Cannondale History

Joe Montgomery started Cannondale at the Cannondale train station in Wilton, Connecticut. The company’s initial product is the Bugger, the world’s first bicycle-towed trailer. A rolling backpack, the Bugger rides on an angle (not unlike the pack it replaces) and transfers all excess weight directly to the road by its own tires. No weight is added to the bicycle itself.

Today Cannondale makes a wide variety of bikes and even sponsors a cycling team on the world tour and several developmental cycling teams as well.
