Details

Looking for a fat bike without all the fat? Lightweight construction and nimble OutFront geometry make the Fat CAAD so agile and quick, you'll want to ride it all year long. The slack head angle and long front center lets you get rowdy on the steeps, while the tight trail measurement keeps things crazy-nimble at slow speeds so you get the most out of that big, fat contact patch. Thanks to Cannondale's System Integrated cranks and offset chainrings, the FAT CAAD's Q-factor is up to 2.5cm narrower than the competition, so it feels like riding a bike, not a horse. The System Integrated crankset and offset Ai offset chainring also balance the short stays and allow for 2x compatibility with up to 4.8" tires!

Comments:

I could not be happier with this bike. At this price point, it's a fantastic investment. The Qfactor allows this to feel like a regular mountain bike set up and unlike riding a horse like some fat bikes. Because of the Mule Fat rims, I set it up tubeless dropping weight and allowing for better traction. It handles better than I thought, and the components have worked flawlessly. I do wish they set it up 1x10 or 1x11 as I've rarely if ever used the granny gear. I highly recommend buying this bike. It's the same as the fat caad 1 minus the lefty fork and the 1x10 drivetrain. For the money, I would choose this over the fat caad 1.

    This bike is just fun to ride. On dirt it seems nearly as fast as my Cannondale hardtail but with the extra grip of the big tires. Handling was just as responsive. I have mine set up tubeless and it is only 2lbs heavier than my 29er. Between the traction and the lowest gear climbing hills seemed easier. I really like the wide bars. Riding on snow has been a blast. I haven't ridden at the beach yet but I expect that to be awesome too. Great bike and I am very happy I bought it!
