    Cannondale Scalpel 29er first ride

    Cannondale didn’t rush to the 29er scene, bringing the Flash 29er out just a couple of years ago.

    I think you should lend that to me as my Twentyfour12 bike...A real world ride test to see if a top line 29er can effect the race performance of an unfit verging on the alcoholic layabout with aspirations of a finish in the mid 20's.

    I like that. And I think BHB's suggestion is a good one - he'd write up a good follow up blog about it too I'm sure.....

    Problem is BHB, it might be just the bike I need for my 12-hour stab at glory at Bonty

    Still, let's not rule it out. They're not available for a while yet though

    Scalpel has always been a dream MTB for me, I'm still looking for a Lefty for my Arc too ;-/
