"I'd tend to disagree, 98 is 10 years old. thus retro surely? Sure some of those era cannondales look before their time but a 98 gt or kona wouldn't have been moved"

Also, nice to see something constructive from Ameybrook to add. The usual VRC vibe of going over the 'telling it how it is' mark.

Nothing personal against you, I don't know you, nor do I want to derail a topic (too much).


There is nothing retro about that bike. See -> disc brakes, triple clamp fork. If I were wrong, we'd be discussing this in the retro forum. No offense to its owner, if it makes him happy then it cant be that bad.

As for having nothing constructive to say, check out

and

Some would argue RB could use a little VRC. And vice-versa to be fair.

10 years old...

Not xc...

My eyes. If someone thinks a 99 Cannondale with risers, triple clamps and discs is retro they should check their bad selves.
