Thanks. It looked bad until I changed the bottle cages from black to white. My eyes needed something else to focus on besides the yellow fenders.

I just brought my bike inside and turned off the light. I took a few pictures of it with the flash on.

Everything got from Ebay and Amazon (except the handlebar is taken from an old bike lying on the sidewalk), All components are low-mid level. In order to save money, I didn't match the colors, so it looks weird.

Very nice! :thumb: And non-matching colors is even better. Gives it a different look. That's one of the things that makes me stop when I see a bike like that.

Cool! I commute as often as I can. I'm not far at all, 6.5 miles and takes me 8 mins longer than it does when I drive my car. I was going to go with a rack and panniers, but decided to get a backpack and found this one from gearouthere.com I just need the fenders now.

Those barends look perfect on your bike.

Steely Dan 08-22-11 12:46 PM

^ yeah, not only do the ergon GC3 grips and bar ends look good on the bike, they make it immeasurably more comfortable for me to ride compared to the cheap, chintzy grips that came with the bike.

AlphaDogg 08-22-11 01:12 PM

^ Nice 666th post ;)

That bike is beautiful, along with your photos. Orange with grey are a perfect match.

The drivers will have pretty good visibility of your bike.

Even in daylight, the reflective tape pops out!

Other than the usual white garage door,the orange is nice in contrast.

I just missed the opportunity to buy one from CL. It was 2009 Bad Boy disc ..same as yours.
Small size for my wife. I was not desperate since my wife has very decent hybrid and 3 other bikes..but anyway - girsl was asking 300, I was ready to give 280... and no more.
I know..I'm cheap. Now I have many regrets.. It is not like I needed ..but for 300 who does not. :)
Great bike.

AlphaDogg 08-26-11 07:31 AM

^^Ahhh the inspiration of my reflective wheels. :D

Great bike.

300 bucks I'd say was pretty good for 2009. Used USA framed BB's are going for much more that that here. In fact last year I was told by one of the Cannondale dealers (here in Kyoto) that the used USA framed BB's sell for more than the new 2010 model.

edit, the current price for a BadBoy disc is 79,000 yen. I think mine was just over 130,000 yen new. When the made in the USA sticker disappeared, the price dropped a huge amount BUT sales for the Taiwan Cannondales have skyrocketed here.

My Trek 8.3 DS. I've flipped the stem and swapped out the suspension fork for a rigid one. Looking at these pictures makes me realize my seat's not level. I'll have to fix that. Sorry for the picture posts in multiple threads, there's a few threads that apply to my bike.

AlphaDogg 08-26-11 04:57 PM

Just got my rack and panniers. Yes I know this isn't the commuting forum :p.

Do you get the impression that most of the hybrid riders have never used their vehicles for transportation? It does seem that way sometimes, but you can commute and still post in Hybrids. :) I do.
