    Europeans get different C'Dales!

    Just been looking at the UK specific Cannondale website and we have three models of the Carbon Rush ie a Rush 1, 2 and 3.
    We don't however get the option of a Caffeine 29er , which I was quite interested in.

    My LBS is however getting a Carbon Rush as a demo bike and I can't wait to get my hands on it

    I fear that my credit card is going to take a beating...

    We have the OPTION of a lower spec ie three models of Carbon Rush as opposed to just the two Stateside.

    A good thing I think as we can get the Carbon bike at a lower price and upgrade when necessary ;-)

    That said I'll bet they are much cheaper in the US anyhow :-(

    Isn't everything in the UK over priced?
    I'm not in the EU but not state side either and can tell ya that the price you pay for a prophet 4 in the states is what we in New Zealand pay for a prophet 6... That blows!

    same deal in europe mainland
    A 1000$ stateside cannondale would be +-1500 overhere
    + considering 1 = 1,2$ it is even more a ripoff...

    if not for costums costs you would be better off making a short trip to usa buy your bike there and return with the bike, even then you would be cheaper off...
