Expirience with the Cannondale Habit LT 2

Cannondale Habit LT 2 Review Bikes with 150 mm millimeters of front travel have become rare. The Habit LT 2 fills the gap between trailbikes and enduros with a fun-oriented approach. As the big brother of the Cannondale Habits without the model suffix "LT", it not only has 10 millimeters more travel at the front and rear, but also squints with a newschool geometry approach clearly more towards the decent. No matter how rowdy the ride gets: when shredding the Cannondale Fully, the 64,7 degree head tube angle and the long wheelbase ensure a pretty chilled handling. The relatively high front allows you to sit upright in the saddle. The strongest case for this bike is however: The coherent geometry and grippy tires ensure full send mode on the trail. The guarantee promise of 25 years ensures trust.
