Can Anyone Tell Me Which Cannondale This Is?

I don't know alot about them. Just wondering if its worth riding or what its worth the way it sits. The brake lines go over the numbers on the bottom of the frame and I don't really know what I'm looking at anyways. I figured I could purchase something a little newer but it rides great. Thanks

I'd also lose the dork disk, flip the stem, cut the bars down and put on bar ends. And some toeclips, and a badass seat.

Then you could call it a bad boy.

And a nicer saddle. That saddle must not be comfortable for more than 2 miles!

As for barends, I like any sort of L-bend barends and wrap them with handlebar tape. Gives you a nice, cushy, large diameter gripping surface.

What's your budget? Are you a male or female? Do you do long rides?

Male. I went ahead and changed the tires to 2" because I ride off road also. I normally ride for a hour or 2 at max when I go out. No budget but nothing crazy. Thanks
