Healthy body, healthy mind, healthy planet! Accomplish all three by riding Cannondale's Quick 4. Its light, efficient aluminum frame zooms over the tarmac, and also offers plenty of comfort thanks to an upright riding position and a carbon fork that damps road vibrations. Element lightweight wheels make every ride easier and the Shimano 24-speed drivetrain provides all the right gears for the road's ups and downs. The Quick is also decked out with powerful linear-pull brakes, lightweight Cannondale aluminum components, a plush seat and grippy Kenda tires.

        I've owned the bike for eight months and ridden almost eighty hours on mostly paved road. It's a great bike, fast, solid, comfortable, shifts easily etc. I like it much better than my previous Trek hybrid. I am 65 years old and I ride mainly for exercise. Lost 50 lbs in 6 months. I am 6 ft and could have bought the size large but I went for the x large.

        Comments:

        I bought this bike for exercise and fitness. I started to use it for commuting too. The shifters are butter smooth whether on flat surfaces or going up a hill. I use it for ten to fifteen mile rides and have been very happy with it. It is more for fitness and comfort and is not a speed burner. I am over 55 and not in the best of shape but still manage 12 mph on the bike over an hour course. The seat is very hard, an add on cushion worked fine to correct that. Cannondale has good add on options available for the bike.

          I recently started cycling for a excercise. Not quite ready for a road bike, but this bike suits my level of expertise, is comfortable, and I can keep up with some of my more advanced friends. No hill in Langley can stop me. Also, the service at my LBS was great.

            I bought the Quick 4 about 3 months ago as a new cyclist and love it! I'm 6 foot 4 so I purchased the Jumbo and it feels very comfortable. I ride 3 times a week now and looking forward to increasing that as time allows. I should be trying out for the Liquigas/Cannondale team in no time...okay maybe not, but I'm having a great time!

              I purchased this bicycle at [...] (Great helpful staff)a month ago and have put well over 200 miles on it already. the bike handles great, is very nimble and fun to ride. as a side note it looks great and I cant count the number of comments I've received on this bike. Definately no regrets in purchasing this bicycle and I am looking forward too many great rides.

              I tested every bike in the category before going with the Cannondale Quick4. I've put 100 miles on it this week and couldn't be happier. The carbon fork is what sets it above the rest and I can't wait to keep using it!

                It was the best gift I've given to myself in recent years. It took me a long time to find a bike that was reasonably priced, that would fit my petite frame, that was lightweight and in a color scheme that was not pink, or purple, or light blue as it is usually the case with women bikes. I chose the Quick 4 in the white & orange scheme. It has a beautifully designed carbon fork. The bike is light, fast and responsive and it helps me climb hills with ease. I'm very happy with my new bike.

                I love this bike. Its lightweight and very quick. Brakes could be a little better, but that was to be expected. I have put about 100 miles on this bike so far and I don't have any complaints. It has the holes to mount a rack or fenders. I used to have the Trek 7.2 Fx but returned it, didn't really care for it after I bought it and put some miles on it. Very happy I traded for the Quick Four. You won't be disappointed in this bike.

                I love my 2009 Quick 4! I used to ride a Cannondale 105-equipped criterium bike years ago and loved how responsive it was. As I got older and was looking for something easier on my back to ride 6 miles each way to work, I narrowed it down to this bike, the Quick 6, and the Specialized Sirrus Elite. All three were nice rides, but I am glad that I picked the Quick 4. The components and carbon fork lead to a much better ride quality than the Quick 6, and that is important to me. Between the Quick 4 and the Specialized, there was not enough difference for me to make it worth the extra money for the Specialized bike. I prefer the Sirrus's top tube, seat stays, and cable routing, but I prefer the SRAM X5 shifters and rear derailleur on the Quick 4. I've been riding this bike heavily for a month now and have no regrets! It is a great bike at a great price point.

                  The Quick rode smooth and tight. The carbon fork worked well to dampen road vibration and provide a smooth ride. I took it for its first ride ( a 52 miler on paved rodes with hills)- it road almost as if a road bike cruising easily between 15 and 21 mph on the flats. It climbed exceedingly well on hills- some with 6-10% grade. Its push button gearinbg system worked well. For the money it is an absolutely perfect all purpose bike. While riding on grass it held up well without skidding, etc. It is a confortable riding bike. I recommend it highly.
