1989 Cannondale SR300 with Criterium 3.0 aluminum frame

I want to read your expert opinions on this bicycle. Please tell me how much it is worth in your area then if you can, in Toronto, Canada. It would be helpful to suggest a price for the frame and the fork along with the price of the whole complete bicycle.


1989 Cannondale SR300 racing bicycle with Criterium 3.0 aluminum racing frame ( 57cm to 58cm). The frame color is teal. The frame is hand crafted, heat treated, and is very light as mentioned in the catalog.


SPECIFICATIONS

SIZE
57cm to 58cm seat tube length (low bicycle with low stand over height).
I am 5.5 feet tall and while standing flat feet on the bike, my groin touches the frame comfortably and I managed to ride it for a long time. You should be comfortable if you are 5.9 feet?

250-300 in my area (edit: like wrk says, this assumes overhaul and ready to ride). Frame/fork around 100. Probably wind up going a bit less (lotsa paint damage), and this assumes no dents nor cracks, not unusual in Cannondales of this vintage (check headtube area, bottom bracket and rear drops). Cracked or dented, frame value 0$. Parts, somewhere around 100 alone, maybe a bit more if sold bit by bit at swap meets, ebay, etc.

In current condition, $125 around here. Dirty, torn saddle, frame scraped up a lot (typical for Cannondale), ding in the rim (would need to check the rest of it), Suntour Blaze components (not so hot), etc.

All polished up, looking sharp, fresh tires, new cables, some selective touchup, $225.

58cm frame is usually large for someone 5-7. Realize even though that is 2 inches taller than you, someone two inches taller is not usually going to have 2 inch longer legs.

BTW, I have that same exact bike.

Toronto is a hotter market, so adjust my figures up.

In Portland (expensive used bike market) about $200 if everything functions with no damage. Older Cannondale road bikes don't get much respect, this one has low-end components, the paint is kind of thrashed, and it looks dirty and neglected. A meticulous cleanup/polish and servicing would help a little, but I still don't see that bike getting $300 here. Frame and fork alone - $100 or less.

You don't have to take it all apart, and you don't have to use CLR. I use "Totally Awesome". Sells at the various dollar stores for $1. Works great. Get a tooth brush and a rag, and go to work. For areas with heavy grease, use some WD40 to loosen it up first.

Taking it all apart is a fair amount of work, and requires a pile of specialized bike tools.

No need to take it apart. Water, dish soap, sponge, rag will work. Cleaners like Simple Green will too. Don't use anything too harsh that might hurt the decals. Don't scrub with anything abrasive like a green-backed sponge scrubber. Don't aim hose stream right at bearings. Get cable housings, bar tape, hubs, chain etc all nice and clean. Then you can oil it - or maybe not, let the buyer deal with that, but at least spray some WD40 on the chain to prevent rapid rusting. Make sure everything works - brakes, shifts, tires full, etc - so that it makes a good impression on the test ride. Get it sold before winter, when bikes are worth less.

i dont know - i know the paint is rough but around CJ - you can probably get at least 300 and maybe 400 without breaking a sweat for an aluminum cannondale roadie - btw - i think they ride pretty nice too - they sometimes sell cheap too on CL - but then they are gone in a flash
