The NEW Cannondale Scalpel?

cannondalescalpel_cl

Eliflap shared a picture of this from a German forum that got the picture from a Czech website.

The news I can see is that it’s made for the new Lefty 2.0, the rear damper is more tucked in to the frame (like a Specialized Epic) and the rear part is a bit different than on todays Scalpel and it got internal wiring. Will be interesting to see if they can make it as good as the transition from Flash to F-Si seems to be. Still haven’t tried an F-Si but would love to if I can sometime, seems like they got things right with that one.

You know anything more about the new Scalpel?

She Rides weekend

You know when you have a weekend with a lot of biking planned and you start to loose the grip on a slippery grass corner and get a bit less skin on your hip? Then it’s good to not be alone and just feel sorry for yourself and instead enjoying to ride a bike with a beautiful girl like this:

and as a tribute to the day before I had Le Mond kit and we ended the ride with a coffee at bikecafé Le Mond:

Then we left for Rönneberga on Lidingö for a weekend planning the bright future of She Rides which is a great community for women cyclists in Sweden. Rode some mtb together too:

After a nice sleep and some good breakfast and to learn about Prehab and Rehab from Access Rehab it was time for riding again. Today I got a bike in my size and a full suspension, Scott Spark 27,5″:

Fun to try and haven’t ridden 27,5″ all year, felt small. Met the big guys (Johnnie and Andreas) and I got to try a 29+ Trek Stache a little, that’s big:
