Cannondale Bad Girl 3, your opinions? Link inside.

I am able to get this bike for my wife at $690 brand new. What are you thoughts and opinions on it? Any experience with one?

Looks like a great deal! As long as you're getting a warranty, I'd say go for it!

Shimano Alivio shifters, Deore derailleurs, etc. 28c tires even. Fairly good specs from what I can tell, and the price is good. The design definitely fits the name as well.

All I'd do is remove the "useless" chain guard, (they loosen up, crack, bend) and it will be a really good looking machine, hope she, ENJOYS it!!

Assuming that it fits your and you like the way it rides, I'd say go for it. Fit is the most important thing because if it's too small or too big, riding it will suck and it'll just collect dust.

Looks pretty nice! I think the Bad Boy is popular, so the Bad Girl should be similar.

It looks a bit heavy to me, but it depends on what kind of riding she wants to do. Cannondale makes good bikes.
