    LBS making me a deal on a new '15 Cannondale SL SS 29er

    This will be my first single speed, will likely pick it up in a few days, will be about $750. Any comments on the bike or the price?
    They recently had one of the techs in shop buy the other one and when set up tubeless and a couple of tweeks they were easily able to get it down to 21#.

    Most everything I can find online reference the old models with crappier brakes, etc. but the '15 seems to have slihtly better specs, and honestly just checking it out in person seems like allot of bike for $750.

    Any advice or anything else I should look at?

    That was my thought as well Alan, I just need an exercise ride for the hills around here and to take my 9 year old out on some basic trails.

    One of my LBS has the same deal, and I am seriously thinking about pulling the trigger. I actually had the '13 model, and for less money this one is way better. Better wheelset, better tires, better looking. The only reason why I sold mine was that I was in between 2 sizes, and should have gone with the smaller one. It's a great bike for that price....do it, and enjoy!!

    I just paid $600 for a used 2015 Crave SL, and it needed a little work thrown at it. I'd say a brand new bike for $750 is a pretty good deal!!
    I need a cool saying to put here.

    Only issue I had with mine was the BB design. It shouldn't be a problem if you use a torque wrench and don't adjust it very often though. It's a solid bike for the money and I think I got mine for around the same price. I sold mine because I came across a new el mariachi ss for under $1,000.
