my cannondale trail SL4

Postby theraggyone » Mon Oct 29, 2012 21:15 pm

Ive been viewing the forum for a few months now and thought it was about time I posted some pictures of my beast , ive been busy upgrading it over the last few months so far ive fitted rockshox Reba rst soloair forks with pushloc,shimano SLX hydrolic brakes , ks dropzone adjustable seatpost with remote,SLX shifters, Easton ea70 high rise monkeybars,SLX rear deraileur,deore front deraileur,octane one pedals, cannondale D3 lockon grips, schwalbe Hans dampf front and nobby nic rear tyres , a superstar 65mm stem being fitted tomorrow and mucky nutz mudguards fitted front and rear. When I brought the bike my intension was to just do a little riding to improve my fitness but ive completely fallen in love with the sport and try to get out everyday
The bike feels amazing now much hetter than it did stock , at the time I brought it I really stretched my budget , but luckily due to a ppi insurance windfall ive been able to afford alot more upgrades than expected and almost turn the bike ninto the sort of spec I was drooling over a few months back, I know its still not the same level as alot of the bikes on here but I love it , hope you like yhe pics.

as hopper stated there muckynutz bender fender and butt fender ,nice and cheap and look about as good as mudguards can .they dont stop all the spray but do stop a good proportion of it while also protecting the stanctions on the forks and stopping soggy bum \wet nuts syndrome:P i got mine from biketart although lots of places stock them

A few new upgrades since my last post iv now fitted a 2x9 slx crankset with bash, slx front deraileur and a 180mm front disc :-) seems all I need to do now is the wheelset , qr skewers , headset , frame ,seatclamp and rear disc and its a completly new bike lol. Rides real nice now well chuffed with the 2x9 crank 22t and 36t is perfect for me:-)

Quick question and I don't want to come across as thick lol , the original suspension on the bike was RST ? when you up graded the suspension what else did you need to upgrade to accommodate the upgrade if anything ?

I didnt have to upgrade anything else my cannondale had a standard 1 1/8 headset so I got a reba with the same steerer size.it was a great upgrade for the bike completely changed it for the better suspension wise and really lightened the front end

It was a 31.6 mm ks dropzone mate. Really liked the post but it was the wrong size for my new bike so I now run a rockshox reverb . I think I prefered the ks dropzone though the remote is just loads nicer lol
