this is my absolute favorite bike ever. hardly weighs a thing, fast as balls, fat ass tubing, what's not to love. i have ridden a lot of bikes, and i can safely say, this is the very best. still a lot of plans to improve this thing, but all in due time. i plan on keeping this ride for eternity.

**UPDATE** as of 4/15/13, this bicycle is no more. it was totaled in an accident in which i was struck by a car. i, myself, will heal in time. the bicycle, thought to look unharmed by the cops on the scene, is in fact between .5 an 1 inch off in frame alignment. so much for keeping it forever. i guess this prompts me to build my capo and update that bike.

What was the reasoning

What was the reasoning behind not having the track end level with the bottom of the chainstay?


that is how it had to be done to keep the original geometry. the rear wheel is in the same place vertically in proportion to the rest of the frame. had it been any different, the wheel would have had clearance issues with the brake bridge.



Love this!

Very cool!

fork looks like it,s bent

fork looks like it,s bent dude...

look again

not sure where you got that. i know my bikes, i ride this particular one every day. the fork is as straight as the day it was purchased, never been wrecked. old cannondales had tight geometry which left little space between the front(and rear) tire and frame. but thanks for trying to point that out.

Sweet dropouts :V
