five months, as it is unclear if a new rear shock was ever shipped. I won't be needing a new frame to break until snow biking/road riding season ends in May.
