Wife's Cannondale

This is my wife's Cannondale M500

She hasn't ridden it all that much but I try to make her happy by changing things on it she does not like.
I just added grip shifters to it because she did not like the xgage triggers that were on there. I still need to get some of those half grips for it because right now it still has the full size grips plus the gripshifters.

I put some drifters on there for her, she has never ridden this bike off rd and I got them fro free from a freind. It's all rigid, so I figured it would make a good bike for her to ride on the bike path. Hopefully when my Son gets a litte bigger she will ride with us.

Awesome old school bike, I love the shape of the M 400/500.

My brother has a black M400, riding that made me get my cannondale all those years ago.

Wow Jordan I didn't see this post until pete commented on it. Sorry. That is a nice bike. No worries I am not going into the men's/women's style because mostly these days it is universal Big Grin
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

I did some work on this bike over the weekend, I put new MTB tires on it and fine tuned the deraillers. I also added some of those ERGON grips. AMAZING GRIPS!
I have a buddy coming into town with his new GF and they want to ride some trails. My wife is pregnant, so no riding for her.
