    Question about buying a "New" 2011" Flash off of eBay. I wanted to start a new thread but i don't have enough posts so hopefully this thread can help.....
    I am buying from a high rated seller but can't determine if he is an authorized Cannondale dealer. What kind of risk am I taking by buying this bike and possibly not getting the factory frame warranty.

    I plan on having the bike inspected by a local Cannondale dealer when I get it but that still leaves me with questions about the long term.

    Your input is greatly appreciated!

    only a alu project with some issues on the frame ...

    so for the first time , i will transfert the components from that Zeta bike to the Flash

    but this is not my project ...this is only a way to solve my dirt riding hunger

    too much road in last weeks

    for the project you have to wait some months , sorry

    some build reports:

    1) i machined off the lip on the 131mm spindle , i installed a triple spider with two rings 36-24T CarbonTi , using some custom carbon spacers to keep the assembly well firm.

    i did the same on a 122mm spindle for a future integrated combo chainrings , i will need narrower spacers

    2) i installed a 100mm reduced to 80 mm Lefty ELO old fork , it's from 2002 ...

    i love this fork : without rebound adjustement , it has a very fast travel

    3) i used Indutry Nine wheelset , i bought in may2011 , i used them in another bike , love the
    sound of their freewheel

    pictures are on my blog , see signature

    Very nice!

    I dig the older Lefty, titanium lower, 9 year old high tech, awesome!
    Forks are for eating, Lefty's are for racing,

    just an "little" update ...

    in 1 month this frame will go ....

    i found a new HM frame

    so when it will be at home , i am carbolifting it

    i want a naked Flash

    hope to have a close to 900 g frame

    sanded and with custom decals, no clearcoat will be painted on.

    i found a 2012 lefty PBR too , but i am keeping the ELO in my garage , not for sale.

    100 mm , to have a shorter fork ( 90mm 29er forks are 3 cm longer than it ) , to be reduced in travel to 70 or 80mm , to verify tyre clearance

    some new light parts will be added .

    especially in the crankset and seating zone .

    other parts will be transferred , simply ...

    today i am at 8670 g with this bike

    FLASH 29er – part 8 « eliflap

    hope to stay as close as possible to 8000 g

    yay, i look forward to seeing the results! the white paint is a ***** to get off by the way - it's also pigment heavy removing it will get the weight right down. good luck i am sure you'll have fun doing it.

    Why do you want to use a RED derailleur? Well, obviously weight but a lot of cross guys downgrade the titanium cage to steel for better shifting.

    Yeah, I do that a lot. :P

    but the Red derailleur isn't supposed to shift that great. I know cross guys downgrade the cage to steel. I wonder if the Super X front derailleur is a standard cage or has the pro downgrade. Hmmmm...
