I love this bike; it was cheap to buy and build, it's as light as or lighter than modern entry-level 105 road bikes, and is a ton of fun.

**Rear derailleur hanger broke : ( Now a single-speed until I swap the parts to a new frame in the Spring.

WHAT? STOLEN?

Are you serious? That really stinks.. At least you have the serial number. Keep the broken off derailleur hanger in case you also need that piece of evidence.

Nice bike! I have a question: did you widen the space between the drop-outs on your rear triangle to accept the width of the newer hub and 9 speed cluster?

The bike came with a 9 sp

The bike came with a 9 sp cassette, so I just assumed the rear triangle was spaced. However, while installing the Neuvation wheelset with a new 9 sp cassette, I found that the rear triangle hadn't been spaced. All that's required is to pull the seatstays out a little during installation so the wheel can slip into the dropouts, then tighten the wheel.

How is the handling of the Cannondale Crit compared to other raodbikes you've ridden? There's one on sale in my city and I'm wondering if I should pick it up for a first road-bike project...

Also that stem is quite boss.

It's definitely a lot

It's definitely a lot twitchier of a ride, but not in the scary way. It's like a track bike; steep angles, compact, agile and it has toe overlap. Surprisingly I haven't found it to be too uncomfortable. I did 110 miles on it last Sat/Sun and only had a sore but from the saddle, it wasn't too jarring or hard on my back.

Thanks!

damn that sounds really

damn that sounds really nice. might have to consider tryin a crit frame out, well after I finish my current build(getting myself in trouble :D)

Like the bike(the blue tape really pops)! Down-tube shifters are pretty fun, part of the reason I got my Raleigh

Thanks! Yeah they're quite

Thanks!

Yeah they're quite fun, great for a little urban carving too!

Nothing quite like the handling of a C'dale Crit frame

The handling is quick and sure, whether diving into a tight washboard downhill corner or on an open flat, this bike is responsive, reliable and sure. Until yesterday, I only had downtube shifters on my roadbikes.

Hell yeah dude! In my last

Hell yeah dude!

In my last crit I was reeling in guys like nobody's business in the corners on this bike.
