    ... and if we just ... Retail price of Cannondale IFG?

    Just wnated to know the retail price of the cannondale 2004 IFG.
    Also, what are your thoughts on this bike, if it is well priced I am considering it just as a bike for fun and mucking round on. I weight about 125lbs if it matters and haven't ridden a singlespeed for like 7 years(when I was a small kid, well still am, LOL!). Does supergo sell them, as I live in Australia and would probably pick one up while I'm in the US.
    Thanks

    Is that the same bike?! Surely 999 is a bit pricey for that considering you can get the F600 for 1099. I'm just after the simple IFG with V brkaes and a rigid fork. Thanks

    Ultra...

    Comes with Avid discs and Headshock fork, those are the big differences. My LBS has em for 1299, regular 1FG I believe is 999.

    I just rode the 1FG today to evaluate

    I have a motobecane Fly that I built up to a single speed with a rock shock team fork and have riden it for about 6 months and love it. With that being said, today I had the opportunitiy to ride one at a local rode race.

    I rode a 12 mile course mtb course I do on a regular basis on my motobecane so I was able to do a good comparision. The course is a lot of short steep climbs with a 1/2 mile climb at about 13-14%. I usually ride the course using a 34x16 w/ 175 crank.

    1) The gearing on the 1FG was 32/18. I don't know if this was stock, but it was a bit low.
    2) The cranks were 170mm so it seemed a bit tough. I told the mechanic about that and he said that 'was wrong'. Somehow, the wrong cranks were on the bike that I rode and I don't know what the stock crank length was. The short cranks explains why the climbs seemed more difficult than they should have.
    3) The disk brakes were nice. The were better than my XTR rim brakes.
    4) The ecentric bottom bracket was nice.
    5) The lockout was great. When it was locked out it was SOLID. I didn't like, however, the fact that the lockout was not a 'remote' and required you to take your hands off the handlebars.

    I use my remote lockout ALL the time after I've rocketed down the hill to build momentum and I begin to climb out of the saddle. Neither of these times is a good time to take your hands off the bars; when your speed is the highest or when your rocking the bike back and forth on the climb. A remote lockout activated by the thumb like the have on their scalpel would be awesome.

    In short, my motobecane that I built up is about 3-4 lbs lighter (mine is ~19#) than the 1FG. That extra wt cost for little to no performance gain doesn't warrent me to consider it for racing.

    Hope that helps from a guy that just tried it.

    So Cal

    I saw this bike yesteerday at my local LBS for $649.00.
    They only had a small and a large.

    They also had the SISS for $699.00.

    I don't believe that supergo stocks them but they can be ordered.

    Some of this is a bit nonsensical...you usually ride 34 x 16 with 175 mm cranks, and the blimbs were harder with 32 x 18/170 mm? I hate to break it to you, but 5 mm of crank will NOT offset those gear ratios--32 x 18 would still be easier with 160 mm cranks.

    With my long legs (a contributor to leverage), 32 x 18/175 is enough for most stuff on CO's front range. I couldn't begin to ride most everything out here with 34 x 16/190 mm.

    Thanks, so about 700 bucks for it? Hmmm, that aint too bad, I will see, I might want to get a road bike and hold off the SS for a while as I have limited money.
    BTW this is the model I was after...

    Ok.. To be more specific, last week I changed my gearing to be 32x18 with my 175mm cranks. I've been riding that for course for the last week in preperation for a race that has a lot of short steep climbs. I rode it twice last week in my 32x18, but 5 previous months at 34x16. Now, when I perceieved it being tougher, I was comparing 32x18 (despite the tech told me it was 32x16) between BOTH bikes and 175mm on my bike with the 170mm on the cannondale. Yeah, I thought it was tougher when I was expecting the cranks to be 180mm. When I looked at the stamping, I understood.

    Now, is the horse dead yet?
