Cannondale Caffeine 2009

FUN! This was my first "nice" bike ever. I owned two much cheaper Cdales before this, but they were both stolen. The guy in the store where I bought them felt sorry for me so he offered me a job and a discount on the bike. I bought it in the beginning of 2010 as a 2009 model - the last year Cannondale was "Handmade In USA" - and have been taking very good care of it ever since. It can really take a beating!

Well, I was the boy standing outside the shop window, mouth wide open, for weeks until i decided to go for it. I worked in the shop for several months to pay the bike off. That's something I'll always remember when riding this i guess....
