From pavement to dirt to gravel to your doorstep, the women's Cannondale Althea 3 bike keeps you upright and alert as you negotiate the path home.
Hybrid design blends the speed of a road bike with the sturdy, heads-up ride of a mountain bike inspired frame; low standover height makes mounts and dismounts easy
Frame also uses Cannondale Synapse Active Vibration Elimination (S.A.V.E.) technology to damp road vibration for a smoother ride quality
SR Suntour NEX suspension fork provides 50mm of pothole-damping suspension; suspension can be locked out when it's not needed
Find that just-right gear easily with the Shimano shifters, which guide the derailleurs quickly and precisely through the 24 gears
Kenda Happy Medium tires have a fast-rolling center with aggressive outside lugs for enhanced cornering traction
Platform pedals accommodate everyday shoes—just hop on and go
Frame eyelets let you outfit the bike with fenders and a rear rack (not included)

Cannondale Althea 3 Women's Bike - 2013is rated5.0out of5by2.
Rated5out of5bykeeskidfromgreat bike!!!!I was looking for a light weight bike that would be ok on road, gravel and trails...this is!! I road this weekend on pavement, rough pavement, sand, gravel, dirt paths and over roots...up and downhill. I had the shock locked the whole time and still had an enjoyable ride. Because of the light frame and awesome tires I flew. This is a great bike at a great price. Must admit, I'm not thrilled with the frame shape but very functional.

Rated5out of5byMama BarbfromLove this bikeREI Round Rock Bike Shop is amazing! They fit this bike to me and my activity perfectly. I wanted a trail bike, but not a heavy one. It is a hybrid and totally the right product for my activity level. It's a sleek black bike, putting a clear plastic chain guard on it wasn't appealing to me. I would have liked that to have been black too. If that's the only negative I have, great bike!
