I was going to wait until I'd got more bits on it, but as it's at a rideable ish stage I thought I'd put these 2 up.

Got some red HS33's to go on and hopefully some stars and stripes gripshift soon, plus 2 ringle hubs to build onto much better wheels. Still loads more bits I want but I need to stop spending so much ££.

Been out twice now, definitely need some more rise at the front so I'll try move the spacers below the stem and see. Otherwise I'm pleased with it so far.

I love the shine!

That must take some cleaning!

Also nice find on the splash pattern ringle stem.

Good job 8) pity about the rise though the front end looks pretty sorted, reckon a black seat post would be nice.

Polished Cannondales are great. Where have they all gone?
