Shimano Deore hub, Sun DS2 or DS2-XC, 32 hole, Shimano M475 hub, 700C by 28 mm Continental or 26" by 2.2" Maxxis

Shimano FC-M470 Hollowtech, Shimano Octalink BB-ES30

Shimano SPD PD-M505

Shimano Deore front, SRAM X-7 rear

Avid BB7 disc brakes (replaced the BB5s)

26/36/48 front, SRAM PG-950 11-34 rear

Added fenders (SKS P35 or P65), Scottoiler; replaced handlebar, pedals, and disc brakes (the pictures show the BB5s, but it has BB7s now). Otherwise the way it came. This is a fast ride on the 700C wheels solo, and great to pull a trailer. I got this for my commuting needs. I wanted a bike that I could ride in the winter as well (fat tires). The Bad Boy looked like the perfect strange bike for this! Mountain-bike frame with 700C skinny wheels in the summer, and due to the disc brakes they can be swapped for fat 26" mountain bike wheels in the winter.

Summer pics, too! This thing

Summer pics, too! This thing is a beautiful, beautiful monster.

summer pic

There is a summer pic in the thumbnails, but is just displays as a black line. I can't get it to show for some weird reason.

And I thought mine had

And I thought mine had already too many cables and stuff ^_^

Good tip about the fenders, didn't know which to get. Did you have to make a hole for the headshok valve in the front fender?

Actually you can mount a rack, axiom makes an aluminium one that fits this frame nicely.

valve hole

Yes, I drilled a hole in the fender to get enough clearance for the 700C wheel. I covered the hole with vinyl tape to keep dirt off the valve, works pretty well.

Thanks for the tip about the rack, I'll check that out!

Looks like something a hobo

Looks like something a hobo would sell his soul for.

Pretty cool lookin'.


that bike is a tank!!! and it looks like you have a whole film production set on that bike.


Holy Crap,
You need some more junk on this bike.
Like, um, a lock. Now where does that go?
How long is your commute?
I ride all winter on slicks. There is always dry road somewhere. However I do take the subway when it gets too sloppy.

there's plenty of stuff missing on this bike

1)NOT a lock (how will the thief pick it up??)
3)Tire chains
5)Kickstand (wtf why don't you already have one??)
6)More Waterbottle cages (with that few you will undoubtedly get dehydrated on a 1.6 mile ride)
7)Assorted wires (to entangle the brake cables etc.)
8)I was going to suggest an air horn, but you already have one, gj
9)child mount(they stay on better when directly attached to the frame and reduece weight/improve handling over trailers)


I rarely need a lock since I park my bike in my office! I wish I could mount a rack on this bike, but other than that I don't know of any good lock holder that does not weigh more than the lock. If I need the lock it is in the bike trailer or in my back pack!

My commute is short, only 1.6 miles. I rode my bike through the snow last week, the side streets were completely covered, and the fat tires worked very well with a low pressure.


Hey I grew up south of Grand Ledge. I used to work at Denny's Schwinn. And raced on the trails over by Hell, MI.


Hi interestor!

I bought my other Cannondale at Denny's on Grand River in East Lansing in 1994! If you worked there at that time, you might remember the crazy German that wanted a half-step setup.


damn, that's a lot of cables!


Two brakes, two shifters, computer, light, air horn. Just two more than on a "normal" bike. A lot more than on a fixed gear, though!


looks like more...
either way, you bike is definitely bad-ass.
