Expert Review

Cannondale’s Bad Boy 4 looks tough with a sleeper paint job and clean lines which conjure a James Bond vibe and it performs with equal zeal. The Bad Boy’s 6061 aluminum frame is crafted with innovative tube shapes which keep the bike light and responsive, along with options for rigid or suspension forks giving you precise handling and a smooth ride. True to its name, the Bad Boy’s geometry tilts toward the aggressive side for optimum performance on all kinds of roads while maintaining a comfortably upright position so you can see what lays ahead. Speaking of good vision, several Bad Boy models are built with a one-piece bar and stem with a handy integrated light for after-hours miles.

Shimano hosts the eight speed drivetrain for all the gears you’ll need to meet the demands of ever changing terrain while powerful disc brakes deliver vise-like grip for superb speed control. WTB ThickSlick tires are on the narrow side for a hybrid of this caliber and slicks only provide so much traction when it gets wet; however, you can easily swap the tires out to keep pace with changing road conditions. Double wall, 32-hole rims provide long-life strength and give the bike that extra edge to handle rough pavement, gravel, and even mildly rugged dirt trails.Rating: 4/5
