Haven't posted a picture of it in a minute; here's my '21 Sutra. Thought a steel touring bike was going to hold up, but I kept busting rear spokes and eventually cracked the rear wheel.

Now there's a Velocity Cliffhanger on the back.

Love your bike, but that bench steals the show.

How much do you weigh if you don't mind me asking? I love the Domane but weigh about 240 and have issues with another carbon frame and flex when I put power down causing rubbing issues.

Real big fan of aero wheels. I believe the biggest bang for the buck in aero drag reduction is from a good aero wheelset. All the other drag reduction is minimal although it does add up, but generally because it's "aero" they charge an arm and a leg for it. My 80's Nishiki Sebring uses a pair of aero wheels and that is my fastest upright bike because of it.

I think your Cannondale is much older than 2010 ...like 97'-99'? My understanding is some frames were still built in the U.S. as late as 2007 - but Cannondale certainly has had a few owners over the decades. Cool retro look to it!!

It’s a 2010 T1. That was the last year that Cannondale made their bikes in the US. See page 41 in in their 2010 catalog. Cannondale made touring bikes for only a couple of more years after 2010 so this is also among the last Cannondale touring bikes made. Pity as they are excellent touring bikes.

I also have a 2010 Cannondale road tandem (US made)




and a repainted 2004 T800



As well as a 2003 T800 that the T1 replaced. I didn’t need to replace it but I wanted a different color bike and the T1 frame showed up on Fleabay.

I see what your saying now after looking at the catalog - they really took a retro approach to those graphics for that model; even the headbadge on yours looks retro. Your tandem has the graphics that are totally in line with the mid-late 1st decade 2000's models. I like the color scheme you chose for your 2004 - gorgeous! I agree with you ... I always loved the Cannondale touring models - there were only a couple of years that they made them with a low enough stand over height for me, but I always wanted one. I owned a late 80's Trek 520 which was nice (chro-mo) but always later coveted the Cannondales! I am most familiar with 1992-2007 Cannondale bikes, and I remember they were starting to make most of their bikes overseas by 06-07'. I'm glad they at least extended their US made touring models to 2010. Thanks for the education!

They went back to the ďRailroad stationĒ head decal for the 2010 T1 but I donít think they did it for any other years or models. The decal set used on my 2004 has the train station logo but I think that was a retro decal set. I didnít paint the bike nor did Cannondale ever do a black bike with orange decalsÖat least not in the touring models. I bought the frame because of those orange decals.
