regarding the lefty crosser:
"Still, Rudell offered up details on the Slate, Cannondale's drop-bar bike for all roads meant to appeal to the “anti-road” rider. The 650b bike comes spec’d with 30-millimeter Lefty fork and 42c tires. Its shorter chainstays and lower bottom bracket allow it to retain efficiency on the road with pretty fat tires, Rudell said. It comes in 105, Ultegra and Force CX1 builds for $2,950 to $4,290. And while it doesn’t come spec'd with a dropper post, it’s dropper compatible."
