    Cannondale Super V 2000 Freeride... What To Do..?

    So, my friend gave me his '99 Cannondale Super V2000 Freeride to 'get rid of'... I'm wondering what this thing is worth..? I see some crazies trying to sell theirs for $1k+, but I know this bike is probably not worth that... Especially with how much the industry has changed since this bike as come out..
    Anyway, it has the Magura yellow hydraulic disc brakes, the Hedshock Moto, XT, and XTR mix on it, along with Coda... What should I price this thing at, $500? I was thinking maybe Ebay is the way to go, with no reserve.. But, then comes the whole shipping thing. I have access to some supplies for shipping, but I'd hate to have this minter of a bike get damaged in shipping. Maybe throw it on a pallet? That would cost $100 (most likely). Anyway, any insight on this? Anyone interested in it? Let me know.

    Thanks,

    Sean

    Go to your LBS and get a bike box. It's kind of a joke...the SV FR was pretty pimp in its day. IMO was a good thing for the bike scene. There's no way I'd push that thing around now though. If it's truly "mint"...it's probably worth more than $500 to the right person. It's still a heck of a lot better than a Wally World bike. How 'bout pics other than this 'pedia-pic?

    Yeah, that's the bike, except this one's the color of the green bikeapedia pic... I'll post actual pics when I get home.

    Ah, boy, does that bring back memories. I loved the Super-Vees.

    The Moto dual crown was an interesting fork. It ran on needle-bearing bushings as I recall; simple and completely user-serviceable; although I think I also recall the bearings being susceptible to cracking and locking the fork. It's supposed to have a 5-position adjustable damping.

    Funny how that Moto fork is actually 1/2 of the current Lefty today...

    No, what he means is the Lefty runs on basically the same needle bearing design pioneered in the Moto. C'dale's reasoning is that the system helps impart enough structural rigidity to make the single strut work.
