    Cannondale factory pics

    A couple of us stopped by the Cannondale factory in Bedford, PA on the way to the
    Wilderness 101. They sponsor our team and we had prearranged a tour but I think anyone can schedule a tour by calling them. We have some pictures posted on our team web site. Nearly every operation is done by hand/

    Great post! I was at the Cannondale factory about a month ago, and had a great tour. It gives you a great feeling seeing these bikes basically going from person to person, hand to hand and being "Hand-built", not going down a huge assembly line with big machines doing the welding, cutting, etc.

    If anyone's in the area and has a chance to go, it's a must for any Cannondale enthusiast. I'm planning on going back in October and taking my son.

    If you know you are going to be in the area (Bedford Pa), just call the factory and ask to speak to the Scott in human resources, and he will set up the tour for you. It's well worth your time.

    If you find yourself heading that way, let me know and I will get you Scott's information so you can get hooked up... They are all great people, you'll have a helluva time.
