    Cannondale Question

    Well, I recently purchased a Sprint CAAD 8. Not sure what year it is. I purchased it new as it was hanging from the window and as he said, it was just put together two months ago. Its all black, 105 Front Derailleur Ultegra Rear. Slice Aero front fork. Everything addes up to the 07 Sprint CAAD8. But what is irritating me is he told me it was an 08 model. He had it marked at 1699.99 it was on sale for 1499.99 I ended up giving him 1100 cash. I was looking at a trek he had it was a trek 1.2 but sold, and that was the last of his 09 treks. He has to wait for the 2010's to come in now. I had asked him about the Cdale in the window, particularly due to it being american made. So is my bike truly an 07? Or Did they actually make a CAAD8 Optimo 1 W/ Slice Aero forks in 08?[IMG][/IMG]

    From my research, it is an 06. The 07 had a CAAD9 frame, Slice Ultra fork (not aero) and 105 front and rear derailleurs. The 08 Catalog has no tri-specific models.

    You Nailed it right on the nose! It turns out it was MFD Feb of 06. That really irritates me! I thought I could trust this guy! If he was just a salesmen, i could understand, but coming from the owner of the store?!

    The owner of the store is just a better salesman...

    Is the Sprint not a popular bike? I don't really see any reviews on it out there.
