    Post your Scalpel!!!!

    A sticky thread for the Prophet but not for the Scalpel. Whats up with that? Just wondering before I head out on a ride on my Jekyll. Here's my ride in front of my 2004 Nissan Frontier. One reason I bought this truck is to load around my bikes and hit the junk yard.

    Dude my weighs in at 24.5 lbs. Believe once I get a new wheel set it will be light. It's light already. I'm happy with it so far.

    The more complicated it is, the more that can go wrong.

    Got my scalpel 2 days ago after 8 month of waiting!! Sadly not in the colour i have ordered. But i also like the team frame, not so much as the green one, but what.....
    An order thing to worry about is that they but the wrong fork (lefty alu) on it, so i have to wait 2 weeks to get the Carbon lefty speed.

    Sweet ride there! What's with the fork? Why doesn't it have the Speed Carbon fork. The Scalpel 2000 I ordered is at the shop being built now. I wonder if mine came with the Speed. What I'm asking is, did you get an explanation to why it has the wrong fork on it. I've read a few threads about some problems that are arising with the Speed fork. I wonder if they are putting the production of it on hold until the problems are worked out. i'm going to go have a look at the bike tomorrow, but it won't be ready 'til next week some time. This mechanic is very very meticulous I hear. Hopefully it will prove to be worth all of the waiting.

    I also have ordered the Scalpel 2000 in green, but it didn�t come. So i change the CD dealer and this man built me up the team frame with the parts like the 2000 has. The fork problem was not the guilt of Cannondale, but the fault of the CD dealer. I hope I have not to wait that long for the Lefty Carbon!
    After my first ride yesterday the smile in my face doesn�t disappear - i love this bike, and then with Carbon Lefty....

    My new Scalpel

    My F3000sl developed a couple of cracks one in the chainstay and one in the seatstay, this Scalpel frame was my replacement from Cannondale. I also used the upgrade program for the Lefty Speed Carbon. Comes in at 23.6 lbs.

    I still think Scalpels are one of the coolest looking bikes out there. I would like to really get a chance to ride one rather than merely do a parking lot test..

    WOW for the Scalpel

    Trevor you will be WOW when riding one for a long period of time. It's flatout a great bike. I've only had my for a few months and really love it. It's old days MTN bike. When MTN bikes only had 2 inches of travel. But with stable platform technology and way more developed bikes it's not like riding a new 1993 MTN bike. It's much more fun.

    Nice Scalpelcannon

    I really like the set up on your new baby. She looks great. Nice wheelset. I'll be putting on some trick wheels next season. Right now I'm saving up for a killer new wheelset for my roadbike. Otherwise enjoy your Scalpel.

    I'll have to get a better picture without the garage explosion behind the bike, this will do for now.
    Looks even better than I imagined it would.

    Nice, don't forget to put something to protect the driveside chainstay from chain hits and rub... What tires have you got on there?

    I threw on a lizard skin velcro wrap that was on my Enduro for now.
    The tires are Contintental Explorer 2.1s. The Python Lights had some issues with warping or something, and I couldn't even confirm if they were "Lights" as advertised since that word was nowhere to be found on the tire, so the LBS switched them out for these.
    I'm hoping they'll be a better all-conditions tire and will last a little longer.
    I had them add some Stan's while at the shop.

    The bike actually weighed 26+ lbs. on the digital scale before I took off the reflectors, etc. A little more than I expected.

    Don't worry about the weight on a scale, once you'll throw your leg over that bike and hit the trails, you'll see what it's all about - speed, agility and fun! I had the chance to try one for a quick ride not long ago, same thing: medium black 05 Scalpel 2000 (with Python Tubeless Light and Eggbeater pedals tough) and it's really a bike that was designed to go fast, the limit is the rider. Have fun.

    Nice scalpels, now I am coveting one

    Is the scalpel good for mountain bike racing?
    I have a triathalon coming up and there is a 9 mile mountain bike race for the biking.
    I am thinking my dual suspension will bob too much and my marin hardtail is heavy

    The RACE BIKE!!

    Yippee!!!
    I saw one for sale at Placid Planet in Lake Placid and then I fell in love with it.
    That one is the 900 and is the sobe color I love.
    It is 2 years old and "never used" with dirty tires.

    I think I may have to visit my LBS and see their lineup

    I think August is sale season too????

    scalpels

    Okay my LBS has sold out of scalpels.
    So I will order one, it will take a week.
    I was thinking the scalpel 2000.
    My LBS says $3299.99
    Now I need to pick out the color.
    I have never ordered a new bike before, what else should I consider?

    Get the black 05 then, very nice! I don't know when the 06 will be released but the Scalpel remain unchanged as far as I know (probably just the colors and a few specs like tires and such) and who knows how long it will take to get to you once it is released...

    When ordering a new bike, you might check if some parts are not to your liking and maybe ask the shop to swap some. Tires and pedals are popular switch, the tires to match the local conditions you ride in and pedals... well, a lot of people just hate SPD's...
