I'm thinking of getting the Cannondale Bad Boy for commuting purposes. I can't stand the potholes anymore and even with carbon forks on the road bike I still haven't got used to it. Of course, I wear padded shorts.

Any there any other bikes worth considering? It'd help if it wasn't so heavy. This is mainly the reason I'm trying to avoid bikes with front suspension.


  • Any reason why you can't put wider tyres on? I seem to think that the 1.5 will take 25mm with 'guards, you should be able to run 28mm without.
