I know some of you have commented on the Cannondale Frame being a bit stiff (ill have to see what other comments I get but Im hoping its not to bad as I really like the bike). Im just hoping it will be ok for me, though I am to use it for long rides (up to 100m ile training and Ironman).
Finally, many many thanks for all the help you guys (and girls) have given me its really appreciated.
