I've never been a big fan of Cannondales, regardless of where they've been made.
What kind did you get?
And I'm glad you didn't get hurt worse during your flip.
It usually takes me about 5 minuits.....to puke. Then after around 50 min or so, the agony is over. God I miss it!
Me neither since I owned one in the late 80s. More'n 90min and my nads went numb, back hurt, and things that shouldn't hurt did. ...and that was when I was 20!
Now? Gimme something less stiff, more comfy and lemme rack up the miles.
Tested a buddy's C-dale a few years ago. Traded off my S-Works for his C-dale. That lasted just a short while. Rode too stiff for my tastes.
oh, a variety of reasons... I didn't like the geometry or the oddball monoshock forks of a loaned cannondale mountain bike I rode for a couple weeks ... didn't like the feel of the ride of a road bike that I rode for a couple days, it felt stiff and mushy at the same time, which is hard to explain... It seems like all their bikes use oddball sizes for everything, making it hard to fit parts onto them...
admittedly, this was about 12-15 years ago, but I havent' seen anything newer that impressed me.
Things are ok. Work(sucks) is slow and I gonna be work(sucks)ing 7 on/7 off. That'll be good I think. We'll see.
Not bad. Have an income now. That's good. Interferes with my social life. That's bad.
Fixin to do an externship in SF at the end of the month so I can FINALLY get on with the Phlebotomy thing.
I've never owned one, they were always a bit funky in my eyes too. But I recentley test rode (twice) their new Systm 6. From what I understand, it's the first CF bike where they don't wrap the CF when molding it, instead it's laid flat, the full length of the tube. They say it's about 300 % stronger than their previous top model (six 13).
All I know is the ride felt superb. The humongous head tube/set felt like a motorcycle up front. smooth and firm ride, really impressed me.
I also like that they're not part of that Trek fold (they seem to own everything now), and their premum mods are made here (frames too, except synapse).
Take a look at it sometime. When I can afford it, it'll be my nxt bike.
Cannondales haven't done it for me for a while now. I keep gravitating towards a Look frame or something a little more off-the-wall.
I like owning a bike that not everyone owns... That's why I bought a Bontrager Road Lite, a PDM Concorde, several Battaglins, etc. The exception is my S-Works fetish (to use the word lightly). They seem to be great all-round bikes even if Specialized is kind of an ass to work with at the shop level.
They sure sprint nice!
They also make a damn good touring bike.
Ragged out old F2000... not 3 miles from my house is a 17 mile mostly single track loop through a state park. Wonderful ride that I've done 1,000 times
Specialized that I keep down at the beach... not a bad bike but the Cannondale is MUCH better.
If yer not posing, yer seat's too high. (I do believe I've pointed this out before...)
I enjoyed my F2000 too. Too bad it was a skotch too small. I like the idea of the Headshok but HATE the proprietary stem.
I saw this picture and immediate thought the same thing. Been doing this so long, the first thing I notice when I see someone ride, is their position and technique.
I bet I drive my GF nutz...
Seat's too high/too low
TT's too short/too long
Every time I see a cyclist. Its rare that I see someone WITHOUT major fit issues.
and its such an easy thing to fix!
So I blitzed home yesterday and got dressed to go riding while Stick Me was primping for work. We both left the same time.
I went for a 60min ride, she went to work for 12 hours. I win!
Felt pretty good. Right until I turned into the wind! mg damn headwinds. Oh well.
Tonite I blitzed home and went *gasp* for a run. 38min of huffing and puffing. Somehow, I can't seem to breathe normally. Feels like I'm only using half my lungs. Prolly a leftover from that cold I've been fighting... Run, run, walk, walk, walk, run, run, run, repeat the walking, etc. I don't remember having this many issues running in the past, but then I've never been damn near 40 before either!
