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…

    nice setup and one of the last few years cannondale actually made bikes in the USA. I’m using a ’91 Cannondale SR800 to commute right now.

    I’d like to see what’s engraved on the bottom bracket.  It looks like it may have been a custom trials frame for Lance Trappe or Libor Karas.  If it was their name would be on the bb where you’d normally see a serial #.

      Close – it’s Martyn Ashton. There’s a serial number down there though, not his name. Forks are serial numbered too.
