Well i picked this lime green Cannondale up yesterday morning from a local seller who admitted he hadn’t really done more than 500 miles since buying it new in 2016 .
Upon riding it home I noticed that the saddle needed to up a bit for me but decided against doing that till I had fitted one of my Selle Smp lite 209’s .
Once home and with the Selle smp fitted I set about getting it ready for this morning’s ride .
After not a poor nights sleep I was up and out by 5.05 am with a route in mind that could be shortened at any point . First stop was along Pitsford Promenade where I raised the seat post another half an inch .
I headed out through Brixworth ,Cottesbrooke ,Haselbeach , Arthingworth , Desborough ,Wilbarston where I made another seat post adjustment along with a gentle rotation of the flat bars . I pressed on to Pipewell , Rushton ,Kettering ,Pytchley and Little Harrowden before turning down the mad mile and home .
Bike went well over the 47 miles just need to decide now whether to keep the flat bars or swap them over to the original drops.
