I took a whack at recreating a legend. Its comparable to redesigning a camaro. The Cannondale Super V was a legend mountain bike in the mid to late 90's. It proved what could be done. Sadly, it ceased production because many walmart brand bikes stole the design and just made it look cheap and ruined the reputation of the design. Since then, owners have been modifing the shock mounts so they can make a longer travel bike codenamed "Uber V". So, reviving the beast. A new frame and component choice. Only one model made so far, beefier ones to come. This one took me about 5 hours +. I tried tons of different designs and threw them away, restarted from scratch numerous times untill i came up with one that was appealing, practical, had enough rear travel, and would structuraly work.
