Not sure if there's already one of these threads, but I can't find it if there is.
Post pictures of your Cannondales here.

My first Cannondale. 1985 ? Raced on it at the time, but now sits on the trainer collecting dust.

My badboy '88 Criterium Series with Sakae Litage aluminum fork, 600 tricolor RD, Vuelta Corsa Lite wheels and Krylion Carbon 23's. Fast, nimble and climbs like a mountain goat....

My '87 Team Comp... One of the better deals I did. I has become a favorite rider and it came with teeny-tiny lolly-pop pedals that I sold for enough to offset both the cost of the bike -and a new Brooks for my Moto. :-)

I see what you did there.

FWIW, (and I'm sure it aint much) for my style of riding and the perfect fit my Criterium gives me, there is no other bike I want out on the steep hills and fast TT's. This goes for my race bred Colnago and Trek 760.

Post pictures of your Cannondales here.

Used to have that exact frame, I remember their Frame Upgrade program (or whatever it was called) - traded in my 2.8 for a 3.0, then it cracked at the dropout near the chainstay,and they replaced it with a CAAD3.

I'm just getting back into cycling after many years of not doing anything (except CrossFit for two years now). The CAAD3 feels like an extension of my body.

Bunches of them!














I still need to get a pic of the trunk bag- that thing is outrageously cool.



Edit: The trunk bag- the "body" of the bag is a hard plastic/composite box that the cover snaps on to. The cover has a padded lid with elastic straps. The bag attaches to the rack with 5 Velcro straps. It has 4 outside pockets (left, right, rear and top), D rings for attaching a shoulder strap, and the snap closure hand strap. Really outrageously cool.

Word has it(from a supposed Cannondale spokesperson/expert/legend) that you could ride a ST series tourer fully loaded to a Crit, enter, and totally clean house with it(with tent and sleeping bags strapped down no less).

Flag on the play, out of bounds (not C&V) and un-sportsman like behavior. But, other than a couple of handlebar bags, its the only Cannondale I've got.

2000 R600 CAAD3. 28c tires and a couple of bits upgraded from 105 to Ultrega. I had this out, Wednesday morning, on the Chester Valley Trail (NW of Philadelphia, from KofP to Exton) and it just flew. It does everything well and is quiet and very comfortable. Just about one of the last CAAD3s and one of the last with a quill stem. Great machine.

We can overlook that petty infraction for such a nice bike.

Sleeping bag. We have 2, with opposite zippers so they can be zipped together into 1 big sleeping bag.
I still have a heavy winter jacket that I use for outdoor chores, backpacks, fanny packs, panniers.
And 3 or 4 early road frames/bikes
