    My F4000 SL

    Recently started to get back into MTBing, so bought a 2nd hand Rush to match the Hard tail, the Rush is so plush, not sure if the HT will get much use, either way I haven't got an excuse not to train now..

    Not exactly a F series

    Well I guess it's my own version of a F series. More like a highly modified m500.


    1997 Cannondale m500 RST 100mm Omega SL fork, with a Profile Design 1 inch threaded to 1 1/8 threadless converter, Deore lx ( new style) front and Sram X9 rear derailleur, Deore m510 hollowtech I crank square taper, UN 73 Bottom bracket, Sram X9 8 speed shifters, pg 850 Sram cassette 11-32, pc 68 8 sp chain, avid single digit 7 brakes with koolstop salmon pads with speed dial 7 levers with viewport windows, Jagwire Ripchord brake and deraileur cable systems, m520 shimano pedals (summer), Nashbar cruiser platforms (winter), WTB speed V comp saddle. Sun Ryno Lite wheels with Deore LX m570 hubs with IRC 2.25 Trailbear tires (spring,summer,and fall) and Nokian extreme 294 Studded Tires for the winter. And last but not least a QR 25 Turbo Cat lighting system.

    Updated SS F1000

    I just came back from work... Seems that winter that took so long to start doesn't want to go away...





    What's new? 5 pounds of wet snow, 10 pounds of chain around the seatpost to lock it and I now have a DIY lockout: to lock it, I simply have to leave the bike a whole winter outside, works great!

    Here's a photo of my old F1000 frame. Unfortunately I hit a tree pretty hard on 25th April and well... this was the result. The top tube has a bow in it too, but you cant really see it in this photo..
    I have a new F1 frame now and love it!!

    Here is my brand new, not-even-a-day-old, Caffeine 4SL. It doesn't say 'F' on it anywhere, but I presume the Caffeine frame is in with the other 'F' hardtails!

    I am over the moon, this thing is sweet! Finally a C/dale again, after 12 years of rubbish scrapheap bikes. Suddenly, the hills around here don't feel so steep anymore! Now all I need to do is get me into enough shape to compliment this bike

    F400 with upgrades

    This is my F400. It's actually the womens version that my local bike shop had fitted with mens parts. I tried it against the mens version and actually prefered the geometry on this one. (I love the colour too).

    Changes are Louise BAT 180 mm front and rear, XT wheel set, 959 pedals, X0 shifters and more to come.

    My new bike, arrived today!

    He drives really great, the big difference between this one and my old F1000 is the lighter steering of the 4 SL. I've changed the heavy SRAM PG-950 cassette with a lighter Shimano XT and the crankbrothers pedals are changed with a pair of PD-M540 SPD Shimano's.

    Some Pics...

    My newly built Caffeine

    Hi guys,

    I've just build my new « winter bike » -- a Cannondale Caffeine frame with parts from my former HT (RM Blizzard). The set-up is really thought out for the winter, so it only has one ring (32T) and 8 speeds in the back. I've been testing it on some of my favorite trails and this bike is pretty awesome -- fast, agile, light -- a real toy that changes lines with a flick of the wrist. Love it !

    Specs :

    Frame : Cannondale Caffeine M
    Stem : FSA XC 150
    H/Bar : Profile Solar RS carbon
    Seatpost : Thomson Elite Setback
    Headset : FSA Orbit XTreme
    Crankset : Shimano XT
    Chainguide : modified DMR Chain Reactor Elite
    Brakes : Avid Juicy Five
    Shifter/rear derailleur : XT 8-speed/XTR
    Wheelset : Mavic XC717 rims/DT Supercomp spokes with aluminum nipples/WTB Laserdisc Lite (front hub)/DT 240S (rear hub)

    Weight : ~ 24 lb

    Little update.
    The seatpost has changed, now I've got a 400 mm seatpost, it's a Pro PLT.
    The saddle is a BBB BSD-08, this one is a lot slimmer than the 'fat' Fizik saddle.
    The yellow stem is the one of my F1000, my dealer ordered one with the right dimensions. In the mean while I have to do it with this one.
    Look also at the little decals from 'Mavic' on the fork.

    Is the F7 a real Cannondale?

    No offense meant but is the F7 a real Cannondale?

    It appears to still have fish scale welds where all Cannondales I have seen are smoothed. Even the most budget versions. Also the headtube is standard size.

    I thought a Cannondale mtb frame was normally defined by smooth welds and headshok sized head tube regardless of what fork was sold with the bike.

    p.s. Current website only has mtb's down to F5 as the cheapest model.

    Yep, It's an 08' bike, just made at their asian plant. Still a cannondale, still a cannondale warranty. Currently their entry model at 380.00

    OK cool F7

    Congrats, glad to hear it's an official product. I hate to hear of people being scammed.

    p.s. That colour and white edges graphics make for one cool colour scheme.

    A few modifications.
    Another (shorter) red painted stem, a BBB saddle, a Pro PLT saddlestem and I've shortened the bar-ends. Right now, the sitpostion is perfect for me.

    This is a small clip of me in action on the Cannondale: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAzbXZaDTY8




    Here together with the F1000, but that one has been sold yesterday.

    Oldie, but I can't find a good reason to part with it. After sitting up for almost 3 years while I got on with other things in life, I'm back riding my 1998 F2000 harder than I ever did before. (Has been an instrumental part in dropping 30 lbs since I got back on it in april 07.)

    This was after a ride on a slightly damp XC trail yesterday. The Drivetrain is still the original XT/XTR, with a brand new XT 8speed cogset, HG93 chain, and Raceface Team Rings. I just dumped the 70mm Fatty SL & put the RockShox Revelation 426 on, Cane Creek Shorty XC headset, full Raceface Deus cockpit and Avid BB7 front disc, Hugi/Mavic 717 front wheel. Unfortunately it doesn't have rear Disc mounts. In the background is the wife's 98 F400 & sneaking into the frame is my 95 M800 Beast of the East pseudo-singlespeed.

    My new F3

    so this color is so killer. In the catalog it just looked blue, but there is this amazing sparkle with a black "sunburst" thing that fades from the top tube to the bottom tube. When viewed from the sides, it just looks royal blue. Beautiful! I got the last one, and it was on sale- 07' blowout! J

    My Girlfriends Caffeine

    Just built my girl a bike so we can start riding together. It is a mish mash of some high, mid and low end parts based on color coordination. I bet you can't guess what my theme was

    It's a caffeine so the theme must be "latté"

    Sharp looking bike.

    Did you buy it as a frameset or as a whole bike then switch out the parts?

    Reason I'm asking is because I need a new frame and my local shop is dragging their feet ordering me one. Wondering also if the 2008 framesets are out, which I guess they are.

    Here is my F3, clean and dirty.










    This bike has been a rock so far. Very fast and responsive. Only upgrades so far are the seat and pedals but the cranks, bars, seatpost, and brakes will be next.

    I have the same bike as you, even entry level stock set up the handling is excellent++.

    Color and price are even better than 08' model.

    But the rear part of bike is heavier than I expected. Any idea to have to most cost effieient way to cut down the weight like spend 100bucks?

    the rear of the bike? What make you think it is to heavy - just the way it feels when you lift it, or something having to do with the handling?

    it is the feeling when lifting the seatpost, if have some replacement by lighter part in low cost I will consider I believe the bike can go much lighter and faster as carbon does with foundaton of light caffeine frame

    Yeah, I agree. It could be a pound or 2 less easily. I think the best places to start for weight would be the wheels, crank and cassette. But wheels would be pricey. For cost reasons an XT cassette would be a good upgrade and maybe better cranks and brakes. There are much lighter and stronger brakes out there for not too much money. But the bike is still killer right out of the box!!

    Correct.

    They suck on the road, especially when wet. They are decent on trail.

    Will replace when somewhat worn, which is quite close by now.

    ... and if we just ... Custom '07 F29- My first build!

    I just finished my first custom build, based on a large 2007 F29 frame. I picked up what I could used off eBay and specced the rest from the good online deals and ended up with this beauty. I wanted to keep it real clean so I stayed with just black, silver, and red- to my surprise, it came out looking even sexier than I'd imagined! Quick rundown: Lefty Speed-Bonded DLR 2 fork, XTR M960 cranks (refinished with custom ceramic coating, Enduro bearings, and WickWerks chainrings), dangerboy pedals (check out those pins!), '08 BB7 disks w/ matching SD7 levers, stock WTB Dual Duty rims with Exiwolf tires, Thomson, Rocket V, X.9 rear, XTR front, X.0 twisters, 991 cassette and chain, FSA bars, Cane Creek Ergo II bar-ends, and Enduro 8 computer.

    The thing runs smooth and fast! My first ride, I pinned it 46mph down a bomber hill near my house- no wobbles or shakes! Finally a bike my size- needless to say, I'm in love!

    Hi,
    I think the most dramatic way to loose weight on this baby is to upgrade wheels+cassette+tyres. This is of course not the cheapest way but you will actually feel the difference.
    SLRs are pretty expensive (you actually pay quite a lot for the brand + the looks) but any DTswiss 240 / 4.1d setup or equivalent with proper light xc tyres and latex tubes will get you an equivalent result.

    Update on mine: I added a pair of Bontrager Race Lite Disc wheels I had laying around, got some BB5 disc brakes for cheap... It's now ready to transport me all through winter. Sorry for the bad picture...

    Is it workable to get down my target wt by having following upgrade on F3?
    1. crossride wheel set
    2. thomson/easton light/carbon seat post
    both cost me around USD 200 and easy to afford

    Carbon seatpost: you will not gain a lot (in weight) but comfort might be improved
    Mavic Crossride: I would rather advise you to wait until you save enough and are able to buy (have you condidered second-hand?) a proper xc wheelset. Crossrides are still fairly heavy (1920g as per Mavic's site), yet fairly good for the money.
    To give you an idea, a pair of HopePro2 Hubs/DT swiss Spokes/Mavic 819 (tubeless) can be found at around 350 euros new, or around 250 euros (USD 350) for second-hand ones. That is above your budget (right now) but with these, you get top-notch wheels that are as well easy to maintain. You can also bump into some Spinergy Xyclone for around USD350 on eBay.
    My advice: going for a mid-range wheelset might get you happy in the short term, but you will however feel the need for an extra upgrade in the medium to long term. I think waiting a bit and investing a bit more for some proper high-end wheels is probably the right choice for a Caffeine frame.

    Here's my 00' F2000 SX that I just got. I purchased it from a guy that pretty much bought it for the brand, and then left it in his garage for the last 7 1/2 years.

    It needs some major updating such as the wheels and rotors, which are still the old 4 bolt design. I can't toss the horrendous CODA hydro brakes until I get the wheels/rotors swapped out. But for now I've thrown in new tires, seat, straight handle bars and a complete tune up/restore, which took me about 10 hrs in order to get her into running condition again.

    I hate you guys! This thread brought back memories of my 2002 F800 matte black bbq I sold less than a year after I bought it. Now I'm going to have to upgrade to a new Cannondale. I'll convert my 96' M200 to a Baby Bad Boy for fun.

    Crank looks like an older Race Face carbon road crank - square-taper style. Notice it's only got a double chainring setup.
