human33, That link's title startled me for a moment. It is a ST in the photos, however.

Cannondales are stiff and rigid. Ride comfort is dependent largely on tire pressure, as I've learned over my two decades of riding them. For a tourer the stiffness is desired to control what is loaded onto the bike for a tour. Unloaded I run 65 PSI (4.48 BAR) front and rear and ~75 PSI (5.17 BAR) in the rear with a 30 lb. (13.6 kg) rear load.
