    The Cannondale Bad Boy is a great, fast commute bike, that can also do LIGHT trails/paths, with the proper set of tires. Join the family and get one!

    I live in England and I have the Bad Boy Ultra which is really good. Pricey but worth the extra, especially the headlight which alone are worth around 250. If you need to know any specifics PM me.

    My wife and I have 2006 Bad Boy Ultras -- US version. We love them. We ride roads, canal paths, and even dirt paths with them. Remember, they're essentially cool-looking F600s with road wheels, so they're MTBs at heart and can take abuse. We recently rode our BBUs 1100kms through Thailand (paved and dirt roads) without a single problem.

    I like the Bad Boy Ultra as well, but keep in mind that tire clearance is limited if you are running anything but the stock tires. If you need bigger tires or fenders, consider the Rigid version.

    Not really. Here's mine on 26x2.3 Continental knobbies:

    And here's my wife's on the standard 700c x 28s:

    Yeah, you are totally safe with 26" wheels but my worries were based around the 700c version. Not too much room if you were going to make it an all weather commuter with fenders.

    For commuters, can you hop up and down sidwalk curbs, i.e. most anything urban riding will throw at you???

    Yep, but it would depend on how high you want to hop and how much you weigh. I have no trouble with the bike and curbs/potholes. I'm 6'0" and 180#.

    Tough call. I had an XL Specialized Hardrock before my XL Bad Boy Ultra. I'm 6", with a 34 inch inseam, and I like the fit of the XL. Are you not able to try before you buy?
