More on my Flickr :arrow:

Spec:
Frame: '99 Cannondale Raven 1000 in Chromalusion Purpleen, Size Large
Fork: Cannondale Lefty Ti 100mm
Wheels: Cannondale front hub on Mavic 223, Shimano XT on Mavic 317 rear
Brakes: Hope Mono4, donated from the upgrades to my Yeti 575
Shifters: Shimano XTR M952, again from upgrades to 575
Rear Mech: Shimano XTR M952
Front Mech Shimano LX, unless I find an XTR 953 :twisted:
Cranks: Shimano XT 751 on Octalink bb

I used to have a medium BITD, but with a layback post and 130mm stem. This is a large, inline post and 100mm stem, it feels spot on size wise :D
I can't ride it at the moment though due to bike crash injuries :roll:

So hopefully coming to a retro meet sometime soon.... :lol:

Really nice, I like that! The paintjob is much better than boring black ones.
