marbon, The model is R600. Likely a '96 model. http://vintagecannondale.com/catalog.html

What model? R600 is a.........get ready,....here it comes.......an R600!

If there rear seat stays meet the chain stay before the axle, then I agree,more than likely a 96.

in 97, the frame returned to the traditional design, the seat stays met the chain stays at the axle.

seat stay, bar/tube that comes down from the back of the seat.
chain stay, tube that goes form the pedals back to the rear axle (parallel the chain).




Red arrow: See how it meets before the axle and not at the axle?
