I'm going for the F1...but i don't like the colour scheme (white/red/blue). I've heard the F1 is also available in an other colour setting, anyone any pics?

Is red/white/blue going to be the team colours for 2013? It would match the previous green color very poorly IMO.

I think they might be - Cannondale had new demo bikes at Mountain Bike Oregon this past weekend and all the 2013 Scalpels and Claymores they had were blue/red/white (they had 26" Triggers in green, though).

I agree on the rather ugly color combinations for the 2013 flash models :( But the Ultimate is very nice and very good looking!

Hoping for 2 different colors on the flash 2, just like the 2012 model. That will be my new bike then :) Does anyone know if they are opting for magura brakes this year, just like Specialized, or is it still Avid?? Thx

Is it really true that it's possible to get the Carbon 1 in this colourway as well: http://www.rockmachine-germany.de/image ... 2403_0.jpg ?

That would be awesome news :beerchug:

That would be sweet compared to the Nascar red and blue on the 2013 scalpel 1!

Judging from '13 dealerbook- that's exactly how C1 will look like ;)

Hey guys sorry I'm a total noob to MTB. I was wondering what's the difference between the trail and flash ? And also roughly how many grams lighter is the carbon vs aluminum flash ? Bit of a hijack I know ..

The trail is the more relaxed/comfortable/stable of the two, a bit like the difference between a Synapse and SuperSix.

No matter what level of flash you buy, they all look fast!
