    Cannondale trail sl single speed XL

    Posting here b4 craiglist..
    $350 firm cash. No check.
    Low miles. Original owner. Great Walnut bike.
    Stock, except tires and brakes.
    The whatever brakes it came with were horrible so I threw on some bb7s. Oh, also have some Shimano clipless, they're older than the bike.. 959s I think but still Rock solid.. Hans D setup tubeless in front, ardent not tubeless in back.
    This bike has the most beautiful rigid fork. Really a gorgeous bike.
    Height range is probably best at 6'1" to 6'3". Will fit 6'4" but will need longer seat post than the stock, as I did. On that I do have a thompson can sell for extra if needed.

    Is it possible to convert this to a geared setup? I don't see housing stops on the frame, but maybe I'm just missing them...
    When you are a man, sometimes you wear stretchy pants in your room. It's for fun.

    No housing stops. But might be able to add that or just ziptie a full length housing. I'm fairly sure you can swap out a part to put on a hanger in the back, I remember them saying something about that when purchasing, but no telling if Cannondale has it in stock, maybe it's common, I don't have it and would have to Google it to check. The rear hub can also accept a cassette it appears.

    Edit

    Or you could man the F up and ride a singlespeed.

    ^^^Suck it!^^^^

    I actually used to have a single speed when I was 30 pounds lighter and 5 years younger... I miss those days.

    I was looking at the bike for my son who will be going off to college (hopefully) about a year from now. Some of the places he's considering are pretty hilly, so I was thinking gears would be nice...

    I'm interested if you still have the bike.
