    Looking for a good city/urban bike similar to Cannondale Bad Boy. Suggestions?

    I'm looking for a bike similar to the Cannondale Bad Boy which I just sold. It's time for something new but in the same category (commuting, road, light offroad). On the short list are the Specialized Sirrus, Trek DS and Cannondale CX series bikes. Must have disc brakes.

    Any other I should consider? Budget is anywhere up to $1800.

    Thanks in advance.

    First question - why did you sell your Bad Boy?
    The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.

    Nothing wrong with the BB, just time for a change. I tend to get bored of things and then buy something similar to fill its place. Therefore, my inquiry above.

    Scott Sub? This year's version doesn't work with my aesthetics, but I liked some of the previous models. The Sub 10 (in your price range) does the IGH/belt drive thing.

    Spot has some similar sorts of bikes, too. Most of their models are some variation on the flat bar city bike, except they have one mtb and one cx frame.

    BMC, Focus, and Cube have commuters with aggressive geometry.

    Agree....OP should have never sold the Bad Boy. If you really want something close to it but more versatile in dirt - get a CX disc bike....plain and simple. Kill TWO BIRDS with one stone.
