Looks good value... not used wheelbase before though.

Very good price for the specs. Deciding on the size not so easy by mail order...

I have the Mavic Aksium's on my Cube GTC bike and they are pretty good.

Cool story

They say Ultegra and then leave out the chainset and put inferior one on?
Good price though.

Very good price for an excellent bike.

Shame it's not a full Ultegra group set. Although there's nothing wrong with 105. Heat

The chainset is not ultegra. It is cannindales own make usually.

Yep, BB30 pressfit. No idea why they still use it. The BB needs replacing frequently on my Synapse. Really puts me off an otherwise good bike

The cassette is 105 but the chainrings are cheapies by FSA

Also standard chainring size on the chainset. So only suitable to a more seasoned rider.

Frameset is great. So I would turn a blind eye to the non ultegra parts in the groupset.

Agree with comment on BB30 Bottom Bracket, mine has been replaced twice and still creaks and clunks

It's a semi-compact, rather than a traditional double. Given you've got 11 sprockets and a 28, it gives you a better range and some more top end to stop you spinning away downhill. It's what I'd be expecting on 11-speed.

It allows a 30mm axle instead of a 24mm one so it's stiffer.

The bearings are inside the shell not external so the cranks can be closer together (think of a cowboy!)

Having the bearings inside allows the chainstays to be further apart so the tyre can be brought close and the chainstays made shorter.

The bearings are held in with circlips so you can't cross thread the frame or cut the threads wonky in the first place.

The shell is a larger diameter so it is stiffer than a conventional one.

This is why it has a cannondale crank as Shimano don't make a bb30 one, you could fit an adapter but it would negate some of the benefits (q factor, bearing sizes, etc).

I will finish by saying bb30s can be a lot of trouble if they are installed badly/dry. My boardman was really squeaky to begin with! I'd probably rather have an external bb but there are good reasons (in theory) for bb30!

Great bike, great deal.
Hot hot

Very good bike & great price yet some interesting comments regarding it's spec.

It's a BB30 like all Cannondales, therefore an "Ultegra" chainset wont fit without an adapter which a manufacturer wont use. This is a very good chainset, shame it's not the Hollowgram version though with Spiderings.

Alot of manufacturers use a cheaper cassette, so this isn't uncommon.

As for the chainring sizes, it's pretty standard now to use 52/36. 50/34 are generally being phased out and this is an Ultegra bike so if you weren't "seasoned" and just testing a bike to see if you'd enjoy cycling, you'd pick something cheaper so as to not waste too much money if it's not your thing.

FSA also are a good brand so not sure where the "cheapies" idea comes from. Cannondale has used FSA K-Force rings on bikes before, and they are good chainrings, not sure exactly which FSA rings these are though.

Heat added.

That's no big deal. It's the wheels that are the weakest link. I'm negging but it's still an awesome deal for the money. I'd definitely want to splash out on some rims if I bought one though

I have a cannonade, hated the BB30 so eventually bought an adapter, Hollowtech 2 BB and new cranks and now it works like a dream!

Great bike for the price. So good I ordered one last night. Getting delivered in the morning. Wheels are the weak point but they're bomb proof just a bit heavy. Mine will be swapped out straight away for my lighter wheelset.

It's not just bb30 bottom brackets that can be a problem. I have bb86 pressfit on my current bike which I've had to change every year after about 3000 miles each.

That statement about compact chainset being phased out in favour of semi compacts, is that a fact or your opinion?
Genuine question. This would be an interesting trend. Kind of negating the benefits of 11s Vs 10s if you have to go 32t just get up an average gradient hill.

I can certainly see why Cannondale would have specced one on this type of bike.

Top deal OP.
I truly hope 50/34 chain sets remain here to stay. I use one with a 32t rear and love it, it allows me to spin quite happily up Mont Du Chat and many shorter but steeper climbs, often seated. Only really been an issue for TT on downhill segments, where I spin out, but the positives of lower range out weight the top speed limit. My average cadence is typically high at about 90-100 RPM, so if you can't break the habit of 70-80 RPM, then a compact wont be for you.
As they say, spinners are winners, crankers are ...

It's what is generally wrote on review websites like BikeRadar/Road.cc etc and the amount of bikes that come with 52/36 these days, compared to a few years ago shows this trend. You tend to see even endurance bikes having a 52/36 but with a 32 & long cage mech on the back instead of 50/34 & a 28 with short cage.

Not "all" bikes have gone this route but the trend is showing that the review sites are could be correct. Do a search on Google or even Youtube, there's plenty of information regarding this issue.

I run a 52/36 with an 11-28 and I much prefer it over the 50/34 11-28 that I used to run. I can get up 30+ % gradients on the new setup so it doesn't make some hills impossible as a lot of folk tend to think.

It all depends on your strength I suppose. Your gear ratio of 1.29 is quite a step away from my 1.06 which just gives many more options for the average rider. Also lower gearing transfers more of the stress to your aerobic system meaning your legs will fatigue less and assuming your aerobic system is strong enough allow you to feel fresher at the top of a climb or climb at pace for longer. So lower gearing just makes average or steep climbs easier. There is a reason why Froome spins like Mary Berry with a whisk.

Looking at getting something really decent. Any tips on where to start looking. I do day rides of 70+ miles and multi day rides avg. 100 per day. Currently using a 3 Yr old £330 decathlon Road bike.
