Cannondale Treadwell 2 WOW Mens Cruiser Bike 2020 - Blue-Pink
Cool. Connected. Capable. Lycra not required.
The Cannondale Treadwell.
When you were a kid, it’s likely your bike was crucial to your life. You would casually let it fall outside your house, outside your friend’s house, the park, the sweet shop. It was your freedom. You could avoid the traffic, go down the little alleys. You still can! Cannondale want to remind you how easy it is, how useful it is and how much fun you’ll have.
Cannondale make premium bikes. For racing, for joy riding, for mountains, for fun. Now they’ve launched a range of urban bikes. The Treadwell is a great ride. It’s comfortable enough to keep going for miles, capable enough to handle all manner of terrain. It has a retro/dirt bike look about it, with a wide handlebar and big fat tyres.
Not just a looker, the design screams comfort. A plush, padded seat and a frame shape that suggests you sit up and take in the view. It has a lightweight aluminium alloy frame, easy to carry up the stairs should you need to. It might not be a racing bike but it’s fast enough and perfect for local journeys when you might usually jump in the car.
You would have loved this when you were a kid: the Treadwell has a sensor built into the front wheel hub. Introduce it to your phone and it will record every journey. It will tell you the distance travelled, how fast you go and how many calories you’ve burned. And if that doesn’t convince you, you can find out how many grams of carbon emissions you’ve saved by not taking the car.
They’ve thought of everything – a silicone strip runs along the top tube, protecting your aluminium frame when you lean it outside the sweet shop.
The Treadwell 2 has a SmartForm C3 alloy frame. It runs a 1 x 9 speed drivetrain and includes hydraulic disc brakes. It also comes with a wheel sensor with Cannondale App connectivity.

Ready to rideEvery bike from Start Fitness is fully checked & assembled before despatch and will arrive, almost, ready to ride. Each bike is assembled by one of our CyTech accredited mechanics and then packed into one of our custom boxes.
This process has a lead time of 7-10 working days. Unfortunately during peak times this may be slightly delayed. We will however, aim to despatch your bike as quickly as possible. Minimal assembly, with basic tools, is required before you can ride. Assembly tools are not usually included. Please note: Some bikes are not supplied with pedals. Manufacturers don’t know if you want flat or clipless pedals - rather than send the bike with the wrong type, they leave the choice for you to make.
Making sure you are homeOnce fully checked and boxed, we will contact you to book a delivery date. Our bikes are despatched on a next working day service (excludes weekends & bank holidays) for UK mainland orders, or a two day service to Northern Ireland and outlying Scottish areas. European bike deliveries usually take approximately one week.
Taking DeliveryAny mechanical or cosmetic issues need to be reported to us within one week of the delivery date. If you do not plan on using the bike straight away, we advise that you remove it from the box and check it over ASAP as we cannot be responsible for any reported issues (other than standard warranty issues) later than one week from the date that the bicycle was delivered.
First ServiceAfter a few weeks of riding (we recommend around 6-8 weeks, regardless of how much the bike has been used), a new bike will need a service to make final adjustments and to re-check all nuts and bolts. This is necessary as the bike goes through a ‘bedding in’ phase, after which, final adjustment may be necessary. We recommend that this is carried out by a CyTech qualified mechanic.
It is important to have these checks carried out to prevent any avoidable problems which may not be covered by warranty and to ensure the smooth running of your bicycle. If you’re local to us, we’re able to offer this first service free of charge* at our Newcastle store (NE1 6JE). You’ll just need to call our workshop on 0191 917 3825 to book your service in, and don’t forget to bring your proof of purchase when you drop the bike off with us.
If you’ve had the bike delivered, it will be your responsibility to ensure a first service is carried out at a trusted bike shop local to you, preferably by a Cytech certified mechanic. Start Fitness are unfortunately not able to cover any costs associated with this service if carried out by another store.
*Please note that this complimentary check-over does not include any labour to replace worn parts or to fit new accessories. All bikes should be delivered to us in a clean and serviceable condition, or a £15 cleaning charge will be payable.
Bike ServicingBicycles need to be serviced regularly, as a guideline we would advise on at least one full service per year and/or a standard service twice a year. If the bike is used regularly in adverse conditions, more regular servicing may be required.
