After the debacle of selling the Giant disc SS to pay for my cracked zipps then changing my mind about rebuilding them and subsequently regretting immensely selling the Giant, i had a bit of cash burning a hole in my pocket.
But sometimes things happen for a reason i guess
Enter, the Capo commuter.
I had been eyeing one for a while now, but its either been interstate, not the right size or i had just missed out. When this one popped up on gumtree i jumped. Only problem was it was listed at a price that belonged in the ‘Optimistic’ thread
So after making a more realistic offer (which was about half his asking price) i was able to talk him into letting it go, it was still more then id want to pay, but knowing these things dont come around often, in my size, local, and in pretty good nick, i bit the bullet. Lucky i had a bit of spare cash in my pocket

Good question, think its meant to be an actual track geometry frame thats also suited to street use. Although the single set of bidon holes on the ST makes no sense.
some catalogue dribble
Hit the boards or the mean urban streets in style aboard Cannondale’s Capo. This boss bike sports Cannondale’s light, stiff CAAD5 aluminum frame with understated styling that’s equally at home blowing by competitors in the velodrome or handling start-and-stop traffic. A flip-flop hub lets you choose from a fixed-gear (no coasting!) or singlespeed setup depending on the ride. Plus, the Capo sports brakes and drop bars for greater versatility and plentiful hand positions. So whether you’re in the bike lane, the fast lane or the sprinter’s lane, the Capo rides it in grace and style
cheers H, yeah, eyeing off a silver wheelset, archetypes to phils would be nice, but $$. I know of set aeroheads to phils that i think would be reasonably priced, or a set of archetypes to formulas from velomine. Theres a local dude selling a set of TB14s to formulas for 2 hunge-ish…but i dunno if i like box sections on it.
