2013 Cannondale Scalpel 29er Carbon 1

We didn't think there was a way to make Cannondale's Scalpel any faster. Then they made the Scalpel 29er Carbon 1. And they just happened to make it one of the lightest full-suspension 29er frames in existence. Beyond light, it's one of the stiffest frames with the use of BallisTec high-modulus carbon and a rear through-axle as well. That stiffness, combined with super-short chainstays and dialed geometry, make this thing corner like a 26-inch hardtail, with the unfair benefit of 29-inch wheels and plush travel. You've got 100mm of race-proven, pivotless suspension in the back, and up front, the 100mm carbon Lefty charges the way. And the specs show off its race readiness with a full X0 group, TruVativ bars, and Reynolds carbon wheels.

    I have ridden it for 1 year and awesome bike. Fast as my Flash Carbon, but takes all the pain from my back. Best bike for all the local tracks, Markham, Amelia, Quiet Waters, one and you won't regret it.
