Just shot a couple of images of my bike as it looks now... Upgraded the stem with a 3T ARX-Team with a -17 degree bend. Also removed the decals from my Vuelta wheelsets.

Like the white rims. Very distinctive..

I would swap that ARX stem out for something all black or maybe wet white..

Looks a lot better with no decals on the wheels, and a -17 stem.

By the way when you take side pictures, try and take them of the drive side.

Thanks... I'm also really happy with the result after I removed the decals. My next images will be of the drive side :)

That was not a bad idea at all... I've already thought of giving it some primer, black paint and some clear coat. Maybe put some Cannondale decals under the clear coat.

But the green line was not a bad idea at all :) Thanks

Why didn't the US sell the Liquigas CAAD9 in the US? Where can I find one?
Due to the urging of all the ladies...I do NOT shave my legs!

I would talk with your Cannondale dealer and see if they can get you one from Europe, although this is an '08 model. Otherwise you should be able to find one from an European dealer.

Do you like those Vuelta Superlites?
How long do you have them and do you like them?
