    Some Dude made fun of my C-Dale at the 4th of July Parade today!

    Granted it is quite possibly the ugliest bike that I own and usually doesnt see much use. But, my Son insisted that I ride it with him today in the big bike parade.

    Anyways...there I was having a great time with my little Boy and some Dude yells out...

    I've seen more yellow on Tour de France champs bikes. But then again, your lucky you don't have a trailer on that thing, random people would just get on it and yell street intersections to you...

    ... if you paint the legs yellow, it'd be an eye-melting yellowfest!

    Cannondale's designers must have been on acid.

    Still, it does look cool.

    Is your user name because of that bike or because of FZ ?

    I had that frame many years ago...I loved it! I was riding one day in Northern Mass and it was hunting season. I had my yellow framed bike and a white Team Cannondale jacket on...pretty visible for sure. Came up on these two hunters and they gave me **** about them "mistaking" me for a g-damn deer! I told them if they mistook me for a deer than they shouldn't be hunting.
    I like bikes.
