    Great Scalpel

    Rek- that is one great bike. It is in awesome condition and I love the retro font on the Cannondale paint- it reminds me a lot like the 2007 Cannondale Team font/paint scheme I have seen shots of. Enjoy and congrats.

    Thanks Wick The frame actually has a fair few scratches from cable rub and the like.. the previous owner abused the poor thing and treated it like a beater; when I bought it, the drivetrain was completely shot and its headshock was dead. It was the first year of the Scalpel, this one has aluminium (not thermoplastic) seatstays and the old three-piece shock link. And CAAD5 type tubes, not the lighter Optimo ones.

    I bought it insanely cheap though! It's been a wonderful bike after rebuilding it, and yes, I love the black paint job with the older style lowercase decals. The only thing that looks better is the "BBQ" colour black Scalpel 3000

    My new frameset has a light/dark brown fade colour ('05 Scalpel 1000; a few of the photos here have it). Looks nice, will match well with the mud it'll have all over it in short order

    Having two Scalpels around is going to tear me apart -- do I really need to sell one to recoup the money spent, or should I do a "Bad Boy" conversion on one of 'em instead

    Custom scalpel 2500

    Hi,

    This is my scalpel. The frame was custom painted after a frame exchange, and all the components are custom too. Originally it was a 1000, now it is more a 2500

    cranks are old square-taper from CODA on FSA Ultimax, but they work.

    I have both of Magura SL rotors, but front just doesn't work like it should, so I changed it to old one, whitch works. SL looks better thou. but I need performance.

    Still, they look great.
    I've had good square taper 5-arm compact carbon cranks, but I broke the left arm on Saturday. So now I'm back on ISIS cranks. Temporarily, I hope.

    Hello all,

Enjoy, and please ask questions!

    Weight?

    For those of you with S or M sized Scalpel Team Replicas, what is the weight of the bike? I'm trying to decide between the Scalpel and the Taurine...

    Thanks.

    2007 Scalpel 1

    Basically I just ordered the frame and built it up myself with whatever bits'n pieces I had . Shown here set up with SRAM XO trigs + XO RD , SRAM X-Gen FD , Avid BB7s (I do plan on upgrading these in the future but these do the job for now) , Truvativ crank with XT cassette , Maxxis Larsen TTs on Mavic XM819s , Fizi:k saddle on Thompson Elite and Ti Eggbeaters .

    My Scalpel with training wheels after I just built it!

    The wheels are 32 hole Mavic Open Pro CD's on XTR hubs laced with DT Revolution spokes.

    really nice bikes you guys got going here. kiwi, a question. did you replace the crank, shifters, gears and brakes from what came stock, or is this the stock setup where you are? the brakes just had me puzzled the first time i saw the bike. do you prefer mechanical or what?

    Hey Klink .

    I basically went the cheap route and bought only the frame and then built the thing up myself with spare parts and components I had in stock for my other bikes . Do you think I should upgrade the brakes? These BB7s do an ok job for my purposes but they're getting a bit "old" if you know what I mean . Which do you recommend, mech or hydraulic? Kind of a newbie to the disk brake world so I'm open to any suggestions, particular from a fellow C'dale fan .
    Cheers mate.

    The only mechanical disc worth using are the Avid BB serie so the upgrade would be to go Hydraulic. BB7 are very ON/OFF feeling, not much modulation. They don't have anything to envy hydraulics for power though I think. They are heavy too.

    Cheap and easy to deal with hydraulics are Shimano. The XT can be found for cheap and the 2008 XT have a new very cool feature called servo-wave. Basically, the pads are further away from the rotor when not braking and their travel is regressive, fast at first so they quickly touch the rotor when you apply them, slower then to keep their great modulation. The result, rub free brakes!

    I will maybe do as you did over the winter, start with a 2008 scalpel frame and build it up. I want to make it very nice and light though so I'm looking at the super light brakes and as of now, my top choice is the Formula Oro Puro. Not cheap but they are light and have heard only good things about them. Only thing bugging me is they don't have a 140mm rear rotor option like the Shimano XTR, Avid Ultimates and Hope Mono Mini... You can check their other, cheaper models too, they all are the same powerful great brakes, even the DH models. Only difference is the Puros have a carbon lever, Ti bolts. The basic model doesn't have the lever travel adjustment.

    I don't like Avid hydraulic brakes even though they are very popular, too many people have had too many bugs for too long with the pulsing, vibrating, noisy Juicy 7 for me to give them a chance.

    Magura Martas are good too...

    man, don't get me wrong. your specs prob work fine. i'm not trying to tell you otherwise. just couldn't figure out why the specs were that way and forgot to think about you getting a frame and building it up, so i asked. by the way, did you edit the text in that post or are my reading skills somewhat lacking?

    concerning the brakes, i have never tried mech disc brakes, so i have no idea about their performance. if you like em keep em. if you wanna try some hydraulic brakes, formula brakes are pretty much the cream of the crop. i'm very happy with my formula oro k24 on my commencal and my formula extreme fr on my prophet. their k18s are pretty much the same brake as the k24, just without the extra adjustibility, but still pretty lightweight and with tons of braking power.

    and dan, 140mm discs? is that enough? coming from a guy with 180mm disc on both of mine.

    No worries mate

    Yeah the bike seems to run pretty well so far with what I got on it . But I am thinking seriously about what kind of brakes I should upgrade to in the future . It looks like mine are a tad on the heavy side and probably don't have as much braking power as hydraulic brakes. So I basically want what's best for my new ride . She deserves it .

    However, there's no real hurry in getting a new set soon and I kind of enjoy and appreciate this time to discover and learn what's out there on the market from talking to experienced users on the trail and of course and especially from you gentlemen here on this forum.

    I realise that my decision is dependent on what conditions I often ride in, how I ride my bike and of course how much cash I can fork out . I guess something around the $300 price bracket is viable (just don't tell my wife...) .

    Anyway, big thanks for your input and yours too Dan . You blokes ROCK ! Cheers mates.

    good to hear that you have a 300 budget as you can get the k18 for roughly 280 with 160mm discs front and rear and the k24 for roughly 360 with the same disc set up from www.universalcycles.com . you just add everything you want in the cart then write " vip15 " in the coupon slot, press the "add coupon" botton and save 15% since it's an over 300 bucks purchase. it's an affordable and easy to use site, even if it's not visually very advanced or pleasing. one just needs a paypal account, i think. oh, and add shipping to the prices above. dunno how much that would be, and if you're none us based prob some tax fees too.

    and take your time. if you're happy with the bb's keep em longer. the bb weigh in at 360 to 400 grams a pop i think with the disc and it's not like the formulas are that much lighter, if even at all. ops, wrong, the bb7s are heavier since the weight of the string and levers aren't included in the weight i stated above. hm, ends up being a really nice upgrade. killer brakes and 2-400grams off. oh well. no rush eh.

    ok sorry, i'll stop spaming the post your scalpel post now. sorry, ;-)

    Depends how and where you ride and your weight I guess... I run 160mm Hope two-piece rotors with XT brakes on my Prophet but if I go the Scalpel route, I want it light. Since the Oro are more powerful than my current XT setup and that the front brake is more important than the rear to me, I think a 140mm rotor at the back would be enough and save a few grams (lighter rotor, lighter IS adaptor)...

    But I may end up with two 160mm rotors since it's simpler. Get the brakes, get the front and rear 160mm kits instead of getting the brakes, a front 160 kit, a second front 160mm adaptor to use in the back and a 140mm rotor from someone else...

    Go with the Mag Martas with Stan's rotors and Stan's wheels. Don't waste your money to get the Marts SL though, the only difference is the carbon lever times 2 which is 14 grams. The only draw back with the Alum rotor, is that they seem to hum when used with crossmax wheels. So I run steel rotors on my Crossmax wheels and Alum on my regular spoked wheels. I weigh 180 lbs and with the 140 rotor on back I only notice a braking issue once in a while and I think I should just lose another 10-15 lbs anyway. I don't know about in Canada, but here is USA, Formula parts are non existent. So if you go that route, just make sure you keep an extra complete brake in the parts box in case you need it.

    Not a big fan of Stan's stuff, very light but not durable enough for my tastes so no Stan's wheels or rotors for me. I need a bike that can stand up to more than the occasional races... It would be a light racy bike but it will see some nastier trail use.

    Martas are another option but they seem to be less trouble free than the Formulas. I'll see, it's still a project, nothing's ordered yet.

    These choices are 95 percent feel for the rider and we're all so different. I only ride the Stan's wheels on trails that I know very well and races. I do find the Alum rotors to be equal in performance and lighter than steel. If you go with the Formula let me know what you think.

    easy. the best way to do it is to make so that when the shifter is set to be on the smalest chainring, you set the front derailleur to be over the midle chainring. so when the shifter is on number one, the front derailleur is on number two. and when the shifter is on number two, the front derailleur is on number three. then you just stop the front derailleur do go higher with the adjusting skrew. do when you try to go to number three on the shifter, the front derailleur says stop.

    hope you understood what i ment, my english isn´t the best.
