    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.
    Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

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

    Very nice! 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.

    ^ 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.

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

    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.

    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.
