Ok here is my work in progress, F&F were bought second hand off a chap on here, parts were transferred from my written off Six-13.

Upgrades will be either Campag Record 11 speed or I may try out Sram Red at some point. I have an FSA SB32 carbon seatpost to go on it and am looking for a deal on either a Fizik Anteres or Selle Italia SLR in white, and a pair of FSA Winf-Pro Compact bars. I have also taken out 1 spacer from under the stem, the rest will follow when I loose weight and improve my flexibility (gotta get that pro look 8) )

I must admit it is the stiffest and most stable bike I have ever ridden, I can descend at 45mph and take the hands off the bars with confidence, sprinting is a joy as well, every pedal stroke send you forward. The trade is that you do get beaten up on longer rides, but hey ho it's a crit bike .

Sorry about the pics size but after 2 bottles of Leffe, changing them would be a step too far :roll:

    I got hit from behind by some bloke trying to overtake me, the six-13 looked ok upon initial inspection but when you looked closer there were cracks where the carbon married up with the aluminium, 2 LBS looked at it and said in their opinion it was written off.

    The parts on the bike were scratch etc but luckily they all work fine, but when I can afford it they will be upgraded. I tried Sram the other day and liked the shift action, but am torn as I am a campag man and 11spd Record looks the dogs danglies.

    Oh and I have just had a pair of black and lime green Vittorias delivered for my training wheels (my nod to liquigas) so will post update pics when new parts arrive.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    Hey mate where abouts are the shots taken in/around Bris? Looks nice and quiet but i don't recognise it...

    Oh and great looking bike for a Cannondale ;) (yep, that is as much a veiled insult as it is a compliment, i just can't help it :lol:) Enjoy!

    Ekimike,

    Shots were taken on the shake down ride after building it to check all was working, they were taken on the Bristol-Bath cycle path one evening, so it was quietish.

    If you like quiet lanes for rides then let me know and I will send you some links to maps of rides that I do, the lanes are narrow so you hardly see any cars about, the downside (or not) is that they are bloody hilly :D
