|I have been thoroughly pleased with this bike. I was a steel rider, going to aluminum was difficult because of all the negatives i had heard. Not only was this bike not as harsh as I thought, it was comfortable. Being a heavier rider i like the stiffness of the frame. Basically, this is one heck of a ride.|

|Sorry to spoil the party
Get a Columbus Airplane frame with carbon stays (better alum quality); buy a dura ace kit; spend 150 bucks at the bike shop putting it together, and you have a better bike for 3/4 of the price.
HIgh end production bikes are always overpriced! IMO.

|I have to agree. I wish I had taken the time to do exactly as you say. I just had more money than sense! However, it is a good bike.|

That says it all, and to heck with what everyone else says. It's your ride. If you're happy, that's all that matters, right?

|I just wanted to see if everybodies grin is as big as mine. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this bike, particularly when I was pessimistic to begin with!|

|featherweights. I have never liked the ride of Cannondales myself but usually tell my heavier friends that ask about bikes to at least look at Cannondales.
Isn't it nice to find a bike that works for you-specially if it is more than you expected. Congratulations, now get out and ride!

|Being a former competitive bodybuilder, I weigh 200+ at 5'10". Maybe, that is why I like the Cannondale.
The flex was so bad on some bikes, the gears actually changed. So far with the Cannondale this has not happened.
