Right from the Black Forest

17 Apr

Where there were built to enjoy nature. Yeah, you’re guess is correct. Today I’ve received the last parts to finish my new Cannondale Flash. It’s about the parts from Tune: a Komm-Vor saddle, a Starkes Stuck seat post and a pair of wheels made with Cannonball and Kong hubs, Sapim CX-Ray spokes (the strongest and some of the lightest spokes on the planet!) and ZTR Alpine rims. I’ve also mounted on the front wheel the new prototype rotor from Ashima, a two piece rotor named AiNeon. It weights 72 grams and it has the same braking surface as the Ai2 which I like a lot.

Now the bike is 100% ready and it weights 8.02kg with Continental Race King 2,2 tires. As these tires are wider and taller they are almost like the 650b. To be more precise they have 27.2″.

More photos are available right HERE.

I hope that the rain will stop and I will be able to ride these new pieces of engineering as soon as possible.

Cheers,

Vlad
