    Fork is Sakae. Wish it was the OG fork, but watever.

    The frame fits me. Its a 58.
    Took it for a ride after we built it up, and it was fine. Felt a lil more compact than my Gitane, but it fit me.
    Cant wait to ride tmrw.

    i always thought that the OG forks on the Cannondales looked sorta weird, and you always see those bikes without the original, weird.

    IMO that fork looks a lot better than the original. The original is a standard steel fork that gets totally dwarfed over by the oversized tubing. The fork you got on there looks beefy and matches the wheelset nicely.

    Anyways, I know we all love the look of drop stems, but that bike would seriously fit you a lot better if you installed a regular Nitto Pearl or Technomic... the way it is now, it looks like it'd be pretty damn hard to ride over 10 miles on it without dying of discomfort.

    Thanks for the constructive criticism everyone. I also have some orangeish riser bars, that I could put on if I dont like the feel.
    Only rode it for about 5 or so miles so far, its getting too windy.

    Yea, I got it from Bennett.
    He came over and helped me build it up, since I dont have all the tools.

    How tall are you Hiwaga?


    I like your attitude, btw. No one here wants you to feel bad, but at the same time no words will be as painful as riding a bike that doesn't fit for too long. Eventually, you would want to think about trading for another CAAD in your size. They aren't that scarce. Especially in the Bay.

    No prob.

    Im 6'2.
    I usually ride a 59, but recently been feeling too stretched out it. Kinda weird.
    My Gitane fit PERFECTLY all around, but Ive been wanting a Cannondale Track for a while.
    I didnt get a complete feel of the fit of the bike, because I was getting knocked around too much by the wind. But what I was able to feel, it felt pretty good. Maybe a stem with less of a drop would feel a tad bit better, but I didnt have any problems yet.
    I'll report back tmrw on how it feels commuting (about 10 miles total, depending if I cruise around for a while or not.)
    Also, I wouldnt wanna trade away or sell this frame. I got it from my friend, and I know its one of his personal favorites. He knew I loved the frame and wanted it, so he sold it to me.
    After looking at the pics and my bike, I think my seat is way forward.

    I'd try a pearl and some bullhorns. They look awesome on that frame and extend the reach on the frame.

    long legs short torso? that would explain the feeling stretched out and miles of seatpost. I'll second that a shorter stem with less drop would help.

    I ride on top of the drops.

    I'll update tmrw with one more pic, showing the altering of the saddle position and seat post height.

    I wish I would have known. Before the crash I was tossing around the idea of letting it go for super cheap to someone else that would really enjoy it like I did. I caught an amazing deal and kinda wanted to pass it around... ah well, now i rests in the bike corner of my room.

    Yeah, I noticed that too and its nice not to have someone become immediately defensive. Hiwaga, from the stem height and the yard of post showing (I kid, I know it could be the angle) its clear the bars are a significant drop. If you set them up where you have control in the drops, you're comfortable, and you arent cutting off your wind I can assure you riding at the tops will be even more of a joy.

    yea the fork really does fit well with it. I know it would completely throw off the color tone of the bike, but if you find that it's not comfy in the long run on a 90* stem, then maybe you could go for a 105* that salsa makes. Of course it would completely reak havoc on the beauty of that build but it would at least be more comfy and that's all that matters in the end
