The fabled Cannondale Beast of the East is back! In its newest incarnation it’s come back to us as a 27.5+ with 3″ wide tires that have approximately the same outer circumference as standard 29er tires.
It also now comes to us built up with a 1x drivetrain. In fact there are 3 Beast of the East models available, each with different 1x set ups. The mid-level “2” pictured here has a 1×11 SRAM GX drivetrain, offering a great range of gears in a simple set up.
For Prairie and Canadian Shield riding this might be the do-everything machine that offers the capability to get over almost all local terrain with very little compromise no matter the situation. Consider it a light weight, front suspended Fat(ish)Bike that’s fast on the trails but can still take you well off the beaten path.
We have a medium size built up and ready for test riding. If you hand over $2800 plus taxes we’ll even let you take it home.
