what does /n/ think of the slate?
http://www.cannondale.com/en/Canada/Bike/ProductDetail?Id=70774e94-f9c2-4943-81da-0dc02b353c15&parentid=19002b84-986d-491c-b12b-04b847147d2a
Does it really offer anything over CX bikes? Is it a niche too narrow to be worthwhile? Is it just a hamfisted attempt at making one bike do the job of two?

interesting geo and lefty fork anyhow

Meme bike

>"This new bike by Cannondale combines two worlds that usually have little to do with one another. It echoes elements of a mountain bike and interprets these for road use. As a result, it taps into a bigger target group of cyclists."

that was from their page, but at $4500 the people that can afford those prices also can afford to own multiple bikes built to their specific types of riding. Really even on a cx I rarely hit anything worth having any suspension, but it might be nice on the hands for rough gravel roads. I think they are trying to work with the "adventure bike" market.

I had the demo bike a couple months back for a week. It's a fucking blast to ride around. It won't replace a CX bike though, and it's pretty expensive for what it is. Also the wheel size limits your tire choice quite a bit.

bump for interest and to annoy the thread nazi some more

Hi

Too many people on /n/ are sitting around inside and getting grumpy instead of bundling up and riding bikes in spite of cold...

>>907906
The Slate seems like one big marketing gimmick to me, it's not clear how any of the things that make it unique actually make it a better bike.

Too much dosh for to ride a meme

It looks like a lot of fun, but it's expensive and I can't really justify another bike for the sort of "adventure" niche when I already have one and basically never go off road with it.

Last time I did got a pinch puncture anyhow, so converting to tubeless would probably be a good idea.
>>
Looks like a nice bike, but no fenders? Get fucked.

is that lefty fork still fuck-all expensive? it's like $1100 alone, isn't it?

my opinion: they should have some kind of rear suspension if they put any on the front. at least a good shock seatpost.
