There's something about the combination of 'raw' carbon and shiny metal that really floats my boat.

Love it.

Well took the plunge yesterday and bought this

Image

Not a Raven but still a Cannondale.

Problem is the seller sold the Lefty off it so i'm forkless & wheeless put an ad in the wanted section, so fingers crossed.

Frame & rear have both recently been powder coated not 100% my taste finish wise.

How did you get your triangle & fork so bling ?

Were they re chromed or just sand blasted/polished ?

Any help/advice appreciated

Cheers
:wink:

Stunning looking bike but that saddle just looks so painful (even if it it does go well with the build).

What about one of these though?
