Mountain Bike

For sale I have my beloved 2012 Cannondale Flash Ultimate. I originally brought the bike in 2012 for £5500, but as you can see from the photos, she's far from standard now. The bike has just undergone a major overhaul, she was stripped down and rebuilt ready for the new race season (please find a full list of what was done below). This a bit of a reluctant sale, I decided to sell out and move to a 29er, and my misses won't let me keep both. For anyone that loves 26ers or Cannondale's for that matter this is probably by far the best bike money can buy. The bike only weighs in at just over 17lbs, without compromising reliability! I raced this bike last season and completed 8 races on her without any issues. Although, I don't think I ever got remotely close to pushing her to her limits. I would recommend this bike to a real enthusiast or racer, it's a lot of bike, and being a thoroughbred race bike, requires lots of tlc to keep her running sweet. This is by far the best example of a Cannondale Flash I've ever seen, and is a real head-turner. I have spent a lot of time, effort and money to make this happen. Tracking down and hunting things like the FSA K-Force finishing kit in Cannondale green was an absolute nightmare! The carbon wheel set was a one off made by DT Swiss for the 2011 Cannondale Flash ultimate. I managed to part ex my Mavic SLR's (with CSG) for them as they were faulty. They are very very rare. In fact I'm told there was less than ten Cannondale Flash Ultimates imported in to the UK. Note: The cable ties on the top tube are holding the rear brake hose on as it's currently too short. This will be sorted (brake hose made longer and threaded properly) in the next few days, I just wanted to get the bike on the market. Also, the drive chain has got less than 100 miles on it.
