Hello

I have completed my Cannondale recently this month, I owned this bike since from new since 1999 in the sale from my LBS, after putting new colour on frame and forks and some new parts, it have a mixture of retro and modern parts on the bike, I am pretty happy with it so far but not sure with the silver decals and wished I went for black ones, maybe changed the saddle and put on bigger tyres later on?

I have the same tire's lying around in my shed. Terrible cornering and they need a lot of pressure which has the negative result of no comfort. I would recommend you a 1.8 tire rear like Nobby Nic, this will provide you more stability and comfort. Up front you could use the 2.1 version.
