Trackosaurus Rex: Arik’s 49cm Cannondale Track


Photo by Kyle Kelley

Most builders will tell you that a bike has the best proportions around 54-56cm in size. Yamaguchi will tell you that a 49cm bike will bring all frame design problems to the forefront. Modern cycling tells you that the tighter, more compact the frame is, the stiffer, lighter and most importantly, pro it is. All that applies here. Is Arik short? Or just going for that über pro look?

Cyclonesia: Cargo Cannondale
Dale

Ippe’s Cannondale track might annoy the purists but having just put a basket on my Icarus, I can say that it’s awfully nice to not have to shlep around a backpack anymore. See more of this beauty at Cyclonesia.

Evan’s back in Portland, where he bumped into Matchew on the street, outside Stumptown coffee. I like candid portraits and couldn’t pass this one up. Fast ‘n Loose!

Neil’s Cannondale Commuter
Beautiful Bicycle: Neil's Cannondale Commuter

When Neil walked through the doors of GSC one afternoon with this bike, I couldn’t help but be intrigued. There were so many little details that drew me to scope it out. It had a substantially higher bottom-bracket than you’d normally see on a MTB, especially a Cannondale. There was a Death Spray Custom sticker on the downtube, and a rare one at that. And it was covered with team sponsorship logos.

While some would say it’s not a MTB if there are road tires on it, I would disagree. It’s the frame and the frame’s geometry that decide the nomenclature and this is most definitely a mountain bike, albeit with its flip flops on…

SF #RideNStyle Weekend Randomness 03
SF Randomness

It’s the last day before the #RideNStyle competition here in SF. I rolled out the the #fixiefamous crowd from the Mission, out to the Embarcadero to see the course and bumped into all the fixed freestyle guys. The following set is all over the place but there are some gems in there!

Kenny and His Cannondale Cargo
Kenny's Cannondale

Kenny always has the nicest work bikes. His Raleigh, Guerciotti and now this Cannondale track bike have been featured on the site but this one takes the cake. Chris Lee bought this frame a few months back and realized it was too big for him, seeing an opportunity, Kenny snatched it up. Since the original fork was nowhere to be found, he picked up a similar track fork and threw a Cetma on it. Now the fork and the rack have a nice patina to them and Kenny is already riding it into the ground. As evidence by the bird shit all over it, he’s more into the ride, than keeping a museum-quality icon of the 90’s track racing scene.
