    Get some XTR cranks, Egg Beater Ti's, and foam grips you'll be hitting sub 20lbs

    So, how did you end up sorting out the rear brake? I'd love to know.

    And how did you strip the frame? If I wanted to do that, who would I be looking for to do that?

    Just the rear brake to sort out.

    First solution I tried the A2Z disc adapter, but it didn't suit the rear dropouts on the Cannondale. So I ordered the Brake Therapy solution, but it's currently in the post so I'll know for sure this week with the rear brake. If it works I'll modify the existing v-brake cable guides on the frame to take the hydraulic cable.

    It's a simple enough job, just a bit slow and messy. The neat thing with aluminium is that is polishes up to a chrome like finish quite easily. I stripped the paint with a normal paint stripped with takes it down to the bare aluminium, which is a pretty flat finish. Then uses a very fine wet/dry sand paper on the frame to remove major buff marks. After that it's just polishing the frame with a polishing compound.

    They're reproduction decals. I got them off ebay, for 10 ($20), for 4 x downtube stickers, 2 x toptube stickers, 1 x headbadge, 1 x seat stay badge, 2 x seat tube badge. I also got the Lefty replacement decal from the same guy.

    I mucked up putting on the first set of downtube stickers, so having 4 was a blessing.

    The headtube and seat tube badge came in white with a fine black outline, but they sort of get lost against the aluminium, so I'll replace those with plain black later on.

    Alright guys, help me out here. I picked this up semi-recently, intended for the girlfriend to ride it, but she and I broke up, so i got myself a new Cannondale to ride, since my old Paramount frame didnt fit me very well.

    Anyway, its mostly Original now. I got it 100% original. And still have all the original parts, but i think im gonna build it up a bit to be a nice solid hardtail.

    Since i've gotten it, i've swapped over this stuff from my other bike:
    LX Rear Derailleur
    LX Rear Hub
    LX Rear Cassette
    XTR SPD Pedals

    So far it weighs around 25.2lbs. Hoping to get it under 25 with the newer lighter parts.

    I have some decent plans for it, i'll post up after the pics. Someone help me out, what year this is. (im thinking 98 or 99)

    So heres my Cannondale F500:












    So right now i'm torn between to modification paths. I dont want to go too overboard with this bike because of lack of funds, but here are my two options:

    1) Keep it an 8-speed, and get a bunch of older USED XT an XTR parts. F&R derailleurs, shifters etc..

    or

    2) Convert to a 9-speed and get LX shifters, NEW XT cassette, new XT chain, newer XT or XTR rear derailleur, newer XT front derailleur. etc..

    It's a 98 according to vintagecannondale.com

    Any current rear derailleur will work whether you run 8 speed or 9 - the derailleurs don't matter. Older Ders that were 8sp can usually swing enough to work on a 9sp cassette, and current 9sp ders can be easily adjusted for the 8sp range. Actually an 8sp cassette is virtually the same width as 9sp. You can put 9sp cassettes on many of the older 8sp LX/XT/XTR hubs just fine. So to covert to 9sp, you likely only need a cassette, chain, rear shifter, and maybe chainrings.

    Yea, thats what I was planning on doing, but im trying to decide which would be better or more beneficial to me. Whether to get some old XTR 8spd stuff, or convert to a 9-spd stuff, and go with with just newer XT parts, and NEW LX shifters (my buddy has a set available for me cheap)

    I'd go with the new stuff. I have a 98 f2000 and I've gone the "Update the 8sp XT/XTR stuff" route once, and it was hard then. Buy good current parts, and even if you decide to upgrade to a different frame in a coupl eof years, at least you have 2008 components going on a 2010 frame, not 1999 components. Plus you find better deals on the new stuff.

    I agree. Why buy older used parts? You won't be happy in the end and you'll end up spending more money later down the road. Save your money and spend a little extra. There's tonnes of new and good used stuff for on Ebay if you're patient.

    awesome! Thanks guys, thats probably the route im going to go. You have a good point about the new stuff.

    I just didnt know if older XTR stuff would be better than newer XT stuff. I just hope i can get my 9spd cassette to mount on my older LX hub

    Yep, that's a sweet 1998 model, you have there. But, if I were you I would bring it up to modern times, with XT or XTR 9-speed equipment. Old skool XTR(pre-2000) is the BOMB- many parts are still lighter and stronger than 2008 XTR. Get rid of anything CODA on that bike, please. If you really want to shed some weight- get a Mavic X517 wheelset, and go tubeless on the tires, using Stan's sealant and rim strips. If done right- you will be riding a nice vintage Cannondale weighing possibly 22lbs. A 22lb bike can be easily lifted with just two fingers......and the ride is just unbelieveably fast....especially uphill!

    On your model- the cranks, saddle, stem and handlebars. I know the CODA saddle is very uncomfortable. The bars are also heavy too. Finlly, the heavy 170mm cranks can be replaced with newer Shimano 175mm Octalink or Hollowtech cranks and bottom bracket, for increased pedaling torque uphill, and lightness.

    Welp, i broke my rear derailleur today on the trails, so looks like i'll be upgrading that before i hade planned. Im thinking i might give Shimano's new "Shadow" line stuff a go. Im trying to decide between XT and the new SLX line.

    Im also thinking about shaving some weight, and un-needed stuff (for me) and go with a straight 1x9 gear setup. Moving to a single front chain-ring, and a 9spd rear. Probably Sram Cassette and Chain, with the Shadow rear derailleur and LX shifter. Anyone have any experience going to a 1x9 setup? I think i just might make a new thread for it.

    Thanks! I'm currently running Juicy 5's at the moment. Might be upgrading the rotors to Hope Mini's sometime in the near future.

    A 1x9 setup will lighten your bike considerably(like, a quarter pound). Just make sure your fitness level is up to it. Shimano XT is proven, and should work well with your needs. Get a Shimano XT 11-34cassette and KMC chain- they are lighter than the SRAM.

    Yea, i think im in shape enough to do it. I have been paying attention to my riding style, and my gear selections at the trails i ride, and im 90% sure that i could get away with having the single front. Also, it'll be a good training-ish bike.

    Im looking at going with the SRAM cassette and chain just because of price. Although im starting to get more enthralled with "building" this thing up, I really want to try to keep it on a budget. And a SRAM cassette/chain will perform just as good as the XT pieces, just wont be as light. Im not a TOTAL weight weenie :P

    Yep, it turned out better and even more beautiful I expected. So far a commuter, but it is impossible to resist converting it into a real mountain bike as Im gonna have a spare Lefty (the Headshock is rigid). Different from my other bikes, which is good. With the current fork the seat is very forward which I dont mind.

    Poor Man's Bad Boy Ultra

    This is my new commuter. I snagged the frame and fork dirt cheap locally. The rest are spares, 'cept for the Mavic 317 wheelset. I just swapped out my silver X.9 grip shifters and Speed Dial SLs from another bike in favor of black-colored 9.0 grip shifters and Speed Dial 7's, that's why there's extra derailleur cable - haven't re-connected the deraileurs yet.

    I'm 5'10" and the XL frame would normally be too large for me, especially with my seat setback preference, so a 45mm stem was in order instead of the stock 120mm. Since the Furio-X and Caffeine have 1" shorter seat tubes compared to Furio and Optimo, the whole thing fits quite nicely.

    At 28.5 lbs it is heavy. 2.5 of that is the boat anchor Rock Shox Dart 2, and the Furio-X frames are crazy heavy altough ultra stout. About .75lb heavier than a regular Furio and about 1.25 heavier than Caffeine. But as a commuter, that doesn't matter.

    Maybe I'll go for an all-black DLR2 (non-bonded) Lefty. That would really complete the look. Let me know if you have one you want to contribute to my project

    Anybody have any suggestions on removing or toning down the too-white lettering on the BBQ black frame?

    That stark white reflective lettering is there for your protection, at night. Looks like you did a good job, already. A Lefty would be overkill, for a commuter IMHO. If you are gonna spend more on that bike- get a BBQ Headshok DLR 80 instead. It already looks like a Cannondale Bad Boy!

    Thanks, Zacariah.

    Yeah, the Fatty DL or DLR is a better fit for this kind of bike. Either, way, given that I'll be beating this bike with NYC potholes, I think I'll let it be with the lowly DART for now.

    Ergons. Their product line is a bit confusing - they seriously need to simplify it. But the product is great. One work of warning - order small unless you have gigantic hands. The grips run large.

    These are GR2s, which weigh a ton despite the mini bar-ends being magnesium. They also have carbon and carbon with a superlight grip material in the GR2s and other models as well.

    In my opinion, the grip itself is very comfortable and the mini bar-ends have the best position of any I tried.

    Universal Cycle carries their stuff. ( http://www.universalcycles.com/search.php?q=ergon )

    Man, you guys really have some nice bikes! Dino, yours is gorgeous dude!

    Im really bored today (my day off, and im too sick to ride), so here's a few more pics of my bike I'm building. Not too much new.

    SLX Shadow rear derailleur (med cage)
    LX rear hub
    LX Cassette
    XTR Pedals







    Got a bunch of new parts to put on next week though, im converting to an 9sp drivetrain, then eventually in a couple weeks gonna go 1x9:

    SRAM PG970 11-34 cassette
    SRAM PC971 Chain
    Salsa Juego de Fuego grips (yellow)
    08 Shimano LX shifters

    Im almost done with mine close enough to get pics up. Gotta throw a couple more parts on before pics go up.

    So far the mod list is:

    WTB Silverado Saddle
    Shimano XTR pedals
    Shimano LX Hubs
    Shimano SLX Med Cage Rear Derailleur
    Shimano STX Front derailleur (factory spec)
    Shimano STX V-Brakes (factory spec)
    Shimano 08 LX shifters
    SRAM PG970 11-34 cassette
    SRAM PC971 Chain
    Salsa Juego de Fuego grips (yellow)
    SpotBrand 94/32 Bashguard (2x9 for now)
    Avid FR5 Brake Levers
    WTB Velociraptor Rear Tire

    Just pulled a couple links out the chain (for 2x9) and put on all brand new cables and housings on everything. Bike rides so much nicer now!

    Still gotta put on the N-Gear jumpstop and make the switch to 1x9, and also throw on my Shimano LX 570 crankset. I also have an older aluminum stealth handlebar laying around that i cant decide if i should put on or not. Hopefully i'll have a few updated pics to get up soon.

    Still think i may try to get a lighter seat stem, and a new set of lighter better tires. Need to look into what parts to get though.

    here is a better picture of the F1000.
    It's the Sobe team color and pretty rare in my country.



    It's a different size because they are for different seasons.
    In winter I like a longer and stable bike for muddy surface.
    In summer I like it short,agressif and good in corners.

    Pure beauty your car would be a sil80 wouldnt it , MY bro had a 94 black 240 just like that, minus all the silvia stuff of course and it was 5 speed.

    I was actually directing the sylvia/skyline comment at the other guy. He said he had a sylvia/skyline too..

    Back on topic though, does anyone know how I can adjust my pressure in my fork (P-Bone Headshok). I bottomed it out the other day a couple times, and want to know if i can increase pressure in it easily or not.

    Thanks in advance.

    I had a J-spec RHD stock Silvia, with the fender-mount mirrors. I couldn't handle the RHD....so I sold it for a 1997 BMW M3. After I drove the 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo- I quickly sold the M3. The 944T is still faster than 90% of cars today!

    Here is the CarDomain site:

    Remove your front wheel, and there should be an air valve where the fork goes into the head tube, at the bottom.

    I think the P-Bone works with a preload tension screw at the top of the fork under the cap, adjusted with a 4mm allen-key into the hole at the top of the fork. Clockwise for more pre-load and anti-clockwise for less preload.

    New wheels: XT hubs laced to Alexrims, BB7 (my F7 had V's), new tires (actually, the Caballero are pretty good, but I like a little bit more the Panaracers, or at least, I'm giving them a try. Saddle and seatpost. Stem, grips and handlebars.

    Looks like a CAAD4 - right? If the bike ha no evidence of ever having a model designation on it, that was either a warranty replacement frame, or a frameset that was ordered individually, and built up by it's owner.

    It was common for Cannondale to sell framesets back in those days based on the CAAD number - if you ordered a frameset, it didn't come with a model number on it. The warranty-replacement frames were rarely ever exactly what you were replacing - that's one of the challenges of offering lifetime warranties. You can't stock extra frames for every year you produce, so you replace with something that is equivalent to what was warrantied.

    Oh - wait - my bad - I was focusing on the red bike - that's your 2000 model. The ???? is the mango one - either way - my above comments are still valid about it either being a warranty frameset, or a bike that was built from frame-up.

    I do own a 99 model F400 that is that same color and sticker combo - but the F400 didn't have a Headshok in that model year. If we knew parts pick it might be easier to narrow down.

    Note the lack of F designation. It's a 2007 F3 frame that I got off of ebay. the guy had a warranty replacement and decided to sell it instead of building it. Got it for $150. love it!

    more shots here

    Not the best pics, but its all I could get in my basement as its snowing/icing here at the moment. The bike is a work in progress. Need a new fork for example...

    Nice score man! I have to say that is a sweet paint job. I looked at one in that color when I got mine but the guy wanted $400. I am very happy with the blue on mine. Now lets see it build up!
