Will just purchased a 2007 Cannondale Rush 4. I find my reaction evenly divided between three poles:
Excitement on his behalf, because the Rush has the reputation of being a rather sweet marathoner.
Anticipation of the chance for a test ride.
Dread of the man-beating I can sense descending upon me the next time we attack hilly terrain together.
In other words, “Yay!”, “Woohoo!”, and “Oy” all at once.

For a brief moment I caught myself thinking “only $1799, not bad… maybe I should get a new bike.”
Then I thought “Cannondale… err… waddabout: KTM, Yamaha, Suzuki…”
If my tour of duty over here isn’t extended, I can’t wait to come back an buy a dirt bike (well maybe after a Toto Washlet toilet seat.)
And if you think it’s a cheaters way out of a workout, you’ve never ridden a MX bike.
Actually, I’m so clueless at bikes that I didn’t even know what kind I got.
What I ACTUALLY got was a Rush 5, which looks like this:
Cheaper, felt just the same, still a huge advance over my previous bike. Then again, my previous bike was a hybrid.
