Very clean build. I really like it.

What's the graphic on the downtube? Can you post a close up?

Gil certainly done a great job there. Thanks for posting - I'm no expert on 'dales!

Looks good, black and gold, nice, will have a bit more gold and a splattering of black to show off soon myself! I bet it is harder to get tyres off those rims than on, you nearly didn't get them as I felt like throwing them over the fence :lol:

I think this is one of the better buil;ds I've seen.

Lovely.

It seems strange that there isn't more Cannodale love about for those older ones. They always seemed so special at the time. Maybe not Klein special, but definately a bit rarer and more sought after than our Marins and Spesh's at the time.

Very nice build.

:D
