newbie, scored a cheap frame+, figuring out next steps.
Hey all, first post!
Mountain biker back in the day, had my bike stolen in college and couldn't afford to replace it.
Moved to the city, bought a commuter, and have been commuting on it when it's not raining.
So today I scored a nearly complete Cannondale R600, slightly older model. Only missing wheels and rear cassette, other than that it's complete. Paid a mere $50, figured I'd try out a road bike since I'm commuting daily on my Marin Larkspur. I'm trying to find a cheap wheelset locally so I can get it up and running, needs the rear der cable replaced (it's cut halfway through!) and I'm figuring I should just replace them all while I'm at it.
Other than that, a lot of cleaning up, a bit of corrosion removal, and I'll have my first road bike. Can't wait!
Anyone know what year this might be from? Purple and black color scheme.
R600 Racing, shimano 105's all around, alloy fork, everything moves fairly smoothly, but it's all getting baths, rubdowns, and greasing.
Any advice appreciated, I'll hit specific forums later when I have more specific questions.
