Cannondale Flash 27,5″!

It is one thing with just changing parts and put in some bigger wheelset in a Flash 26″ frame but when you grind the paint of, you drill a couple of holes to get the hosing for the rear brake integrated. Then you take of unnecessary wire mounts, direct mount, bottle cage parts and put a thin layer of carbon to cover the holes. Then repainting and you saved weight. That is really cool.

This build can be the best Cannondale I’ve seen:

The boring parts is the seatpost that is some YPY thing, should have got a proper AX-Lightness Europa. The bike is worth it. And the Ryde Edge rims isn’t said to be so good so better with a pair of FRM XMD333 instead. And as always, a Tune Komm-Vor saddle 😉

But the rest then? Best brakes, groupset, crank, lightest Lefty (and good too, not just light) and so on. spec:
