    Cannondale Eye Candy

    So I've made some changes to the bike since I last posted pics, and a friend of mine took some new photos with his DSLR so I thought it was time to update.

    (stock photo)

    2005 CAAD7 R700 Frame
    Full Dura Ace 7800

    Pretty drastic weight drop there. My (sold) CAAD8 was 18.5lbs.

    Funny how in the 3rd picture the frame looks black, just like the bars, but it looks gray in all the others.

    yea, unfortunately it was the end of an overcast day when the pictures were taken. The diffuse lighting gave some nice soft shadows though, in some of the other pics where the flash wasn't used.

    If I could reach into the monitor, take it, and take off from work right now, I really really would.

    Shooting in raw, and custom color balancing post production is a good thing.
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    You don't ride with that do you!? I'd be afraid of how much drag it would produce

    Purdy bike but the drop from the seat to the lower drops looks very long to me.
