Got it already, but thanks for the good advice. 👍 I found the pdf & downloaded it yesterday, and got them dialed in now. 😎

I'm liking this bike more and more, as I ride it more. Just need to upgrade a few things, and lube everything, lol. 😁

How do these aluminum forks holdup? Anyone use the 1 1/4 to 1 1/8 adapter headset?
Use a magnet on the fork. I think it may be steel. I could be wrong though.

Pretty sure it's a 1 inch steel fork and well able to be ridden if it is not damaged.
1inch is all that will fit.
I put a full carbon fork on my Caad 3 and it was an improvement but my original fork was very heavy allu.

Wish it was steel. And it takes an oversized quill stem with a 1 1/8 diameter. No damage. Guess I'll build it and find out how it rides.

Early to mid-90s, they had a thing for oversized head tubes (not even counting Headshoks & their predecessors). My Killer V takes a 1 1/4" threadless headset. 🙄 I can definitely see that yours is bigger than 1", but it's not that obvious to most folks, until they get used to what they're seeing. 😉

Wow I didn't know such a thing existed.
Leaves you with a lot of options in the future if you need it.

Here's my Cannondale CAAD5, built up this year with Potenza 11 speed. Frame is a 66cm, but measures 69cm CTT. I've wanted this bike, for a long, long time...

Another 66cm Cannondale (a CAAD5 at that!) on the record! Looks great. Wish I didn't mind stretching out a tad more than I usually do over a frame to fit a 66. Alas, 63cm for me, but always a fan of seeing sweet large 'Dales.

Thanks for noticing! It's a fun bike and it actually fits me for a change. Not many options these days for us folks with tall stilts, and the supply of 66cm 'dales seem to be drying up.

You're welcome! At 6'5" the top tube, per my preferred reach, is 1cm too long, and making up for it with short stems/bar reaches just ends up looking a little weird, proportionally. Starting in 1989, the 66cm road frames were available, and thankfully continued well into the CAAD era as you have an example. I've seen pictures of another, I think, CAAD5 and it looks great. 27" touring frames were of course available a little bit earlier than 1989 and I don't see many of those at all. Maybe I'll find another 66cm frame to build and ride...I sold my 1989 SR800 frameset to a friend and he's building it up. Fits him perfectly.

I just acquired a 1986 Cannondale SR400 White today. I'll post a picture once I hit the elusive 10 posts.
Needs some work, but for now I'm just going to attach a cloud 9 seat & look into some tires.
Seems like everything on the bike is still stock besides the saddle.
Looking forward to having it torn down this spring & completed re-done.
