    Sheesh, if she wants to put those stickers on her bike thats her choice...Kinda like wearing a tee shirt that states, "I'm with Stupid" Does that mean you think that everyone you are with is stupid....Anyway, I would like to get those stickers...But I'm not mad at everyone, I just like the sticker

    I was going to comment about it being almost a chick bike, but then I noticed you are female. And, you could probably kick my butt climbing. Make sure you get some dirt on it. No posers aloud with that kind of hardware.

    I do like it. I wish my wife was into riding enough that I could justify the expense.

    Although, my wife calls my bike my girlfriend. I would love to get a sticker that would fit on the swingarm saying, "The Other Woman"

    Honey, my Rush got tangled up with a christmas ornament and look what happened!

    I could never run those chairings here in Arizona, the thought of knocking teeth off on the rocks hurts!

    How do you keep your drivetrain so clean? I've used degreasers and Simple Green, but your chainrings put mine to shame. Please reveal!!

    Good job!

    OK... to answer some of your questions...

    Regarding the F&%@k Appropriate Sticker... besides it being somewhat of an inside joke, it is truly not meant to shout out "angry" or "mad"!!! Unfortunately AND fortunately, it somewhat fits my personality... I'm not one to follow, as I'd rather lead, I am not one to "stay between the lines"... thinking outside the box is a great rule of thumb and if someone says... one more time... "I DON'T THINK THAT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE"... well... I'm gona make more stickers!!!!!!

    Where to get the "Appropriate" sticker? I designed it and had my friend make it for me who owns a company that makes vinyl stickers for race cars, van wraps, banners, etc... ****

    Regarding keeping the drivetrain clean? I use mineral spirits, and an Ultrasonic parts cleaner. It helps to have a powerlink on your chain so you can take it off easily. I put the chain in the Ultrasonic parts cleaner with mineral spirits for about 10 minutes, during that time, dip my bike cleaning brush into the mineral spirits and lightly go over the chainrings and cassette. If you get in the habit of this every 5 to 8 rides (depending on mud or no mud), it not only makes your drive train last longer, it makes cleaning a fast and painless task.

    PS... love the the Rush tangling with the Christmas tree ornament comment, that's exactly what I thought when I put them on the bike So now when I ride with friends and on our tuesday group rides, my bike will not, can not, get mistaken for someone else's (there are 10+ Rushes on those rides)

    ****

    New question here.

    I want some stickers....how much?
    Which sticker are you referring to?

    If anyone is truly interested in a sticker or two, please PM or email me. I'm not here to sell stickers, just share my blinging RUSH

    I designed my "Appropriate" sticker to follow the curves and length of the swingarm, it actually worked out kinda cool Somewhat easy to do in Adobe Illustrator, a program I use daily to pay the bills

    The Cannondale Red/Chome sticker set is 394mm length x 34mm



    The Lefty fork sticker(red, dark blue, turquoise, yellow or grey)

    This build is pretty much a stock 07 Rush "Team" edition with SRAM and Avid componants - I could have picked XTR, but I'm used to SRAM, works excellent and it's a tad lighter

    I did add a few things:

    ~ Middleburn Chainrings - shift like butter!!!!
    ~ Nokon Shifter cables & housing - Red & Silver ano
    ~ Frog Ti pedals
    ~ Hope seatpost quick release - blue ano
    ~ Alien Aluminum seat post - Red ano
    ~ Cassette - XTR Ti
    ~ WTB Pure Ti Saddle


    This build weighs a tad under 24lbs

    I really dig the red/blue/chrome theme.
    Looks awesome.
    Can you get those cannondale stickers in the current capital letters also?
    I'm only curious since I replaced all of my stock parts on my bike with polished aluminum parts and black/chrome stickers would be really rad!.

    I'll check on the all caps logo, and if black and chrome is possible - THAT WOULD LOOK SWEET!!!!. The Cannondale upper & lower case logo seemed to fit right over my all caps logo pretty well, but your right, it would have been cool to match the real Cannondale logo.

    Very nice looking Rush kellijayne! I love the sticker color you put on and the blue you added to the build. Is that a Hope seat collar? A blue Hope QR skewer would also go good on it too! How did you end up getting your seat post red like that? Good gawd ... I have to say thats one sexy bike
