    At least the new grips and seatclamp arrived yesterday. Thomson seatclamp to fit the rest and lizard skins DSP grips in 32,3mm size...

    I like the grips, good size and very grippy. Now Iīm still waiting for the absolute black chainring. New cog and chain already arrived...

    My 2014 Modified Badboy

    • Replaced OPI stem/handlebars with a C3 stem and carbon bars.
    • Replaced hipster leather grips (which look cool but aren't comfortable) with red rubber.
    • Replaced brakes with XT hydros with a massive 180mm front rotor. I can lock the back brake with my pinky and can endo with two fingers in the front brake. The modulation is like playing a violin.
    • Replaced stock seat with a Vertu mesh seat
    • Replaced seat post with carbon fiber one
    • Finally, replaced stock pedals with ultralight aluminum ones


    Total weight: 24.9lbs including the massive discs

    Forum Folks: What can I spend <$500 to drop the weight of my bike? Wheelset? Tires? Drive Chain?

    What's the size of the handlebar? The original size is 730mm but it looks shorter.

    Not sure, but I think it's pretty similar width to the stock...

    Youīre right, it is shorter...
    I cutted it down to 56cm like all my straight flatbars as it fits me better...

    As I'm at 18.8lbs (rigid), I'd start with wheelset as it will make the biggest difference both in weight and drive. Tires can make a difference too, up to 10-12oz depending on what you have atm.

    Wheels, cassette, and cranks. The main reason why mine weighs only 19.7lbs/8.93kg:

    My brand new Cannondale Badboy 2 2015 , rides like a dream feels light and fast. Looks great. Only one quick ride so far, gears and brakes work well, suspension is good to have. Really smooths out the ride. No reflective stickers on the bike at all! completely stealth!

    I have changed everything (with weight weenie parts) to my 2013 bb2 but not the wheels and tyres, to gain 2kg...
    Bad move...wheels and tyres should have been my first priority.


    @woolybell: nice bike!!!
    2015 headshock models come with setback seatpost for the first time.

    2008 BadBoy 700

    Here is my 2008 BB 700. I found it hanging from the ceiling at my LBS five years ago. I picked it up for a good price, since they were closing out last year's model. One of the last "Made in USA" frames from Cannondale. Now just getting around to modifying it.



    Here is my 1x9 set up. Running 36T Wolftooth Comp Narrow Wide Chainring, 11-32 Shimano Cassette, and SRAM X-7 9-spd Short Cage. I also had to shorten the chain four links to get proper length. So far, zero chain drops. Knock on wood.





    This Brooks C17 came in the mail last night. Also added a blue Salsa seat post clamp for bling.





    I cut the handlebar to 58 cm.



    The 700x35 Conti Speed King tires barely cleared the frame near the BB.



    Overall, I am happy with this build. She rides like butter. The bike feels at home in the city, but I found a CX track near my work and I've been running the course this past week with no issues.

    Not sure if this question is for me, but I run stock wheel set. Shimano HB-M475 hubs, Sunrims DS2 rim, DT Swiss spokes, and Conti Speed King 700x35.

    I want to get something lighter, but might have to wait until tax refund time frame. Anyone have any recommendations?

    I'm interested why you have a curve in your derailleur cable housing.
    Mine is straight. Not saying mine is correct. Yours is just set up different to what I've seen.

    I had my long cage derailer swapped out with a short cage one when I converted to 1x9. The tech at my LBS said he also had to swap out my cable since the old one was frayed. I am thinking he just slapped on what was laying around the shop and it may be a bit too big.

    I will have to look at old pics of my bike before I did the swap to see if it had a bend to confirm.

    EDIT: I looked at an old pic before the new derailer and it also had a curve then. Maybe older BB like mine are just not cleanly put together than the newer ones.

    That curve is actually necessary. Without it - the cable would have to do some incredible stretching, just to reach all ranges of the cassette. The curve actually imposes some "leverage"...if you will, so the RD can smoothly do it's job. I once asked Cannondale about this, and they confirmed it. They even said the more "curve"....the better. Here is my 18-pound F2000SL with it:

    Oh, you finally found a F2000SL frame ? It's looking great! I'd paint that fork tho

    While I'm at forks, my BB has headtube of 170mm. Do I have any options of putting any lefty/fatty there ?

    I'm having difficulty fathoming Cannondale's explaination.
    The B Knuckle where the outercasing enters, doesn't move.
    The parallelogram linkage moves the chain left and right and up and down the cassette while remaining parallel to the cogs, along with the spring and the cage holding the jockey wheels. There is absolutely no stretching.
    I did some asking around here, and heard that the curve is purely for those who mount their bikes or tune their bikes using a skewer holding stand. If the cable is straight, the stand can't attach to the skewer freely.

    Hello,
    I need some advice here. Today I got new Brooks saddle and it turns out it doesn't fit. As you can see on the pictures the original BB0 saddle fits perfectly while Brooks doesn't (these "metal bars" should be few millimeters wider).
    What my options are? Is it:
    1. use a lot of force to make it fit ?
    2. find a new seat post that fits new saddle ?
    3. ask for another saddle?

    Thanks

    Those silly Brits. They apparently do not use precision machinery......still. You can make it fit, using a homemade bar spreader(two short bolts, with a nut in-between). Pre-spread the rails, from behind the saddle. Once you set the seatpost clamp....you can then remove the spreader.

    That was actually my old F2000SL.....before the Bad Boy. I bought that bike from a Pro XC racer who was suddenly strapped for cash, for $1500. I should have NEVER sold it.....those rare Optimo frames were the BEST.

    Post Your Bad Boy!-20141107_141346.jpg

    Beside frame, fork and brakes I swapped every part of the bicycle.
    Part list:

    - Hope Pro Evo Singlespeed Hub
    - Trialtech cog 14t
    - Sram X0 carbon crank
    - Absolute Black 36t spiderless chainring
    - NC17 trekking pro pedals
    - Thomson masterpiece seatpost
    - Thomson Elite X4 stem
    - Thomson X Country carbon bar
    - Thomson seatclamp
    - Oury grips
    - Dirty Zero team all black seat (by San Marco)
    - H Plus Son Archetype rims with DT Swiss revolution spokes

    Took me longer to install the last parts as I wanted but there where another construction site to work on. And the second one is finished, too.

    Good work. Was going singlespeed a matter of converting the rear hub, or was a dropout kit required?

    Was no matter at all to convert to singlespeed, īcause itīs a 2012 BB8, which came with the Alfine hub. So the frame has an excenter for chain tension. Thatīs why I bought a BB8 at all. Tried to get a BB3, would have been cheaper, but couldnīt get anyone in my size.

    Thanks, that works.

    And here is BB0 with some new gadgets:
    - mud guards (sks bluemels)
    - saddle (brooks flyer special)
    - bags ( frost river: panniers, trail trunk)

    Nice! I like the vintage contrast you've added to the slick BB0 with the saddle and panniers. Which rear rack did you choose?

    well... it took me a while to pick a rear rack - I was checking online stores one after another and finally after about a week I went to a local store and took the first one I was offered
    So, that's probably some kind of "no name" brand but I was able to attach it quite quickly and without any problems.
    Yes, the saddle gives that special look to the bike but it's heavy (890gr). And if you are a person who likes to keep its bike light it's not the way to go

    Thanks for the advice. I'm not really into keeping my BB0 as light as possible, used to have a Brooks saddle with springs on one of my previous bikes as well and I loved it (allthough those springs could start squeeking as well when too dry), but I want to see first how the stock saddle on my BB0 will do after it has been used for a while. (For now: it still hurts ;-))

    The squeek in my front wheel stopped by itself after a while, btw.

    Yesterday night, I think, I woke everybody up in the neighborhood when that saddle's springs started squeaking.

    and that's why I swapped it

    so it may come back by itself after a while - that's just a joke , glad you don't have to worry about that anymore.

    BB Alfine 8 2014

    Hi guys and gals! I am very glad to find this foro. In a few days, I am going to introduce you to my treasure. BB alfine 8 2014. I had a doubt between BB alfine 8 2014 and BB 1 2015. Both are quite similar so I have decided to buy the Alfine 8 because is a less expensive than the BB 1. See you soon!

    "Thanks for answer. I have another question. Why in some models BB Ultra cable routing are inside frame and others outside? In my bike, the cables routing are on the outside."
    They answered to me...
    "The only model year with internal cable routing was 2007/2008.
    Cannondale changed back to the external cable routing as it was requested by customers. Cables are much easier and faster to replace if they run along the frame and not through it."

    Whether you believe in it? In my opinion running cables inside is more expensive for them, I do not believe that more people like running cables on the outside.
    Sorry for off topic
    You are right. It is a shame that a bike like BB Alfine doesn't have internal cable.

    Hi Guys.
    Here is my BB I just bought it

    Finally I decided to buy the bad boy 0 and I am certainly glad with my decision. As I said in previous post, the only complaint I have is about the external cables. This bike with external cables is like Christ with guns. It is a pity. In spite of that the bike looks very nice.

    Most my friends who are mechanics prefer external cables, I am also of that camp.

    Anyone knows what's the headshok fatty's axle 2 crown distance is?
    And rake?
    I always drive it with the suspension locked, so I think it's time for a rigid fork...

    My Badboy (ish)

    i was looking for a SS hybrid for my commuter , hoping to find a Badboy but sadly , no SS Badboy around here from C'Dale.
    Good news is they have a Trail SS (Hybrid)




    Updated the hubs and brake with Hope's , the crank with SRAM 180 and a carbon flat 550mm bar.
    Duct taped it for a theft proof look
    Probably gonna end up with a Rohloff soon enough.

    I like the bike. The front end is heavy though....

    So here's the pic of my Badboy-ized Trail SS before and after.

    Did you remove the disc brake caliper? You'll need to do that so that you can take the wheel off the axle.
