The anthracite is iconic for sure. I had zero intention of looking for another bike and thought the first would hold me over for a while. When I saw the black 1000 pop up nearby, I couldn't help myself. It's interesting seeing the differences between the two, notably; the downtube and top tube are 1/4" larger on the '90, and the rd cable stop is a plastic piece vs. the '88's integrated metal stop. I need to do a bit of work to get the '88 in running order: True the wheels, new cables and housing, brake pads, chain, different saddle and pedals — the list goes on. I've already removed the stickers, which were old and brittle, flaking off.

This weekend, I finally tracked down the elusive Cannondale trunk bag! It came with two rear panniers, which are in better condition than the ones I already had. It's a very good look on the black 1000.
