I've been searching for this particular frameset for about two years. And few weeks back I've finally found one in good shape in England, and bought it immediately. It's largest version of the frame, purpleen paint and it have even Risse Astro-5 damper! Best buy ever! And yesterday it came to me by TNT, and I threw some components right onto it. It is provisory setup. I can't wait to ride it.

In near future I'll add some more photos and comments about the build.

I'm in need of XTR M960 crankset, front and rear mech. So if anyone have one of those, please let me know.

Okay, so Schwalbe City Jet with amber wall. I tought I was ordering previous version of the tyre with much more interesting gouging, which was wider too, but anyway – here is the result. Now I only need chain, and some provisory front mech, few hours of adjusting brakes, cables and everything, and I'm ready to go :)

Been spending too much time on the bike and not in the yard.

Not a fan on Cannondales but DAMN that purple looks sweet!!!

I am more bike collector than a gardener, so sorry for the weed everywhere. I'd rather put concrete everywhere :D
And thank you for the possitive comments on the bike :)

It's complete! Well... was :) Until I shake off one bolt from rear caliper. I probably forgot to tighten it, and after about 15 km it was gone. So I rode rest of the way home with only front brake.

But here are some pictures of that ChromaLusion Purpleen fade paint ;)
