      all i have noticed is that everyone is short. these bikes are little compared to mine. (the second bike on page 1)............ for the guys that race, do you finish well. when i am racing it is us taller guys that always finish on the top.............
      It seems that all the bikes are small but when you find "older" bikes for sale, the frames are all MASSIVE I am convinced that everyone who rode a bike in the 80's was 6'8"

      Tired of all the blue ones

      Didn't do any riding this year due to bursitis in my right shoulder.

      Here are my Fiance's and my road bicycles. Her's is the blue nishiki, low end but she likes riding it. Mine is the Panasonic, it's an 88 with the full 105 group and biopace cranks, rides like new. Nothing expensive and technology filled but we like riding them, so who cares!

      I'm noncommittal.

      (yes, it's a lousy photo, there's a pie plate, reflectors, and there's no pedals. I forgot to bring "tools" to work the day that my new bike came in! There's no handlebars either...)
      I'll replace this with a proper photo once it's further out of the box it came in!

      i bet you could lose 100grams in stickers alone.
      very nice bike though. i'd love to have it.

      Yeah... I want to make sweet love to that bike but it does look like a dog ate a sticker book and threw up on it.

      If they weren't clear-coated on I'd lose all of them except the downtube - no idea why C'dale has to sticker every tube. Thanks for the compliments though! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      No way! I actually like the way it looks with all the stickers on my C'dale. They seem to stand out on your CAAD 8 more though for some reason, which is cool [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] Still, thats about 5 million less stickers then Ridley's have on their frames A guy at one of our group rides asked me who made my bike, kidding that it was so hard to figure out by looking at the bike

      I like the stickers, it's just that so many of them say the same thing. They at least could have put a "Cannondale Advanced Aluminum Design" on the seat tube instead of just another "Cannondale". But IMO it's a hot bike to look at. I bought the ES's mainly for the looks.

      Okay, this picture still fails in various ways, but I got the bike together and took it for a ride in the hills...For some reason they forgot to put a Cannondale sticker on the chainstays on the six13s

      I'm 99% finished with my latest road bike. Just need to finish up with bar tape.

      Took it on a 30 mile test ride yesterday. This thing is really smooth!

      Nice, nice, nice.

      Nice tourer [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] What frame is that?
      I'm in love with tourers again after pulling my 24 year old Schwinn from my parents basement. The details of this frame are amazing. I didn't realize what kind of Gem I had. Many of these are getting converted to fixies, or city use





      Looks like you did a similar bar setup. I just ordered a set of Nitto Randonneur bars, some cross levers, and Tektro R200a levers. I can't wait to get them installed.

      Dave.
