Dear kind people of MTBR please help me out.
I own one bike and would like this bike but don't know if it is a great deal or Frankenstein's monster.
Please help! Here's the ad
Cannondale Scalpel Mavic Team Replica
This is not an original Scalpel -- it is a custom. I wanted certain parts and at the time couldn't find the bike that had them all. Below is a list of components and parts that make up this bike:
Cannondale Scapel Mavic Team Replica Frame (Carbon Rear End)
Fox Float 32 Front Fork with Lockout
DT Swiss 2.0 Rear Shock
Avid Juicy 5 Brakes
SRAM X9 Front and Rear Derailleur
SRAM X9 Front and Rear Trigger Shifters
Shimano XT Deore Front and Rear Hubs
Mavic x717 Rims
Michelin Rear Tire
Kenda Stick-E 2.6 Front Tire (it's a beast)
TruVativ FireX Crank
Selle Italia Flite Seat
Easton Magnesium Stem
Ritchey Comp Handlebars
Cane Creek Headset
Ritchey Handlebar Grips
I also have Shimano SPD pedals on, that I have on all my bikes, they can be included in the sale or some regular plastic pedals. This bike is my baby, the only reason I want to sell it is to get build a 29er. In a perfect world, I would sell the frame and keep all the components for the next project, but there's not enough room for my wife and I's bikes, so one has to go before the new one starts.
This is not a brand new frame, but the components (brand new when built) are only a couple years old and shift flawless, brake effortless and make for a great ride. The only BAD things about this bike are. . .the front brake squeaks a little. I don't think it's true. I moved a year ago and I think it got bent a little. It still stops on a dime. There are also a few blemishes and pain chips on the frame. I bought the frame used and the chips came with it, but they haven't gotten any worse since purchase.
Please email me for more pictures or questions. Asking $750, but throw and offer out there and I may consider it! Thanks for looking!
