Any info on this frame?

Hi guys, I picked this frame up off a teammate of mine. I was looking for an everyday bike that I can ride the flat singletrack around here on to play around between road seasons, and to maybe race 2-3 cross events a year.

Is it a mountain frame that can double as a cross frame, or is it a true cross frame? The fork would lead me to believe it's a mountain frame, but I've ridden a mountain bike once, so I'm not too knowledgeable about them either.

Thanks!

Well, he was saying he raced cross on it, but it just crossed my mind that it could be a mtn frame with the fork. I did find an advertisment for it being a cross bike though.

Cannondale CX bike

Howdy,

Saw that frame back in 1998-1999. Probably from the same time frame. Cannondale's unique attempt at having a headshok fork on a cross bike. BTW, to answer your question, It is a true 'cross bike. They made a road bike with the same fork too.
