2018 Cannondale SuperX - Apex1
 
Just looking for some feedback. Found an ok deal, 2,999 - 40% off leftover = 1,800. Hoping to get some feedback on the bike (slipping seat post a real world thing?) I don't think the proprietary AI/offset wheels is a big deal, butt the cx2.0 rims only being tubed is a bummer. Doesn't sound like they seal w/ ghetto tubeless very well.
If anyone has been riding this and has some feedback over the past year, would love to hear some mileage reports!

Buy a Giant TCX Apex 1x instead? I don't know if this is good advice or not.

not sure where you are getting the idea the maddux cx 2.0 isn't tubeless compatible, running mine tubeless currently

From google. And from one of the mechanics not being 100% sure it'll work well given seams on them.

This one? That says they're tubeless ready? https://www.cannondale.com/USA/bike/...3-b8c4b52152b7

Nope. From whatever review site I had brought up on the phone while out and about yesterday. So good. They can hopefully be run tubeless w/o issue. Now what about the slipping seatpost. Over stated in reviews? Still looking for anyone who has been on one for a season already and has feedback on it overall, too.

I almost bought a Super X! Its a super fast bike and rides comfortably. Went with a Santa Cruz Stigmata I got a similar deal on. If it fits and you like it I'd say go for it. AI seemed like a good solid part of the build from what I read and watched. The Super X has a lot of trophies to back it up also. Good luck with your buy!

Ah ok. I saw they were having a good sale a few weeks back that brought the bike to $1,700. Must be gone now.

Went w/ the SuperX after a lot of debating. It's for the gf, and she loved the way it rode more than the other stuff she demo'd. A big upgrade from her current Specialized Sirrus. :)
