Got my 93 Cannondale out for the red bike pictures but had not ridden it in a long time. Saddle was way low but I put 10 miles on it. Bought this six years ago. This was a replacement frame for the sellers father. Had no wheels but set up as a Dura Ace down tube 7-8 speed. I had to clime up into a attic to get and it looked pretty much like new.

Cannondales are gorgeous in my opinion, and I don't need more bikes.. but I want more Cannondales!



Beauty.
The stem looks like it is out past the minimum insertion line? Might want to check that.

Looks fine to me. Those markings are from previous positions its been in and ridden (mild flexing gradually wears off the anodizing). I've had this with a number of (used) stems I've bought. Some black market will tidy things up nicely.

Or he has way better eyes than us. But checking isn't a bad idea.

Or course, but I wasn't looking at the scratches, but how relatively high out of the frame that stem looks. Unless it something like a Nitto Tallux or Technomic....

Maybe I am too used to the "slam that stem" aesthetic.

Iíve been eyeing this bike on the local marketplace for a few months, finally bit the bullet with spring knocking at our door in Canada.

The group is a mix of ultegra/105/tiagra with bontrager race lite wheels.

Thanks! My other bikes have been 80s Japanese touring bikes so in comparison this one is on a different level.

I finally tensioned the rear wheel on my 83 ST. I havenít ridden it in a long time due to the wheel and I am kicking myself now. I really had a great commute today, feels like a rocket, and so smooth! Honestly, this might be my best riding bike.

All of the 80’s ST Cannondales are marvelous riders.
My 88 gets more miles each year than any other bike in the stable.
They travel well, too.

*n00b alert*
Thanks to everyone in this thread I'm the new owner of a neglected but ridable '89 60cm I think SR400. Looks like it got pulled out of a dumpster but has a almost complete 105 group set but the triple crank set is depressing. On the plus side it shifts like butter even though the cables are rusted and I've gotta get some posts under my belt...
