Caad 5 track

bought this off the 'list to get the dura-ace cranks .. rode it for a bit but then decided to sell it and work on something else. i think i let this one go because it just said cannondale too many damn times on it .. it was a great ride.

Frame:
52 cm Cannondale CAAD5 track

Fork/Headset:
cannondale slice carbon fork w/ alu steerer

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
DuraAce 165 cranks , dura ace BB

Pedals:
MKS Sylvan track pedals , all city cages/straps

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
47t 1/8 Dura-Ace chainring , 15t All City cog , Izumi 1/8 track chain ( gold w/blck pins )

Derailleurs/Shifters:

Handlebars/Stem:

More Info:
Bought it off a guy who says he bought it and rode it in HongKong for a while ( hence the HK Fixed crew sticker on it ).The frame was in perfect shape - basically NOS. Dunno how anyone can ride a bike for a couple of years without even getting even one tiny ding on the frame - but no complaints here !

honestly I can't tell ya - I had a caad5 road bike that fit the same clamp so I just took that one into the shop and asked them to sell me another one for the track frame.

My 2005 optimo track has the exactly same issue with the rear bridge. I'm thinking of sanding it down a bit to let the rear wheel go further in but I'm worried of the rear triangle loses strength :(

i wouldn't recommend you modify the frame to fit the wheels a few mm closer to the seat tube .. for the amount of space it would allow you'd likely put your rear triangle at risk!

yeah this thing is really solid - and it fits me so well , I think it's gonna be hard to choose what to ride this summer ;)

i noticed that the rear wheel can rub out on the back brake mount - with a 23mm gatorksin on there. I had to use a new chain cut one or two links longer than the usual in order to allow the wheel to spin clear of that bridge . There's lots of room in the dropout and for the wheel to move in - I could easily lose a chain link if the bridge wasn't in the way. Not that it matters - just never seen that on a track bike and I've had plenty of different frames..

that is odd! never ran into that issue with mine but maybe it has to do with the smaller size.
