Cervelo Prodigy

Purchased this 2002 Cervelo Prodigy frame without fork a couple of weeks ago and noticed it used Ritchey dropouts in the rear so decided to go with Ritchey fork ,seat post ,stem and bars with a Veloce/Mirage drive train. DA/Open Pro wheels.
Very agile yet comfortable ride.

Nice!!!! I always liked the Prodigy frames. I really wanted one of the black Super Prodigy frames when they came out but I opted for a Calfee instead.

Wouldn't mind getting one now after seeing yours.

It is a Specialized cage, came with the frame. Just plastic with red rubber suspension band at the opening but it matched the frame well so I kept it.
Does the job well.

Ritchey fork

Is that a 1 inch? I've been considering one for my old Waterford, but I cannot find much in the way of reviews online.

+1 I still have a pic of a black/red one that was for sales 10 years ago that I wanted.

There is something about the name "Cervelo" and/or maybe their styling that draws people in.

Great looking bike!

Yes it's a 1" and I'm very very pleased with it. The Cervelo is an agile aggressive frame and the fork compliments well, especially on descents.
