I got this frame from my uncle. I have searched Cannondale's "Vintage site" with no luck. I was hoping someone could help shed some light on this for me.
-the head sticker says this bike came from the 2000-2006 era.
-the "cannondale" sticker is vertical... never seen that before
-there no serial number underneath the bottom bracket part of the frame
-it has vertical drop out.
-fits 700 wheels, with a cantilever rear brake setup.
can anyone tell me anything about this frame>? year name etc.

o! steer tube is one inch threadless and the paint scheme seems like the models in 2000

Saeco is an old European racing team so would not mind betting that this is just a special paint job on a standard model of the era when Saeco were racing.

Cool, a CAAD4* 'cross bike!
*Was it the -4 that had those extended dropouts?
The cantilever studs are, of course, for cantilever brakes (unless they're for V-brakes), the two cable runs under the downtube are more commonly associated with road shifter/derailleur setups, and the rear brake cable on top of the top tube -- instead of underneath -- means that it's meant to be carried on the shoulder.
... Well, that's my guess, anyway. ;) Maybe the lack of SN# means it's a team or prototype bike.
