Cannondale Killer V

I'm thinking of grabbing this C-Dale Killer V bike rigid hardtail.as a new project. No Headshok. Has a Pepperoni Fork. Looks like a Coda crankset
A decent rider? Worth fixing up or breaking down for the parts? Definitely worth the $50 asking IMO.
Who's had one?

Yep, parts alone are worth it. As far as building it, I prefer a traditional steel rigid frame MTB.

Beautiful bike, great deal. I'd greatly prefer that Cannondale to some traditional steel equivalent. Had an earlier non-Headshok hardtail SM500 that I rode off-road from 1986 to the mid-1990's and then used for commuting for 20 years. One of my favorite bikes I've ever owned.

If you buy it, be sure to post it in the Show Your CAAD thread. Lots of Cannondale loyalists there.

Awesome bike, Id grab it for $50. One challenge in keeping as a rider is dealing with the crazy long stem, replacing which is difficult because of the oversize steer tube.

I'd have a hard time turning down rigid, quality MTBs at $50. It's a good thing that I'm not finding any at that price.
