Looks like the frame has been restored
Came with some goobery looking tool kit on back but had a spare tube in it.
Indexed gears need some adjusting but definitely works. Put 35km on it today.
Frame is a smidge to small for me (6'2") but some longer bars and a taller seat post will fix that.
Bottom bracket, hubs and headset all feel tight, no rocking.
Hell yes, I scored an old road bike like this at the dump a while ago and spent like $20 on new tires, love it!
In 2019 that would be called a gravel bike and retail for $800 😁

thats worth 100 :D
glad to see a bike and not a pile of cocaine or a hooker
Angle makes it look like a bike for little people
I remember being so jealous of one of those at a race back in the mid 90’s. Watching the poor guy walk it back out of the woods after what could only be described an extremely major rear-end mechanical lessened my jealousy. It was still a cool bike.
Nice username. I hope you’re just a Pepsi hater
That’s so cool
Bonus before shot
Clearly Calvin hasn't heard of cyclocross
And then I double it, but nevermind.
Just finished installing R8020 hydraulic shifters, R8070 hydro calipers, R8000 chain, new brake hoses, new shifting cables and housing, new R8000GS RD, R8000 FD and some new LIzardskins bar tape this weekend.
Shoutout to /r/bikewrench for the help, I thought it'd be a lot harder than it was to run the new hydro cable to my rear caliper, but a $5 tool made the job a breeze.
A few weeks ago I installed the Stages R8000 52/36 crank, R8000 pedals, K-Edge chain keeper, and Vittoria Corsa G One 28mm tires.
I did the Bontrager Aelous Pro 5 wheels, Bontrager Pro Stem, Bontrager XXX VR-C 440mm bars, and Bontrager carbon seat mast last year.
Bike was all 5800/RS505 with alloy components when I bought it. The only thing original now is frame, fork, and BB. Here's a pic the day I bought it
And yes, I know, cut the steer tube. No. :p I might want to sell this bike or the frame some day, and I plan to bring the bars up for really long fondos. The iso speed seems to work better with higher bars.
All in all it didn't save a bunch of weight (somewhere around 200 grams), but I took off a lot of excess housing, it shifts much smoother (tbf the RS505 shifts worse than my 5700 bike) the hoods feel better and brake better, and the new RD removing chain slap I'm hoping will be really nice on my terrible city roads.
This is Japan?
Fishing-rod holders is my guess.
Look like bongs to me!
Tubes for carrying posters and they filled with water from neglect. That's my guess
The more you look at it, the crazier it gets.
Loving the Mavics!
That's sick! I've been looking for a Peloton frame to rebuild for a while! Well done!
Looks like a ripper!
Those are some fucking long reach bars.
Crazy what a set of tires does to a bikes look
Those trails look awesome. Nice bike too. Whereabouts?
I'm a simple man, I see Cannondale, I upvote.
Awesome bike! I have a CAAD10 105 from ‘14. Love it. It’s done 5,000km and still going strong. Upgraded the wheels (Mavic Ksyrium) handlebar and saddle after a couple of years to lighten it (ok...it was actually because the wheels looked awesome with red highlights which matched the saddle which matched the bar tape which meant I needed matching red and black Fizik R5 shoes and then I had to find matching bottles and cages).
Thinking it’s now time to go for the SuperSix Evo Red etap.
