    my first Cannondale Jeckyll

    been looking for the best used bang for my $600 budget and it happened today. Was looking at local craigslist yardsales and saw an estate sale with a yellow bike. Could only make out the name on the frame as Cannondale.

    Pretty excited, ive never owned this nice of a bike before.

    Bad ass. I love the angles of the old Jekyll in smaller sizes. Adjusted to full slack mode and they ride awesome on flowy downhill as well!

    Nice color! I loved my Jekyll 3000, some bastard stole it... boo hoo...

    Mendon Cyclesmith rebuilt the Headshok for $80 and it was superplush.

    Well went buy and it was a pretty nice 2000 Jackyll. I rode it and it was love at first ride. The price? $1000. Well bought a few other dog and sporting good items and one of the estate folks tell me there going to go 1/2 price on remaining items on Fathers day.
    I rode back today at 5 minutes before they closed today and the let me buy it for $500 since I could not make it the next day.
