Cannondale releases new Bad Boy urban bike

Published March 30, 2017

WILTON, Ct. (BRAIN) — Cannondale has released a completely redesigned Bad Boy, an urban commuter bike. 

"Bad Boy was the original lean and mean urban bike and has always been at the forefront of commuter bikes," said Burton Avery, urban product manager at Cannondale. "It's a bike known for its iconic look. Therefore, we honored its minimal, stripped down style, while taking integration and design to the next level."

All Bad Boy models have a new one-piece Lefty rigid fork. The Bad Boy 1 and 2 feature the Lightpipe Lefty, an integrated and micro-USB rechargeable SuperNova LED light stripe for increased visibility. The 1 and 2 models also have lights in the seatpost for added rearward visibility.

The frame's headtube and downtube have been 3D-forged from a single block of aluminum for a seamlessly sleek look.

The Bad Boy has 650b wheels paired with wide tires for added comfort and puncture protection. All Bad Boy models feature disc brakes, internal cable routing, black-on-black reflective graphical elements, and an integrated and durable rubber strip along the top tube to protect the frame.

Bad Boy is available in four models ranging from $870 to $1,840.
