Cannondale Caad3?

Hello everyone. I'm looking to buy a road bike, and a local seller is selling this Cannondale Caad3. I'm quite new to the bike world, so I'd like to ask you whether this is a good bike. I'm trying to get some info on what brand/models the shifters and brakes might be, but I haven't gotten a reply just yet. Will update the post when I do. Any info or tips you might have are greatly appreaciated!

Caad3 is not a model, its a frame design. Cannondale used the same frame across their product line for several years. So Caad3 tells you very little. Value and models were differentiated by the components on the bike, hence the brand models of shifters and brakes.

I'd ask the seller for more information, as everything will be clearly marked.

Thank you for that info! I should be able to post some pictures soon.

EDIT: I've uploaded pictures here: Is this '97 Cannondale Saeco Caad3 worth it?
