If "fast" and "fun" were baskets, you wouldn't want to put all of your eggs into either, right? Cannondale's Trail 3 understands you've got to be a jack-of-all-bikes. Is it fast? Yes. Is it fun? Oh boy, it is indeed. 27 speeds courtesy of the Alivio/Deore drivetrain carry you uphill and down with crisp shifts and a wide range of gears. Aluminum 27.5-inchs Alex rims are the bicycle equivalent to rolling on dubs, and WTB BeeLine tires supply all the traction and durability you could ever ask for. Braking, you ask? Why yes, the Shimano hydraulic discs do have superb stopping power and modulation! Cannondale supplies the bar and stem for a tight-handling front end and a comfortable riding position.
