Forgotten photo...

I took some photos a few weeks back after I attached the final decal.

Only realised now since my camera had to go into service to get some "hot pixels" mapped out...

New seat and cover

Well I had to get rid of the cheap-ass seat and went for a Cannondale Seat.

Found one on eBay last week and it arrived today and looks rather cool with the Cannondale "C" on the side of it.

I'll get it on to the bike at the weekend,

And of course when sifting through the sea of crap that lingers on eBay, I also came across this little gem, an original nylon Cannondale Seat cover.

Oh and sorry for the crap quailty photos, as I explained in the previous mail the Pentax K10D is away for service and I'm relying on the low res camera phone...

Saddle change

I'm thinking of finally getting rid of the cheap ass saddle at long last.

Not sure what to go for yet, naturally I'd prefer a Cannondale seat of some sort but I'll see what I find in the vast wasteland of eBay. Otherwise it's a trip to the LBS for something else.
