    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?
