    My Jekyll completely built up

    2004 Cannondale Jekyll- only thing stock is the frame

    Ive owned plenty of other bikes but this is the first Cannondale I have built up. The only bike that has come close to this bike was the 2003 Santa Cruz Superlight. It beats the Gary Fisher hifi deluxe 29er by a mile, it beats the specialized stumpy fsr expert also. Very happy with my first Cannondale. The lateral stiffness is amazing. Very snappy too!

    Specs:
    Cannondale Jekyll Frame
    Manitou Minute 2 fork
    Magura Marta hydro's
    Chris King Headset
    Chris King Iso Disc Hubs (Front and rear)
    ZTR 355 tubeless wheels. (awesome)
    Continental Mountain king 2.2 rear, WTB prowler MX 2.3 front
    Fox float RL w/ pro pedal
    Salsa bits (skewers, headset cap, seat clamp)
    Thomson seatpost
    Specialized saddle
    Santa Cruz Peaty grip
    XTR rear
    LX front
    XTR shifters
    Scram chain
    Easton Monkey lite CF handle bars
    Kore Elite stem

    All in at 28.85 lbs

    This thing bombs....love it! Its so fast.

    Yeah I am very proud of it!

    I owned a Santa Cruz superlight before this one and I feel that I am almost faster on his ride than the SC

    BTW just weighed it- 28.92 lbs on an XL frame (with new bashgaurd, after mud cleaned off, no big nasty pedals)

    Updates! And disclaimer....The pedals are on there because I commute to campus on this bike everyday and rocking clips and shoes isnt very practical...I need new flats...

    I looked at that rear drivetrain pic and realized it needed to be cleaned

    Updates
    Blackspire Bashguard
    Mowa stem caps (just a little bling )
    a solid clean!

    Are the caps available in red ?
    That would have worked well with the rest of your red parts !
    I have a real nice Rush that I started adding upgrades and bling that
    I too commuted to work but the nicer it got , the more I feared it getting
    stolen or parts taken so now I have a MTB beater I commute on and leave
    my Rush for the trails

    Yeah they were available in red but they were supposed to go on another bike but i sold it so I kept them and I didnt want to spend more money to get some red ones lol

    Yeah I am currently building a single speed road bike for daily commuting. Its pretty fun but as of right now I do everything I can to keep it safe. I really want a red salsa lip lock collar so anyone wanna buy my black one? :lol
