The Quick CX Ultimate is part of the Quick urban bike series, showed last year as a concept. It's part of what Cannondale calls its “Urban Mobility Project,” and illustrates how exciting a high-tech commuter bike can be.
The Quick Carbon urban bikes bring a number of top-end technologies like BB30 and integrated headsets to a sleek carbon frame that retains practical features like rack and fender eyelets. Of course 700C wheels and clearance for cyclocross tires don’t hurt, and the flat bar is more suited to heads-up urban riding than a drop bar might be.
The Quick line also includes a series of aluminum bikes at lower prices. Quick Carbon bikes are slated for October availability.
