    I know itīs a 12 mm but it is the quick release or how does it work to take the rear wheel our?

    thanks
    You can use the same tool which you use for your seatclamp. I am not sure what it is in English, but I think a hextool? Looks like a torx...

    But you can replace it with a DT-Swiss quick release if you whish...

    Thanks heumena. That is what I wanted to know. If itīs possible to replace it with dt quick release. I think itīs kind of strange not having a quick release if you are racing and you have to carry "hextool" every time with you. Especialy if you are using tubes.

    Cero, I just took delivery of a 2. Could do without the green, but otherwise I couldn't be happier.


    Heumena, did the cable position change require any change to length of the cable? The one that is currently on top of my downtube is the rear brake cable, and there is a little extra, so I don't anticipate any issues.

    Nope! The standard length is enough! See additional pic's:

    In English we call it an Allen Wrench and you will need one to remove the wheel. Not sure what MM size is required and I'm not home to check. Didn't know you could replace it with a quick release skewer, thanks for that info.

    Same problem here. The price for Scalpel 29er Carbon 2 and Epic 29 Expert Carbon is equal and I don't have an opportunity to test ride either one in the woods. Help, please

    Hi guys

    I'm having a test ride on a Scalpel next week, I am comparing it to a Scott Spark 29 Pro I rode last week.

    Can you tell me please, does the Scalpel 29 have cable routing for a dropper post as I would want to run a Reverb on mine if I did get one?

    Thanks

    Weights for the Carbon 1 and Carbon 2?

    Guys, many of you already got these sweeeet rides. The weights keep me wondering since there is quite a spread on the postings (forums and editorials). What is the weight of your bike, original specs and out-of-the-box? Cheers

    This is just with my bathroom scale, which is digital, but not exactly a calibrated scientific instrument. Scalpel 2, out of the box (with tubes and eggbeaters) was 24.8 (that's 8/10, not 8 oz). I'm not a weight weenie... almost went with aluminum, and think the Scalpel 3 is probably the value king.

    My 2 was 24.5 with tubes and no pedals. Look through the other scalpel thread, many people posted weights

    Thanks guys for your posts, the weights are about equal considering the pedals. The wheelset, post and saddle are probably the best weight shaving parts, or what do you think?

    Utah Joe: which thread you refer to?

    Thanks Joe, any riding experience on your Scalpel yet? I'm a bit torn between Epic and Scalpel and would appreciate any thoughts between the two.

    Hi guys,

    I do run a cannondale shop in Belgium, I have a scalpel 29 personal bike.
    I also changed the cable routing, even before i saw the topic, so i'm not alone
    1) What is the specialzed partnr for the cable router?

    2) I'm riding withe the headset spacer (KP213) below, the bike came like this.
    Now I see all your bikes with this ring on top. Does anyone has experience with both?

    Bye,
    Bruno
