Cannondale Quick SL 2 Bike - 2013is rated2.5out of5by2.
Rated1out of5byfromGreat Bike...EXCEPTWhat great bike, light fast and a rocket going up hills EXCEPT, the cranks have a known issue. They started to click within week #1. Immediately I had to take the bike back in and they said that the crank set (FSA BB30) has had loads of failure issues. "Just look up clicking noise + BB30 online" he said. I did and sure enough it has been failing for lots of others. They repaired it, but the issue came back even worse 2 weeks later. I was not stressing the bike in anyway but after 30 minutes of road riding, a loud and really harsh clicking noise was coming out of the cranks every rotation. It was so loud that I could easily record it on my cell phone while riding. So the bike is in the shop again, and I am trying to figure out if I return it or take a bet that it can be repaired permanently. Given all the similar testimonies online, it will probably be the former, which is a shame since this is a really nice bike.

Rated4out of5byfromDaily commute almost fun again!Alternate work-commute steed, what fun to ride when chosen, as it's so light and quick up the hills. Shimano clipless pedals have flat on one side for dress work shoes -- good choice.
