Maybe at first glance, the Cannondale Hooligan 1 might seem out of place and the name they chose a bit of a misnomer. But after throwing a leg over this urban bike, the ideas become much clearer. The Hooligan is an exercise in the fun factor. Its nice compact size and 3-speed internal gearing makes for navigating busy traffic, tight alleyways and the stairs up to your office a breeze. When 5 o’clock strolls around to roll home from work, remove your office jacket, loosen the tie and drop your seat, you have a stout 20-inch BMX style aluminum frame and wheels to fool around on. Try out the the urban park, jump any curb in sight, and or wheelie all the way back home if you wish! Its bash guard will keep your pants clean and prevent any dropped chains. And another bonus is you have Shimano mechanical disc brakes for a ton of stop-and-go streets clogged with car traffic. The new model proves that urban bike commutes don’t have to be anywhere close to boring. Leave boring to those sad people who drove their cars to work.
