Aluminio doesn't rust ? Or is the rust coat the protective coat ? Maybe we have some wrong concept to explain some situations

it oxidises same as steel but the aluminum oxide doesnt flake off and helps protect from more corrosion

Got bored so mullet'ed the Demo Smile

I'll do it properly with some 49 Lowers or borrow my buddy's 29 inch world cups. I think it will work well on this bike as the Bottom Bracket is too low in my opinion.

No sure. I wouldn’t ride it like this as the fork arch is too close to the tire for my liking. I’ll do it properly and ride it for sure.

Once sagged, I think it will still be a pretty low BB

Don't know about the orange chainring, sort of the wrong tone...was one it replaced black? If not maybe black would be better make the frame pop... still one of the best around.

this is my 2008 Cannondale perp 3 it's not one of those new shiny bikes but in a way it's very shiny it is pretty much mint condition very little scratches on it and I've been riding it now for about a year and a half.
