    I am looking to buy a new bike this Spring. Mainly looking for a Hybrid/Commuter type bike. Right now I have my sights set on a Cannondale Bad Boy. Does anyone have any experience with this bike? What others should I be looking into?

    Personally I hate Cannondale...I find them quite ugly and not special.

    I like KONA personally, some may say they have some outdated dual suspension technology but i have had good experience in their bikes.

    What's your price range though?

    You have to ride cannondales at a slight angle which can be a bit weird if you are not used to it, they are just not perfectly balanced like a duel fork bike! They are nice bikes, just not what I really like! I ride specialized!!

    exactly why i hate cannondale. sounds so counter productive.
    Specialized is a safe bet. Trek has some sweet road bikes but I was never into Trek myself.
    Yeti has some sweet mtn. bikes.

    I was at a bike shop in walnut creek here, and they had a sweet carbon fiber yeti all mtn bike dual suspension, about $3k or $4k, just looked like a freaking tank. I wish I could afford a sweet trail bike like Yeti.
    kept looking at it and touching it haha.

    I already have a Specialized (older MTN bike). I am looking for more of a Hybrid bike. I am not sold on a single fork as Cannondale also has the Bad Boy in a dual fork as well. If I were to go with a MTN bike....I would defintely go with a Specialized.
