Cannondale Rebuild

Hi All, I finished my back-up touring bike yesterday. This was a very different bicycle project for me as this is also the beater bike, gravel grinder and loaner so the plan was to have a 100% reliable bike with the least expenditure possible. The only major expense was the inexpensive Sugino Impel 150X Crankset.

The bike itself is a ultra high mileage 1996 T700, mostly still OEM, that I breathed new life into with a major overhaul. Cosmetically it looks good from just about six yards away or further.

Looks nice Brad. I've found those old C'dale touring rigs to be great all around bikes. They are stiff enough to handle a load like a dream and still pretty light and responsive for every day riding.
