    Rize 5 pics if anyone is interested

    Turns out the Brighton Evans is a lot more cooperative than the HQ, so I asked if they had a Rize and they said they had the 5 boxed and offered to whip it together so I could take a look so here it is, sorry about the blurry ones.

    Damn nice bike but their isnít any kit I would keep apart from the tires and maybe the cranks for a while.

    This is for the value hunters not us elitists with Leftyís or rather Foxís for me, £1299 is a great price for a bike and a pile of kit, itís not even a dreadful frame price.

    It's looks like they are still using that FSA 2081 (boat achor, 308 gr) for handle bars too. At least they have a phyical bike availible.

    My Easton Monkeylite XC came in at 165 gr and I only paid $110 for them. Better than the $1 gr weight savings and the ride has a much smoother feel.
    Lead by my Lefty............... right down the trail, no brakes.

    Looks good. The white adds a certain class....

    To quote Anchorman: "You stay classy, Cannondale. I'm Ron Burgundy?"

    These are the best pictures of the aluminium frame that I have seen so far and the frame really looks good. Thank you for posting. The only thing I never really liked is the double CD-writing.

    What a shame that there is no Rize version with an aluminium frame in combination with a Lefty available in Europe like the US-Rize 3. The 'cheapest' EU-Rize with a Lefty is the Rize Carbon 2 which is listed in Germany for 5499 Euros (not USDs !!!) and although a discount is likely this is definitely too much. Apart from that I still would prefer an aluminium frame for a trail and all-mountain bike. One of the advantages of a Cannondale frame is the possibility to go with a stiff and durable Lefty. Without using this option a CD frame is at best just one among many superb frames available. I hope that CD will offer such an aluminium Rize/Lefty version in the EU in the future.

    Yes sir! And if as people are saying the geometry is similar to the Rush, a Large would fit me perfectly, Cannondale and Trek both seem to know what they are doing with sizing which is something I like.

    Thats an insane price. I would have guessed with the super weak USD that the bikes would be relatively affordable.

    Go to their website to see the US version; lefty. Nice ride, the 1 is three grand higher than the 3. It's 3 pounds lighter, expensive pounds
