    Counterfeit Cannondales?

    Anyone have any experience with bikes such as this:

    http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/34...mate_Road.html

    Clearly it must be a fake, but I was curious if this is a BS ad, or if these are "unauthorized production" cannondales from their new chinese factory?

    Ok, looking at the specifics...It is a carbon, 24-speed, 22 inch wheels, and it is foldable. None of that sounds like a high end carbon road bike. Unless someone has come out with 12 speed cassettes, you are looking at a 3x8 drivetrain. Not too many hi end Cdales come with that combo. I think this is a bad scam. Not even close on the details.
    Cyclists really need to learn a little Rule #5.
