Unfortunately due to buying another cross bike and a lack of space I need to let possibly my favourite bike I've ever owned go. Recently featured on the Radavists Readers Rides: https://theradavist.com/2020/10/readers-rides-theos-custom-polished-95-track-cannondale-caadx/
It's a custom painted Cannondale CAADX framset with a woundup fork, inspired by a '95 Ctrack.
I've raced it all last cross season and loved it, then swapped to some wider tyres and a bigger cassette over summer and ridden it on some longer gravel rides and it's been more than capable throughout. You could even stick some slicker tyres and a rack on the back of it an commute on it, if you wanted.
The specs are a little different to pictured, most notably the Infocrank has been swapped out for a Hope RX Crankset. I can take some more up to date photos if they're needed.
It's a long cage rear mech so you can swap the cross cassette out for something with a bit more range if you wanted (11-42), or you could run the whole thing 2x as it’s a double left hand lever and the crankset will take it.
Groupset is a mix of Ultegra, Deore XT and GRX but is all Ultegra level. Wheels are some Bitex hubs laced to DT XR331's hand built by Jonny at Noble Wheels, currently with some 33c Maxxis Mud Wrestlers fitted. I have a pair of 38c Gravel King SK's if you'd rather them.
All the parts except frame and fork were brand new less than a year ago and they haven't seen that much use. The cranks and BB have been ridden less than 5 times.
I also have a custom made Wizard Works x Thomson half frame bag for it which I'm struggling with the idea of letting go but I could be persuaded.

@amey this is the closest you’d ever get to being featured by your idol.
Oof, was fawning over this on Radavist only the other day. Shame it's too small for me. GLWS!
