    Any Cannondale Rush owners here?

    This bike is on my shortlist (Rush Carbon 3) as the 2009 model is heavily discounted. I am interested to get some owner feedback.

    Thanks
    Dan

    You'll probably get more feedback in the Cannondale forum.

    Looks like Rush owners, US for 2010 anyways, are a dying breed. No US model offered and I don't like the swingarm and rocker link for the 2010 RZ, which is vaguely like my Trek Top Fuel.

    I like my Rush, but I think a Rize would be more fitting to my current riding style.

    I got a NOS 2008 Rush 4SL recently for a crazy price. Love it. It's my first FS bike and is fast, efficient and rides light. The only slight annoyance if you ride in rough country is the low BB and resulting pedal and crank impacts on rocks and roots. Otherwise I love it!

    That's a sweet ride. I like the low BB for stability in the rough stuff and shredding DH, but I ran into the pedal flop on the rocks too, especially when that suspension is working. I just adapt my riding style to fit.
    I just bought a new as used can get 2006 Rush 1000 and am very impressed with how it rides. I took a speculative chance with the Lefty DLR2 and haven't regretted it one bit. The fork is active and light. Love that the lockout is staring me right in the face, and I don't have to reach for it.
