Not to shabby. Cannondale makes a good bike.
That seat makes my bathing suit area cry
The more I dig the more I find out. Apparently the fork on it came from an R1000. The R800 came with a different fork in 98.
All of them! Yeowch! I couldn’t do it. Look like torture devices
Works great for riding a bike. Might be different if you just want to sit on it all day.
I'll be getting a new seat for it as thsi one is a bit worn. Probably take the seat off my other Cannondale and get a more comfy one for it since my wife will be riding that one more now.
My buddy just got me back into Mt Biking. We have about a half dozen awesome trail systems within 20 minuets of me. I'm looking at the Specialized Stump Jumper if I decide to go full sus or the Specialized Fuse or Cannodale Cujo 2 if I go hardtail.
IMO TREK, Specialized and Cannondale are all winners. Saw a really old Specialized full suspension bike in a pawnshop yesterday for $100.
Congrats on the bike, Lonn. Im kind of a beginner road biker myself. Looking forward to more riding in my future.
Nice looking bike and a great deal.
On Sunday I hit a pothole going fast downhill, and flew over the handlebars so I'm taking a break while my elbows, wrists and knees heal up!! Good job I haven't a gig this weekend.
Fellow Brits will get the pothole reference - we specialise in badly maintained roads in the UK.
Very cool bike and blazing deal you got on that.
Cycling used to be a HUGE part of my life. I was also 40 pounds less then. I've been trying to sneak back into it but work, kids, house chores, car stuff, a stupid accident 5 years ago where I had to have my ACL replaced, and too many family members dying, etc. has REALLY derailed that part of my lifestyle.

I lived in the UK for 6 years and I can guarantee you've never seen potholes like those in the city I live in, Indianapolis. In the last 10 years I've replaced 5 AUTO tires due to flats or broken steel belts in tires.
Used a bicycle for transportation for many years. Retired my road bike in 1989. Been riding a Santa Cruz full suspension for 20 years ... bicycles and guitars are what keep me sane.
Solo ride last week in Wilder Ranch State Park:
I’ve got an old one.....I need to get back on the road
Wow. Great find!
Lots of nice bikes here!
The struggle is real. I'm an obsessed cyclist myself, have been for 20 years. (Thanks Lance!) Always the dilemma. 4 hour ride, practice guitar? Then there are other obsessions like audio (stereo tube amps, vinyl etc). Never enough time in a day. I need to retire asap!
No pictures, but I used to ride a lot. Singletrack is my love and I still have my bike. It is a '91 Rockhopper Comp and I upgraded a lot of it. It has got a lot of titanium upgrades on it and not much on it is stock. I put a Mag 21 fork on it. The only think that is stock is the frame basically. I like hardtails as I am more of a climber than downhiller. Boise's foothills have miles and miles of singletrack from beginner to expert.
I was the dude you see at ski resorts riding up the hills before descending. Gotta earn the descent dudes.
I had a road bike as I was into triathlons and some long road rides, but I sold it once cell phones got popular. I will not ride a bike on streets anymore. I see too many idiots going over the white line. It is scary enough to drive a car and you see the idiot behind you looking down at his lap constantly.
My real love is running though, so I still do that. I don't race anymore, damn races are getting too spendy and the T-shirts are not getting any better.
I don't live near the foothills in Boise anymore, so I haven't been on my bike in a long time. I need to get something on my car so I can carry the bike there to ride. I used to just take off from my place on the North Side in Boise and be in the hills in a few minutes.
