    Update Already!

    Is Cannondale ever going to post the '08 lineup to their website? An '07 bike hasn't rolled off the line in months. Specialized has posted their entire lineup for '08 while Cannondale has just a few road bikes.

    What's the deal?

    Are they building anything? I've been told by my LBS First week of Oct for an F5, MIDDLE of Nov for an F4. Of course I'm looking for an '08 F4 so it's a bit annoying.

    It's not a big deal per se. It's just annoying that the fans of this company are punished for it. Looking at scans of a catalogue is all well and good but I see no reason why they can't be more forthcoming with the lineup. What, they don't trust us? Shall I steal there designs and start selling copies on the streets of New York? I just don't understand what is to be lost.

    Edit. Oh and thanks for the link. That page links to the Cannondale home page but I can figure out how to navigate back to it from there.

    The big deal is the 2007s are largely unavailable and are more expensive than the 2008s and come with lesser components. The new F4 comes with hydraulic disk brakes and is $20 less than the current F4 for instance.

    Regarding the link

    At the top of the 2008 page there is a button for "home" which takes you to the front page of the Cannondale website. Generally, in website design, you can navigate to and from pages within the same companies website without having to type a specific URL or, in this case, link from an outside source. I cannot figure out how to link to the 2008 list from the Cannondale front page.

    K Thx

    It's because the 2008 site is not yet officially online...

    It's not, when it is, you will be able to access it from the site's main homepage.

    How long does it take to put online the euro site? Come on Cannondale, if you have not got any '07 bikes left, get them off the website and get the '08's up.

    The voice used in the new Scalpel video is so dramatic!

    The bad boys this year are very disappointing. All the lower spec bad boys have been upgraded to a spec near the ultra but the ultra has not been upgraded at all. Effectively the ultra has been downgraded because of the lack of upgrade.

    Euro or US Bad boys? What upgrades would you want?

    The Euro, the point I am making is that the lower range bad boys have been upgraded with components that are nearer to the '08 ultra. This means that ultra has practically stayed the same as last year but the price is still the same as last years. Surely this should have been reduced in price? The gap between bottom and top has been closed but not price.

    OK, so the new page is up, but it shouldn't be. There are misspellings; Tourine insead of Taurine in many locations. The 29er page show the eccentric BB for every model. Formatting looks incomplete. Also, Cannondale apparently decided to not list prices this year after listing them on the 2007 page. It looks like it was rushed a bit.
