Cannondale Bad Boy Ultra 2011 Hybrid Bike

Cannondale Bad Boy Ultra Hybrid Bike

In spite of its name the Cannondale Bad Boy Ultra wants to be ridden well and provides you with the perfect platform to achieve this, whether you are heading to or from work or cruising around your neighbourhood in your time off. The Ultra tag does make the price of ownership rather steep for what many might consider to be a casual bike. However, this is not just money down the drain as you get some seriously good components and high-end features which you really want to see for this outlay. The Bad Boy Ultra benefits from a bespoke feel because its frame and components have been constructed by hand. Its all black finish may be ironically flashy but for anyone who wants a bike that looks good and backs this up with stellar performance, the Bad Boy Ultra may be a good choice.

The handmade aluminium frame is light but has also been made to offer superior stiffness to ensure that you can put as much power down as possible. Anyone who has had to pull away from the traffic lights from a standing start will know how much of a benefit this can be. This makes it great for tackling urban environments and whilst it is in the hybrid category, the Cannondale Bad Boy Ultra 2011 is really intended to be a commuter’s best friend. A lack of obvious places to store a bag or attach a basket is a pity but such adornments would feel thoroughly out of place on this bike.

As Henry Ford once said, you can have any colour as long as it is black. The Cannondale Bad Boy Ultra is a dark phantom from top to tail but to make sure that this is not a safety hazard, it has been equipped with reflective decals that will keep the rider a little more visible. I am a real fan of this blacked out look but it might be considered a little drab by some and a little too fashionable by others.
