Although I have always been aware of Cannondale, my first hand introduction was during my present C&V period. If I had to rate my C&V bikes in terms of riding performance, I would have to put my 1987 Blueberry Criterium among the top of the list and, really, only comparable to my 98 Litespeed Ultimate. They are both very stiff sprint bikes and I love the ride. The Blueberry is so responsive that I left the DT shifters on because when I upshift, it's like hitting the next rocket and taking off.
Now, with my recent acquisition of the 90 ST600, my admiration is confirmed. The same feel with the stability of the big tires. I did hill repeats on it today and, although the feel is different, it was still fast.
I may need to collect the entire set: CX, MTB and track drop single speed.
