    Volvo Cannondale F5000sl Olympic Edition Bike! Cadel Evans

    Finally got around to start building this beautiful frame. I purchased this frame years ago and it looks like it was never ridden. I believe there were only a handful of these bikes made for Cadel Evans. The frame actually has his name as a sticker on the top tube (not on the frame currently). I wonder if this was a back up bike that he used in the 2000 Olympics?
    I am currently building it up with XTR 1x11, XTR Brakes, Extralite Cranks, and Stans wheels. Current weight is about 17lbs.
    More pictures to come once I am done building.

    Gorgeous bike! By the way, why Shimano, not SRAM Eagle?

    Because having to spend $300+ on cassettes (when XTR can be had for under 2 bills), is an extraordinarily poor use of toy money all things considered.

    I'm more troubled by the lack of period correct build, personally.
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    Bro, are you referring to $1 bills?
    If so, please can you point me in the right direction?

    I think the bike looks great except for that huge rear brake cable which appears to be an obvious hazard to any wildlife, children or old ladies loitering too close.

    Happy New Year!
