Though most of the parts have been replaced due to wear and tear, it still rides like a dream. Will be changing the rear deraileur and shifters to M952, probably a nice pair of wheels to top it off. Will start sourcing for Ringle stuffs soon. :lol:

Anyway, I'll let the photos do the talking and hope you guys enjoy them. :wink:

It looks good... the beast of the east was always one of my favorite bikes.

Nice and tidy. Beasts are great frames, and in my eyes Cannondale's finest hour. 8)

That's a nice 'dale 8)

Looking forward to see it with the planned Ringlé stuff on it to give it an even more vintage look..

one question though: How did you manage to get the V's working with the Kooka canti levers ?

Thank you for the compliments.

The M952s worked once I fixed the levers on. There wasn't any major problems faced. Just probably one which is the brake modulation which needs to be extremely careful of. Sometimes, they bite in too hard. 8)
