I'd say 99% stock and all the better for that 1% missing.

:)

I also might replace the Ritchey levers for XT levers. I really don't like the feel of the Ritcheys.

hi
is the handlebar the wrong way around? i always thought bar should be orientated so you read it looking at the bike from the front not from the cockpit. :oops:

Good point. I looked at my other bikes with Hyperlites and the orientation is the way you suggested. However, I don't think it matters. Or does it. Maybe I should do a poll?

Lovely bike it looks great in those colours
Dreadful clearance between the rear tyre and the yolk but not a problem where you live I don't suppose....it's always sunny and the singletrack is dusty :lol:

So I snapped a few pics this morning of the bars and discovered that they are correct because there isn't any graphics on the underside of the bars. Meaning, you could flip them, but you would just have silver bars. Probably not what Cannondale had in mind.

I added Ritchey cranks and put the the Ritchey brake levers back on, so I updated the pictures.

I missed this thread. :shock:
Lovely bike and a remarkable effort to put all the correct parts together. I´m jealous.
If you ever decide to sell it, please let me know. :wink:
