Starting with a bare metal frame, I painted this one with a scheme that (I think) looks much better than the usual plain Jane Cannondale look of the time. The original fork was missing so a new Kinesis fork was used. This bike was built with climbing and comfort in mind so it has very low gearing, taller stem and a gel saddle.

I built this bike from a bare frame for a friend. He was a college football player and is a very large man. He lives in the mountains hence the low gearing; He loves the result. The photos were made on a test ride and the saddle position is set for me, not the owner, who is 3 inches taller.
