Comments:

Got the Bad Boy 1 a couple weeks ago and love it! Had to change out the handlebars...the integrated light is ineffective and shines up in your face. When told to flip it over, I laughed...that brought the stem/bar combination to more of a negative rise than an aggressive road bike. As good of an idea as this light is, Cannondale missed the mark on this one. I also changed the grips to some Ergos and the tires to some Panaracer commuters with a little bit of tread, but that's to be expected when considering personal preference. The ride, components and black matte finish are sweet! Aside from a couple minor adjustments mentioned above, this ride is perfect for tooling around town, taking it on the prairie path and exploring Chicago suburbs. It's a blast!

    I bought the BB1 two weeks ago and love it. It is a light weight and fast while providing a comfortable ride. I have put almost 300 miles on it already and enjoyed every mile of it. It did take me a little while to get used to the seat and it does not always down shift smoothly on a incline.
