2011 Cannondale Flash Carbon 29’er

The 2010 Flash Carbon 29’er was Cannondale’s most sought out mountain bike last year, this year they’ve made them even better. The 1 features a Hi-Mod carbon frame, and they are offering a model as low as $2800, so there is something for everyone here. 29’ers aren’t just a passing fad, they are here to stay. Ask riders and racers of all types, 29’er is a great option for a quick mountain bike race, or on the Great Divide race from Canada to Mexico.

Building the best 29’er has its challenges, but Cannondale has some exclusive technologies to make it possible. One of the great troubles of a typical 29’ers is the fork. It is so long and has such a high amount of stress on it, 29’er forks tend to be flexy and bind up easier than their 26″ counteparts. The Lefty fork is the stiffest and lightest 29’er suspension fork. No binding, just a smooth ride across the finish line.
