Indeed.

I am not expecting it to compare in quality to my RTS, but I am certain it wont be unbearably bad.

As for the Pro-Flex......well, yes, I did intend to keep it, but there is now something else I want so house rules are 1 has to go (and TBH, I wouldnt be able to fit anymore into Pickle HQ :shock: ).

I'm the same- always say something is a keeper but then another wee gem/bargain pops up :roll: - have seen your garage and know what you mean, mind you could put some beams in and hang from the roof to :twisted:

Thanks.

I was toying with getting rid of the bar ends, as this is the only bike I have with them........will decide after the first ride :wink:

Thanks guys, its nice to know its not just me who lusted after one of these bikes! 8)

Didnt manage to get out on this one over the weekend, as I think a new chain is required. Had a little spin up the road and the gears were slipping, so need to get this sorted before off-roading with it.

Looks like it will be next weekend before I can pass comment on the ride quality :roll:

to all entusiasts, I love the 9000 series, i will have a 9500 one day, just do'nt know when, but for now, I have a Cannondale Super V 1000 with some updates like a (first black, dont remember the year, think is '95)XTR Rear Derrailer, XTR V brakes, and a Black LX Crank with avid brake levers, 95' XT rapid Fires, and a handlebar scott 145 grams, who liked?

You just bumped a 3yr old thread with an almost irrelevant reply.

Why dont you start your own thread about the cannondale?
