I've seen cannondales from 85 to present and must say they have gone way downhill in appearance in my opinion. In 85 they had a head tube cannondale logo and said cannondale on the top tube - one the left and right. That's it, nothing else. Thru the years they have put more and more unnecessary stupid decals and they now say cannondale like 10 times. The current dales just look stupid with all this stuff. Wouldn't you much rather have a current frame that only had a head tube logo and said cannondale on the top tube (and a single color of paint, not this swooshy decally stuff they are doing)like they were back in the day? I'm not dogging the quality and improvement in the frames, just the decals & # of times they say cannondale.
