LX chainset,
XT V Brakes (recent ebay score!)
XT BB,

USE seatpost ( about to be cut down,
Hope front hub on mavic x517 swiss db spokes,
LX Rear hub on mavic 521 with black swiss db spokes,
Onza porc 2 tyres (kevlar).

And the rest of the buid will follow

Always had a soft spot for these 8)
Agree with P20 about the lack of 'em on here :(
If your going DH with it, triples would suit it more IMO. Or, try and get some original Headshocks????

That the early one, the 80 on the swingarm is the travel, the later ones were 100. I'd be inclined to put a headshok back on it. Think scant had one for sale :wink:

Triples would rip the front end off this.
I saw far to many in 2 pieces back in the day when triples first came out.
Thats why cannondale produced a DH version with a top tube and extra welding on the front.

The rst forks I have got in there work much better than any headshock fork ive tried.

Might just bite the bullet and buy a lefty though.

I think this one is a 99.

I have dug about and the black was an option on 98 and 99.

The 80 is indeed the amount of travel on the rear and the 85 up front will suit just fine :)

Yea, lefty could work, but I just wouldn't be able to fully trust one myself (although I'm sure there fully tested!). Still, be nice to keep it all Cannondale specific products. Get some CODA cranks on there also; push the boat out........ 8)
That DH rig looks horrible, the top tube brace looks such an afterthought :shock: Spoils a beautiful and original design.
