    You'd be fne - you just may have to do something with p-clips to get the rack mounted and horizontal.

    That is a Zinn. Zinn designed it that way for less frame flex as well as raw strength.

    I don't know why, but CL posters rarely (if ever) post frame sizes, I've inquired on a few, I think CL needs to have a FAQ for posters.

    A lot of the racks attach to the two stays coming down to the wheel, not the seat post, and that would have let them put it on level.

    Shaquelle O'Neal has a custom built Cannondale frame. Many pro basketball players are turning to cycling for a strenuous low impact workout.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Or they buy into the company. LeBron James was once an investor in Cannondale.

    James still is a minority shareholder. Dorel holds the majority share of BIKE stock and therefore controls the company.
