    I own about $17 of cannondale products, it's a nice seatbag. Perhaps one day I will have a six13 or Synapse to hang it on..

    The color matched trainer was by accident. I actually never thought about it until you mentioned it. The tires are color matched though. You can see the blue on the front tire. I changed out the rear for the trainer. Silver tape, silver DA cables simply for color matching. I'm looking for new cages that will match the bike that are not aluminum (I hate the markings Al cages but on bottles.) Maybe Silver Elite Pase Carbons?, or Tacx Tao Silver Carbons?

    The silver aluminum Tacx Taos will serve you fine, unless you really want to spend money on the carbon ones.

    Train smarter; ride harder; get faster; buy lighter (but not neccessarily in that order)

    To go with the green Cannondale I posted eariler, I have one pair of Cannondale shorts, one pair of Cannondale gloves, and a Cannondale ear warmer.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Pic is outdated; stem has been swapped to a Ritchey WCS and lowered all the way and am waiting for my body to get used to it before cutting the steerer.
    Your body won't get used to it just by lowering it - you'll also probably have to do some stretches to stop yourself ruining your biomechanical efficiency on the bike.

    I now have Ultegra SPD-SLs.
    The crank is Sampson Stratics that I took from my 1994 R500.
    The tires have gold stripes color-matched to the frame.
    The saddle is also color-matched (I hated it at first but now I think it goes together well)

    I have removed the excess cable housing for the rear brake and mounted the computer to the stem.

    I installed bullhorns and Syntace C2s with aero levers and bar-end shifters for a tri, but did not take any pics.

    Here's my baby, my first real road bike. Unfortunately, she's taken a back seat to my Bianchis and Colnago, but she still gets to come out and play on days when her triple might be appreciated (6-Gap Century, for example...)

    Well that's a bit extreme but yeah I look at my C'dale as a tool and my LOOK as art. Allthough I like the look of my C'dale it doesn't pull at my soul the way the LOOK does. But that's why I chose the CAAD8 as opposed to several other framesets I could have been racing on next season. If I tank it an the C'dale is totaled it won't break my heart.

    Not sure why you bought a bike you think is so ugly, kind of like buying a house you hate the color of, or a mini van, when you wanted an SUV. No offense, just seems odd.

    I think the nude Six/13 is a very appealing bike, classic American looks.

    I just pieced this together from a used frame, which I got for a steal, and parts from my Motobecane. Total cost $1765, weight 15.8. Would have gone with the black if I hadnt got such a steal on this frame. Synapse carbon 2 frame.

    15.8? What components did you use to get to that weight? Was that with cages/computer/pedals?

    I could not find the weight for cables, but I think it is safe to assume that they weigh less than .9 lbs? So the 15.8 was with pedals, cages, and the computer wiring, but I didnt have the computer on the bike. I know that the Motobecane SL weighed in at right on 16lbs, and the Synapse frame and fork were nearly .5lb lighter. So quite honestly I am trying to figure out where i grew .3 lbs. Also I used the heaviesst FSA Carbon crankset/bb weiight I could find, to be fair. They dont make the one i have on anymore and I couldnt find an exact weight.. although I think it is lighter than the 800+ grams I assigned it. All this and Im not even a weight weenie.. well maybe I am.

    Wouldn't be easier to just weigh the bike?

    Don't forget the weight of any dust that may have settled on it.


    The paint scheme looks similar to the new Synapse.

    I guess I didnt ID it did I It is a Synapse.. guy had it for 1 month, got OCP and pulled the parts off to put on a Six13. I got it for a song, frame/fork only. Had to buy a 45 dollar adapter to change the BB from SI to ISIS, and had to pull a seat post from a Mt Bike in the garage, and had to buy a new Front derailer clamp. OBTW I did weigh it,, it was 15.8lbs.. but I knew that my scales calibration would be questioned, so I broke it down. Military training I think,,,try to kill the opposition with facts right up front

    i wont argue with your weight. i had my LBS weigh my synapse carbon 2 (pictured earlier) and it came in at 17 lbs 6 oz. this included both bottle cages (ti), hard wired cateye mity 8, and speedplay stainless steel pedals. this weight also included a FSA k-wing handle bar and michelin pro2 race (not lite) tires. everything else is whatever comes on a carbon 2.
