Cannondale HI-MOD Carbon Frame

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Cannondale HI-MOD Carbon Frame

I am 6'2" and 210 lbs. Does anyone know if a Cannondale HI-MOD carbon frame will hold up for someone my size? I am not an aggressive rider.

Some of the HiMods are still built in the States. Regardless of were it came from they are damn nice bikes. If I was not getting a Madone it would have been the Dale.

Yes. Do you remember how late Cannondale introduced their first Carbon bike? There so damn proud of their CAAD frames and got fixated about it for quite a number of years while competitors were churning out full blooded carbon bikes.

Treks were making carbon frames for a long time while Cannondale were making alloys and also came out with those weird mix carbon/alloy frames thinking it would sell like hotcakes. They're so attached with their alloy technology and were caught sleeping with their carbon tech.

Carbon technology as you know is the material of choice for mid/high end bikes.
