    For my new bike today, it is the Cannondale Jekyll 1 Carbon. Here a picture that is not very accurate.

    Should be in around mid-November. Waiting sucks.

    Jeez, looks space age. How heavy is one of those spokes?

    You will love it, and go very fast up hill and down.

    Looks really high tech- makes my bike look like a collection of tubes and uncoordinated bits. Oh wait....ummm. I like the rear derailleur cable routing, but what's with the others?

    I love those crank brothers wheels. I've been salivating over getting a set. Will be curious to see how you think they perform.

    I hope it's not puke green like that. This is important.

    Those are such cute little wheels though. Like Smurf wheels.





    What's the "decline" mean at the LL?



    Plus it's got the DW Link Biopace suspension thing in back. Holy Marzocchi!.

    Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.

    I tried out the scott genius and it is a little more XC while this has more all mountain geometry in the 150 mode. Similar rear shock technology except the scott is built by dt swiss and this bike has a fox shock. I put a little more faith in the fox rear shock.

    I am not sold on the crank brothers yet, I have the option of swapping out for any wheel set when the bike arrives.

    Now I need to figure out how much do I want to sell the motolight for since I decided I don't need to continue to accumulate bikes.

    Better be cheap. I got zeroed-out trying to sell my '09, PUSHed Motolite frame (purchased new in 2010) a couple of weeks ago.
