Description

Think of this bike as a personal trainer and a personal chariot all wrapped into one. Get in shape, get to work, or just have fun, Cannondale's Quick 6 features a light, efficient aluminum frame that effortlessly zips down the road. It offers plenty of comfort, too, thanks to the upright riding position and curved rear frame that flexes ever so slightly for a smooth ride. What's more, it boasts easy-rolling 700c wheels and a Shimano 21-speed drivetrain with all the right gears for the ups and downs. The Quick also sports powerful linear-pull brakes, lightweight Cannondale aluminum components, a plush seat and reliable Kenda tires.

Features & Info

SAVE stays

Cannondale's SAVE rear stays create a micro suspension system that allows the rear wheel to track the ground, improving comfort, control, traction and handling. This allows the bike to roll faster, accelerate better and corner harder without affecting pedaling efficiency.

Excellent Ride, Great Price! I am happy I have one!

Pros:
Fast, Lightweight, Versatile, Fun To Ride
Cons:
Best Uses:
Gravel Trails, Commuting/City
I bought this bike in early April at Pro Bikes in Monroeville, PA. The staff there were very helpful and selected this for me based on my needs. I had not ridden a bicycle in probably 20 years and wanted to get back into it. So far they have been spot on. I love riding it, they adjusted it perfectly. I have been riding pretty much daily ever since without discomfort or any aches. This is really top notch bike and it looks very cool too.

I bought this bike last fall from the Bike Rack in Omaha NE and just flat out love it. It is the first bike I've owned that has never left me with a sore back, on rides up to 30 miles so far. My Wife got the womens version at the same time and is hooked on riding.

Nice Bike, That

Pros:
Durable, Lightweight
Cons:
Best Uses:
Bummed out because seat post badly scratched when adjusting seat on new bike. Semi-flat black paint hideously scratched. Possible cause ~ dealer did not sand burs inside SP frame tube prior to installing seat (as instructed in manual). I'm very particuular about maintaining my stuff. Had to wrap electrical tape around post to hide said damage. Ouch!

Love it!

Pros:
Great Components, Lightweight, Durable
Cons:
Best Uses:
Pavement, Commuting
I grabbed the Q6 at Prov-cycle and have put close to 100 miles on it. I did change out the seat for one with a bit more padding. I commute on this bike 9 miles each way and it is very smooth. I personally think the gearing could be a bit better for speed but I avg 15-22 mph without much efort.

Great Bike

Pros:
Durable, Good ride and value, Lightweight, Great Components
Cons:
none
Best Uses:
Good on park trails, Pavement
I ride a bike very seldom, but I enjoy riding when I do. Son #2 borrowed my old bike and left it at a friend's where it was stolen. So I wanted a good bike even though I don't ride that much. This bike really fits my needs and was an excellent value. Son #2 has ridden it and likes it too, but won't be borrowing it anytime soon. [...]

Lives up to it's name: Quick

Pros:
Great all around bike, Fast, Great Components, Lightweight, Smooth Ride, Durable
Cons:
Best Uses:
Pavement, Commuting
I got this bike from Montgomery Cyclery as a birthday present. I wanted a bike that was like a road bike, but gave me the flat handlebars and upright position that I was used to on my old mountain bike. I use this bike to go on long distance rides and for commuting to school. It's a great way to save gas. The Cannondale Quick 6 is a great bike that fulfills all these things. It's light wieght, gives a very comfortable ride, shifts very smoothly, and is incredibly fun to ride. You get a lot of high grade components for a very reasonable price.
