Expirience with the Cannondale Scalpel Carbon 2

Cannondale Scalpel Carbon 2 Review No more excuses - the Scalpel Carbon 2 is a total marathon and cross-country beast. Even marathon world champion Henrique Avancini thinks so. With its geometry, the Cannondale Racebike is right in the middle between playfulness and high speed stability. Well trained athletes are likely to really enjoy the sporty seating position. We like: 25 years warranty on the frame!
