    That's a Medium frame and it looks big in the room. I sat on a large Cannondale '29er before buying and knew I had to downsize a bit. This one fits my 5'11" height and 34 inseam fine.

    I gave it a quick half-hour spin around the snowy neighborhood streets today and it seems to have a solid in-the-bike feel about it. Nice handling. We shall see...

    SWEET. Absolutely beautiful. Hope it rides as nice as it looks. Cannondale does a great job with paint and color schemes.

    The Cannondale Flash was easily the best feeling carbon 29er I rode all last year. You will love it out on the trails. Have fun on it!

    Tony, I weighed it with Shimano M540 pedals on. 24.3 lbs give or take.

    i rode one last month in a 12 hour race. i liked it so much i posted a thread on here. i really think cannondale really did it righ with this bike. it rode so nice.

    i too am 5'11" and 34" inseam. but i thought a large felt great.

    i had to give the bike back too my dismay. congrats on you! what a sexy bike!

    tubeless?

    Can you run these rims tubeless? if you convert to 1x9 it will get much lighter

    ive got a flash2 on the way and im 6'3 with a 34-1/2 inseam and i went with a large the extra large frame had to much stand over for me. the 19 inch felt perfect. i got to ride a 2010 last summer for a day and just had to have one but the owner told me to wait for the 2011's as the geo change would be for the better. cannondale has really got it right with the 2011 bikes. although i think the 2010's had much better paint scemes i was lovin the jungle green and the raw aluminum flash3.
