Cannondale SuperX Rival CX1

Picked it up yesterday and decided it needs to get dirty.

I just googled it and that is a nice looking bike.

I'm surprised you didn't get positive comments about it.

Nice looking bike! If your running SRAM 1x, why not go all the way and run a 10-42 cassette?

That didn't take long.

I found the rear tire flat today. After checking the tire, i found a thorn embedded in the tire.

Easy fix.

I couldn't understand why it came with white bar tape and a white saddle. Since the bar was unwrapped I put black on and was going to install my spare saddle, anyway.

Good looking bike.

Just add some dirt, mud and debris.

Then you'll be all set.

How are you finding the paint to be holding up? that would be my only gripe with said bicycle. I use the Caadx and the paint Es horible

I only have 100 miles on it and honestly i purchased it as a foul weather bike. I have a Trek Emonda SLR with Sram eTap and it'a way more fun to ride on the streets so i've back on it.

I'll use the SuperX on shorter rides, on rainy days and when i want a bike that is a bit "beefier" than the Emonda. I fully expect it to get chipped and that's OK.

There's a rail trail near where my son lives, so i'll take the SuperX to it and other "non-road" conditions.

Nice bike. How is the gearing for riding on the road? I'm thinking of getting one of these, but worried that it might be geared too low for road riding with road tires.

It's great on the road. There are some gaps with the 11-32 vs the stock 11-28. but I've not run out of gears.

When bought the bike I also bought a set of Bontrager AW2 tires for the street. They've been back ordered so i've been riding the knobby.... and i like them. So i just got a killer deal on a set of Zipp 30 Course Disc wheels and will put the street tires on it. So now I can easily swap wheels for on-road or off-road.

Loved mine the short time I had it. Sold it because it wasn't quite what I was looking for and ended up with a Jamis Renegade. But the SuperX is a fast and surprisingly comfortable bike.

And I agree...the white just didn't make sense.

It was a cool and damp day so I left the road bike home and took the SuperX. it's the perfect bike for these conditions.

It's been awhile since I last posted here. Over the summer there was no love for the CX, but since December its been my primary ride. After buying a winder jacket and gloves, i've been riding with temps in the high 20s. Last Saturday I went out for 40 miles in the snow and slush and came home covered in road salt and the bike filthy with sand and grit. I spend 2 hours cleaning the bike. I put 300 miles on in January and it's really extended my cycling to 12 months a year.

If may not be my summer bike, but it's awesome in the winter.

Can't lie...some days I regret selling mine. I think if it had a 15mm TA up front I would have kept it. As a heavy rider...I got a lot of rotor rub when putting out hard efforts. That wasn't the main reason I sold it. But one reason that I didn't keep it. I'm pretty happy with the replacement Renegade. But I love my Kona Private Jake more than both the CAADX and Renegade combined.
