Charlie should it matter where this bike was karma'd from? I have chipped in on this build and will try to help out more with it if I can. Yes I go on the other site where they dont/wont allow peeps to bash this site so why do you feel the need to bash theirs? John does a few bikes up and sells them for charity good on him. He could quite easily pocket the cash but he dosent. I have been karma' d a near enough complete bike from someone on their but didnt post it up on here cos I just knew some dick would have to use it as a point to start bashing the other site.

Also had a '92 'dale, need to rebuild it one day.

Does this have a 1 1/4" headset? Pepperoni fork would be a good upgrade if so.

One good thing about Cannondale is they used more or less the same frame on their entire range BiTD.

So Cool. I had one of these custom built up BITD, and I really want another.

If you ever sell it, can I have first dibs?

Lovely bike. Looks gorgeous in black & amber walls. Agree with John.. Pepperoni forks.. I think they would give it the classic look.

Love the extended chain stays on these.. My '95 M900 lacks that characteristic

Also think this Karma and your attitude towards it is great.

Sweet. Build on. Watching this with interest
