My New Bike!


I had been saving up for the Giant Defy 1, but I had also been looking on Craigslist religiously.  I was checking Louisville, Lexington, Cincinnati, Bloomington, Indianapolis, and Muncie’s each day (several times a day actually).  There had been many that I had attempted to purchase to no avail, with each being sold before I could even get a response from the seller.  This one…  Not the case.  I had to get up early and head to the Cincy area to beat out the other buyers.  It’s mint!

This is a 2002 Cannondale R400.  It’s an entry level bike, but like I said, I’m saving up for the Defy 1 still.  This will just hold me over until then.  Here are the specs:
