    CANNONDALE track bike colors / years ?

    Hey!

    I'm interested to know the chronological order of Cannondale's track bikes. You have the blue one, the green one, the plain one and I just saw a black one on eBay.

    When were they produced?

    Anyone else think the new ones are ugly & too expensive?

    New ones have too mnany decals. My favourite is still the silver/chrome one - that one guy rides in Chicago as a Potbelly's messenger - he's got a beautiful one.

    The blue ones and green ones were made in the 90s(mid to late I think). This is just an observation but most of the blue ones I've seen tend to be larger sizes and the green ones are smaller sizes. I think the polished ones were made a little later, maybe late 90s, and there don't seem to be many of them around. The newer ones have only been around for a couple years, and yeah, I think it would benefit from a simpler paintjob/not so many stickers. Have only heard about the black "messenger" frame...

    I have a blue one and love it. However there's no way I'd spend four bills on a beat up used one, aluminum just doesn't last that long.

    definatley, recent cannondale track bikes are horrific!
    I had late 90s (blue) for a while and got rid of it, stretched aluminum feels like craps and dents waaaay too easily

    Blue frames came out first in the early 90's (92-93) time frame it was set up with Suntour Suprepe Pro Group and 32 hole tubular rims . All others are after and some came with thinner oversize tubing not like the Blue frames.

    S/F,
    CEYA!

    Thanks for all the info!

    But the black Cannondale track bike that I saw on eBay was here:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...sPageName=WDVW

    It looks like the older ones but it's black with red letters. Nice!!

    That is the old frame, my guess is someone repainted it and got new decals.
