    Looks really nice. Good use of red and white. Now, you can't really ride it because you'll never be able to keep it clean. :wink::wink:
  • Very very nice bike, what handlebar tape is that?

    I noticed that you have your sensor on the chain stay as opposed to the forks as per normal set up, is this better and is it a cateye micro wireless you got ? i got mine on the forks and i gotta admit it does get annoying looking at it sometimes messing up the clean look of the forks.

    It's probably the Cateye sensor which does Speed and Cadence in one. If so, it's positioned on the chainstay because it has to be near a wheel and a crankarm.

    So there is no way i can have my sensor off the forks then? It looks so unsightly

    Mate give it a go. Try it on the back wheel.....

    He's not using the same sensor as you. Some sensors need to be within a certain number of centimetres from the main computer unit. Certainly Polar ones do. Dunno about your one.

    I'm using Garmin 705 with cadence sensor so that's why it's on the chainstay. As EKIMIKE said, you could try moving your sensor but the computer may not pick up the signal from that far away.

    I got the Arundel Mandible cages from http://www.echelon-cycles.co.uk/index.html they aren't advertised on their website but if you ring you can order them. Think Posh Bikes also sell them.

    Thanks mate i gave it a go last night and it was like you said i need the cadence kit for my computer which i can get. The furthest i could put it was on the top tube under the saddle but tht looked so daft lol lol .. So i put it back :( never mind

    Hi I have just ordered the super six hi-mod sram red. your pics show a cannondale carbon? crank, is this standard as the web shows standard sram red crank arms?

    thanks

    Yeah when i ordered it i thought it would come with standard Red cranks but these were fitted wheh it arrived. They're still SRAM cranks (say powered by SRAM on) but 'rebadged' by Cannondale. Not sure on the actual difference tbh
  • It looks fast even leaning against the wall.

    Gorgeous. :D

    The only drawback now is, you only have yourself to blame when you lose.
  • The wheels really bring it to life. Nice one dude 8)

    Well done that man. Correct! They're not actually X Lite tubes in there though. Just took the caps off my other bike. Bit of OCD coming through.

    Really pleased with the wheels, even if I haven't got much use out of them, only use them on good days. Cannondale's been away since October, be like xmas when I can put the winter bike away and get this out again :D

    Redruth/Truro area, mostly ride down West; St Ives, Penzance way. I haven't seen your Boardman flash past me, so you must be further up.
