Hi there!

Thought it was time to introduce my ride. Thinking of removing the Edge decals or swap them for a set of black ones.
Other then that I'm pretty happy with my ride so far. Haven't got the opportunity to see her on a scale yet.

Hope you like it

Cheers from Sweden!

Greetings :beerchug: That is a very well put together ride and makes me want to own a Cannondale some day. Very nice part selection and aesthetics. Personally, I like the EDGE stickers on the wheels but could go either way, with or without.

I usually hate decals on wheels except white decals on a black w/white logo frame. Looks awesome. All you need to do is anodize your crank arms and you will be all set

Nice c'dale. For me I'd remove the decals on the wheels and change the stem. But it looks awesome as it is .

Very nice Dale!! Personally I would go black Edge stickers but the white ones work with that paint scheme.

Great build that I'm sure leaves nothing to be desired. The Cannondale b/w paint job got to be the best monochromatic one out there, and the wheels are a perfect match.

From an aesthetic point of view black cranks arms and maybe a more subtle stem might round off the looks.

Heard about "HockeyMonkey"? :)

I think there is four stores in the US.

There's only one in Europe (Södertälje, Sweden) and I'm pretty sure it's the
biggest of all available ice hockey stores in Europe.

Looks even better without the stickers, but it was already nice apart from the sloping saddle. I especially like that chunky stem, but I think it would look even better with a spacer that's the same width as the frame. The transition would then look less pronounced than with the conical spacer. I had some spacers made for my Super6 and then promptly lost them.

Now you're styling.. looks much nicer without the decals. Just my two cents.

Very lovely build and it was a good choice to take the decals of the wheels. It's a much cleaner look and not so busy anymore. I have to agree with some of the other , I'm not a big fan if the stem since I don't like bigger stems in general. One more suggestion would be to get a different looking spacer under the stem.
Still, this is a beautiful ride as is.
Great job!!!

I replaced my white decals with some outline cut vinyl decals in black I got custom made..
Heaps less busy but still keeping it real.
The wheels need something other wise they may as well be chinese carbon which edge/enve wheels are not.
