This is a concept bike that Cannondale unveiled at Euro Bike.

A too expensive balance bike aimed at grown-ups.

They have a prototype on display. Apparently you can alter your position on the fly by raising and lowering the entire front section of the bike. It sounds pretty innovative, if it works as expected.

CG Animation , or did they have a real prototype ?
pictures of that anywhere?

NB: Cannondale Europe's bikes are not for sale in the US..
Completely separate, ( I asked, before) you have to go there
and bring them back, yourself.

Cannondale has a long history of concept bikes that are quite fanciful and never make it to the shops... whether they ever intended them to or not is unclear.

Internal gearing/tranny, linked braking (rim front/internal rear), center pivoting steering, fluid reservoir in seat tube.

But you didn't hear it from me.











Cause I just made it up.





Maybe.
