Polished Cannondale Track

My Cannondale Track, named Crackles, is my new favorite bike. It's pretty light, incredibly stiff, and feels like a rocket on the streets.

Frame:
Cannondale Track frame

Fork/Headset:
Kinesis aluminum/carbon fork, Cane Creek S6 headset

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Dura-Ace FC-7400 crankset, Shimano UN54 bottom bracket

Pedals:
Specialized pedals, Soma clips, Fuji/Sugino straps

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
Surly 18-tooth cog, Sugino Messenger 46-tooth chainring, KMC K710 chain

Handlebars/Stem:
Syntace bullhorns with Stolen Money Grips and Cinelli cork tape, Kona stem

Saddle/Seatpost:
Selle Italia Turbo Titanium saddle, Cannondale Competition seatpost

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Spinergy Stealth 16-spoke wheel, Hutchinson tire (700x23)

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Velocity Deep V laced to a Paul track hub, Vittoria Zaffiro tire (700x23)

Accessories:
Spoke cards from various events I've raced in

More Info:
The name, Crackles, comes from the shortening of "Cannondale and Track" into "Crack." Crack just didn't sound right as a bike name, so it evolved into Crackles.

I've got an old FC-7400 crank as well and was wondering what length spindle you chose on the bottom bracket?

Thanks! I actually don't really miss either of the Cannondales too much...they're so stiff that they would always beat up my body after really long rides.

Wow! Amazing Cannondale Track. I've stripped and polished a few frames in my day, but this came out beautiful. One of my favorite bikes of all time. Love the fork too.
