    Where's all the hype about the RIZE????

    Sure the prophet was ahead of it's time, still one of the class leaders and I love mine.

    Designing the replacement for a bike as successfull as the prophet must have been a daunting task, and explains the time gap between them.

    But just as I was about to jump ship for a trance xo, bedford comes through with the RIZE.

    The prophet created a new category and so will this bike, which leads me to my question; where is all the RIZE HYPE????

    maybe when the spring conditions take effect we will see a Rize marketing push. But do you needs the marketing hype to convince you its a great ride? Or are you just playing the Cannondale advocate like a lot of us tend to do from time to time?

    It's better for Cannondale and for consumers if the hype comes once the bikes are available in the stores...

    Nobody has go a hold of one of those suckers and put it on their bike yet. I hope Cdale doesn't dick us make it different mounting or something so we can't just toss one on our bike and roll.
    Lead by my Lefty............... right down the trail, no brakes.

    Well Iím hyper, but obviously they donít want to start the hype themselves just in case there is a major problem with the bike or if we are under the influence of the Devil (Beelzebub) and the bike may suck.

    Beginning of may is what bedford said today on the carbon 1 and 2, but presold orders will ship first so maybe a few will filter out before then.

    My local shop scored one. A Rize 4. It's an XL unfortunately so I can't buy it, but he's selling it for $1699. (JB Mountain Bikes in Reading, PA)

    Four bar FUBAR

    This Rize looks good, kinda of like a Motolite, however the hype is more piviots, means more service, means more complicated, means less reliable. The Prophet and Heckler are the two best all mountain designs ever. Sometimes, less is more.

    So are unicycles better than bicycles because they only have one tire to pump up? Maintaining the pivots on a bike is not a difficult task.

    apples and oranges

    Please, reliability, Yes. Wezz talking mountian bikes not circus performing equipment. Piviots are easy to maintain. With more piviots, more that can go wrong. Id rather keep two sets of berings than have to keep 6 to 8 different bearings.

    the fork will be interchangeable onto any other headshok/lefty ready c-dale. our rep rolled in with one yesterday and it had a lefty fox rlc. so the headset/lefty fit seems to be the same.
