Cleaned up my 93 R900 and decided to join

Decided to get back into riding. Cleaned up my 1993 Cannondale R900 and went for a 12 mile ride, safe to say I'm out of shape. But not the bike. Anyways joining to learn and see what I can upgrade on the bike to get it running better as I run better.

Tried to post a pic, guess I'm not allowed to yet.

Thanks! I've had it now for 13-14 years. And it seems to out-perform most in the sub $2k price range. The only thing I think I want to do is maybe go with a lighter and more aerodynamic wheelset.

Welcome. I also love those Cannondales and had a R 900 once. Yeah, you’ll need 10 posts to add a pic. But please do show us the bike when you hit 10.

Welcome aboard from a follow Cannondale owner. I've got six of the dang things and resisting buying another one that is on CL locally. If you just reply to all the people welcoming you to BF you'll have your 10 posts in no time and we can see your bike
