Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Cannondale Capo

The pics are up at the c-dale website. I was actually looking for a geared bike to sit next to the trakbikes when i stumbled upon copy about nyc and messengers and being hard and whatnot. black or white.

man and i just bought a pista concept and was going ot have it powdercoated white. now i will not stand out at all

Hehe...
"How did we do it?

1. We identified the root of fixed gear and messenger culture. NYC yo!
2. We worked with shops who are face to face with these riders everyday... Toga NYC, Sid's NYC, Larry and Jeff's NYC
3. We developed our rider performance criteria: Style, Simplicity and Durability Handling.
4. And built the bike."

Also includes a pic of Team Puma I think.

P.S. I am not a Cannondale shill.

CAAD 5 Optimo? does not compute.
I thought the only thing that separated CAAD 5 from CAAD 7 was the Optimo tubing.....

OH MY GOSH! this is not good for my financial health! i always loved cdale frames, and always hoped that they'd come out with a streetable fixed gear bike.

and now what happens? oh boy...i am doomed.

It's not white, though. "Raw hi-bright" is Cannondale's way of saying "bare aluminum with clear coat"

Yup. Soiled myself again.

Edit: Regarding the pictured bike above, rather than the one on the C'Dale site.

Is it? I guess the colour scheme threw me off; it resembles the bare aluminum CAAD8 road bikes for 2006.

so who knows what "2007 Early Release" means? Released before 2007? Or early in 2007? One of the Puma riders (Alfred I think) was in Bike Works while I was there earlier this week talking something about getting one of the new team bikes painted, guess they might have these in their hands already...

I'm impressed... almost 20 posts and no one's busted out, "Capo? Looks more like Crappo to me!"

I'm here all week. Try the veal.

felipe was riding his freewheel in the race yesterday. some people who skitch a lot prefer singlespeed to fixed. actually, come to think of it, a bunch of people were riding singlespeed freewheel bikes in the race yesterday--including a bunch of the top 20 finishers.

perhaps mixed in with "how can we finally profit off this Puma deal we made?"

but whatever, combined with the new schwinn it looks like the quality of the new complete fixies being offered is going up, and that can only be a good thing. (Unless you are Tony Arms, but I think he's got market niche and rep in a good place already).

Word.

Vintage, custom, and high-end bikes will always have a place along with these off of the shelf bikes, so I don't think that people will feel like their territory is being encroached.

Let's encourage this. I for one have already encouraged my GF (at the time) to buy a off the shelf SS MTB and my buddy is about to buy an off the shelf SS roadie.

Maybe this trend (no doubt helped by current gas prices) will encourage more people to ride bikes as a whole which is GREAT.
