    Looks like the Killer V made a comeback as a 29′er

  • Gregg says:

    Exactly, drbelleville! Cannondale used their old Killer V frames as inspiration on the new Tango model.

    I am not real sure what you guys consider ample room for water bottle holder. We just bought a 2013 tango 29er for my girl friend and so far I have not been able to fit anything in it. I can almost fit a small bottle with a side exit holder.
