My SS, built out of this and that. Jamis steel frame, Manipoo Minute 1 fork, Hayes Nine and So1e brakes. Tensioner not required with the gears I used which was nice.
I really enjoy riding it, and it seems suprisingly light. Gears, shifters, derailleurs and cables must all add up to a fair whack.

Just picked this up (slipped it past the CFO !) The new whare backs on to Bottle Puddle so thought and upgrade from the super ghetto ss was in order. Rigid, running 33:14and the LBS did me a pretty good deal too. Well happy. It'll be getting dirty in about 2hrs. And thanks to Hedley for a loaner of his, convinced me easy :blush:

Those QR's will match nicely with the colour of iodine, which might help your knee when it slams into your stem when that slack chain slips under load

Sadly Cannondale is ditching them for 2014 :(
Still have 2013 stock but its ex USA

I wonder what they will replace it with if you need a warrenty.

I've seen the private pictures and LOVE it.
I also love how our both our avatars show the same guy wearing a life jacket.

Where are the private pictures? I feel so left out :(

Thinking bout heading up your boys' way sometime this winter. Reckon y'all could skive off for a 1 or 2-day SS ride? Waikaremoana stylee?

Winter is a strong word.
Give us some approximate dates and we can work it from there.
