Seems we're lacking the oh-so-shiny polished R900. 1995, IIRC.



It didn't suit me personally, but a great bike.

Anyway, the bike is long gone. Current owner can handle the daily polish. HA. Joke's on that guy!

'99 R4000, NOS condition with chromallusion jade paint. Shots taken at odd angles in low sun to showcase the color trnasition. From any one perspective it normally all looks one color, that being anything from a deep green to an iridescent gray:

Shiny! Did you keep it that clean all these years, or did you do a repaint/PC somewhere in the recent past?

One does not simply ride a Cannondale Criterium in a casual manner.

I'm likely going to look at an 89 "not in the catalog red and white paintjob" SR400 on Friday. It's a 66cm, which is great for me, and I have an almost new Sprint group with wheelset to replace the Exage LX currently on it.

I can't post pics of mine yet. I'm a techno idiot, so I'll need to get my grandson to help me out. I bought a Cannondale SR400 about 18 months ago off Craigslist. The fellow I bought it from had rode it a couple of times and decided it was too big for him and it sat in his garage for ten years. His wife convinced him to get rid of it. He had it tuned up, new tires and brakes, new wraps on the bars . I got it really cheap and love it. As near as I can tell from s/n and visual clues, it appears to be a '92, but I'm not sure and don't really care. It's perfect for me.

I stripped a little more paint off the old 92 M500 yesterday. I have an 88 decal set I've had for years, but it's white. It will disappear against the polished finish. Time to order another decal color, or give it a nice paint job, or both.,,,BD

1992 Delta V. After I bought it new, I changed out a few things for looks and weight weenieness.

It still gets fairly regular use on the local trails.

1992 Cannondale 2.8 frame (size 54) and forks
Some ole 'Shimano 600' headset.
A handsomely designed 100mm quill stem from an aussie Repco Olympic 12 bike circa the same period.
The bike had been let go to rot somewhat when I acquired it but did contain great vintage parts I was able to restore for other future builds, but I decided to go with a modern 10 speed shimano 5700 groupset (black cranks with silver derailleurs and brifters) except for space grey Ultegra 6700 brake calipers and 5800 carbon pedals both which i acquired on sale. 5750 cranks that is - compact, 50/34. and 12-27 cassette).
Bontrager carbon seatpost (OEM from a 2008 Lemond Etape) to help soften the ride on what is supposed to be a bonejarringly stiff ride on a particularly stiff aluminium frame (but hey at 73kgs and flying up steep hills you won't hear me complain)
Bontrager saddle pictured is from the Lemond as well but since changed to a white and 'cobalt blue'-striped Fizik Arione.
Deep V Velocity rims with bladed spokes and some very basic unremarkable Formula hubs. But I don't know much about building wheels, yet... hopefully they'll last long enough for me to experiment with using better hubs.
So, by no means a finished work but a work in progress. Just took the Deep V velocity decals off with paintstripper for a plainer look, too. The barwrap is my first ever attempt so that area should also improve.

It may or may not get some paint or powder coating later, I haven't yet decided as I continue to look into it as a novice with only some limited workshop spray experience and knowledge and ability to fathom the undertaking of such tasks. I need to more seriously look into that. At the moment it is protected from the elements by turtle wax. Just enjoying getting used to the bike as is as at the moment as I take it on longer rides.
