Found 20th Nov
Another Cannondale slate offer from wheelbase.co.uk
This one is better speced than the apex model I previously posted.
A good saving from £3000 to £1799.
This one has the lefty Oliver carbon fork, this retails for way over £1000 on its own and is a thing of beauty.
I think it's a bargain, only medium left.

Had to re-read your comment twice; why would someone's age be an issue? then I realised you meant age of the bike...

Good price; don't think these have sold at all well..

I have this exact model and after 6mths and almost 2000 miles of riding I can't praise it enough. It is quite a niche bike and it won't suit everyone but I found coming purely from a mountain biking background it suited me perfectly.

Tried loads of road bikes with extended demo rides before buying this and always found them to be way to harsh and after an hour or so riding I'd feel fatigued just from the amount of road buzz transferring up through the bike. Took a punt on this Slate with it's front suspension and cushy tires and couldn't be happier, very little vibration, road imperfections and minor potholes can just be ridden over rather than avoided and I can easily do a long 5-6 hour ride in complete comfort.

I usually ride a 30 to 40 mile loop that's about 75 percent tarmac and then a mix of bridal and tow paths with a couple of woodland trails and this bike can handle all that with ease. Previously I was having to ride a mountain bike to do the same loop as a traditional road bike would take a real hammering along the rougher parts of my ride, but sold my hardtail MTB after about 2 weeks of buying the Slate as I couldn't ever see me ever choosing to ride it again instead of the Slate.

If you usually ride a MTB on the road or on gravel paths, bridal ways or light trails then I'd recommend trying the Slate as it'll be a lot faster and just as comfortable, if you want a super fast ultra light race bike purely for tarmac rides then this isn't the bike for you.

Fantastic bike and well worth the price given the high spec and the quality of the fork.
