    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.

    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...

    Is it better to give tape on it instaed of using screws? Is it because of the weight of the screws?

    Great Bike/Scalpel

    Very Nice Scalpel Dr. Power- those Hope components look great, nice craftsmanship! What year and model is that? Are the Brad Blog and other custom paint additions your own work? Enjoy your ride.

    The wheels are 2005 xyclones from spinergy, the cranks are the same as the good boy cranks.
    They are made for the 30th anniversary of Cannondale. see Jekyll good boy: http://www.cannondale.com/bikes/02/ce/model-2GB.html
    The Rotors are from A2Z. the front is a 180mm and the rear rotor is 160mm.

    at this picture you can see the Cannondale 30th anniversary logo on the crankarm:

    Lovely bikes ladies and gents. Will probably get my Scalpel 1000/2000 next spring. Until then I've made a wallpaper in photoshop so I can drewl lots and lots through the nasty winter.


    For a bigger picture, go here
    Give me a gun and I will sell it.
    Give me a knife and I will sell it.
    Give me a popcorn bag and I will nuke it.
    Is that a crime ?

    Super Ultra BadBoy scalpel

    I have mine set up like a street machine with 700 x 30c cross tires.
    Works great for street use and light off-road.
    I just recieved a RUSH 1000 to handle any all-mountain duties now.

    Got it yesterday and she is ready to go

    this makes my 3rd scalpel and I don't think I will stray again. First ride is tomorrow. It is pretty much bone stock right now but upgrades to follow.

    Just take an old inner tube cut it lengthways slap it around the chainstay and button it down with zip ties. Takes 5 minutes, and it's basically free, also it works great.

    My friend's Scalpel came with a Cannondale neoprene protector... You can also use a Lizard Skin but yeah, an old tube works just fine.

    I run the same Spinergys......

    I know many have given some Spinergy products a bad rap in the past, but these Xyclone disc for Lefty rims are trick!! I have used a pair for exactly 1 year and they have such a awesome feel in the turns, they pull out of tight turns under power incredible, no windup. I have 2 pair of CrossMax SLs and they have a twingy metallic feel compared to the light spinergys.

    I totally agree the Spinergy wheels have super flex compared to the xmax's. I run my Spinergy's with a carbon lefty which is equipped with a titanium spindle & that also flex's a load more than the current 2005/06 alloy typo spindle's.
    Enjoy!!!

    I got a total of 19 miles on the headshok before I had to send it back to the tech shop @ cannondale. my shop rebuilt it 3 times and could only get it to hold air for 2 hours at best. at least I am riding but I ordered the 900 specifically for the headshok. (I like the lefty but I like the headshok better). Maybe cannondale can figure out what the hell is wrong with it, I have never had a problem with a headshok until this one.

    2006 Scalpel 3000

    My Scalpel, I've been riding the Scalpel more lately than my Prophet, have seriously enjoyed the bike- had a few paint bubbles on frame, but as my wife says- only God is perfect. Otherwise paint job very nice. Have been impressed with carbon lefty, Fox float and XTR components very intuitive.

    Sure will. I've had the bike a week now and haven't been able to ride, on the trails that is. The Maxxis Larson TT's aren't meant for 1/2 ft of snow. I'm looking at Kenda Nevegals but I'm having a hard time finding them in the tubeless. I run Stans in my Conti tires on my Canny F700 and it's awesome stuff. I once did a several foot drop and broke the bead and before I could say Oh **** it fixed itself and I kept on riding. Sounded like a .22 caliber firing when it let loose. Everybody in the group got a big laugh out of that that day.

    Very nice Slyboots

    That is one cool Scalpel- I must say those cranks and other carbon are nifty/and the blue is sweet. Where did you find the matching fox cover/protector have you used one before-what are your impressions? Enjoy.

    Yeah, I was extreamly lucky to buy the cranks. They are carbon, 5-bolt compact and square taper. Everything I could dream of. If that was not enough - I got them for about $70. )
    The fox cover is a "lizard skins" one. I guess it's not a rare item. I just cut it so, that there is no LS logo anymore. The cover is Ok, I have used some on my forks before.

    Your bike is the most gorgeus Scalpel I've seen. Don't change to Fox from the beatiful DT. Lovely pics also.

    Any thoughts on the 2006 900? It's within my price range, and I'm also considering the F800; main difference, apart from being fs, would be the lack of lefty. 30mm less travel on headshok, but add in fs (with propedal no less!) and optimo frame and sram components (which I'd want on F800 anyway).... Think it'd be worthwhile to get scalpel minus lefty? :S

    I'm impressed with all these beautifull scalpels. I liked so much the dt rear shock for this bike and the look with 700c cross wheels is so agressive.
    I've tested one and I am in love with this bike, someday I'll have one.

    I attended my first MTB race in Texas a couple of months ago and my girlfriend and I volunteered to work as course marshalls so that we could get involved and see some good action. Here are a few of the photos I took. Plenty of Scapels in the race! There were apprx 488 entries.

    thanks for compliment, Sly! The young fella in green jersey finished in second place, but I forgot what class he was in. I was using an inexpensive Olympus shooting low res, and it was raining or drizzling on morning so I had an umbrella in one hand most of the time while I was working. Slow cams make it difficult to shoot action photos because shutter speed is so slow, you never know where subject will be when shutter operates.

    I'm not a photographer myself, I have nether talent nor passion for it.
    But I really like you photos, I think they transfer the action pretty good.

    Here's my Scalpel. The frame is an '02 Scalpel 800, but just about every part is upgraded (transplanted parts from my hardtail). About to do another swapsy-thing with an '05 Scalpel 1000, to get a newer style frame, RP3 rear shock, and Lefty DLR2.

    Forks: Fox Float L at the back, Lefty ELO Titanium at the front
    Drivetrain: Shimano XT (not rapidrise) with XTR rear mech
    Crank: new style Shimano XT
    Brakes: Avid Juicy 7
    Wheelset: DT 240s/Cdale Lefty hubs, DT XR4.1d rims, DT Supercomp spokes (VERY light and strong. Recommended!)
    Other bits: Easton EC70 seatpost and handlebar, Polar S625X HRM/speedo thingy
