    It seems heavy, does it have a 2x9 cranks? I had a F1000SL '00 year, CAAD 4 frame and I replaced the stock wheels with Mavic Crossmax pre-UST version and the pedals and I remember the bike was around 22.5 lbs or 10.25 kg

    The bike was a rocket!!! In the end I traded-in the frame & fork for an Alu Rush/Carbon SL fork as my body it's not the same almost 9 years later lol

    Post some pics when you have a chance.

    Seems normal for a stock XT-built F bike... But after the eliflap™ treatment, it should weigh much less than that!

    Eongratulations Eli,

    nice buy, I really like the colour scheme, one of Cannondale's best. Also a classy timeless look with the Fatty. Enjoy this ride.

    The bike looks great, now I see why it's that heavy (if you can call 24lbs heavy )

    It's all in the brakes/wheels/handlebar/seat.

    I've got that bike too - it's set up as my bitumen trainer. I've got xtr dual control levers and matching brakes and derailleurs, the original thomson seatpost, an Aliante seat, Crossmax wheels and slick tyres.
    dunno how light it is though - I don't have scales; but it's fast and stiff.
    How much lighter are the new fatty solos?

    Nice ike, I usually don't like the look of Cdale bikes with regular forks but I have to say your bike looks really good with the Fox fork.

    Thanks. I took a 1lb weight penalty to run that Fox on there but it's been really great to me. I'm considering trying out a carbon rigid for certain trails. That would take two full pounds off my already considerably light front end.

    Very true, and a gorgeous strut indeed, but it costs as much as my entire build cost me so it is beyond my budget.
