Cannondale Introduces the New Jekyll 29
@SlodownU: IDK, I've ridden with a hydro pack for years and will continue to, however among the people I ride with, more and more are opting to put stuff on the bike instead of carrying it on their backs....

@fecalmaster: How many frames have you ever seen fail this way?

@fecalmaster: has your engineer friend looked at a high percentage of the other suspension bikes on the market? That same thing could be said about them.

Really? Sure it's not perfect, but pre production is just that, a time to tool, build and test. And, that is what bikeradar got to test, a pre production sample. How about the test bikes that were raced on the world cup? If this was a chronic problem, you would have seen the UR team failing frames as well. Maybe this also speaks the riding talent of the bikeradar reviewer? The guy came up short and cased a jump... Given the time frame that they have been working on this bike, it does not seem like they are rushing to market an unfinished product.

@hevi: Stiction... I guess you missed where others have said that it moves smoothly through it's travel when they remove the shock to examine it?

Most suspension platforms cause the frame to collapse (or fold) when they go deep into their travel, given the way the back end moves relative to the slider it's no wonder that this design keeps the rear wheel glued to the ground. I imagine that this also has the effect of driving the fork a bit as well. It's interesting to me that very few reviewers comment on this. I like and wouldn't hesitate to throw my leg over one. Good work D, Z and team!

Meh, I have much respect for Tracy and Mick however the field of talent is so heavily stacked these days, just an equipment advantage alone is only going to go so far.
