Trying out a new scanner at work, first thing I did was to scan a couple of photos of my old cannondale :) . I Bought this bike with the insurance payout from a scott I had stolen, it was in the end of year sale and blatantly too big for me but I loved the look of it. Rode pretty good although I never really got on with the headshock, sadly it also ended up getting stolen.
Apologies for the blurry pics, the originals are just as bad.

Delta V has front suspension (or full suspension). Killer V is ha hardtail with suspension compatible geometry and "Delta V-like" toptube. the first Killer Vs (1994-1995) had normal headtube whereas the later ones had Headshok compatible headtube with adapters to fit 1 1/8" headset.

At least the first Killer Vs had huge downtubes, larger than 3.0 series.

Hope this helps.

Allway nice to look at a Delta V :D

I've owned a Killer V for years (with superstiff P-bone forks wich I still have). I sold it years ago to buy a roadracer stupid as I was. It rode great but a bit slow steering with a Rock Shox long travel forks.
