Expirience with the Cannondale Trail 8

Cannondale Trail 8 Review The Trail 8 is a classic among hardtails. It has eased the start into biking for many people. The handling of this bike remains balanced thanks to a moderate geometry. The seating position does not manage to be too athletic, nor too upright. It´s moderate character is likely to suite the vast majority of bikers. Trail lovers should nevertheless be convinced by this argument: in the downhill, the coherent geometry ensures you´ll have a wide smile in your face. The guarantee promise of 25 years ensures trust.
