    2020 CDale Fat Caad 1

    It's rigid but seems like a good value with SLX and a low Q factor (though I can't find the exact Q measurement). Thoughts?

    If it has a 160mm spindle the Q-factor should be 198mm. If a 166mm spindle it's 204mm.

    My 2017 Fat Caad 1 came with a (2X) 166 spindle for some reason. I swapped to the shorter (1X) one, but the NDS crankarm clearance is tight to the chainstay, but okay for me.

    But as a rigid bike, I would say it's nothing special...

    At that pricepoint, I'd tend toward a Growler Mr. Big Stuff, but I don't see it on their website at the moment... give 'em a call.

    Q factor is less on the Specialized Fatboy. Really nothing special about the Cannondale bike.

    They've killed the Lefty, so Chinanndale is now officially about as special as a Mongoose, Trek, GT, Specialized, Schwinn, Giant, Pacific, or any other Asian sourced, mass produced tripe.

    Growlers are now being made state side, I'd give them my $, absolutely.

    I'm sure they are THAT much betterer than all of the others you mention.

    You do you.

    None of those (if they even make a fatty) are made state side, which while not groundbreaking, is certainly more green, if nothing else at all...
