    Cannondale T700 Touring Bike. Worth The Money?

    I found this bike on CL and can't settle on whether I think it's worth the money. Yesterday I thought it was, but I've slept since then. It comes with no saddle or pedals. When I first looked at it with the Brooks I thought it was definitely worth the money.

    Beautiful bike. Looks to be in great condition. Cannondale touring bikes seem to hold their value better than the others. I personally think the Cannondales of that era are underappreciated. Here in Portland, that bike would sell pretty readily at that price. Not sure about where you are.

    I bought one on ebay a few months ago. There wasn't much interest in it and I got it for around $300, including shipping. These are extremely nice bikes. I was impressed by the paint and frame detail and workmanship. If you look at the bike, check the top tube cable guides. These are plastic, easy to break and no longer available. At one time, they were available from Cannondale, but not now.

    Even without the saddle, pedals, etc. I would say yes. If it fits you go for it.

    +4 - Offer $350 and I'm sure you'll walk away with it.
