My bikes: Cannondale Delta V 2000 1993

back in 1993 I bought a Cannondale Delta V (92 model) from Peter Darke Cycles in Sunderland, this was a fantastic looking bike but this was the early days of full suspension and the rear end bobbed somewhat ...

I kept the bike for a while but decided to move it on to go back to a rigid M600.

Moving forward to 2014 I spotted a top-of-the-range Delta V2000 1993 model frameset for sale on All things Bikes and I decided it would make a great addition to sit alongside my M800 Beast Of The East
