I have Posted this on other threads but it's never had it's own.

This bike was in pretty good shape when I bought it.
I did a complete tear down and rebuild/tuneup along with a lot of polish.

That is art you can ride 8) 8) 8) I really like your bikes. Your attention to detail is amazing.

My favourite Cannondale made (except for an R900 in polished with Spinergys) - that is some elbow grease to get it looking like that. I sold a ton of these BITD as well but see them so rarely for sale....

Great build, these were so space-age for rigid bikes BITD.

Do you get flats or injuries from riding around cactuses?

:oops: Thank you.

I did spend some time polishing. Was very tarnished when I bought it.

I have been injured by falling into a cactus called a jumping cholla while clipped in on a climb. Very unpleasant experience. They attatch themselves as balls of thorns hence the name. Some people carry hair comb's to remove these so you don't have to touch them to get them out.

You have to run liners in your tyres out here or you will have a flat within the first mile.
