Cannondale Quick 4-Who has one and how do you like it?

I might make a deal on a 2010 ridden only 3 times so want to know how well you like yours? No way I will ever be able to bend over enough for a real road bike so is this a good compromise without breaking the bank? Thanks

I bought a Quick 4 around the beginning of April for about $600.
I love it. I have no complaints.
I ride ~100 miles per week on paved bike paths and bike friendly roads.
I've also had no problem riding short distances on hard dirt, limestone and grassy paths.

I did upgrade a few things though...
A new stem. It's much longer and has less rise for a more aggressive posture.
Brooks B17 black saddle.
Ergon grips.
L shaped bar ends.
Clipless pedals.
and my favorite upgrade...
28mm Continental Gatorskins.

I'm very happy with my Quick 4 purchase.
It's a great bike at a great price.
For value, I really don't think you can find a better hybrid at that price.
....and I researched hybrids in the $600 range ad nauseum...

I have a 2011 Quick 4 and love it. Don't know if there are any differences between the 2010 and 2011, but mine is very nimble and light on my urban commute. Only minor complaint is the grips- they're OK but I'm sure there are better ones out there.

Thanks for the info. I stole the thing. The guy said it was like "brand new ridden only 3 times" and he wasn't kidding. It hasn't even had break in tune up yet. Will post pics later. I need to have a sale.

Maybe not, but at least trim the sig down to your top 3!

Congrats! I have a Quick 3 and I love it. I tried a 4 first and I really liked the ride. The 3 is a little more road-like (skinnier tires).
Cannondale makes great bikes for the bucks.
Oh, and the 2010s and 2011s do vary a bit. Paint job, grips (2011s better), shifters among them. But all in all minor differences, I believe.
