Thanks for the compliment Gene, RE: steel bikes, that is EXACTLY what I was saying to myself when I dragged this out of the basement... My guess is that the effects of aluminum on a riders' body are somewhat influenced by how much the individual rider weighs; I am 6' 198 lb and this bike does not shock the heck out of me on longer rides...

Delicious, you are correct. It is a nice, tight 56cm top tube... I'm very impressed w/ the geometry on this old girl...

It is very, very, very mindblowing to look at the dreamy wishlist of parts that Canny was spec'ing their machines with in 1986: http://www.vintagecannondale.com/year/1986/1986.pdf
