“Due to the overwhelming positive response from the cycling community and beyond, Cannondale has committed to bringing the ON concept bike into production in the near future.”
Great! I am glad to hear it. I first posted the student-designed Cannondale Jackknife concept bike back in January of 2006. At the time, I didn’t expect the concept to actually evolve into something that would eventually make it into the Cannondale line. Even when I saw the ON concept bike that was unveiled at Eurobike, I didn’t really expect it to progress any further than the show bike stage. Well, it appears that the concept really is moving closer to a spot in the Cannondale product line. I expect to see some design changes before the ON becomes a real production bike, but I am glad to hear that the idea is moving forward. I will be anxious to see the final iteration of this design soon and yeah; I’ll add my name to the growing list of people who want to give it a test ride.
