Cannondale love.

**first up, and the older of the two is mine. Dont mind the dent on the seat tube, lack of handlebar tape or the ugly fonted name, its a beast. It has an odd mix of the o.g. Suntour components and newer Specialized hubs & crankset and Mavic wheels. Im really liking the relocated shifters and tight geo. Only problem is the front derailer is making some funky noise so i need to get that checked out and it has this really tiny useless chainring in the front haha!

**This second one is Tats' bike. Its newer, and shinier and i would've kept it but the relaxed touring geo bothers me and the 27" wheels make it difficult to upgrade and buy tires for. It has most of the original parts unlike the other one so it shifts smoothly. I hope Tats puts many miles on this vintage beauty.
