I like that...pant job is ace. I've got a real soft spot for 'Dales (I really need to get my old one sorted out). Big fan of the Lefty too, it's such a great idea...I've always liked be way that Cannondale have always done their own thing.

Only change that I would make is a black seat post.

The only bikes in their range that can pull off a normal fork are some of their bouncy bikes. The Prophet used to look best with a normal fork, but most of the others need a headshock or a lefty.

YES!

I was born on American independence day. So the flag is significant for me. Plus I'm a Volvo guy....

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

I am going weight weenie with this and have already sourced a lighter, tubeless wheelset for it.

She's at the shop as we speak having the fork rebuilt and the brakes bled/new pads.

After that, I will dissassemble her, and clean/lube EVERYTHING.

This might turn into a build thread....

Cheers!!
