    Thanks for your answer Sylvia

    Actually my picture only shows what happens after it came off. There is a spring ring on the lower part as well. I double checked everytime if the boot sits on the right spot and held by the spring ring well.
    Funny thing is that even dealers wouldnt give me an answer why it keeps coming off. Sort of frustrating..

    Im just wondering if theres any problem with the shock itself. The damper or rubber seals in there might have something to do with this? Cuz it looks like when it does piston work, the air inside the boot pushes the lower part out.

    Im thinking about rebuilding the shock by Cannondale to see if it solves the problem because i dont think this is supposed to happen no matter how hard i push the shock during my riding.

    Here's a pic of my headshok, so you can see how it's supposed to look (I have NO idea why my pic is turned 90 degrees and I can't fix it. Right side is the lower part):

    @Sylvia:
    Found some spacers so far?
    I could get 2 5mm spacers from my local dealer, if you still need them. But can´t manage to get them before tuesday. So if you still need them and can wait a few more days I´ll get them for you.

    @SJS.666: I just received reply from the German shop where I bought my BB. They also have the spacers, so I think I'll be fine. If this doesn't work out I'll send you a PB to let you know. Thanks so much for your help.

    Will a rigid solo lefty fork stand up to singletrack/cross country mountainbiking? Has anyone done it? I'm thinking whether a change of tyres would be sufficient to make the bad boy a somewhat capable off road machine or if I should change the fork too.

    Wow this is awsome and stylish and everything the new bad boy should be! Please I'd like to know how you made the grey parts? Are they stickers? And how did you design them? I mean how did your cut them on the exact dimensions to fit so perfectly to the frame...Forgive my ignorance but i have no idea about this...Did you go in a shop that they do wrapping?

    Anyone ever clean/wash their BB? I had a great time over the weekend with the BB1 and now looking to give it a good spray down. Besides taking off the leather saddle and handles (2014 BB1), anything else I need to watch out for when washing the bike.
    Im a total noob here, but I'll be using car wash and a microfiber mitt. Air pressure to dry. Thx

    Nice wheels Adom!

    Meanwhile I got myself the Reverse S-Trail 70mm Cannondale stem and an Easton EC90 SL Low Rise carbon handlebar.

    I wasn't too happy about the combination of colours and fonts in my new cockpit (high gloss stem with aluminum accents, silk-matte greyish handebar, all kinds of type and colour fonts etc.), it looks a bit crowdy on my matte black BB0 as visible on the two pics below:

    Post Your Bad Boy!-img_3389.jpg

    Post Your Bad Boy!-img_3390.jpg

    So I had the stem entirely powder coated in matte black.

    The carbon handlebar unfortunately could not be powder coated because it may not stand the heat in the oven, so either I'll leave it like this or I need to think of another way to get it all matte black in a decent way.

    Got some black bolts and the 1,56" spacer on the way and will post some pics as soon as I have it all in place.

    I must say that looks really good (I'd get rid of these white spots on the steam).
    Could you post one more picture showing a little bit more of a bike and that handlebar?

    Here you go:

    Post Your Bad Boy!-img_3426.jpg

    The stem is now competely matte black:

    Post Your Bad Boy!-img_3427.jpg

    I still don’t like the red accent on my handlebar, because I want the accent on my bike to be the copper of the front logo, seatpost clamp and saddle rivets. Copper does not match with red. I can hide the red pretty good however if I put my new front light over it (Knog Blinder 1), so maybe I won’t paint the handlebar after all, haven’t decided yet and will wait for the spacer and black bolts to arrive first.

    Post Your Bad Boy!-img_3433.jpg

    Also I got myself a Cannondale Alloy Side Cage waterbottle cage and new pedals: Xpedo Freestyle Traverse XFC-05AC, wich together with the carbon handlebar spares me some of the weight that I gained by changing the saddle and adding the lock:

    My 2014 Bad Boy 0. Somewhat stealthyfied.
    Flipped over the bar/stem combo, found a blackish seat clamp, put on Schwalbe Marathon supreme tyres and swapped the Original sadlle for a Selle San Marco Regal.
    Peeled off the hideous transfers on the rims.

    What are the current best all round city commuter tyres?

    The stock tyres on the bb are slicks and very dangerous in the wet.

    Quite reassuring to see how obsessed people are about details like the colours of logos, it makes me feel like less of a weird nerd

    Here's mine as it stands, carbon handlebar and seatpost, red anodised grip clamps and seatpost collar. Also changed the wire bead Kojaks to folding ones that I had, shedding close to 100 grams a wheel! On the to do list are a different stem, red anodised c-clips for the brake hoses and gear cable and possibly a carbon saddle and different pedals.

    longest stems available for - Si Urban OPI Stem/Handlebar on my Bad Boy 1?

    Can someone please let me know what is longest stem available for Si Urban OPI Stem/Handlebar on my Bad Boy 1?
    Can you please also include online links where are get 1.56" stems?
    thanks, R

    Only can think of Hope and Reverse if you want something else then the Cannondale stem.

    From the brands that SJS.666 mentioned (and I did not find any current other brands in Europe), the longest 1.56" stem is the Cannondale XC3 Headshok + Lefty Stem, 140mm, +/- 5 degrees.

    I am confident you will find a decent shop for that one yourself. It's not that difficult.

    @sylvia
    nice work (on the commuter side)!!!
    Total black is what your bars need.

    @piemel
    bike looks super cool...a shorter and neg rise stem and some lightweight pedals would be perfect.
    IMO don't mess with red...a white frame and all the rest black are enough for the bike's concept.

    @Adom
    A wide profile rim would look pretty aggressive on your bike!!!
    But rims are heavy...
    Braking surface is unnecessary when using disc brakes, too


    My 35/55 profile carbon rims are on their way...

    some of us is just going for the look. doesn't really matter if you have everything in carbon when the frame itself weights so much.

    I don't see any problem in combining good looks with weight loss. Every 500gr less is still 500gr less. And you may want to scroll back through this topic to see how much weight some of the BB-weightweenies did loose, I think it's quite impressive.

    Thanks for the feedback, the stem is only 80/90mm long but I do agree about the rise. Ideally I'd have a zero rise stem and slam it but it'd end up way too low. Imo the red touches it has now add an interesting twist, plain black and white like how it was was too boring. I won't be adding any more red details though.

    About the weight saving issue, to me it's really not a big deal. Having ridden virtually nothing but fixed for the past 5 years, the bad boy is never going to feel light to me when lifting it. It is every bit as fast as my other bikes though and that's what it's all about in the end isn't it.

    I agree...if we dont like what we see, we don't ride it.

    A large frame weights 1680gr...which is light for an alu frame.
    Frame with headshok:3193gr
    Post Your Bad Boy!-069-2-.jpg

    lots of weight can be saved...stock seatpost, saddle, wheels and tires weight tonnes

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    Test-ride with Fizik Kurve Bull saddle. (I absolutely love it, my seatbones have survived, so I will move the heavy Brooks saddle to my beach cruiser):

    Post Your Bad Boy!-img_3473.jpg

    Finally got the 1.56” spacers and I have replaced all the silver-coloured metal bolts that came with the stem by black titanium bolts:

    @Sylvia, my wife is loving her Brook Saddle (rubber one) with the cut out. Ya it's a bit heavy, but she also didn't mind the Speedneedle Marathon which is wider than the regular one. The bibs are a huge factor in seat comfort with carbon saddles and my Tune is not so comfy if I am not in padded shorts, and the better the padding the better the saddle is.

    Currently my BB is at 9.4Kg and I can't see loosing my more. Maybe a bit on a seat post but with out changing front forks there won't be much further to go and think hitting under 8Kg a long shot. If I add a lefty (just an idea) it will likely be back closer to 10kg.

    I also looked at your wife's saddle, I think it's the Brooks Cambium C15 Carved, but I found it not wide enough. The Fizik Kurve is 6cm wider and fits me better. What I like about this particular saddle, is the kevlar that is used where the seatbones are. It really relieves those areas and I can ride just fine without padded shorts:

    That looks well constructed. Funny thing about Fizik is basically it is Selle company who started once Brook patent on their saddle ran out. Or something like that. I think if I ever get a full MTB I would consider Fizik again.

    More shops should have display models for people to test as it really is hit and miss and you can't tell by forums as everyone is different.

    The new saddle looks heaps better, I hate the look of a brooks on almost any type of bike. I'm currently contemplating getting an unpadded carbon SMP saddle. I ride in casual clothes so no bibs, I'm hoping the sort of anatomical shape of the SMP will reduce the need for padding? Might just be wishful thinking though. Maybe I'll pull the trigger and find out.

    Funny, I did not know that.
    I read that previous models of the Fizik Kurve line had some problems, they could tear. This problem was solved with the 2015 models.

    I totally agree. My seatbones are always the first to hurt because I don't have a lot of fat to cover them, also my tail bone has been broken twice during childhood and is giving me problems ever since. And I have severe lower back problems since I fell from a horse about a year ago (and the horse fell on top of me, a 650kg Friesian horse...), so I absolutely need to test a saddle before I buy it. I always explain to the dealer why, and if they don't let me test a saddle on my own bike for at least a day, I immediately move on to the next dealer.

    It is a trade-off in designs. You want support and flex in the correct areas. My speed needle I could ride to work and back for about 6Km with no pads and same with the new one I am using. I would not recommend longer rides, but in all honesty it was more comfy than my original Fiz that came with the bike which had more padding.

    Brooks look good on vintage type dutch bikes and some vintage racers but the one my wife has fits this BB.

    On a side note my Speedneedle pretty much had for lunch all my shorts and pants from the way it rubs on the sides. Only bibs I have that survived are my Gores.

    I hear you on dealers, and also understand their position as manufacturers are not really helpful in demo models. Lucky I have a great shop here bikes24.com who are really great with a lot of experienced riders. Still for woman it is even harder in the biking world.

    My problem is the opposite where I have too much weight to carry and my fat ass still does not give enough padding j/k. Usually for me it is I carry far too much in my backpack to work and back and then sneak a ride after work with clothes, shoes, water, etc. At least I am not carrying 3 litres of milk, couple of cans and groceries anymore (got wiser)

    Fizik is supposed to be among the best saddle manufactures.
    I am sure you ll enjoy it.
    Did you get the integrated light?
    A fizik stealth seatpost should be next IMO

    If that is bike24.com (so without the "s"), then I purchased my carbon handlebar there, for a really good price because it was the 2014 model. It's a shame I cannot visit them, it's too far.

    Thanks!

    No I did not get the integrated light yet. I only recently bought the Knog rear light and I'll keep on using that one for the time beiing.

    And owwww yess, during my Fizik saddle research I found their seatposts as well, especially the Cyrano Seatpost 00. I could also really use the 25mm setback, but that seatpost is way too expensive for now, maybe later.

    @Sylvia:
    Looking at your bicycle, and seeing your setting of the seat (height and setback), I wonder why you didn´t bought a medium one. Would fit much better imo. I don´t think the height of my seat is a big difference to mine on a medium frame. The setback just looks horrible. You should definitly change the seatpost.

    You can hardly say that there's too much seatpost showing when the saddle and handlebars are level. My saddle is way higher than my handlebars and I defintely don't need a larger size.

    My body height is 1,64cm (5'4.5"). Compared to most people (especially compared to men and BB is a men's bike model), I have long legs and a short upper body. And then there are my problematic butt and lower back.

    I could probably have tweaked a size M to my personal needs as well, but when fitting the bikes the distance between the saddle and handlebar of size M was too big. The size S fitted better and I prefer the slightly more forward motion that my legs have to make with the setback.

    And yes: next step will be another seatpost, but I'll need so get myself some money for that first, because my taste is very expensive ;-)

    When I got my badboy the combination of a long (well too long for me) stem and setback seatpost made me feel stretched out and position me too far behind the bottom bracket so I got a shorter stem and an inline seatpost. Seems like you have the opposite problem, if you feel too cramped on the bike would a longer stem be a solution? If you're interested you can have the Cannondale C3 setback seatpost that came off my badboy (you're in NL right or did I make that up?).

    Did this myself. Inline seatpost and 95mm stem. But completely changed from flatbar to dropbar now. I have to make actual pics as my badboy looks quiete different then the last pics I uploaded. If money does not matter too much i would go with a syntace p6 hiflex carbon seatpost. One of the best in my opinion.

    Yes, I'm in NL. My current stem lenght is fine, I like the way my BB steers with it. Also my back (and SI joint) somehow prefers sitting behind the bottom bracket the way it is now, I have no idea why but in that position it doesn't hurt.

    Thanks for your offer about the C3 setback seatpost. But if I take it, it may only be for the period that I don't have the money to buy a carbon seatpost, so maybe it's better if you keep it yourself or sell it for a really good price then. (But if you don't use nor sell it, I'll be very happy to use it. Please send me a PB if you do. Thanks.)
