    Cannondale sightings

    Anybody ever see Cannondales in magazines, commercials or ads (non-Cannondale advertisements)?

    I noticed a Cannondale in the latest Garmin ad on page 79 of the May 2008 issue of Bike.
    Picture is a little blurred and the guy riding the bike has his leg blocking the view of the top tube so I'm not sure if it's a Rush or a Prophet but the Lefty stands out.

    Saw another Cannondale in a spread in the Feb/Mar issue of Complex. It featured a colaboration with G-Star clothing that showed what looks like an F-Series Cannondale in a slick matte grey color with Brooks accessories. It's on page 80 and 81 of the issue. You can actually see it in more detail on the G-Star site.

    Feel free to post your sighting or better yet, pictures and links.

    Page 55 of Bike magazine July 2008 issue. Looks like a Rush in a GU energy gel ad.

    looks like Prophet or Rush in Roam, the Moab scene where they pan over 15 or so bikes on a rock ledge/ridge. I think.

    There's a car comercial (can't remember what for), but for like a 1/4 of a second, it shows a guy riding a prophet on the street (paused it using dvr), also, a commercial for traveling to lake tahoe shows a couple guys that look like elvis riding what looks like prophets in northstar (and ripin it). Not to mention countless ads in mountain bike an bike magazines I've seen that feature C-dales (ussaully rush) can't think of much else

    There is a Toyota ad in last month's Maxim, or Men's Fitness magazine where two guys are playing bike polo. One of them is riding either a Rush, or a Prophet.

    Two movies(I forget which) where Tom Cruise and Zach Braff, both ride Cannondales also. LeBron James has been seen courtside, showing-off his personalized, "King James" Bad Boy too.

    In a skateboard movie from Fourstar clothings called Super Champion Funzone, they show skateboarding extraordinaire and artist Mark Gonzales riding in NYC aboard his red Prophet in the extras... He does a wall ride and hop over thrash and such.

    I spotted a Cannondale under my a$$ while I was shreading some local singletrack

    I have also seen them on a bunch of fitness tv shows, on jeep KOM television events, on ESPN back in like 1996 when MTB was on TV...and on MTV sports with Dan Cortese when Misse Giove was on the show

    I saw another episode tonight and the episode was filmed in 1993 and the frame looks like a Killer V.
