From your commute to the local 'cross series, Cannondale's CAADX Ultegra is the right choice. The CAADX aluminum frame offers low weight and incredible efficiency, while the SAVE stays and carbon fork ensure a smooth ride. FSA cranks with a stiff BB30 bottom bracket, as well as cross-specific chainrings, ensure efficient pedaling and the right gearing. The 11-speed Shimano Ultegra drivetrain provides smooth shifting on city streets and muddy race courses alike, while sturdy Maddux wheels are ready for whatever the course has in store. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes provide great stopping power, even in wet, sloppy conditions, while the Schwalbe 'cross tires hook up through everything from grass to gravel. Topped off with high-quality components and saddle from Cannondale, this bike has comfort and performance to spare.

I use this bike as my daily commuter. Since my commute is 50% trail I figured this would be a good bike. Powerful brakes decent weight. I swapped the wheels for lighter Stan's Grails and havent looked back. I've done CX races as well as ridden this bike on numerous mountain bike trails. After almost two years of regular, hard use this bike has been a pleasure to ride. I ride nearly every day - road, mtn and gravel, and this bike is the one I ride most. Love it.
I'm 64 years old, 189 pounds and not a rough rider. Cannondale advertises the CAADX Ultegra as a rugged bike, but my bike hasn't performed well on decent road surfaces. I had nothing but trouble with this bike, before and after the warranty period. First, soon after I purchased the bike, the Ultegra drive train was faulty and fortunately was replaced under warranty. After the warranty expired, the brakes failed twice and I had to have them changed out for higher end hydraulic brakes, which cost me over $500. Throughout and after the warranty period, the spokes broke regularly. In my opinion. the bike was unsafe when I bought it. My experience with Cannondale support was a great disappointment. After the series of problems that I had with the CAADX, they should have helped me out with new rims. Unfortunately, they don't stand by their products.
