Almost in shock. For once in a long time, a company's marketing is actually backed up by on-trail performance. I'm talking about the SAVE sections on the Flash carbon I tested. Rode 3 high-end carbon 29er HT today, and the Flash's SAVE was the big difference. I'm not a Cdale fan by any stretch of the imagination, but everything about the Flash 2 was so nice. I even liked the handlebar which seems to be a negative comment voiced repeatedly in the reviews. The weight may be big but the bend and width fit me.
Too bad the shop only had a medium 2. I want the medium 3 with upgraded Crest wheels. And maybe a new bar or post.
My other finalist (Scott Scale Pro 29er) is just as difficult to find so I may be waiting a while no matter what.
