    Thank You! Actually, it's all Factory, I even left the Reflectors on the Wheels but that's because I use the Bike to commute and ride Home in the dark every night.

    I've had the Bike a year now and that's only the second time it's been offroad, I'm a Roadie in real life.

    I have nothing to contribute to the MTB forums so thanks for not flaming me Guys

    Oh, I just realized I've been meaning to get another Saddle, this is one area where Cannondale cut corners, but then again, I don't blame them because most riders use their own anyway...

    Can you Guys point me to a good MTB Saddle?

    Cheers

    I love the Light, I was just too lazy to take it off yesterday, you've probably noticed it's the Light & Motion "ARC"....

    For commuting there's no way a Motorist could ever say he didn't see me, in fact, I have to point it to the kerb so I don't dazzle oncoming Motorists, but the nicest thing is I can ride my MTB and Roadbike 24 hours a Day, it throws out a fantastic beam and I haven't been able to outrun it at 35 mph yet.

    Sure, they're spendy, but with all the extra hours I've been able to ride along with not being hit by a Car it's more than paid for itself

    We all know you have good taste in prongs

    Especially in choosing the most appropriate set of prongs for a given frame.

    I really like your bike, I am in the market for a 29er and have been tempted by the caffeine, just a question though, since you have a lefty fork wouldn't you have better balance up front if you shifted light battery and light to other side of handlebars? I am a mtb newb, just thought might balance lil' better

    If you stick your hand out to the side while riding you don't fall over, do you?

    The weight is most likely insignificant.

    The idea that a lefty unbalances you in any way is a myth. Remove it from your brain and never let it come back.

    If anything, it corrects the lopsidedness the drivetrain provides.

    Very nice!

    If you use it for commuting, and rarely offroad, why not some 1.5" slicks of over some 1.95" slicks?
