We love this bike! The Cannondale Quick CX1 is probably a bit of a niche ride, but for the right person it couldn’t get better.
It’s a nimble commuter or fitness bike with confidence inspiring flat bars and a position that’s reasonably upright but still a bit aggressive. It has tires that offer good traction and grip on gravel and light trails but are still reasonably efficient on pavement. It has the tried and true, proprietary Headshok front suspension that offers just the right amount of travel for the intended type of riding in a lightweight and laterally stiff package.
Completed with solid mid-range Shimano SLX components this is just a great, solid ride that gets you from A to B better than just about anything else.
Cost is $1900 plus taxes. We have a size medium built up in the shop right now.
