    96 cannondale SR500

    Picked this up at the flea market yesterday. Mint frame and slightly crusty components but they should clean up nicely. Plan to do a basic rebuild with new tires, chain and cables. Otherwise shouldn't require much work. Thinking I might need a shorter stem, not sure how hard that will be to find for the Headshok. Anybody have/had one of these? How did you like it?
    Thanks, Mike

    You can turn the stem around and have it pointing up for a little more comfort / less reach.
    Clunker or not, it's gotta have gears!

    Nice bike! I have the same frameset and love the Headshok for a road bike. For a new stem, go to ebay and search "Headshok stem." I just got 40+ hits. Make certain you know the correct bar diameter before you buy.

    Nice grab! You just never know where an SR will turn up. My friend's neighbor had an old SR600 crit series that was almost given to him.

    Enjoy!
    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.
