 One of the best bikes I've ever ridden. First the pros: Super short chainstays (420) means it corners on a dime and is super playful. XO1 Eagle is as expected, but seemingly well suited for such a long travel trail bike. Sram 900s are awesome too. The bike feels like a 29er in the way that it rolls really nice over pretty much anything, but it doesn't have that 29er bulk. At 29lbs without pedals, it's really light for a long travel enduro bike that has an aluminum rear triangle. Cons: Would've loved to see Guide rsc's instead or just rs. Cannondale used their own bars and headset which is fine but a different name brand would've been better. Raceface turbine for a dropper post worries me a little in the long run, would've preferred a Fox transfer, but the race face works fine as of now. Overall this bike is a do it all ride and doesn't disappoint with its sheer agility or accuracy on the trail. It's awesome.
