A limited edition of 250 Cannondale OnBikes are now available.
The erstwhile high-end bicycle manufacturer went for clean lines and unorthodox profiles for this $6,150 transportation statement.
From the Cannondale website:
Form meets function: Every millimeter of the onBike has been thoughtfully crafted to create a work of art. Ride it and then hang it on the wall. It’s a masterpiece on the road and the gallery.
Available only in black (matte), the cycle’s drive and gears are whisked out of sight, enclosed in a sleek billet-carved sheath that becomes part of the structural frame and connects the rear wheel.
All of the brake cables are also enclosed, and run down the front wheel on a single side, counter-balancing the chain case.
The casing around the drivetrain should keep out dirt, avert misalignment and provide better performance over time.
Perhaps we could get a bicycle loan for this one?
