Bike Check: Erik Jonsson’s Cannondale Track
Coming off the Keirin 2012 festival last night the bike was geared up for racing and I had the camera with me. So I thought i’d toss up a bike check of the old Cannondale Track 93. Like most dale’s its been doing rounds on the internet every now and then but me personally I never tire of seing or riding them for that matter. This setup is what I train on the velodrome except for the wheels wich is more of a race setup, old and ratty as they are. The Front being a 90’s specialized TT trispoke and the rear is an old italian 80s make restickered fiberglass disc. Fiberglass eventually went out of production as its impossible to recycle and produces a lot of malign factory bi products. neither of these wheels are really appropriate for track racing on the cannondale since the tight chainstay clearence makes the disc rub against them on sprints. The ridiculously tight fork gap scrapes the tire when the rubber heats up and makes it grow slightly. But its damn fast nevertheless. When the bike isnt racing I ride it with a pair of Mavic 32hole quasar tubulars on campagnolo hubs wich fits the frame a whole lot better.
