Backtracking Cannondale Tracks is a tricky one. This one’s from Helsinki, where the number of these icons of track bicycle heritage have during months increased heavily. Arriving to Finland from the States via a brief spell in Stockholm a few years back, this particular one was in Oulu for a while. Probably the northernmost ‘Dale on earth, it truly has seen a fair share of use. The funny, and somewhat magical thing with C´dales is that the more they go, the better they look. That’s why we love this one particularly.
