    Isn’t this just Scott Genius knock off?

  • Sam says:

    Looks like it, just with a Fox pull shock instead of a Scott-brand shock. I have one big question, though: where’s the Lefty?

  • lono says:

    I owned a 2003 Jekyll so I believe this is not so much a knock off as a reanimation (potentially of a knock off in 2003). The old Jekyll ran a lefty max but you could really notice the difference between turning right and left with the geometry/suspension. This new fork choice makes sense to me.

  • whoolio says:

    If it looks like a knock off, and smells like a knock off…it might be a…well, you know the rest.

  • stiingya says:

    actually Fox was first with this technology. The first Specialized enduro’s had the “itch switch” that changed the amount of travel in the rear fox shock. They also had the Talus rear shocks that changed travel modes, both before Scott.

    Sure looks like a sweet bike! Still a single pivot though, and after being on a dual link bike I’m not sure a SP will cut it anymore???

  • david says:

    where the hell is the 29er full suspension?

  • Mark Landsaat says:

    It is not entirely surprising it shares some likeness to a Genius. Peter Denk, the guy behind the Genius now works for Cannondale. I wouldn’t call this a knock off, It’s more of a Peter Denk signature. I like it.

  • max says:

    dude this is so coo,how much does it cost and can it be shiped to morrocco.

  • david says:

    were is the full suspension 29er?!?! dam! bring it out already big c! prophet 29er, gemini 29er! rush carbon 29er! i dont care, just make one!

  • CB says:

    Same guy who designed the Genius left Scott, came to Cannondale and says thanks o better technology with Fox they were able to perfect the shock technology over the genius. Rebound can be adjusted separately where as on the Genius it could not be. They will also, eventually, be letting this type of shock be used by other bike companies a-la BB30. Scott wanted to keep it in house, and just shipped the design out to DT Swiss for manufacturing. This time Cannondale and Fox co-developed it. Should be interesting! I love my Genius, it is a stunning bike to ride.

  • chris says:

    This looks like an excellent application of the pull shock used on the Genius. It should be called an evolution, NOT a copy. The design and placement of the shock and linkage inside the frame (frame helps take load)and the double-bearings represent a big improvement over his previous design. Swap out the Reverb, throw on some Ti pedals, and you may end up with a 25 lb. bike….. Oh My God! Just the thing for East Glacier in Juneau! As for the Lefty, I love mine, but agree that it freaks people out. Hey, if you just have to have it, buy the frame, and build one up with your beloved FrankenFork. I am on an old Prophet,which is showing its age. Flexy, but a great bike for the 2nd gear,semi-trials riding we do up here. One big pivot, less moving parts = durability. Not the best for faster riding others may do. Moral? Depends what you are riding. I recommend a test ride, THEN make the call….

  • Peter says:

    Please, no 29er, end the 29ers!!!! Say no to 29!! 29=666=EVIL!! Leave 29 for the spinners! Monster mudders…….

  • Tundratic says:

    How much, how much, how much…. cant find prices anywhere. The local dealer wont even publish anything.

  • beaver says:

    29 are the reverse of all the progress made in biking,taking us back to the penny farthing
