    Shortest chain stays on the market at 456mm?
    Not so much. I realize he said “with the fattest tire”
    but this statement still doesn’t make sense given the specs outlined.

    The 2016 Farely for instance comes with 440m stays.

      Matter Cycles 420mm, Moonmen#9 418mm with a bud are the shortest, but those are custom bikes. Salsa and Advocate both have rear stays that are shorter than 440 as well.

        Right, my point being Cannondale is nowhere close. ūüôā So what are they thinking here? They’re either being intentionaly disingenuous or they’re ignorant of what their competitors are doing.
        So much for “best dressed” eh?
        Super silly-expensive fork though – they have that prize locked up. I really want to like these bikes, and I think the “2” model is sexy, just don’t like the spec and long’ish stays.

          I think we’ll hold off on forming any final opinions till we are allowed to ride one. Picking out one inaccuracy in Cannondale’s description of their new bike and then calling the Olaf fork “super silly” seems a bit hasty. We base our opinions on real ride experience. We look forward to comparing the lefty to the Bluto and have no concerns with the stated chain stay length of the Fat CAAD. Any further debate or speculation seems premature, until we get to ride the Fat CAAD.

            Fattest tires (the farley is speced with a 3.8 with those 440’s)

            The shortest stays with a 5.0 is correct when comparing spec.

    So what is the actual Q factor?
