    Idea! Cannondale Flash - Custom Pink

    Hi folks,

    Here I present you my new Cannondale Flash. I thought that this one deserves a new topic because is a unique bike, make for a unique cause. You might know that the pink ribbon is an international symbol of breast cancer awareness. Pink ribbons and the color pink in general, identify the wearer or promoter with the breast cancer brand and express moral support for women with breast cancer. More about this you can read on my blog: Official website of Vlad Sabau | Why pink?



    Frame: Cannondale Flash – Custom Pink
    Fork: Cannondale Carbon Lefty PBR – Custom Pink
    Headset: Cannondale SI
    Stem: Cannondale SI
    Handlebar: Truvativ Stylo World Cup
    Grips: ESI Chunky Pink
    Brakes Ashima PCB – Custom Pink
    Seatpost: Tune Stakes Stuck – Pink
    Seat clamp: Cannondale
    Saddle: Tune Komm Vor – Pink
    Crankset: Truvativ Noir – Pink
    Rear derailleur: Sram X.0 – Pink
    Front derailleur: Sram
    Shifters: Sram X.0
    Cassette: Sram PG990
    Chain: KMC X9SL
    Pedals Xpedo MF4TI
    Hubs: Tune Cannonball / Kong
    Spokes: Sapim CX Ray
    Rims: ZTR Alpine
    Tires Continental
    Weight: 8.02kg (with 2.2 Race King tires)

    More photos are available here: Official website of Vlad Sabau | Bike

    The bike is made with parts that are race ready but of course is made to be strong enough. That's why is not lighter than this.

    I am looking forward to get your feedback

    Cheers,
    Vlad

    I thought it was for Ivan Basso to use for the crazy uphill time trial stage on a gravel road for the soon to start Giro d'Italia!

    Great bike. I love seeing bikes in other colors than the typical black, red, and white.

    Hey guys,

    Thanks a lot for the feedback.
    @ Mendon - I tried to contact Industry9 but I didn't got an answer and as Sapim is supporting me for so many years was the only way to do it.

    @Parkincake - so far the brakes are working great, they have the new lever so I don't have to get them so close to the bars. Anyway I have enough power and a great modulation.

    Did Cannondale paint the frame for you? Or did you have to get it done elsewhere?
    and no, I am not missing the other half of my fork....

    I'd ditch the pink cables and post but other than that I like it.
