One of the best things about writing this blog is the email that I receive. Last week, Lee at Cannondale sent me this shot of the monoblade front suspension system (I hesitate to call it a fork) from the prototype Cannondale Magic mountain bike. The idea was that this trailing-link front suspension would absorb bumps like a skier’s knees. Wow, what a blast from the past! I am sure many of you will remember this mountain bike design by Alex and Skooks Pong. I was definitely excited about this concept bike when I first saw it in the early nineties. I hadn’t heard much about it lately, so I was glad to find out that they still have a prototype together at the Cannondale offices in Connecticut. Does anyone besides me want to see a few additional pictures of this bike? If enough of you are interested, maybe Lee will polish this bare aluminum beauty and take a few nice glamour shots that I can post here. What do you think? Leave a comment if you interested in seeing more pictures of this bike, which I think was way ahead of its time.
