Lol I have since removed it and it stays in my backpack. Not so much worries about being aero, rather than surviving pushing 48/17 into a headwind on an incline. Just thinking about it makes my quads twitch

Looks pretty slick like the sworks evade

A bit too skeletal and tron-like for me

I saw a pic with the smith optics sunglasses somehow mounted on the front of the helmet. appeared to be designed to clip on

[edit]

here it is...



from that angle, the middle of the smith optics helmet resembles those classic leather helmet caps from back in the day...

I never knew there was a bike forum until today! So great to see so many cycling enthusiasts on RS. I myself am a Cannondale junky and love the Bad Boy series. I am slowing building up another Cannondale as my other one that I loved with all my heart and soul was stolen from my backyard several months back.

In case anyone is interested, I purchase a Specialized S-Works carbon saddle and 29er carbon rigid fork to install on my Cannondale but changed my mind. Both are brand new.

Thanks for the welcome. Indeed, it's a wicked saddle but I want to stick with an all black theme on my build.

Just for nostalgic sakes, here's a pic of my previous ride before some f*ckers took her away from me

Sorry to hear about it being stolen! I just witnessed a bike theft from my own apartment building a couple days ago actually. (Not my bike thankfully)
The VPD just busted a theft ring, perhaps you want to contact them to see if your bike was part of the stolen property? A long shot, but worth a try.

Mind telling us where/when//how your bike was stolen? Just so the rest of us can learn from it and to avoid it.
Will keep an eye out for your bike.

Nice BB1? I used to have a cheapo BB9, I still regret selling it sometimes (although it was a bit too big for me).


Lol even as a big proponent of road discs, I have to admit I was surprised they decided to put discs on the CAAD series so soon. Seems like Cannondale is going all in w/ road disc.

I thought bike rave was next weekend... And I'm going.

Yes the new CAADs look great with the disk and internal routing! I still like my CAADX. Its not as neat of a disk setup as the new stuff but this bike takes a beating being a commuter and CX bike! Tempting though!

Yes, I believe Bike Rave is next weekend as well, I was going to go, but I'll be in the States during that time. Anyone need anything bike specific from USA? I'll be hitting at least one bike shop.

Time to update, got a few more bikes recently (Hey, I got rid of some too). Who wants a bike???

2011 Opus Flux (just sold)


2012 Trek Marlin 29'er 19", need to sell this one! Who wants?


2001 Rocky Mountain Hammer Race, yes it's just a frame, for now. Anyone got some XTR parts they want to off-load? Told ya, I love my RM's!


1998 Marin Hawk Hill, who wants a beater bike??? 100 bones, ride it away. Has a Marzocchi Bomber shock on there. (since sold)


1995 Trek 1500, considered vintage yet? I was proud of this find, all original components.


2010 Cannondale Hooligan 8. Been looking for a Hooli like forever! Finally found one for my collection! Super fun to ride around on!

All these years, I've never actually owned a Cannondale, and this past week, I got 2 (the other Cannondale is a old M400 Cad3 frame waiting to be built).

Guess because of my injury, been busy working/fixing/selling/trading bikes and logging very few bike miles! Hope that changes soon!

Do you join a lot of the bc rando events? I couldn't do the Canada one but I was thinking about joining the 200k on the 12th.

Other than the obvious, test riding to see which one feels better to you...

One thing to consider that is non subjective is that "new" ultegra (6800) is 11-speed, and considered to be the closest in performance to Dura-Ace groups in a while. The Roubaix's 105 is most likely 5700 and only 10-speed. That's assuming that they're both 2014 models.
