How do you determine what model a Cannondale frame is?

I ran across a yard sale special that the owner thinks is a CAAD7. It has been "Custom Painted" so there is nothing to indicate what it is. I know that I can find the date and size in the serial...

I was just trying out a Synapse at my lbs but it did not have the new 105 and I was just wondering if I should wait. How do you like your Synapse? I'm debating between the Synapse 5 and the Felt Z85.

I had a creaking crank and fixed it by disassembling and regreasing it, as stated in the quote. Once it was reassembled and adjusted, there was no more creak.

Best hitch rack for the money?

I'm looking for a 2 bike rack that fits into my 2" hitch. There are several to choose from, some good, some bad and some horrible. Help me pick a good one that won't break the bank.

What do I lube with after the flushing?
