  • Pedals not included

All bicycles sold at REI include a free warranty tune-up. New bikes go through a normal break-in period, after which readjustment is important for longevity and performance. Bring your new bike in to your local REI for its free tune-up within 20 hours of use or 6 months from purchase, whichever comes first. Contact your nearest REI bike shop to schedule this important service.

Imported.

Rated 5.0/5 based on 1 reviews
Rated 5out of5
by fromIncredible bicycle The bicycle rides like a dream. After a long hiatus from cycling, I picked up the Cannondale and haven't regreted it for a second. It's incredibly light, responsive and rides really well. The gears change quickly and reliably, and the handling is as good as I could hope for. I'm not a racer, but if you read the reviews of this bike you'll find it has a relaxed geometry that is designed for comfort; you lose some top speed in exchange for comfort on long rides. That trade off is perfect for me, but if you're planning on extensive racing maybe another bike would be a better fit.
