Even serious cyclists enjoy bicycling for the fun of it. Olympic medalists Connie Carpenter and Davis Phinney ride their Cannondale racing bikes in the mountains of Colorado.
FASTER, MORE EFFICIENT. STRONGER, LIGHTER. MORE COMFORTABLE.
PERFORMANCE GEOMETRY. PATENTED DESIGN.
All Cannondale bicycles feature our patented Optimum Oval™ seatstays (US# 4513985), which increase rear triangle stiffness for a more stable and efficient ride. Our offset seat tube design (patent pending) allows us to shorten the chainstays on Cannondale racing bicycles, tightening the wheelbase and also creating a more rigid rear triangle. By effectively shortening the down tube, our offset seat tube also adds to the overall stiffness of the frame.

All-Terrain SM600 and SM700.
The SM600 and SM700 are built to go places no other bikes can, with SunTour's XC off-road component groupo, and a rugged Cannondale aluminum frame. The SM600 features dual 26 inch wheels and cruiser-type geometry for wooded trails and city streets alike. Cannondale's exclusive 24 inch rear wheel gives the SM700 a shorter wheelbase and greater traction that make it the premiere production off-road bicycle.
