Here's an album with a few more pictures: http://imgur.com/a/0hsKD
Looks like a Specialized Sirrus. Specialized used the Sirrus name on a line of road bikes in the early 1990s(?). It was dropped after a few years, then the name came back for use on their hybrid bikes. Not a high end or low end bike, but should b a nice rider.

Cool. Mind if I ask - how can you tell? I've been looking at the old catalogs and they seem identical in frame to me.

How did i do with this one? Found it at a goodwill for $250 but manager let me take it for $150. Only think i know is that is a Miyata and probably size 54 or 56 (perfect for me) and all components are shimano 105


Can someone tell me if they recognize the model or year?

Looks like a 60cm frame from the picture. Nice bike and components for $150. It says 914 right on the top tube. So there's your model number.

That's a Miyata 914, sez so right on the top tube! Miyata's are well build bikes and 105 is cool too, so at 150$ you probably have a very nice rider on your hands.

The serial number will give the year of manufacture and there is a collection of Miyata catalogues online that will tell you more about your bike. Use the Googleator to find SN and catalogues.

That's like a near-twin (but slightly smaller frame) of my old Bianchi, which was the first road bike I ever owned that actually fit me properly. It was a fine bike!

Nice! A solid rider, i'm sure. I was pretty shocked to find this one in still new condition. Looking forward to dialing it in and riding,,

My new 1986 Raleigh technium 460, Craigslist for $150. Not cheap, but after watching the CL market here and NY for months, I think it's a great deal for a metropolitan area! A lot lighter than my old Peugeot, and never having ridden with drops before, it's taking a bit of time to be completely comfortable, but loving the bike regardless!

This won't be a classic ride for long. I bought it for the components. 1986 Cannondale SR800 with mostly Campy components. Phil hubs, Rally RD, Super Record crank, Cinelli stem and bars, Specialized pedals, San Marco Laser saddle.

weird bag of nice components, that is. Nice frame too, any special edition or just a run of the mill early C'dale?

I'm certainly no Cannondale expert, so I can't really say how special it might be. The SR800 was behind the SR900 and SR1000 in their road bike lineup in 1986. Interestingly enough, complete SR800 bikes came with a SunTour Superbe Pro group, while the SR900 came with Nuovo Record. The SR1000 was built with Dura-Ace. I would have preferred the Superbe Pro over the NR components, at least given what I know now. Not apparent in this picture is that there is a big chunk of paint missing on the seat tube, perhaps two or three inches high, all the way around the tube. In the picture it's still covered by the electrical tape it came with. I also realized the one picture I posted was utter crap, so I updated the post with the other three pictures I took last night.

When I tore it down today I discovered it also has a Phil bottom bracket, so I'll be using part of my Amazon birthday gift card to get the correct wrench and migrate it to my Redcay. The crank arms are mismatched (both date and size), but are in great shape. Hopefully I'll be able to swap the 165mm left arm for a 170. Oh, and it has a Super Record headset.

Funny that when I went to buy my first real road bike I had the option to pick up a Nishiki Competition that was Cyclone equipped or the Pro that was NR equipped... my shop owner and mentor said the Cyclone equipped bike was the nicest shifting he had ever seen and the Superbe only took this a step better.

Superbe Pro is probably as good as it gets from the friction shifting era... Dura Ace and NR could not touch it.
