2004 Cannondale R800 and the R1000(4 posts)

2004 Cannondale R800 and the R1000K-Man
Aug 14, 2003 8:08 AM
I have a 2002 Cannondale R900 that I was planning on selling and getting a new Cannondale.
Any info on these wheels on the R800?

Hubs Gipiemme Grecal Parade
Spokes Gipiemme Grecal Parade

The R1000 has tried and trued components, but the color is a little hidious (sp?) It comes in black as well, but black is one of my least favorite colors as well.

(can't afford the R2000)

I saw the 2004 bikes online, too. I agree with the color schemes: they are pretty bad except for the R2000.

Unless you are really itching for a new bike ( toys are nice), have you considered just doing a wheel upgrade on your current bike, and maybe a couple of components here and there?

And if anybody has not seen the 2004 Saeco Team Replica that is for sale, including matching Cinelli Ram, check it out (no price listed, but it will certainly cost a lot).
c'mon, you gotta get the Leopard or Spider paintjob!! nm.Sao

I been looking for a road bike and really liked the R1000. However, I hated both the bright Yellow/Green and the Black. Then I saw one...I think. I was at my LBS and they had a F600 in a very similar color. It had a pearlesant (sp?) effect which gave it a wonderful look. I'm now hoping to get one in a triple.
