Cannondale Flat Bar Road Bikes

For a combination of performance, comfort, practicality and style that is unmatched, choose a Cannondale flat bar road bike. Sleek shapes and performance-minded components let these bikes accelerate and maneuver much like the road racers they are modeled after. The addition of flat bars and a balanced seating position mean they’re just as happy riding to the grocery store as they are charging up the local hill.

Many of us want a fast and nimble ride when making the traverse through town, but we would rather not endure the finicky drivetrains and hunched-over riding position of a full race bike. Thanks to Cannondale flat bar road bikes, we don’t have to. These models feature components that are easy to live with and dependable, such as Shimano shifters and derailleurs as well as hydraulic disc brakes. This winning combination of race technology and commuter pragmatism makes Cannondale flat bar road bikes ideal for the blue-collar “cyclismo”.

Flat Bars Straighten the Curves

It’s no secret that this style of bike has become popular with urban cyclists. Flat bar road bikes offer the engaging riding experience many demand at a great value. Cannondale has put their unique spin on this segment, offering models that borrow from the cyclocross discipline such as the Cannondale Quick CX 4, which features front suspension and knobby tires that beg for gravel trails. Then again, if you’re in training for your first crit race and can’t sacrifice the ability to commute, the Cannondale Quick 3 delivers hardcore-level performance at an attainable price point, and it does double-duty as a commuter when you’re not in a hurry. Here are a few more details about Cannondale flat bar road bikes you can find on BikeExchange:

  • Cannondale Quick 6 Bikes: The entry-level flat bar road bike from Cannondale, the Quick 6, is anything but frail. It features trigger shifters for responsive gear changes from the Shimano Altus 8-speed drivetrain and a compliant chromoly steel fork that will absorb bumps better than rigid aluminum. It’s everything you need, and nothing you don’t.

  • Cannondale Quick 4 CX Bikes: Cannondale deserves credit here for thinking about weekend warriors who indulge in cyclocross. This model features the disc brakes and knobby tires you’ll find on real CX racers. Cannondale even threw in a suspension front fork.

  • Cannondale Quick 3 Bikes: Another cyclocross-derived all-rounder, the Quick 3 picks up where the Quick 4 left off. This front-suspension touting hybrid features hydraulic disc brakes from Shimano for exceptional stopping power and a 50mm RST front fork that will flatten out trail irregularities with ease. It’s a great choice in town with friends or hot-lapping the local circuit.
