I race on a Caad7 frame, but need to save some bucks. I'm considering getting a used Caad3 or worse when my original frame finally craps out. That got me thinking, how low could I go?
What's the worst bike you've ridden in a mass start race? I'm talking within the last 5 years, not back in 1982. Anybody on 36 spokes? Downtube shifters? Headtube shifters? That new Wal-Mart road bike? The Wal-Mart mountain bike??
Myself, I've only raced the Cannondale, but I did see a guy do a crit on a single speed conversion. He got dropped so fast, it was ridiculous.
