Road bike light and super comfortable too, Cannondale's Quick SL 1 is perfect for all your riding. It boasts an efficient aluminum frame and a carbon fork that naturally soak up road vibrations for a velvety-smooth ride. For floating up hills and flying along on the flats, you've got a compsct Shimano drivetrain and aero Element wheels. And, for excellent braking, the Quick 1 sports powerful linear-pull brakes. Other noteworthy features include the quality Cannondale components, the sweet C-dale saddle and grippy, tough Kenda tires. From joining group rides, to getting in better shape, to tackling charity and century rides — do it all on the Quick!
Cannondale's SAVE rear stays create a micro suspension system that allows the rear wheel to track the ground, improving comfort, control, traction and handling. This allows the bike to roll faster, accelerate better and corner harder without affecting pedaling efficiency.
BB30 is an oversize bottom bracket standard that boosts stiffness and decreases weight. BB30 bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into compatible frames, meaning there are no heavy external cups to thread in. And, BB30 cranksets feature 30mm-diameter spindles (standard spindles are smaller) for greater pedaling efficiency and increased power transfer.

This is by far the best flat bar rec bike for the money. I compared this to Trek, Specialized, Cannondale Quick Carbon, etc. Although the carbon bikes are "cool", there is no clear advantage to spend 2-3 k for a high-end rec bike. If you want the ultimate road bike, then by a "true" road bike. The SL 1 is a competitive, comfortable, fast, and great looking rec bike. It does it all!
