Not exactly C&V at 15 years old, but I am thrilled with how my winter project turned out, a 1996 SR500 Cannondale. I won the frameset and then a NIB vintage '96 Shimano 105 full 8 speed groupset back in early January.
I have been intrigued in the Headshok system since 2003 when I bought the MTB version. I have wanted to try the road version for several years now, but I couldn't find one in my size.
Took it out on Saturday for a flat and smooth road shakedown ride. Mechanically it was perfect. Only a small adjustment to the saddle height.
Tonight, I put it through the paces on the frost heaved roads. Climbs, descents, sprints, grinds, anything I could toss its way. It eats the rough frost heaves* for its dinner!
*Frost heaves are northern New England's answer to winter speed bumps.
