Mountain Biking - Scapel 900 SL
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I was wondering if I could get some feedback on the Cannodale Jekyl SL 900. For example it's handling abilities, utilized for some x-country racing but mostly for riding in the moutains (as in Canmore Alberta) for fun. I would appreciate any type of feedback as I am thinking of purchasing a 2003 moderl.
Hi and thanks for the response but in what way are they great bikes?

I have never ridden this bike, and I have heard both good and bad things about cannondales. Mostly good, though. One thing you might want to consider is that it comes with a Cannondale Headshok, which I beleive means that it has to be serviced at cannondale, and in most cases can't be done in your local shop. I might also be skeptical of the Cannondale discs, but then again i have never used them. Otherwise, I have had heard many good things about Cannondales in general. Just do some research first.

my brief opinion is that the jekyll design is very outdated and you can get a better component spec and sus design for the same price with just about any other bike brand
There is a better option ...

Both MTB and Road.
These are FANTASTIC bikes, VERY WELL KNOWN in Europe.
