I had a Cannondale SM800 which was quite cool at the time. But one day it just beat the hell out of me on a rocky downhill and decided its fate.
My next day off was spent in Leisure Lakes bike shop signing up for Pace forks, A-head stem, Pace hubs and a Cook brothers 'dog bone' crankset. (I had to buy all of them at once to qualify for their finance deal).
All those parts except the SM800 are still in regular use.
Did I sure get my money's worth!!
Actually, the Cannondale was sold to a friend of a friend and is still in use and its XT group is on my cousins Kona Cindercone, and still in use.
