I got back from the alps today so thought it's about time I put up a thread for my alps bike - Cannondale Gemini in 2006 team colours:

Had this one since 2007, coped very well with Morzine that year and Chamonix over the last week. Weighs a fair but but a push (sometimes literally) it even goes uphill.

Rough spec: 2006 Gemini frame, largely stock but upgrades include:
Rock Shox Domain forks, Formula Mega brakes, Sunline V One bars and stem.

Thanks, I'd love a Lefty but not on this bike. Current travel on the front is 160mm, but I think 180mm would be an even better fit. As far as I know they didn't make a Lefty long enough? Maybe I'll just have to get another 'dale...
