design, to 42.9cm, using a neat trick: it shifted the entire drivetrain 6mm outboard with an asymmetric dropout, much like fat bikes have used for years.
Fans of the breed have a new choice for 2015, as low speed handling that turns floppy and the added flex of the larger wheels. Combined with the longer wheelbase required by the bigger hoops, that all makes 29ers tougher to control in tight quarters.
Cannondale slackened the head angle on the new F Si to 69.5 degrees and bumped the fork offset (distance from the steering axis to front hub) out to 55mm. That 1.5 degrees slacker than the F29 on the head angle and an extra centimeter of offset, or rake (many 29er hardtails have head angles in the 71 degree range and 45 47mm of offset depending on fork spec). This is one area where Nike Sweatpants Male Cannondale can make changes others can because they make their own suspension forks, Cannondale isn restricted to fork makers offset offerings.
We rode the new F Si in Albstadt, Germany, at the recent UCI World Cup. Albstadt is located in the rolling hills of southern Germany, almost to Switzerland. The trails are narrow and steep, zig zagging their way up and down with tight switchbacks.

The terrain isn overly technical, but the heavily forested area gets a fair bit of rain. The narrow trails are cut into steep hillsides, with short, sharp climbs and flowing, fast descents broken up by sections of densely packed switchbacks. The decomposed limestone surface alternates from bony rock chip to grippy hardpack to greasy mud, while last year fallen leaves hide roots that are slick with moisture. Chose one bad line, and the front wheel will ricochet right off the track. In short, it an ideal place to test an XC bike.
Unlike traditional forks, Cannondale Lefty fork design requires specific head tube dimensions to attach properly. The F29 head tubes were 134mm tall across all sizes, relying on a single Lefty. The new Lefty 2.0 fork uses three size specific clamp dimensions, which lower the front end considerably for smaller size bikes. On a small and medium F Si, it now 97mm. That a crucial change given that one of the biggest issues smaller riders have with 29ers is a too tall handlebar due to fitting the frame around big wheels and suspension. Large and extra large head tubes were also reduced to 110mm and 122mm. The new, lower cockpit better balances the rider weight, which means less front wheel pop on steep climbs.

also is supposed to help stop the feeling of falling into turns on low speed terrain, like uphill switchbacks. The longer offset gives the bike a longer front center (distance from the bottom bracket to front axle) which, along with a slightly slacker seat angle and shorter chainstays, positions the rider a bit more over the rear wheel.
hardtails hold fast in many World Cup teams and local racers stables.
The result of all that monkeying around is not immediately apparent: the F Si 79mm trail figure is just 1mm shorter than the F29. But, says, Denk, how you get there is what important. angle isn speed sensitive, he points out, offset is. With increased offset, faster you go, the higher the momentum in the front wheel, which increases the torque you need to turn the handlebar. The intended result is a more stable, locked in feeling when swooping down singletrack.
Moving the drivetrain out cleans up the rear tire/front derailleur clearance issues that often result from tight rear triangle geometry and requires longer stays. Our test bike had a SRAM XX1 drivetrain without a front derailleur, but the bike is drilled for a direct mount derailleur and two of the models feature 2x setups. Thanks to a new crankset spider, the 6mm shift does not change the bottom bracket or distance between pedals.
At the same time, the company wanted to preserve the renowned high speed stability of the larger wheel size. While Scott has gone to the middle 27.5 inch wheel size, Cannondale says it feels the foreseeable future for hardtails is mostly 29 inch. So solving 29ers most pressing issues came down to messing with accepted geometry norms, said Peter Denk, Cannondale director of technology.

To get the rim to line up with the center of the frame, it now positioned 6mm to the left over the hub, which means a more even spoke bracing angle between the left and right hub flanges. That makes for a more stable wheel since the spoke tension is more evenly balanced. Cannondale says that the setup will still clear tires up to 2.35 inches wide.
Hardtails might be dead in many mountain bike circles, but not in racing. While full suspension continues to make inroads, Nike Sportswear Tech Fleece Parka
