Only one picture. What size is this and is it an ST?

Just like above, I know it's a cannondale (obviously) it looks to be one of the touring models, hopefully st something or other.
most importantly what's the size? Guesstimation of course. The rider is 5'7" and it looks to be around 56cm which is too small for me.
am I right or am I lucky and its maybe bigger?

Although head tube appears lengthy, the frame looks small in relation to the wheels and in comparison to the other bike. Might be a 56 but could be 54 to my eye.

On a C'dale, the distance between thr top tube and downtube on a 54 is very tight, because of the oversize tubes, I bet thats a 58.

Looks about the same size as my 58cm Synapse.

I believe the 2 mounts for a bottle cage on the tube are 6.35 cm apart. Using that spacing you can figure it out. My guess is 58-60.

I agree I( think at least 58 maybe closer to 60. It seems to have cantilever dropouts, and I thought by then most of the touring models had cantilever brakes and 3 bottle bosses?

Sorry, back tire looks too close (even at the horrible camera angle) to be an ST.

It's a big frame, a 58 or 60. Might even get you into L'Eroica if it's an '87, which it may be.

Aluminum frames are not permitted at L'Eroica, with only a few very specific exceptions.
That's an early 90's SR type, looks like 105 or RX100 components.
Pretty solid bike, but this one needs some love. Might be a replacement front fork.

think he is right I own a 1989 st 600 great bike . The back wheel should be further back and also not sure of that year bike. But if it was a st think it should of had another set of water bosses on the bottom of the bike as mine does.as for size turn bike and look on the bottom think the first numbers in the serial number were the size they went with inches back then tho

Front brake looks like BR-1050, which would say pre 1990 aka pre-SC 105. Front hub is definitely not, while rear one might be. Shifters might be aswell, difficult to say about both.
___________________________

I would be pretty cautious about an aluminium bike that might have whole front wheel and fork (I'm not into Cannondales, so can't say for sure, but afaik it shouldn't be ahead for the early 90s era?) replaced. Not saying it can't be all good and a nice deal, just area that might be worth closer inspection.

Thanks all!
60cm would be great but 58 or lower is no go.
i really want an st. It is that long wheel base that i was hoping for!
oh well, they aren't responding to messages anyhow.

Head tube decal definitely puts it into the 90's.
Not an ST.
Might be a 60cm frame.
Front fork obviously a replacement from some much taller bike, look at the stack of spacers!
Definitely a pass.

Buellster- I happen to have a fork from a mid 90s R500 and likely same size frame. It's not red however.
