orginially came with a very large 6, but I spread the rear to accept a 7 speed ( plan on trying 8 ). 14-34 on back and 48-44-30 on front

Hey Elad, that's a nice looking bike. That looks very much like a 12 spd Cannondale bike that I bought off CL. It has no model name on it and the seller didn't know what model it was.

It has all Shimano 600, Mistral 27" wheels and a Selle Royal saddle. Does yours have ST 400 written on it?

didn't know about the sizing being on the seat stay. Just checked it's 23". I knew it was too big for me, now it's confirmed :-(

How do you know it's an ST 400? thanks

EDIT: also you added bar-ends (?) correct?

yes, Shimano 105 barcons. I also put fenders another water bottle cage, and a handlebar bag this afternnon, I can't stop tinkering. Now I have an excuse to buy some new panniers.
