    2005 Bike colours

    Need I say anymore and I thought 2004's where off putting.

    This year it looks like they have gone for Spiderman Scalpels.

    Or Cannodale down tube logos that are barely visible to the human eye.

    Or Putird Prophet Green.

    I think they look less cheap than the 2004 models. The Scalpel 2000 is available in matte black, very nice and I like the colours of the team replicas more than the 2004.

    I love the look, colour and the almost inexistant stickers of my next bike tough:

    Look if you wanted that I could have done it easy. A bit of warm soapy water and taken the dam stickers off.

    The only trouble you cant change a yuk paint job.

    Please let me loose in the Cannodale design studio, sales will go op %80.

    What went through the designers mind when he created transparent decals. Lets waste production time by applying decals that no body can see. Wouldnt a wise man say well lets improve productivity but appying none if thats the case.

    When you have to wait for that Prophet think about whats holding it up. Yes the man pain stakinly applying those opaque decals.

    Or the man with his spiderman template carefuly getting all the webs right.

    Get real Cannodale!!!.

    Klein where the leaders in Paint Jobs.

    all you need is :

    Polished Alumi
    5 Matts
    5 Metalics
    5 Gradient Colours

    One thing I must praise Klein for that there are no decals. Its all done in Paint which looks amazing.

    Cannodale makes good bike but they lack the attention to detail and finish of other manufacturers.

    Then just get another brand and shut the %$#@ up already!
    First you whine about Trek, now you whine about Cannondale... And why do you need a new bike anyway? Your Trek-made Klein must still be like new from the sidewalk rides you do... The look of a bike is just a bonus really, it how it rides that matters.

    I like women more for how they ride than how they look, but unlike a woman, I beat the hell out of my bikes.

    You can't remove the decals because they're under clear coat, unlike the cheap ghetto rainbow spray Klein jobs. As mentioned previously, if you can't find anything you like get the frame set and custom paint work, the painter can help you with your obviously lacking imagination.

    Excellent

    I for one like a lot of the new colors. The matte Mocha on the Jekyll looks nice and the six13 is blessed with an array of sweet schemes. The matte Grey is me favorite.

    I wish they would have kept the SoBe green/yellow. Did they lose the sponsorship?

    There is no more Sobe team.
