My 2007 Cannondale Bad Boy disc:
I got my Bad Boy after I had a head on accident with a motorbike whilst riding my Giant CFR1.
For the price of a replacement carbon frame I was able to take ownership of a complete hybrid, (after negotiating with insurance) for half the price.
Now to the shock of many here, I bought the bike unseen and for looks only.
My friend had a matte black Cannondale Capo Optimo which I absolutely loved, so I went to a shop and asked what other Cannondale came with the same looks.
The shop assistant search the web, and I loved the look of the Bad Boy, and asked him to order one for me.
When it finally arrived I was amazed at the quality components it had.
I was instantly happy with the size and geometry and rode it home.
Over the past 8 years it's had many changes with only two major disappointments. The Avid bb5 calipers it came with both failed the same way.
The calipers have a small weak spring which snapped in both instances.
The OEM seatpost snapped but thankfully no crash due to it.
I only replaced parts as they wore out, except in later years when I wanted to bling it up a bit.
Points of interest which are still original are the Sunrim rims, Shimano hubs, Shimano cranks, frame and fork, headset, sram front shifter and sram rear derailleur, and bottom bracket. The Sram Front shifter and derailleur are in working condition, but I decided to go 1 x 9.
I replaced the following as bling only because of fading... handlebars, stem, seatpost clamp and saddle.
I replaced the following for performance only... chainring, hydraulic brakes and rear cassette.
Overall this bike is one I have no intention of ever replacing. It has evolved over the years into my perfect go to bike.
