My bike is a 2015...same bike. I really want to love this bike as it's the most expensive bike I've ever bought. The components are OK, though the brakes are entry level discs and the overall quality--fit and finish--is also good. I doubt the flat paint will hold up as well as a glossy finish and there is already a spot where a cable is rubbing it down. The bike handles pretty well but it's also on the heavy side. Still, I reckoned, it would be tough enough to handle Denver's roads and not stand out to thieves. The 'but' is a pretty big one. I'm already on my second HeadShock cartridge and it, too, is leaking. It starts with telltale dirt accumulation around the bottom of the rubber gator, then the oil starts dripping out of the bottom of the shock, after which safe riding is impossible. Cannondale replaced the first one (requiring FACTORY service and three weeks' downtime) without a whimper but they're balking at doing it again. It's $120 to get it done and it has to be done by Cannondale. Before the shock fails, it works really well. I take my bike out two to three times a month, mostly on concrete bike paths, so abuse isn't a factor. Cannondale makes good bikes--my last one was going strong after twelve years...it was stolen or I'd still be riding it. I'd heartily recommend any of its other frames...but I'd go for one with RockShox forks. I'm afraid I'll be buying a LOT of expensive cartridges for this bike until I get tired of it and trade it in for something more durable...
