A short while ago I posted a thread debating whether to build a Cannondale or a Mixte for my girlfriend and it was entirely conclusive that I should go for the latter. So with a heavy heart, I'm going to be passing this on.
52cm Cannondale CAAD3 in excellent condition (considering its age) a couple of marks here and there from use.
In the sale I'm including an m-part band on front derailleur mount and headset (headset will do the job but is a bit on the kak side.)
Only asking for what it owes me, £100.
Collection from London Velo/Deptford Park.
she chose a mixte over a usa made caad in excellent condition?! you shouldve made the exec decision
Would you enjoy cycling if someone forced you to ride a mixte that you didn't want?
The most important thing was for her to ride the bike, so my exec decision changed from wanting her to have a bad ass fuckin rad bike she wasn't keen on and potentially not ride as much, to building her a nice bike she would actually want to ride. Maybe if I may be so lucky, myself and the buyer could arrange a provisional dibs for me to buy this back off them one day when she will want a bad ass fuken rad C-dale.
exactly, the point is for her to have the bike she wants and wants to ride, not what I want her to have which she doesn't like, which might actually be objectively way more bad ass and 1million% better to ride
Yep, get her riding and then introduce the idea. Best of luck!
That's the plan, thanks man!
I'll take this if you can ship to Bristol?
No worries if not!
I’d rather not ship it but I’ll get back to you if no one in London wants it
sad ending to the mixte/rad Cannondale saga
I’m a Londoner and will buy it from you if it’s still available? (South though..... if you don’t mind me taking it across the river ;-)
Christ on a bike.
I've been after one of these, in this size forever.
Yep - I would give you first dibs on a buy back too (if I don’t fall in love with the thing - haha) :-)
You have first dibs, pm sent
Cool :-) (Bear with me while I work out this forum on my iPhone) :-)
oh no ...should I buy it?
I'll take this if it's still going - PM'd
