"Needs tubes"

By "needs tubes" does this seller mean tire tubes?

Cannondale 700cm road bike Mens (very light)

Where's the guy that was trying to alter his CF forks with a torch? He'll have this thing good-as-newish in no time.

I presume the seller only mentions it from a sense of duty.

The 700cm thing is quite impressive though.

Don't you guys know there's only two conditions on Craigslist? "Rides great," and "needs work."

That is major corrosion in and on the seat tube, scary.
I like the paint, did not Cannondale do a Campagnolo equipped bike with a very similar color scheme?

A little finger nail polish should fix that right-up.

I thought the two conditions were "like new" and "completely perfect except..."

Looks like they almost cleanly ripped off the integrated derailleur hanger. I'd be nervous about whatever else happened to cause that as well.

What's up with the "horizontal" dropouts? Looks like that would just put a ton of unnecessary stress on the dropout.

The 'dent' in the chain stay was put there by the factory to provide crank arm clearance and doesn't need to be fixed. The hole in the seat tube is another matter.
