    Please help with this 1986 Cannondale SR600!?!?

    Hello, I am looking for a decent, entry level road bike, and came across this on craigslist. I am a novice/beginner, but would appreciate someone's help on identifying if this is really a 1986 SR600 Cannondale, and/or what it would be worth. Would like to make some slight modifications to it, but would only invest the time and effort if the bike was worth it. Also, do you know if it is possible to convert to a singlespeed freewheel? I doubt it has a horizontal dropout (for a vintage) so any help/input would be great! Thank you.

    'All original parts' means its going to need tires, bar tape and cables. Add $50 onto the $200 and your at $250.

    If you the end user and everything else is OK, $200 plus parts is a little on the high side. Try for $150-175.

    I bet it will sell at that price in Chicago, although as Jim pointed out, you will need to put some money into it to make it road worthy. I don't think Cannondales make good fix gear/single speed bikes. You are better off with a bike with a steel frame and long horizontal dropouts IMHO.

    I would look for bikes with descriptions such as "ready to ride", or "recently serviced". Everything original means needs service.
