I started building the bike with pre-1997 parts from my 1995 Cannondale F400 but a few newer parts slipped in there so its now a mix and match.

Nothing of the original bike excists, everything as been upgraded and what parts I kept put onto my wife's bike. (Pictures to follow when finished)

Anyway its a work in progress as I needed something to ride while on holiday over winter in Spain, mostly gravel tracks.

I like the finished look with the square tubed frame and colour but its a little heavy and I would ideally like a different frame at a later date, I want something special though......... Anyway comments welcome and any idea's...........
