    Help me ID this red anodized crank?

    Came off an old Cannondale, no markings that I can see. Any ideas?

    Though come to think of it, it looks a bit like a Grafton. Are the backs of the pedal eyes open or closed?

    The backs of the pedal eyes are closed. When I just went to check that I noticed a topline sticker on the bike. So it looks like it's a topline.

    Ok now show us the bike. Looks like the rims match the crank and are tubulars.

    I really want one; but... I have a feeling that I would shear the spider off the first big hill I tried to climb.


    And that would sting like crazy.

    Toplines are light and look sexy but tend to break.

    re: tubulars--i don't know i forgot to check (not home now). I assumed they were clinchers,,, they looked like clinchers.. i hope they're clinchers! i was looking forward to using these on a future red and green xmas themed build for myself (jk). i will have to check again when i'm home.

    Interesting bike! Thanks for the full picture and added information.

    I may be totally wrong about the clincher but it didn't look like much height on the outside edge so I was guessing Tubulars.

    I dont recall seeing that set up in the catalogs. I doubt the rims and cranks are original to the bike.

    http://www.vintagecannondale.com/ has some info on dating the frame. The frame is 89-96 I'm guessing thats a 95-96.

    Mid 90's they had a frame model for every group. I know a R800 in 98 was full 105SC 8speed including hubs and brakes with Wolber rims (I think). R1000 was 600 tri color/Ultegra (packaging had both names on it) then 2000 was DuraAce and 3000 was Campy. Then it went all they way down to Rx100 on the low end. Id guess that to be 19lb in stock trim and with the upgrades you maybe under 18 with what you got.

    Throw it in the Cannondale thread.
