    26




    i went back to the scalpel 26 from my scalpel 29. Scalpel 29 was an amazing bike, the best 29 full suspension, but my local trails are faster and more fun on the 26. I have a set of 650b i9 wheels being build right now for when I travel and ride rougher trails.

    I'm glad to see another rider going back to a 26". When my last bike was starting to become too fragile to ride along our favorite trail I started trying out 29ers mostly because several have shown up in our group over the last three or so years. Granted the 29ers roll over the rougher portions of our trail very well but they are not nearly as agile as the 26ers. I enjoyed the 29ers however the 26" scalpel shown in the post above has turned out to be the best bike for me and that trail. I've observed several 29ers go off the trail at switchbacks and didn't enjoy those parts of the trail myself while on a 29er, That's the great thing about this sport, there are many different types of riders and bikes.

    UPDATE AFTER RIDING FOR 1 WEEK.....

    No doubt it's the best performing bike I've ever ridden.
    I luv the suspension and the stiffness of the frame. It tracks extremely precise.
    Climbs better than any bike I've ridden. That lefty shock is absolutely AWESOME!!!
    The linear progression of the lefty shock (so smooth) and balance of the suspension.

    23lb 1oz- Weight fluctuated between 23lb and 23lb 1oz
    Lost 1lb after the following change...
    XTR rear derailer
    XTR brakes
    XX cassette
    Esi grips
    Shimano PD-M530
    Removed shifter for 2x10
    Stans No tubes kit (used stans tape due to sealing issues on forum for tire and rim sealing issues)
    Awaiting to go 1x10..e*13 on the way

    THIS BIKE HAS EXCEEDED ALL MY EXPECTATIONS!!!

    Cannondale Scapel One and Ultimate has always been my dream bike but my LBS is overpricing the bike so much that it is putting off many potential buyer in my country.


    Nice thread and photos. Cheers and safe riding.

    Torque29er,

    Awesome bike! I just demo'd a scalpel 1 this past weekend and was really impressed. I loved the precision of the lefty. Brakes were one of the few things I thought could change and you got that handled. Keep us updated on your impressions of the bike

    So far the bike has totally excided ALL my expectations.
    I've owned quite a few bikes and none have overwhelmed me like this one. It just does everything extremely well. The front suspension is AWESOME

    I've never experienced a front suspension actually work the way is was theoretically designed to work as well as this one. Since there's little or no binding in the front shock, the progressiveness of the shock doesn't create a critical point where you experience an abrupt shift in transfer of weight nor a decrease of forward momentum as you experience in a conventional fork. Many of the trails here have large roots and that's one particular area where it really shines. On uneven terrain, the dual stanchion forks can bind when high frontal forces are applied such as a sudden impact from a root or large rock, as the shock goes through its travel. That's one of the benefits if the lefty, it can occur but at a much less significant rate preventing "that forward shift in weight" thus allowing the bike to keep its forward momentum. and possibly keeping you from going over the handle bars.
    That's almost an unfair advantage.

    Sorry guys...didn't have much time. Swapped the Enve bar and Fizik post for lighter alternatives. Normally run Race Golds but thought I'd try the Enve wheels and am very impressed how stiff they are. With lighter tires the Enve's are still about 100grams heavier than the Golds, plenty stiffer, though.

    Also it came with Hollowgram single 36t ring and spider with fresh MRP direct mount chain guide...

    Pedals and tubeless - 21.5lbs

    Here are a few more....

    The sponsored team riders can barely get their hands on the 13' fork. I dont think any consumers will be seeing them for a long time.

    Nice pics! Probably a daft question but do 650b wheels fit on a 26" wheeled frame? (is there enough clearance front and rear - for the lefty fully compressed etc.?)
