2016 Cannondale Trigger 3

Cannondale's Trigger 3 is an XC-fast, all-mountain-capable trail ride that hammers the climbs and descends like a demon. Cannondale built their reputation on aluminum frames, and their revolutionary SmartFormed tech delivers low weight, quick pedal response, and high-end ride quality. Up front, a 140mm Fox 34 Float fork leads the way, and out back a Fox DYAD shock boasts 140mm of rider-tunable, big-hit-swallowing suspension that can be adjusted by a bar-mounted lever to 85mm when it's time to ascend. Up or down, a Deore/XT drivetrain from Shimano has all the right gears, and features Shimano's smooth, reliable shifting. WTB Frequency rims and Formula hubs build into a light, smooth, and sturdy wheelset, and when they're paired with grippy Schwalbe Nobby Nic tires, the Trigger is ready for whatever terrain lays ahead. And you will be too, with the Trans-X dropper seatpost that lets you get you raise and lower your saddle in an instant for charging hard. You have to put a stop to the fun sometime, and Shimano's SLX disc brakes make it easy to scrub speed. A selection of Cannondale's own light components and a supportive WTB saddle are just as all-mountain as the rest of the bike.

Good bike overal;very happy with the purchase. Fox Dyad rear shock works great once it's dialed in. Make sure you get the pressures right. Front shock has 3 modes: climb, trail and downhill. Make sure your dealer routes the cable for the seat-post dropper properly. The Magura front break became very squishy on the first ride. Had the dealer re-bled it twice before it started working. I upgraded to a 40 mm riser handle bar. at 6'1" the stock flat bar was not ideal for my lower back.
