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
I had one exactly like this in a 56. and I used it to race Crits. It was dressed in Suntour sprint. I still have the parts, but I sold the bike and wheels a long time ago.
