    cannondale 2000

    Hello,

    I'm looking to buy a used bike and I'm going to see tomorrow a used Cannondale for $250. The guy said he 'thinks' it's a 2000, and didn't answer my question about the year. I checked and the Cann. 2000 is an expensive (at leats for me!:-) ) touring bike, and the pics I saw on the web don't look like the pic the guy posted. Can someone help me out identifying it? Thanks so much!!! The ad and pic are below.

    ---RIDE HOME. VERY CLEAN FRAME. 27-SPEED INDEX SHIFTING THAT SHIFTS FLAWLESSLY. 700C TIRES ARE THICK ENOUGH TO GO FAR BUT NOT TOO THIN FOR UGLY CITY ROADS. FINANCIAL DISTRICT. MADE IN USA. I AM 5'9" BUT SHOULD FIT SOMEONE A BIT SMALLER OR TALLER.--

    From the posted picture it looks a little short for a T2000 (and I'm not sure they made T2000s in the late 80's). It looks to me more like one of the old road bikes with the a 2.8 frame from around 1989. The touring bikes from the late 80s were T600 or T700, I think. Best way to check would be to measure the chainstays. They should be about 18" from the middle of the crank to the middle of the rear wheel. The 2.8 frame is very stiff...even stiffer than the modern touring bikes. If it's too short, the ride will suffer.

    Thanks so much for your answer. It's great! Now the guy says he meant it's from the year 2000, but he doesn't know which model. I've been looking and it looks like you're right, this bike must be from 1989 or before, since the cannondale bikes from after that have the logo on the lower/vertical tube.

    Again, thanks!
