    Listen! Roll Call

    Ok we all have the obsession, bug, gift or disease (as my wife calls it) or being Cannondale-philes - so who's the worst of the worst?

    1).How many have you got?
    2).How many have you had?
    3).When did you see the light and changeover?
    4).What number bike was it?
    5). Photos...

    1). 2 which is not bad for New Zealand and me being a poor student (awww!). Coming over in July to get a F4000SL
    2). 3.
    3). 1994.
    4). 3 - had a sub NZD$500 KHS which I broke after a month of racing and then a Diamond Back Apex which got stolen.
    5). I will have to scan them and put them up later

    Hmmm...
    Let's add 'em up:

    1) 2000 (I think) Super-V 1000, upgraded with XTR Der's, shifters & seatpost, original White (forged & CNC'd) cranks, early White Ti hubs (28 hole, radial 15/17g front; 32 hole radial 15/17g / 3-cross, straight 15g rear), Ti BB, Avid Ultimate brakes (early Ultimate-L levers) and other Ti and CNC'd bits.
    Spare wheelset with early Hugi hubs & Specialized S-Works rims (VERY strong).
    All around x-country / everything bike. Many hard miles - Never a problem.

    2) 1990 M1000 hardtail with Pepperoni fork (1 1/4" aluminum steer-tube); Chris King headset, Synchros Ti BB & seatpost, Syncros stem, Synchros hubs, all SunTour XC-Pro Der's / shifters (7-speed) & brakes/levers.
    Previously my bike messenger bike - Now commuter & city/downtown thrasher.
    MANY thousands of miles - Absolutely BOMBPROOF.
    This once proud urban warrior will wind up as my baby-trailer tow-bike!

    3) 1990 Road road/race bike (forget the model) - All Ultegra, etc

    4) 1986 or 87 (I think) Touring road bike (also forget the model) - All SunTour Superbe (triple crank).

    5) (Wife's bike) - 1998 (I think) M600 hardtail, upgraded to full XT, with Manitou fork, C-Dale suspension seatpost & some Ti bits.
    Purchased as frame only - Assembled with some of my leftover parts.

    6) Bianchi road bike with full Campy.
    *OK, this one doesn't count, but as long as I was listing all of my bikes...(!)

    I previously had a 1984 (I think) C-Dale MTB (the 2nd year they made MTB's), and a 1987 (I think) C-dale full suspension bike (the 1st year they made full susp).
    I also had a couple of early Super-V's (one was a lemon, the other I thrashed until I upgraded and traded it in on the current Super-V.

    So, that puts me at 5 C-Dales currently, and a total of 9 lifetime.

    I'll probably get a Jekyll or another, lighter x-country C-Dale in the next year or two, as well, for a total of 10.

    Not enough

    1) only 2 for now -- '00 Jekyll 1000SL with a few upgrades..XTR cranks, BB, F. Deraileur, Thompson seatpost, Avocet Ti O2 saddle, Easton Monkeylights, and soon Avid Mech and deciding on wheelset.

    The second is a recent purchase a '91 SE1000 European model....currently set up as my commuter. Still going through the bike and determining what to upgrade. But it did get the EA70 bar and Kalloy seatpost and an Avocet Ti O2 seat from the Jekyll. But having fun on it so far.

    2) I've only had the two I have now.

    3) Who changed over, I started with the Jekyll. Couldn't resist the huge discount on the 1" scratch on the fork.

    4) They are #1 and #2 although I do have a Bianchi co-mo in there--- I will trade it for a C-dale or parts (whichever is greater). And the girlfriend has a Trek 8500. Tried to put her on a F600 but couldn't pass up the deal on the 8500.

    5) No pics yet.

    Roll Call

    Boy, compared to some of you folks, I'm an absolute neophite. But what I do have, I'm very proud of. (As we all are, I'm sure!)

    1).How many have you got?
    2).How many have you had?
    3).When did you see the light and changeover?
    4).What number bike was it?
    5). Photos...

    1.) Just one for now. It's a 2004 Jekyll 800 in Sobe green.
    2.) Still, just the one.
    3.) This is the first bike I've owned since 1977. (I'm an old guy, but have always wanted a mountain bike. This is the first, and I'm having a ball!)
    4.) This is my second bike, the first was a Schwinn in the early 70's.
    5.) No photos yet, but soon.

    Thanks.

    re: Roll Call

    Hello all, have been posting a few component reviews, and thought I should drop by the Cannondale forum!

    1. Currently have a 1995 CAAD1 M200 22" (according to the owner's manual). It's a replacement frame for the one below.
    2. I've had 2. The first was a black (with green speckle) 23" Chameleon with Pepperonis. I think it may have been a '700' model number, I can't rightly remember as I bought it in 1991. Cost around £800 I think. It was shipped to the UK from America specially as I wanted the largest frame size. Front-end like a Tank, huge downtube, but rather skinny rear triangle. In fact, the sacrificial rear dropout held fast and the opposite chainstay snapped in 1995. Cannondale were good enough to replace it with my present frame (albeit an inch smaller) free of charge. I still run the original stem with the chameleon logo (though the logo has long since been obliterated).
    3. After BMXing for several years, I got a loan of a MuddyFox Courier in about 1990 which I rode for a year through the forests near my home. Eventually I had to return it to the owner (after fixing the damage I'd inflicted to it! It was little more than a roadbike frame with wider rims and tyres) but was hooked, and decided to buy a bike of my own. At the time there was Cannondale, Specialized and Klein available where I lived. I was almost persuaded to get one of those 26" front / 24" rear Cannondales that were around at the time, but was glad afterwards that I held off. After a chance visit to a small bikeshop in the Lake District in England I ordered my Chameleon from the States through them.
    4. The frame number? It's on the BB under the cableguide. Sorry I don't know it offhand.
    5. I'd like to post a photo of the current bike when I get one done. I wish I had more pics of the Chameleon, I only have one, taken end-on, so all you see is a rear tyre and seat!

    Have recently been renovating the bike, albeit with low-end components. It gets used every day for cycling to the office, and often hits the forest fire-roads at weekends. I would like a new bike sometime, but prices are so high for the sort I would want to upgrade to. I'm quite happy with the current one at the moment.

    1). 3 C-dales in the family at the moment.
    2). I'm on my 3rd C-dale. Other bikes in my current stabel include a Surly 1x1, LeMond Zurich, Trek XO-1, old custom Braxton touring bike, and a Trek 830 commuter. My significant other also has an '02 Scalpel 800.
    3). Made the change in 2002, after riding a 2001 Jekyll 1000 with Lefty. Immediately bought an '02 1000.
    4). Are we talking mtn bike here, or all bikes. I have no idea what number bike it was, but it was # 7 mountain bike. To this point they've been '86 Specialized Hard Rock that was too small, '89 Trek 830 (commuter), '96 Klein Pulse Comp 2, '99 K2/Pro-Flex 3000, '98 Marin Mt. Vision, '99 GT XCR 10000, '02 Cannondale Jekyll 1000, '03 Cannondale Scalpel 1000, and finally...
    5). '04 Cannondale Scalpel 2000

    Just the one, a new o4 Cannondale Gemini 2000

    None, my first one.

    Saw the light after numerus things, always been a Specialized Man, Original Stumpjumper, to recent01 SJ HT, 01 FS SJ, 03 S-works Hardtail, 03 S-works Epic 04 S-works enduro, spent the last few months with set up hassle and Finding the enduro didnt match my riding style and I found it too flimsy, changed my mind onto the gemini after seeing Cedric Gracia at the red bull rampage 3 DVD and looked up the reviews, and my LBS took back my Enduro and I got the gemini instead; much better for my riding and it climbs as good rear end, though the front end is a bit higher than im used to, but blows the enduro out of the water going down and going across rough stuff.

    Man, what a sweet ride.

    I'm really undecided about what Cannondale to get now. I've got an F300, so anything will be better

    I'm not a pro, but I'm getting semi-pro tendancies. Ride here in central Brazil - mainly very dry loose gravel all year + muddy conditions in the rainy season. In doubt about weather to get a Jekyl or a Scalpel.

    I'm tending for the Scalpel 2000 - which is what you got. Thought it looked crappy on the website, but your pic makes the gold/black look better than I thought.

    Do you think the extra $ is worth it to get the Scalpel 3000? And how about the Jekyl 3000? Any good for XC?

    I breifly thought about the 3000, but since I don't race, I just couldn't justify the extra expense. I also thought breifly about the Jekyll 3000 as the Lefty Max is really amazing and the new SPV shocks make the bike a better climber than Jekyll's of old, but I just love the geometry of the Scalpel, and I really don't need the extra travel for my normal rides. As for the 2000, it really looks great in person, and I love the way it rides! If you normally ride xc, no big drops, the Scalpel is hard to beat.

    "Scalpel 2500"

    1).How many have you got?
    - Main bike is now a Scalpel. When my Jekyll had a bent backend and showed some wear in bearings, I took the frame trade-in option and bought the scalpel frame with a carbon lefty on it. Not a new Jekyll, because I did not want more Travel than my old Jekyll.
    This color (White/Silver Hyperhlght) is the standard color of the 04' Scalpel 2000 here in europe. I then mounted the leftover parts from my Jekyll on it, so it is now a Scalpel 2500 or so... Frame size XL. Very sweet ride!
    - OK, I also have a BMC road bike (C'dale was not able to deliver the big frame sizes at that time) and a KONA beater bike (bought at the price of a XTR crankset...)

    2).How many have you had?
    F1000, Jekyll 3000, now Scalpel

    3).When did you see the light and changeover?
    With the F1000 in '97. The Jekyll was an unbelievably great bike. Took me anywhere, felt comfortable.

    4).What number bike was it?
    Second mountain bike.

    5). Photos...
    scalpel. new frame, old parts

    Well, at the 2000 level there's about a $500 difference, with the Jekyll being more expensive. I guess you're paying extra for the Lefty Max and SPV rear shock.

    frame trade-in is organised by cannondale. you bring your old frame and get a new one cheaper. see in the back of the c'dale catalogue (mine is europe version) what models are available.

    so far so good. the bad news is that a c'dale frame at a discount is still not for free, especially with european c'dale prices. the scalpel frame above (with carbon lefty dlr and fox pro-pedal) costs the same as a fully equipped jekyll 800 (list prices here)..... is it worth it? in my case it was still a good way to acquire my scalpel, since i had 1-year old parts like crossmax wheels and xtr crankset left from the jekyll....

    Live in Las Vegas and ride mostly single track, loose over hard pack, and rocks with some technical downhills. Yeah, looks pretty clean but didn't last long. This is before the first ride but have some "clean" battle scars on her now and plenty of desert dust!

    Nice bike, the geometry looks a lot like mine (a 2003 CAAD4 Frame) it's really versatile, I love it. It feels great for climbing, as well as technical DH, or trials. Great geometry.

    I've got two. A Y2k jekyll 900sl (the original jekyll). It is my third mtb. Still kickin' hard, and I also have a 2003 R800 CAAD4 road bike. Both awesome bikes.

    Someone gave me an old-school cannondale mountainbike. It's from the 80's. It's my first cannondale. I've had Specialized and Giant bikes before. Been biking in Marin since 1984. Numbers on the Cannondale are 8803432. Anybody have any idea what year/model it is?

    You turn
    1) Two but one is a beater/spinner bike (ORYX HT with SID 100, old XMax UST rims, and lots of heavy Scalpel stuff from my 800). My pride and joy is a 2002 Scalpel 800 with FSA Ti BB and Carbon Cranks, Velocity VXC hoops with WTB Lazer Disc hubs, Python Airlight and sealant, WTB Rocket Lazer saddle, Maxm carbon seatpost and bar, SRAM X9 rear der and 9.0 shifters (8 spd), Formula B4SL+ brakes, Look 4x4 pedals, ODI Rogue bolt on grips (one locking collar only), 10x5 deg OEM stem, and a Jekyll rear shock lockout kit. She should be close to 23lbs now. This ride is an awesome enduro bike setup! I've had it for 9 month and for the first time in years I haven't been interested in getting anything else (ok, maybe a Jekyll trail bike would be a nice addition but not replacement).

    2) Had an GT Zaskar HT and a couple of SantaCruz Superlights (warranty replacements)

    3) I always liked the Scalpel setup. I saw a smoking deal for a brand new one (although almost 2 years old) from a shop so I had to try it. *Super* stiff front and rear compared to the Superlight and awesome razor handling (some would say nervous). For $1600 Cdn including taxes and lifetime warranty how could I say no? I sold the wheels/brakes/saddle/cassette/shifter for over $650. The only original component left is the LX front derailleur b/c it was actually lighter than the XT unit I had and it works great. So now I've got a great frame *and* fork for only $950 Cdn. Bought all the other stuff whenever I saw a deal and made a sweet high-end bike for relatively little coin.

    4) We'll say 3, not counting the two Santa Cruz Superlight warranty replacments.

    5) Here's the only one I've got b/c it's a pic of both of my toys.

    1 & 2) This '04 Jekyll 800 is my first Cannondale, first full suspension bike, and first mountain bike purchased for the intent of mountain biking.

    3) The Jekyll just felt better than any of the other bikes in my price range. It was plush, quick, climbed well, and it just plain looked good. Also, it was 20% off.

    4) Discounting bikes that have never seen a trail, this is my third bike. I have a '98 Specialized Rockhopper that's rigid and steel which I used to satisfy my mountain biking needs for a while at home in California. It's now a singlespeed commuter. And I have an '03 Raleigh M20 (purchased before I knew anything about bikes) that I use for commuting at school in Michigan and for the occasional road or trail ride.

    5) #1 is a hill at the top of a local trail
    #2 is a stream crossing at the bottom of a local trail
    #3 while we're doing the bike on car thing...even though I can't even come close to comparing with fritzman

    '91 Legend. It's a great car with good power, handling good enough to keep me out of trouble (most of the time) and unbelievable reliability. I wish it had better fuel economy though, and the brand new roof rack certainly doesn't help.

    More bikes on cars

    .. just reminded me how I drove to Italy in 2000. Gives me a chance to show the Mango '97 F1000 mentioned in my earlier post. And a blue F600 (about '99).
    Top of car opens and closes with bikes mounted, a necessity in our area where it rains every other day ....

    I've only had one....

    I bought it in late 94. CADD2 F500 with a MC50 Headshok, full STX RC, WTB rims that weighed 5 pounds a piece. Toe clips. Bike weight... around 30 lbs.



    Up graded to full XT in 98 and put on a Fatty 70 with Mavic 517's. Full Easton Carbon cockpit. Time Atac's Carbon Ti.
    I also went full on Tinker Juarez style and had a 90mm stem with -30 rise. Weight 25.5




    IN 2001, upgraded to full XTR and Mavic CrossMax's. Same fork, one rebuild.

    Now, in 2004, it's been stripped. All the components on another frame (girlfriends).
    I'm working on rebuilding it into a long travel jumper/freerider.

    It's a great frame and I can't let it go. I can't wait to rebuild it. If it could handle 8 foot drops in the origional stock mode as I bought it ( I was young and brave then, or stupid) I know it can handle anything I give it now, especially since I weigh less, ride better, and will have it built with top of the line heavy duty ****.

    I bought the NSX when it was 5years old (Im the 2nd owner) I love it cause its well light & balanced just like my Jeckyll. The strong points of it is handling (feels like an F1). I dont have the blueprints on it.

    I would highly recommend it to any autoenthusiast.

    regards,

    Yeah it sure is. That's one of the items on my upgrade path. I hope to find a new stem and a monkey bar to go with it sometime soon. My hands are numbing and my wrists are a little sore when riding.

    2).How many have you had? only these 2
    3).When did you see the light and changeover? The F600 was my first bike purchase

    Thanks eric. Although it's well hidden (intentionally), the car is fair modified to BSS (B class, Super Stock) Solo2 (Autocross) regulations. It's got lowering springs, front and rear adjustable sways, front and rear lower tie bars, 1" rear wheel spacers, harness bar with Simpson 4 point harness, Russell stainless brake lines with Hawk HP+ front pads and HPS rear and ATE Super blue fluid, high flow cats, upgraded Y pipe, JWT Popchager (air filter), lightened pulley, Kumho Ecsta MX 245/40/18 all round, and stainless headers (on order). The car has seen some local success beating a couple 911s, a new generation M3 (E46), R compound equipped S2000, and within 1.5 seconds (on a 70 second course) to a Viper coupe in experienced hands. I think with some further development time I'll be able to take the Viper.

    Back to bikes, here's my latest Cannondale acquisition (2003 Cannondale R2000). I'm looking to get into Triathlons for next season so I've got to get my roadie legs going again (maybe a Cannondale Ironman down the road?). I'll still be keeping the Scalpel b/c I love the ride so much (I'm taking it to the Trans Rockie race this summer).
