    Is this worth it?

    sale-x6psm-1325326917@craigslist.org

    I would like to find a nice original steel bike, this one seems to fit the bill. Any input would be great, thanks.

    I wouldn't wait too long. Looks like a nice clean bike. If it's your size and in good condition, I'd say go for it. The price appears fair, but always try to negotiate down.

    The price seems fair, but we don't know what componets are on it other then Shimano, but which Shimano? I was never a fan of Peugeot's because the frames were always noodly, but if your not going to be riding hard or into mountains then it would be fine. I would offer $100 cash.

    We can't tell from the photos. It looks about 54 to 56cm to me. Ask the seller to measure it.

    How the hell are we supposed to know.

    Go try it and if it fits and isn't all busted up buy it and ride it.

    It's a nice bike. Or pretty nice. Well I used to own the one like it but a couple years older and I liked it. If it were here in Tampa and my size and I wasn't already loaded down with more road bike than I have any use for I'd buy it.

    I kind of doubt that bike will fit. In my experience, Cannondales run BIG for the size. So a 56cm Cannondale is going to be quite a bit larger than a medium frame from another manufacturer.

    Really? You mean the modern frames? I had an old 3.0, and the 58cm fit more like a 56/57. They measured the frame c-t, BB to top of seat tube, which had an extended mast.

    I kind of assumed it was an older Cannondale, since this is the Classic and Vintage forum. I do not have any experience with newer Cannondales.

    I had a 1987 Cannondale T600, in a 23 inch frame. It had a standover that was 1 1/2 inches higher than my 1987 Miyata 215 in a 23 inch frame. The Cannondale was also as tall as my 1983 Fuji Touring Series IV (24 inch frame).

    As I recall, that 23 inch Cannondale was measured C to C. I no longer have the bike, so I can't double check it. I believe the Miyata 23 inch is C to T.

    I just picked up a 1985 T500 with a 21 inch frame. We'll have to see how it sizes up.
