The shifters are like new condition, zero marks. the wheels are bought off ebay and the seller advertised as used for 500miles. Since i have put these on the CAAD, i think i did about 1000miles on them. So plenty of life in them. and has only seen 2 months of wintery roads.

the bike is in pristine condition as I clean it and maintain it well and also due to the fact that most of the components are brand new. there is only a single blemish of the paint work on the top tube of the bike, which i don't know how it got there. but it is shown in the picture series.

I want £850 inc postage for the lot as I have spent a serious amount of money upgrading this bike. it will be a perfect stallion for someone. reason for sale, I have changed job, the new place doesn't have a bike shed, therefore I can't sue nice bikes for commute as the area is notorious for bike theft. I also have another carbon bike which I use for weekend rides so this one is redundant now, and as well as I just don't have room in the flat.

Local pickup @ N1/N16, weekend arrangement in London can be made

If you split I'm interested in the wheels  1

I will keep that in mind. I will run the whole bike for this week and then i will probably split.

In that case bear me in mind for the stem and handlebar  3 I could go pick it up, cheers!

To be pedantic: Black/green isn't Liquigas colours - just Cannondale colours. bLiquigas is a 'brighter' green with blue.

Bet it flies with those upgrades... I have an identical bike (except mine's standard and broken).

it does go up the hills quite nicely. unfortuantly due to my rather wide frontal area,  4 it won't reach a record top speed on the flats. but does make picking it up and lugging it up 8 flights of stairs more tolerable after a long ride.
