    Cannondale R500 - whats it worth? Tell me what you think

    I recently bought this 1995 Cannondale R500 for $40 off craigslist. I am interested to find out about what it is worth. I know I made a good deal but want to know how good of a deal I made. There is one major problem, and that is the bike is a 45cm. At least thats what it says on the frame. Im 6'5 so I dont see myself riding it. But I was wondering if I was going to resell it what would it be worth. I've attached some pictures. Thats for your help!

    sofar.jpg $200 and up from what I see on craigslists. People either love them or hate them. I have a 54cm frame I'm building on (too big lol)-guess I'll find out if I love it or hate it. Well done for 40 beans I would say. Here's where I'm at so far...

    wow well done. yeah $200+. I paid $220 for one not long ago and don't regret it. the problem with yours though is indeed the size. very limited market

    though if you're in texas I actually know someone who is looking for a 46cm bike ha

    $350, assuming ready to ride.XS frame size brings a premium. While the MIT is limited, the supply is even more limited. Sold one like it, Xs, for that price. XS plus STI = premium price.
