    1999 F1000

    Here is my 99 F1000 the last time I used it at Kingdom Trails, VT last summer. It has a weird build because it was bought in 98, before the 9-speed Shimano parts were available. SRAM Plasma 9-speed shifters with a Ultegra 12-27 road cassette instead of XT stuff.

    It's even nicer when we see it.
    Is that an old saddle or an old-school looking recent saddle?

    Does this count? It's my '05 Bad Boy Ultra with some drivetrain mods. 26 / 36 in the front and a touring cassette in the rear. I basically grabbed my cranks off my DH and tossed em on as it's so wet here in the north east I won't be riding that bike till august Anyway, this is my commuter. It's a bad ass bike.

    That bike is incredibly nice Ron! Are the decals glowing from the flash?

    I think I'm going to convert my F1000 to an urban commuter this summer, I may just go with a single chainring tough, I'm used to ride my BMX around town. I just wish my bike looked like that!

    Yeah they are black reflective so you don't really see them until you hit the bike with some light. Very stealth, but works great for commuting and reflecting car headlights. I can't wait to start crusing into work on it.

    I was gonna go for a single chainring as well, but there are some fairly steep hills around here. I also wanted to be able to put my mountain wheels on it and hit the woods from time to time so I felt 2 x 9 was better than 1 x 9 for that kind of riding.

    thanks for the compliment guys, but what I don't understand is that if it's an optimo frame or a furio since it's stated in the website that it's a furio frame but says optimo on the seat tube. hmmmm weird.

    Optimo frames have an obviously different rear end, thinner seatstays...

    yeah I read it somewhere in this forum that furio frames got a different rear than an optimo. And it seems like mine's not the only one I've seen with a wrong decal(seen it on an F1000), but I'm not complainin...

    I'll Play

    This is my 2004 Optimo. I raced it all last year, and plan on doing the same this year. Great bike, I'm still working on getting fit enough to take it to it's limits.

    Sorry for the crap pictures..

    ...my camera is CHEAP. Here is my 2003 F600; some of the changes include the Lefty DLR, IRC Mythos tires, a cheap (but I like it!) alloy riser bar, Selle Italia Pro-Link saddle, and I added a Roll-a-ma-jig to smooth out the shifting. Adding the Lefty was like getting a new bike! It tracks beautifully. There were no problems in using the stock Avid mechanical disc brakes, either. I plan on changing the seatpost (I expected more from a Ritchey product) and I have yet to make up my mind on new pedals.

    I want to thank "fastasaturtle" for all of his work on my bike; not only is he a great wrench, but he's a patient teacher as well (even if he rides an Ellsworth ). This is the last I will speak kindly of him...

    ... and if we just ... custom paint job

    i saw your custom painted f series cannondale, that looks nice and shiny. I'm wanting to paint my own frame, what did it cost you, what were the processes, etc. I'd appreciate it if you could get back to me.

    thanks,

    I'm more than a bit surprised that the battleship-liveried F600 from this year's collection isn't more popular. Would love to see pictures of one outside of the catalog. I love that livery so much that I'd be happy to opt for another gearie if I had the cash.

    I think both decals are correct. I have a '04 SL2000 with Optimo tubing (and decal) with the thinner, hourglass "Power Supply" seat stays and an '04 1FG with the Optimo tubing and decal but the stiffer, Furio "Dual Assault"rear triangle.

    My understanding is they both utilize Optimo tubing on the main frame, which explains the decals...but the question would be does the Furio rear triangle used on the 1000 and up models with the Optimo main frame use different, non-Optimo tubing? I do think below the 800 models are not Optimo tubing at all, and accordingly lack the Optimo sticker.

    Anyone know for certain?

    Upset F300.

    I took a 12.5 mile ride for the first time on this bike and it was wonderful............Until.......The right side pedal sheared out of the crank arm!!! anyone else ever heard of that happening on the true active crank set? I was just crusing along the all of a sudden my pedal felt loose. Then I tried to clear an intersection and wham! The pedal is lying in the road. So needless to say the bike is a day old and going to the shop tomarrow! What a bummer huh?

    THANKS! I scored it when working for a bike shop last year it was just sitting there collecting dust. Got it at cost too! It's not custom paint either, and it bolted right up to the stock BB didn't even have to mess with chain or derailliers (SP)

    Here is a close up.

    f600 as psuedo bad boy ultra

    i posted this bike in this thread previously in its MTB mode. however had some hybrid road rims laced to mountain disc hubs to have a psuedo bad boy ultra. All black 700 velocity rims on shimano deore disc hubs (cheapos) with 25mm contis and a sram road cassette. fantastic wheels - thanks to a certain cycle smith from mendon. super fast - sweet ride and takes about 1 second to convert back to MTB mode.

    Very cool elgordo! I'm in the process of converting my F1000 to an urban single speed for commuting duties, I'll post pictures when it's finished but I don't think it's gonna look as good as yours tough.

I think the big 700 road wheel make the bike look strange yet cool. and the wheels are complete frankensteins. road cassettes, rims, tires and mountain hubs and discs. i noticed your thread about converting your F1000 to a bad boy. turning it into a SS is excellent. please due post pictures when finished. i have an old rigid trek mountain bike that i am itching to convert to SS - please inspire

    Road cassette for BB conversion?

    Very nice BadBoy conversion, elgordo -- and I've been following your conversion process with much interest, too, Dan G. I am also considering getting some 700c's for my F900 (pics a few posts up) -- looking for a bit more speed/less resistance for some distance training -- not to mention that swapping wheels out is much faster than changing tires all the time!

    Elgordo (or anyone, for that matter) -- what is the rationale for using a road cassette on your 700c's? I have a spare set of disc hubs that could be laced to some 700's, and I'm wondering what cassette I should go with. I had planned on using a spare XT 9spd, thinking it would minimize the need for derailleur adjustments when I swap wheelsets. I'm not as concerned with gear ratios as with fast and seamless transitions between setups. What other factors should I consider?

    Many thanks...

    kenpark thanks. as for the cassettes - the original MTN cassette on the F600 is a SRAM PG950 11-34. although the actual Bad Boy Ultra is spec. with a 11-34. i went with a SRAM PG970 11-23 road cassette per the recommendation of the wheel builder. With the 700c and some road tires on asphalt your roll resistance is so low the higher gears on the MTN cassette become useless. Also the road cassette gives you much tighter gear spacing. For me transitioning between setups is a non issue. If the rear derailleur is adjusted properly (again many thanks to my mechanic) switching from a 9sd mtn to a 9sp road shouldnt be an issue. one thing to consider are the hubs. using identical hubs is the ideal situation for disc rotor location. I used similar but not identical hubs so occasionally there is some rub but with the avid mechanicals its a simple adjustment on the caliper and im in good shape. im sure more knowledgeable people will chime in. good luck. the 700c with disc hubs rock.

    I use a ultegra 11-23 cassette on my 700c wheels.
    Much nicer to have a closer spaced gearing on the road to keep the cadence close to where you are most productive and comfortible.
    It can be a drag when the cassette is a 12-34. I always needed more gears inbetween and I kept shifting all the time because I was either spinning too fast, or spinning too slow. The 11-23 feels great!

    On the trails, I use a xt/xtr 12-34 cassette.
    where large gear changes are needed!

    Thanks Fast1000 and elgordo -- I couldn't agree more with the gearing considerations. The large gear spacing is often too pronounced when you're in that road-riding rhythm. It's funny, I started as a roadie, and I recall years ago how difficult it was for me to get used to the larger gear jumps when I transitioned to MTB'ing.

    The main challenge for me will be to nail down the proper rotor/hub spacing on the 700c's so that, as elgordo mentioned, proper brake pad alignment is just a few clicks away when I make the switch. My Rolf Dolomites Discs are of the older vintage and require a wacky setup in order to run right -- shims/washers for both the rotors and calipers. No kidding, it's at least 10mm off without shims. So I definitely will not be using identical hubs...

    Anyway, thanks for all the input. I know this has been a bit off-topic...

    What kind of water bottle cage is that Atomant? It's nice... so is the bike... and the workstand (I have the same).

    My F1000 now took over commuting duties (the BMX don't cut it anymore now that I moved further from the job), it now looks like that:



    I put some cheap platform pedals, took off the front derailleur, shifter and small chainring, the big ring is just there because my bolts are too long to take it off but I haven't got the new chainring, new chain, single cog and chain tensioner to finalize the SS conversion. It will come tough, the drivetrain is so worn out anyway, soon I won't have the choice to change everything.

    Hi Dan Gerous, thanks for the compliments. The bottle cage is made by Cannondale and should be available in any cannondale dealer. Comes in black and silver and you can see it in cannondale's webssite.

    This is my first ever Cannondale, got it used just recently. I had to get one ever since I saw their beautiful frame weld finishes. The Lefty is the stiffest and lightest feeling fork I've ever had. The bike rides so smoove I LOVE IT!!!

    hi, you have great bikes!

    here is mine. It´s a F900sl from 2001. I bought this June from a friend. First i was looking for a bike for max. 500€, but then i fall in love with this.

    The picture is not a good quality, was made with an mobilephone.

    I loved seeing everyone's F-series Cannondales! Here are my own: The red one is an '06 F400 that I've had for only a few months and [therefore] is pretty much stock. The other is an F2000 converted into an SS.

    Added a riser bar -- should have done this years ago. I was always getting a stiff neck during rides. Don't know how much I will be trying it out on the trail since I now have a Full suspension bike, but at least I will use it with my rollers.

    The Optimo rides like my F3k, but I miss the nicely shaped disc mount on the rear. Also I cant understand why they have the hose guide on the bottom of the seatstay!!!!! Anyone know?? BTW, Cannondale has treated me fine for warrantees. However, they were going to give me a Furio til I spoke up and was told the rep was new, wasnt thinking...Soon she's getting lighter wheels and brakes.

    Well, if you got that livery as a complete bike, it was christened the f4000. Same frame in black with the Fatty was the f2000 that year.

    '04 F600 Sobe

    Here's my new bike, I picked up a small locally. Hopefully as I ride it, it wont be too small..
    Also it has BB7's, I thought F600 came with BB5's (or is that on 05's and newer...z)

    Thanks
    I grabbed it even though its a small. I got a good deal locally and even if it proves to be too small I know I can sell it-heck my neighbor is ready to take it!
    It has a 120mm stem and I am 5-9"...The post is inserted below the min. line, so thats ok..I just need to throw it around and see how it feel I guess...

    f900

    this is my trusty truck. its been with me for some time, and i have no idea how many miles it has on it. I've used up 2 or 3 wheelsets, and a few drivetrains. it even lived with me pulling a bob trailer for a year and half while i was going thru my "hobo" phase. still its the foundation of my cycling practice (life) in the collection of bikes.
