Nice. BTW it isn't really considered a build until it's complete with parts.

The OG old English scrip can go suck a .... but that color is the man! It also rules, is SEX and most likely is the dope fly pimp shizzle hotness. Really.

I see you've managed to save a few grams by zip-tieing the swingarm in place instead of using a bolt - nice.

I guess Cannondale is going to stick the Liquigas colors on everything now.

Sweet frame none the less.

I have such a soft spot (or is it a hard spot) for those frames. They just scream at me for some reason. One day I'm going to try one, just you watch! Hopefully that won't really make go into "buying mode" as that would also put me into the dog house mode...

Then, to top it off, you're putting a Carbon Lefty on it! Oh, where's my check book??

That's what I'm talking about.

Just one thing. Isn't it hard to adjust the rear shock while you are riding, or can you do it remotely with your set up?

Thanks for the nice words!

Pedals are around town pedals, Egg Beaters go on during long rides. The weight is 24 with the plat form pedals!
