Cannondale Rohloff tourer

Hey all,

Ran across Cannondale's European website and found this great looking bike. It is everything I have been looking for here in the U.S. and comes complete. From the looks of it, the bike would give Koga's World Traveller a run for its money.

http://gb.cannondale.com/bikes/07/ce...odel-7TS1.html

would love to take it for a ride, all three models.

Does anyone know anything about the bikes or have ridden them, especially the one Rohloff equipped?

Thanks

Journey On

That looks like an awesome bike! Front shock, hydraulic rim brakes, Rohloff gearing, I like it! What would you change?

Huuum. I would LOVE a rohloff but suspension fork, hydraulics, and crummy suspension seat post turn me off on this one.

Jeez, why the hell isn't that available in the US?? I would definitely bought one of those bikes if I had seen one when I was shopping a few months ago. Anyone from the UK have pricing information?
