by roomdfromNot the 2014 modelIf you order this and expect to a 2014 year model with 11-speed Ultegra, then you won't. I ordered in October 2013 and got a bike with warranty card listing a production date of 04/18/2013 and product code of C13XRIC which is a 2013 model (can be checked against the printed C'dale catalog). I am not sure whether this is a Cannondale mistake (their US website shows 2014 with 10-speed Ultegra, but their European websites advertise it as 11 speed) or probably for some reason they decided to give Europeans a better specced bike under the same name and year.
By itself, this is a fine bike. Just don't expect the latest model. If the better 2014 variation of this bike will start trickling into the US stores later this year, I will definitely use the REI unconditional satisfaction guarantee to exchange this bike to the genuine 2014 model. Other than that, it's a keeper.
