    Cannondale throwback frames

    Anyone see the carbon frames that 'Dale are making that are painted up liek the Red/Yellow and Blue/yellow of the 90's seasons? I kinda like the idea (But then I have a GT Zaskar reissue, so like that kind of stuff)

    All the gear and no idea.

    I really like those and would like to have Scalpel in these colors.

    Yeah, I just stumbled across them on the CDale site earlier today. If I was in the market for the FSi, I'd be all over the blue one. Like TurboKoo, I wish for some Scalpel frame options. Maybe a couple versions of a Delta V color scheme, or a fade... I wish they would offer the Ocho separately in red or blue, too.

    I was also tempted by this.... but not even I can justify 3.5k when I already have a perfectly functioning Scalpel SI.
    and no, I am not missing the other half of my fork....

    Go ahead Cannondorel, use a bit more of the history you basically stole, to line your pockets in a bid for a quick buck.

    Just gross.

    I remember when the factory was full of viper red in the mid-90's. Seemed like everything was viper red! Ah...the memories...

    wish they'd throw a little Killer V frame action at the Fat CAD, the stand over on that thing is ridiculous.

    Lefty 60 hub for the front, Im not too sure about the rear, it seems to be 142mm TA, but it could also be 142QR.
    As for groupsets, I think all are compatible.

    What?! They gave a hardtail boost spacing but left its full-sus buddy in non-boost?

    here it is

    use is training-rides, not too technical

    build
    some old stuff I found in the basement
    XX1/GX drivetrain, 11sp
    slx-brakes, absolute black rotor in the back
    syncros and C'dale stem/setpost/... => might pimp them with some yellow
    saddle: Brooks C15

    had to use a C'dale cranckset and of course a new wheelset
    went for Stans Crest in carbon, hope it won't be too harsh
    went back to Schwalbe tires: might change to maxxis after summer
