30 Day Test Ride

All the convenience of buying online, without the risk
When you buy a new bike at full RRP from rutlandcycling.com, you can now benefit from the added reassurance of our Rutland 30-day test ride. Once your new bike arrives, you can ride it as your own for 30 days, and we're confident you'll love it! However, if it's not right for you, we'll exchange it for another model. (There's a nominal charge of £10 for us to collect your bike - just make sure you keep the box your bike arrived in.)

On which bikes is the 30-day test ride available?
The Rutland 30-day test ride is available on all full price, non-discounted bikes available for home delivery on rutlandcycling.com. It is not available on discounted or special offer bikes, click and collect bikes, bikes bought on finance, bikes bought through Cyclescheme, or bikes bought in store. This offer is only available on bikes delivered to mainland UK addresses.

How does the test ride work?
Your 30-day test ride starts from the date your bike is delivered. You must notify us by email within 30 calendar days of delivery that you intend to return the bike within this scheme. This offer applies to all bikes purchased on or after 14th August 2014. To ensure you remain eligible, we would ask that you adopt a 'fair usage' attitude during the test ride period, and make sure there is no damage to the bike outside of the minimal wear you would expect from a bike ridden for 30 days or a few rides. Please note that any damage to the bike, including damage from incorrect assembly, will invalidate the test ride.

How many times can I use the 30-day test ride?
We will allow up to two exchanges within this scheme.

    The 2016 Cannondale CAAD8 Claris 8 is a high performance, lightweight racing bike. Featuring Cannondale's award-winning advanced aluminium frame at the heart, this bike is exciting, comfortable...and very fast.

    The aluminium frame at the heart of the CAAD8 brings a remarkable level of performance to this entry-level road bike, taking advantage of Cannondale's expertise in aluminium engineering. Cannondale aluminium frames are in a league of their own, and if you're looking for the best frame at the most competitive price point then you won't go wrong with the CAAD8. Jump on this bike and you'll immediately feel like you are riding something special.

    Featuring advanced doublepass welds on the frame for a smooth and high quality finish, this bike provides an affordable introduction into performance racing bikes. Ride harder and faster all day long with the compliant SAVE rear stays, which will absorb some of the road buzz on bumpy surfaces, giving you a smoother ride. 

    The overall ride-feel is unmistakably Cannondale - exciting but comfortable...and very fast. For the geometry, Cannondale have taken their 'race-ready' setup from the SuperSix Evo which results in a fast riding position, however a slightly taller headtube on the CAAD8 provides a slightly more upright position for improved comfort and visibility on the roads. The headtube is also machined externally so it is stiffer and therefore offers more responsive handling in the corners. This stiffness is continued into an oversized bottom bracket area. This again offers improved power transfer through each pedal stroke. 

    Shimano Claris gearing delivers a smooth, reliable gear change with a race ready double chainset up front and 12-28 ratio on the back. Matched with a responsive frame and Maddux wheels, the CAAD8 will speed ahead of the competition on race day.

    Very happy with this bike! For comfort, ride quality & value for money – can’t fault it, Ive done a few 40-50 mile rides now and no discomfort at all. If Im being picky the gears aren’t the smoothest but actually better than I was expecting for a sub £600 bike. Gears, wheels and tyres can all be upgraded (when the other half lets me!!)Roll on the summer!!

    Nice bike at reasonable price. I wasnt looking for high end bike and therefore this ticked most of the boxes and kept within my budget. Nice frame and shimano claris more than adequate for the riding I do but would recommend upgrade to cheaper pedals supplied with the bike. Kept well informed by Rutland cycles on delivery.

    Brilliant bike, hard to see how you could find a better frameset at this price. Fast, light, responsive, but also comfortable. I have upgraded groupset and wheels straight away, so cant comment on those. Cannondale bars, stem, seatpost and saddle all perfectly good. Black/White colour option in my opinion looks fantastic. Great service from Rutland Cycling.

    What a bike, I like to keep my bikes cheap as not amount of cash spent on a bike makes you a better rider, this is a fitness not a equipment sport. I bought the cheapest CAAD8 because this bike is all about the frame. No BB30 can be a plus or a minus depending the camp you sit in but I prefer without. The brakes are so/so but I am coming from disk on my steel road bike and v-brakes on my xc bike so I dont think im in a place to really talk about the brakes, I will be fitting higher end pads so perhaps that will sort thinks out somewhat. the gears off the rear are flawless, I have shifted worse shifter twice the price but the front is horrible not just clunky but it bangs moving down to the smaller ring...I dont know what to blame but I imagine its a faulty front derailleur not issue at this price point I will replace and not moan. The seat isnt for me but my mate prefers it to his so we swapped and Im happy hes happy. The wheels are not true out the box but took them to my local bike shop and had the trued...£15 it cost me and the time it took as 20 min maybe less and after 400 miles the wheels are perfect and I bounce up kerbs and stuff so no complaints. Now onto the frame...its a joy, a real riders frame, if your looking at this you know its not as aggressive as the CAAD10 but this is a much better mileage bike...ok its no tour bike for comfort but it give you a bit of both worlds its still aggressive but not so much it cant be rode heavy miles....I cant stress this enough, I have been riding seriously for 20+ years and this is the best bike I have ever owned, not the best parts but thats up-gradable down the line when this stuff is past its best. For £400 you wont find better. 2016 is the last year to get this frame as cannondale are moving the CAAD8 out and putting in the CAAD Optimo in it place and that is but a CAAD12 with low grade aluminium. If you want a full on in your face race bike get a 10/12/ next years optimo but if you want a best of both worlds but closer to race than not, super comfortable bike the CAAD8 is the riders bike.

    Hi, My name is

    My question about Cannondale CAAD8 Claris 8 2016 Road Bike Black is...
  • I am looking to buy this bike ASAP. My height is slightly over 5"11 and my inside leg is 31 inches, which would be the best frame size for myself?
    Question asked by Oliver Harding on Nov 7 2016 9:46PM
    Hello Oliver So I would recommend that from fitting in store the Cannondale cycles come up a little big compared to a specialized, giant, trek sizing. Im about the same measurements to you and would go for the 56cm for the best fit as was good for me the last time I had a cannondale. cheers

  • Is there room for fitting the crud mk2 mudguards with 25c or 28c tyres?
    Question asked by Fergus on Oct 30 2016 1:46PM
    If you are running the 25c tyres, you can fit these, if you are running 28c's you should be able to fit it, you would just be a bit tight on your clearance.

  • Is there provision on this model for the fitting of mudguards?
    Question asked by Adam on Oct 22 2016 12:19AM
    Sadly this doesn't have mudguard mounts, you would have to use QR mounted mudguards for this.

  • Is this bike suitable for Ladies - and if so, i'm 5'5", inside leg 28/9 which size bike would you recommend. Thank you.
    Question asked by Jules on Oct 4 2016 10:05PM
    There is nothing stopping a lady riding this bike, for your height and leg length, I would pop you on a 48cm frame.

  • Hi, I can't get into the shop as I'm based too far away. I'm 6ft 2(188cm) and my inside leg measurement is 34 inches if that helps narrow it down. Thanks
    Question asked by Gary on Sep 28 2016 12:16PM
    Thank you for that! Going off that, I'd put you on a 58cm frame.
    Your question was answered by ,
  • Hi, this would be my first road bike. I'm 6ft 2, would I need the 58 or 61? Thanks
    Question asked by Gary on Sep 28 2016 9:30AM
    Going off your height alone, you are right on the border of the two sizes, I would recommend to come in store, try both and see which works best for you, without knowing your inside leg length, I couldn't say for definite.

  • Hi, another bike frame size question, I'm 5'6", inside leg 30". Is that a 51cm frame?
    Question asked by Martin on Sep 27 2016 11:34PM
    I wouldn't have any issues popping you on that size frame.

  • Hi I'm considering getting a Caad8, but would like advice on sizing please. I'm 5ft 10 with an inside leg measurement of 31/32 inches? Would 54cm frame be suitable please? Many thanks
    Question asked by Carl on Sep 26 2016 8:29PM
    Going off your measurements, I'd be more than happy to put you on a 54cm frame.

  • I am 5ft 2" but I am growing, which bike size would you recommend please?
    Question asked by Ben on Sep 20 2016 8:02PM
    It all depends on how quickly you are growing I'm afraid. at 5'2", I'd put you on a 48cm frame, but 5'5", I'd put you on a 50cm. The best thing to do would be to pop into one of our stores and try the sizes out to see which feels best for you.

  • What is the max rear and front wheel size? Can it mount 28mm rear and 25mm front tires? Thanks
    Question asked by Luca on Aug 17 2016 6:18PM
    This can accommodate up to 28c tyres, you would struggle with anything more.

  • I am not very technically minded, how much assembly of the bike would be required once delivered ? thank you.
    Question asked by Martin on Jun 30 2016 10:10AM
    You would need to pop the pedals on, turn the handlebars back to straight and adjust the saddle for your height, everything else would have been taken care of for you.

  • How much does this bike weigh ?
    Question asked by kelsey on Jun 13 2016 6:05PM
    Unfortunately due to the amount of variables that affect a bikes weight, we aren't supplied with a published weight from manufacturer I'm afraid. That being said, the CAAD8 is a very high-performance aluminium frame and will be the same - if not lighter - weight than similarly priced competitors. -James

    The 2016 Cannondale CAAD8 Claris 8 is a high performance, lightweight racing bike. Featuring Cannondale's award-winning advanced aluminium frame at the heart, this bike is exciting, comfortable...and very fast.

    The aluminium frame at the heart of the CAAD8 brings a remarkable level of performance to this entry-level road bike, taking advantage of Cannondale's expertise in aluminium engineering. Cannondale aluminium frames are in a league of their own, and if you're looking for the best frame at the most competitive price point then you won't go wrong with the CAAD8. Jump on this bike and you'll immediately feel like you are riding something special.

    Featuring advanced doublepass welds on the frame for a smooth and high quality finish, this bike provides an affordable introduction into performance racing bikes. Ride harder and faster all day long with the compliant SAVE rear stays, which will absorb some of the road buzz on bumpy surfaces, giving you a smoother ride. 

    The overall ride-feel is unmistakably Cannondale - exciting but comfortable...and very fast. For the geometry, Cannondale have taken their 'race-ready' setup from the SuperSix Evo which results in a fast riding position, however a slightly taller headtube on the CAAD8 provides a slightly more upright position for improved comfort and visibility on the roads. The headtube is also machined externally so it is stiffer and therefore offers more responsive handling in the corners. This stiffness is continued into an oversized bottom bracket area. This again offers improved power transfer through each pedal stroke. 

    Shimano Claris gearing delivers a smooth, reliable gear change with a race ready double chainset up front and 12-28 ratio on the back. Matched with a responsive frame and Maddux wheels, the CAAD8 will speed ahead of the competition on race day.
