Cannondale Criterium as Commmuter
Hey all, I have a Cannondale 3.0 Criterium RS2000 from 1989 and I'm having a hell of a time trying to outfit it for commuting. I don't really have any other choice for bike right now so I'm hoping to gain wisdom from the community.
If you have Fenders, what sort do you have? I have Planet Bike's Hardcore fenders which I purchased several years ago for my last commuter- they've never been used because I purchased them in anticipation for the rainy season only to have my old commuter's frame snap... and they do not fit. For a few months I've thought, "I'm only one part away" from being able to mount them. Tonight I found out that the back brake mount doesn't fit the Sheldon Fender Nut
... and it being an Aluminum frame I don't want to drill it out only to crack the frame or create some other ill.
For nearly a decade I've been riding bikes from 1979 and older, so this bike has been a rough adjustment. The interchangeability of parts changed drastically in ten years!
