Cannondale SR800 "Pink Lightning"

At 58cm, it's about a size too small, but I fell in love with the color when I saw the frameset for sale at a bike swap. Built it up with Superbe Pro Accushift drivetrain. I've dubbed it "Pink Lightning." It's my first go-fast road bike. All the other road bikes I own/have owned have been touring, sports-touring, or cyclocross bikes. We'll see how it goes...
