Not really a section to put this, it ain't a MTB, road bike or BMX!

Thought I'd share it anyways as its a hoot to ride!

2009 cannondale hooligan 1
8 speed alfine hub
disc brakes
delta V frame
20" bmx wheels

Changes are:

New foam bontrager grips
Comfy specialized saddle
Salsa quick release seat clamp
On-one Mary bars

Everyone I have spoke to that tried one, loved them, just most dealers never got many in.

I tried a few times to order one but was told there was none left. They are half the price abroad too, probaly the reason they wouldn't get bigger batches over here.

Never been on a 20" wheeled bike since I was about 16!

I must say, I'm 31, 6ft and the wrong side of 16st, but it's a bloody good laugh, and the fastest bike through town, I can go to the chippy and back in record time!

Gets some attention, people are not sure what it is, an adults BMX is best I can describe it!

It's comfortable to ride though, and the 8sp means it's good for speed and more usable :)

Mega strength and discs also mean my fat ass won't break it!
