It had all the muscle on it. It looked crazy. Does anyone know where I can find one? I really want one.
I thought about getting one... years ago...Akirasho

... my understanding was, it was a very limited production... and that was a few years ago, so the odds of finding one... and in your size, are kinda remote... however, an email to Cannondale and/or a visit to a local dealer might give you some leads (and, of course, eBay).

... course, if you want to be really unique at your next club outing, try this one...

He looks like a dork with those shoes on. Ruins the appeal of the photo.

Wearing a skinsuit while training, is a "fred" thing. If you wore a skinsuit like that, in a race, you might just win. Not because you are fast, just because nobody else could get off the line.

How does wearing a skinsuit while training make you a "fred"? I wear mine all the time while I'm training for TTs. I believe in training with my racing equipment before I race to ensure that it all works okay. That goes for my clothing too, it seems like bad planning to find out on race day that your skinsuit doesn't fit/work as expected.
During certain phases of my training I will go full race gear which includes helmet, skinsuit, shoe covers and aero bottle to complete a measured 40k run. I do this to assess my performance and to see how I am progressing towards my goals. I want to be as close to race conditions as I can replicate. Does this make me a "fred" too?

you better be going damn fast. Can't you just picture some guy on his 5900 with a postal skinsuit at 12 mph.
I've never had a problem with a skinsuit not fitting/working. I wear it in both TT's and crits, so it gets lots of use every year.

Coincidentally, I was looking on the net just today for nokon cable extension and stumbled across this link - I had to try and retrace my cyber-steps to be able to find it again.
