    The chain is there, it is a camouflaged single speed chain. Actually I didn’t put it on yet, was so giddy about my build and needed to take show off photos. I always wanted to paint my jeep o.d. green and figured this would be cheaper. Even had the cannondale letters and Air Force front emblem made. The bike was my first purchase in 99.

    Nice. So let's see it with the new fork and 700c wheels.

    My main ride is a '98 H300. About halfway through a long ride last Saturday.

    The Cannondales are starting to amount in the Hybrid Forum. One day we'll be able to give them TREKs and SPECIALIZEDs a nudge on the ranking.

    The wheels are actually 29er xt hubs (ebay) but are the same, smallest tire possible is 26mm. Now I don't have a rear brake but am only using on the bike paths. These are crappy cell phone pictures. The fork is an ebay chinese brand but very light, painted flat black.

    97 tj, front and rear Dana 44's, air lockers, the lift is mostly rubicon express 3.5, 1 inch body lift/motor lift for my custom flat belly, full roll cage through dash, custom front and rear bumpers but modified by me, warn winch, 35 inch tires, flat fenders, co2 air, LEDs front and back. I probably left something out. It is my other passion of course and it gets abused.

    Specialized Crosstrail at Lake Michigan / Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park

    Specialized Crosstrail at Lake Michigan / Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park in the background. /5 days trip/ with 82.7 max speed...yes, 82.7 mph. This area is full of huge and very long hills.
    Pretty stock on this pic, few upgrades in the last couple days, including rear pannier rack, Ritchey wcs ergo foam grips - awesome and really comfy, Shimano SPD clipless pedals, Shimano XT brakes and Cane Creek Thudbuster LT suspension seatpost - perfect upgrade for my "old" back ;-)

    Nice, man. My ZJ has, like I said a 2" Rubicon Express BB with RE twin tube shocks. My tires are approximately 29 inches, just a hair larger than stock. I plan on going to 31s with my BB, but that won't be until my Grabbers wear out. I just got them about 9 months ago. I did "abuse" mine, but after the lift, it let me know that I need new CA bushings. Until that's done, no more wheeling. I'll use the Gary Fisher for any of my "wheeling" excursions. I pretty much have 3 main passions: biking, wheeling, and car audio. The Jeep satisfies 2 of those for me and it sometimes charters my bike to it's destination. Anyway, back on topic...



    I'm pretty sure I posted that on here before but it's the only pic I could find of my bike by my Jeep. That was when I first got the bike and before I lifted my Jeep.

    I'm glad I can finally put a pic of my bike up: Fuji Absolute S, 23" (struggled to find a big enough bike in Korea). After some tweeking, it now rides so well. I'm loving my new hobby... which feels like my old hobby in my youth.



    This pic also shows in the top right corner the river bike path I'm riding most days... It's a really nice ride save for some big dragonflies at dusk. I've now come to understand why cyclist wear glasses.

    ^^^Love that Fuji! Good luck keeping those white tires white. BTW, are those Ergon GC2 grips? I've never seen any with white barends before.

    That's kinda the opposite of my bike... I don't think I've ever seen any bike that was all white.

    Gary Fisher Monona Drop Bar Conversion

    Here are some pics of my drop bar conversion. I managed to keep the shifters, resulting in a $50 conversion. I can tell the conversion makes the mike much more aero, and it is comfortable so far. I did the labor myself, which also cut down costs.

    i see you're at the C&O Canal. How is that on hybrids? I have a Trek 7.3 FX and haven't been down there yet. I've been on the NCR so i would assume it's similar to that if you've tried that up in the baltimore area.

    I actually like adding grey to this bike, so dirty tires will be sort of grey and not a problem to me. I actually very quickly decided I wasn't going to stress about keeping it too white (though I only ride in decent weather anyway) and instead just enjoy the riding experience. The grips are Ergon GC2 copies bought locally in Korea - glad I went that route. I took off the white grips but now with the white bar ends, I think it looks great.

    I almost got the all-black version... I just couldn't decide. But one day as I was driving to work everyone I saw had a black or blue bike. I thought, why not be different. Of course since then I see white bikes everywhere as well. Still, I'm loving my bike. I'm also not going to worry too much about keeping it spotless.

    Yeah, it's pretty, you know... white. Without the accessories, it was actually whiter than white.
