    Great photos.

    Quick Question - this bike - is it a Cannondale Gemini?

    Yeah, I remember when they came out. It was a neat concept and reminded me of the thinking behind some of the ewr hardtails of the mid 90s.

    Too bad they didn't stay around longer. Do you know the story?

    I think you can still get them. It's one "kid" who's making them on a very, very limmited basis.
    They look like they can take a beating.
