    What are these features for? (Cannondale Tango 1 question)

    I just bought a Cannondale Tango 1. After I brought it home, I noticed a few features on the bike that I don't know the purpose of. Unfortunately, the manual is just a generic Cannondale manual.

    I know one of the things in the second picture is for an internally routed front shifter cable, but I have no idea about the other stuff. Can anyone help me out.

    The first picture: the lower square is for a front derailleur if you need one. The bosses on the seatstay are for a commuter rack.

    1st pic - top circle is mounting boss with pannier racks, lower square is for high direct mount front derailleurs.
    2nd and 3rd pic - both are for the front derailleur. I believe it’s external route shifting?

    Those are all for attaching weight to the bike.

    Ha!

    What is this "front derailleur" thing about which you speak? Sounds exotic.

    Its the newest technology, it doubles, even triples your gear selection, amazing! What will they think of next, pedals that you can put your feet on in any position?
    I think the semicircular plug on back of seat tube is for internal routing dropper post?

    GoPro mounts. < joking but. . .

    At least the front derailleur mount could be MacGyver’ed that way.

    The idea I had was a mount that angled the camera inside the triangle with a swing pivot to point it where you want it. Not sticking out the side of the bike, tucked in.

    That "front derailleur mount" is actually a bottle opener mount.

    So it is still kind of useful.
    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    Could be worse, I don't own a bike without one, and I have a bunch of bikes.
    All the gear and no idea.

    Awesome strap attachment points. Only the awesomest bikes have them.
    Use it, use it, use it while you still have it.

    Rack mounts like this one don't work all that great but they're better than nothing, which is what came on my Salsa.

    Rack mounts like this with a V-brake are a lot of fun during fitment.

    Thanks for the help. I doubt I'll ever want to add a front derailleur, but I might use that hole for a dropper post at some point. I like the bottle opener. Wonder I'd they make anything else that can attach there?
