    Not sure how old this one is yet, haven't run the serial number. My other bike is a 2000 Cannondale f2000 in matte black. The Headshok Fatty doesn't hold air any longer so I ride it locked out. This one needs a good cleaning and the bars rewrapped, hopefully I can get tot hat today if my daughter wants to do some training. Got her back from Portugal last night. Monday is my birthday so this will probably be my present.

    Congrats and enjoy! I love bicycling...around 4 x per week even in winter near Chicago (if there is no ice!).
    My favorite is a single speed 29er with 2 to 1 gear ratio and disk brakes. Moto 1.jpg

    Ha ha. That’s near the top of Mt. Norikura in Nagano, Japan. It’s the highest mountain with a paved road all the way to the top. I cycled up there in a hot day in the middle of July but there was still a lot of snow at the top, as you can see in the photo.

    I helped board up some windows for an elderly gentleman last year before a Hurricane and he gave me a 90's Trek 8700 Carbon fiber {purple}mountain bike. His son said he spent 1200 on it back in the day.It had Manitou forks but they needed a rebuild.
    I spent 200 at a local bike shop and now it rides like a dream. So fortunate to have it as it helps keep these old muscles moving.

    Here is a photo of my Trek doing a photobomb between two of my guitars. I have been an avid bicyclist forever. I still have the Masi I tried to race back in the early 70s. Virgina and Germany have been my favorite places to ride. Virginia has the best trails, ie. Tall Bridge, Capital Trail, etc. I'm in Kansas now and need to start exploring ride opportunities.

    Mine, unfortunately, have turned into dust collectors. Have not been biking at all this summer. Did go with the wife to yoga this morning. Moving is good, but no wind in my hair. Got an old softride solo that always was a bit too big a frame size for me. Should try to sell it an get something more suitable, might motivate me to get off me arse.

    Always wondered about those soft ride bikes. I had a few full suspension mountain bikes in my day and I always felt like I was riding a Cadillac with all the sponginess.

    Those R800 frames were bombproof and still made here in the U.S.

    That's a nice bike for an awesome price, those upgrades are worth twice as much haha. I have a Cannondale hardtail 29er mountain bike that is fully upgraded, also with Mavic wheels. If you ever break a spoke, just have a regular one put in...it'll work fine. The Mavic spokes are hard to find.

    The Banshee has a little smaller tires and a rigid fork now, for bike paths.

    Anybody get snookered by the fixie or fat tire crazes? I almost did. Rode a few of each, and they were fun - but sense kicked in and I never bought.

    I bought a fat tire bike earlier this year and never realized the distance at the bottom bracket was also that much wider. Rode it around my neighborhood a couple of times but my hips hurt IMMEDIATELY both times. Very disappointed.
