Ten years obsessing, searching, and some unwise financial moves finally got me these two bikes in my size. I got the GT on a lark for a good price when I started working at a shop 9 years ago and finally "restored" it having assembled a nice drivetrain. The Cannondale was a long, painful search. I missed the mark by a year or two before prices went insane ~2009, then it was impossible to find a 66 at any cost. Almost ordered a Colossi or Pelizzoli but this was a purely emotional decision. I wanted the Cannondale.
Here they are built, waiting for bartape and plugs. Bad cellphone pics, I know. The GT is going into a local bike art show so I should have some great photos to share once I hook up with the curator/photographer.
