Scalpels are great! I have the older spec Scalpel with a simple Float L shock.. a new frame with the Float RP3 would be fantastic (the only complaint I have with mine is that it bobs a bit under serious pedalling, something the RP3 shock would take care of)

Take a look at the Cannondale forum over at www.mtbr.com, there are a lot of Scalpel riders there, and searching through old posts will bring up a lot of info about how to dial in the shocks and stuff.
