Walking around the streets of New York City, there are cyclists everywhere. And, it’s not just the iconic Manhattan couriers darting through traffic on fixies — it’s fitness-minded businesspeople who are tired of the same old commute.

2017 Cannondale Bad Boy 1

The Bad Boy 1 features Gates Belt drive for clean, quite commuting.

Cycling through a big city requires a bit of gumption and a durable, unassuming bike. And, that’s where the new Cannondale Bad Boy lineup comes in. Pricing for the Bad Boy 1 – 4 spans from from $870 – $1840. All frames are identical with a Lefty rigid fork rolling on 650b wheels and wide, puncture-resistant tires. On the top models, the Lefty has an integrated light strip and the seatpost features integrated tail lights — all rechargeable via USB.

The Bad Boy’s top tube features added protection against bumps and scrapes.

The top-shelf Bad Boy 1 comes complete with some great features to make your urban life even easier, included Gates Belt Drive and an internal 8-speed Shimano hub for chain-free riding. Belt drives are super quiet and won’t muck up your pants or leave you with chainring grease marks on your calf.
