Good stews are cooked over a small flame, and this one’s taken 6 years to be served… That’s what Eric tells us on his Youtube channel, Corner Balanced. Since he acquired the 1992 Cannondale Track Blue Glacier frame, up until it has been finished, 6 years have passed. Five of them were spent looking for the frame, and it took another one to choose the components to go with it, all of them in a nearly perfect condition despite their age.
The full setup, except for the pedals and chain, has been made with original pieces and components from the same time this Cannondale frame was in the market, at the beginning of the 90s. A frame with a simple geometry and a clean look.
Clearly, such a setup was worth of a video. A real DREAM BUILD made by mechanic Evan Cross. Hit the play button and enjoy those 16 minutes of visual caviar.
