Hi!

I haven't posted my good old 'Dale yet, so here it is : a light and very lively bike that really looks cool... :D

Image

I ordered the original bike directly from Cannondale US, as it was not available in Europe then.
Size M / 17, with the original P-Bone forks.
PlanetX stem & bars.
The brakes are either vintage DiaCompe or Tektro Veeeez.

Image

One of my favourite brands...

Image

Libor Karas rode that very frame, hence the limited edition... 8)

Image

I nearly immediately SSed it (44*19 at the moment : a rather versatile bracket - 42*18 doesn't require a chain tensioner, but my 42 ring is has passed away...).

Image

I either ride it with vintage IRC Pirannah Pros...
Image

Or with slick tires for that cool cruiser style (and they have those reflctive stripes that make you look like a real star!!!).
Image

As the sun is still shining, I think I'll go for a ride along the river...
Image

Cheers,

Rémy
;)

Actually I did hesitate between a very low-profile black and that outrageously flashy yellow...

The bike has hed a couple of variations since I got it, including a road configuration for a triathlon, in the good ol' days!

Cheers,

Rémy

Nice. Always like a good Beast!

Those >'97 P-bones are cool. I just put one from a Beast on my wife's M500.

Really nice. P Bone forks are so good, criminally underrated when all anyone wants it seems is project 2s. I have some on my kili and love them.

Yellow is a great colour.
