Cannondale Taurine SL Hybrid 26" [Upcycled]
Do you want to ride the bull? The Taurine is the answer for the hardtail racing world. An already light design gets even lighter thanks to the high modulus carbon tubes. As a result, the frame is very light and able to dampen vibrations.
HISTORY OF HIGH MODULUS.
Anyone can stack layers of carbon fibre. But no one shapes high modulus unidirectional carbon fibres like Cannondale. The high modulus tubes of the Taurine are optimized for the characteristics, strength and lightness required by hardtail lovers.
We had lots of fun on this one and the work was extensive to bring her back. The Taurine SL1 is a multi-role bike which is comfortable in posture, aggressive enough and accommodating with its 26" wheels. The iconic Cannondale Headshok was completely dead and has been given a new lease of life. With a carbon frame, this is one hybrid commuter you don't want to mess with!
We have lovingly torn down the entire bike, bled both brakes, revived the Headshok suspension, and given her new brake pads, grips and pedals.
