Okay I confess I have being addicted to mountain bikes for a long long time, in fact since the 70' when they start to show up on magazines (skateboard mags in my case) but I only have the chance to get one in 1983 then i was living in Colombia making it a little hard to get

In any case many years when by, until my dream of having a bike shop became a reality, but not just any shop but a "Cathedral" for bikes since I consider them works of art.

Here are some cheesy pictures since I don't have any good ones.

A few days before we open, showing the "Bike trees"


One the right a frame jig I made so I can produce my own concept frames.


The counter made of stain blue concrete with sprockets inlay on it as "Stars"

Kind of full of bikes




I show you more stuff later I promise

As we were riding I told Jessica on the back something like "never wear panties under your bike shorts, it will rub you raw and it makes a girls butt look bad with panty lines" as I pointed to my new buddy.

After the ride Jessica went right up to her and told her word for word what I said. My blonde friend jokingly yelled at me and started laughing. The next weekend she came over and said "Hey Michael" and as she did, she spun around, bent over grabbing both ankles, looked between her legs and yelled "Look, no panty lines"! I about rolled off the tailgate of the truck laughing my butt off!!
You gotta love a woman with a good sense of humour. Its always easy to find the noobs in the pack as they all seem to make that mistake.
Speaking of women showing there butts we were out on a club ride one evening and one of the squirrels had a big wobble causing tires to cross and a bunch went down,after we gathered ourselves up one of the girls was voluntarily opening up the back of her shorts to show me the road rash on her butt. So I didnt decline to inspect the abraision on her nice little bum. Needless to say the wife was monitoring the situation and was not as impressed with her bum as I was.

I logged a lot of miles on one of those. I rode it as my primary bike for almost 10 years. I have not ridden it in over 5 years. The other day I took it down to the shop and tuned it up and rode it around, I could not see my self ever riding it again. So I gave it away on CL hoping that it will get used.

It wasn't the Beast of the East...

but my first Cannondale was a 1987 sm500, in Blueberry.

http://sanaandterry.com/cannondale/year/1987/1987.pdf

I thought the high bottom bracket was pretty cool.

When you posted that photo, I started googling Cannondale from the late '80s because I couldn't remember what year/model I had. It took a while to find because I thought it was newer than '87, I bought it in '89, I think, as a leftover.

I found this cool vintage Cannondale site:
http://www.vintagecannondale.com/

The pdf copy of the 1990 catalog is from the shop where I bought mine.

I had the Criterium (road) version as my first road bike.

GREAT for crits and sprints, but anything over say 90min sucked.

Woke up to warm temps but rain. So I rode the trainer out in the garage.

for getting in 3 x 6min 'cruise intervals'
for havin to ride the damn trainer in the first place. Yeah, I coulda HTFU and gone outside, but the nasties all over the road from the last snow make that less than desirable.

Now its alternating between coming down in buckets and sunny and warm. ...and can you say WIN-DEE?! I've already checked in (and finished) a repair and am working on lunch.
