Cast your minds back to 2007 - Shrek 3, Transformers and Spider-Man 3 are in theatres, Britney Spears shaved her head, and I Can Haz Cheezburger was setting the internet alight. OK, so it wasn’t a great cultural year but it was the year that Cannondale released this gem.
The frame is made from co-moulded aluminium at the back and carbon at the front and is a unique handmade frame I’ve never seen around anywhere else.
Designed in the days before ‘aero’ was much of a consideration outside of time-trailing, the oversize tubing is designed to offer comfort and ‘shock dissipation’. I’ve been basically using the bike as an endurance bike for years and it offers a great ride-feel for long distances.
About a year ago I gave the bike an overhaul, replacing the bottom bracket and group set and replacing the old magic wheels with a carbon set from Prime, Wiggle’s own brand.
As far as I can see, this is the only significant damage on the frame.
I changed the crank for a compact one too.
Apologies for the dirty cassette but I was trying to get the photos done before it rained again. I’ll clean it up at the weekend.
I’m currently running size 25 tyres on here and they’ve never given me any problems but if you’d prefer a smaller size, I’ll throw in some lightly-used 23 Mavics.
I’ll throw in another Cannondale bottle cage too.
No internal cabling but the bike is simple to work on. I’ll take the pedals off before I sell it but I can slap some flat pedals on if you want to ride it home.
I don’t have a car but I can ride it out to most places in Western Tokyo or I can put it in a bike bag and deliver it if necessary. If anyone needs any more information such as tube lengths or weight (I only have bathroom scales available, though) please let me know
