You can probably get a 650B Cannondale Flash in lime green next year.


Has Cannondale discontinued the 26" Flash now ?

No, some countries can still get it. It's not available in Canada though.

I have riden 24" 26" 27.5" and the 29er.

I do xc Racing and personally I need a Racing position that i get from a 27.5" and 26"

Abselutely loved my 29er but i sold it to try out the new wheel sice.

Im 177cm tall and a leg length of 84, fit my bike perfection, i Think wheel sice comes Down to what kind of rider you are, and what position you would Like.

29er imo. Is for medium and up if you want comfort and a bike for marathon races.

27.5 is for thise of us that want a Racing position and want to keep the stability from a 29er but the acceleration of a 26".

If you are too cool for School, or simply are starting to ride MTB. 26" might be the right choise, beacause of great control, acceleration and the fact that the small wheels are good for learning.

But most likely we wont see 26" on main stream High end bikes.

I support 27.5" wave cause I see the potentual in my case.

29'er all the way. 650 makes no sense and, 26" is yesterday. 29 will rule.

"We tested them in a group of three pretty intensely over 14 days and we came to the conclusion that the 27.5 feels like 26 in tight, technical and slower stuff but rides more like a 29er on faster singletrail and gives you almost the same safe feel. Our conclusion after those tests was that it's not a compromise – it combines the best of both worlds and we're totally convinced this is the way to go."


let me translate it for you: We tested all three types of wheels, but had absolutely no freaking idea which size to go with, so we picked the middle one, because, as common sense dictates, 650b's are proabably a compromise of whatever qualities 26ers and 29ers possess

After four 29er HTs, I was happy to go back to a 140/125mm FS 26" bike. What a f uckin blast.

I'm over 1 meter 90 tall and i like the way the 29er rides over a 26er.

I had a 26in HT...there is no way I'd ever go back to it after getting my 29er HT (Spesh Carve Pro).

I also have a Pivot Mach 5 (140mm FS)...and my 29er HT does most things better. I pretty much use the Pivot as a shuttle/resort bike. Everything else...I use my Carve.
