FLO Cycling - Cannondale Demo Fleet
Posted by FLO Cycling at Monday, November 04, 2013
Earlier in the year we were looking for a small demo fleet of bicycles that we could use for demoing FLO wheels. We spoke with a long list of companies, and, in the end, Cannondale felt like the right company to purchase bikes from. We purchased a list of bikes ranging from there CAAD 8 all the way up to the Supersix EVO and we even purchased the brand new Slice RS for those interested in demoing our wheels on a triathlon/time trial specific frame.
Jon and I have been riding all of the bikes and are honestly very impressed with their quality. All of the bikes handle well, are stiff yet compliant, are lightweight, and come spec'd out with great components. The Slice RS is is the best handling TT bike I have ever ridden and seems unaffected by cross winds. Additionally, as much as I hate to say this because I'm a data and numbers guy, the Slice RS just feels fast. I notice that feeling the most in a strong headwind when the speed on my Garmin is reading much higher than it presumably should.
If you are looking for a new road or TT bike, I highly recommend looking at Cannondale's offerings. We purchased our demo fleet, so Cannondale is certainly not paying us to say this. We simply wanted to spread the word because we are very impressed with the quality of the bikes we have received.
I'll leave you with a couple of my favorite pictures.
