Cannondale M900

1997-present

The old horse for commuting to work. Own it for like 16 years now, never let me down. Mostly stood still from 2004 to 2008.

I don’t have a parts list for this one, since most parts were at purchase and still are, unlabeled, likely cheap, parts. I do know that (V-)breaks and shifting is Shimano XT based (roughly 1997) and that I put a Truvativ Hussefelt bar on it. But that’s about it. It does not have any quick release so I can leave it at the station a little easier. Since I use it when it’s dark, I put ugly spoke reflectors on the spokes and attached a carrier in the back.

These pictures are about 4 years old and don’t represent the current build, but they do show what the bike has been up to at that time :)
