    9 speed upgrade help!

    Cannondale R4000 opinions?

    Thanks for the info, the frame is in great condition and the star and stripes finish is brilliant ;). I am also interested in hearing how the R4000 rides as I cannot find much about it on the net. Just a reference to a character from a Manga comic called "Blade of the Immortal" :D Very well...

    What nation breeds the best cyclists?

    I was only referring to Road Cycling at the amateur/domestic level. Look at the City I live in for example. 100 000 people live here.....we have approx 100 cyclists in the cycling club with only around 40 of those being racing cyclists, if it wasn't for mountain biking the 2 LBS would struggle...

    What nation breeds the best cyclists?

    Australia...add them to the poll!!!! If you could see the little support that Cycling gets here in Australia compared to most other sports then you would understand that it is a miracle that anyone rides as a Pro let alone wins a green jersey (3 years straight to aussies!!!!) wears...

    Early 90s Cannondale questions?

    Thanks again for the advice :) Given that my BB seems ok (the shop that serviced the bike said it was anyway) can I just get a new crankset put onto this one? What do I need to look for?
