56 cm cannondale sr600
[h=2]56 cm cannondale sr600 - $425 (Teele square)[/h]











I've got a cannondale sr600 frame with shimano 105 components in fantastic mechanical condition with a frame that's sure to make you feel like you're racing a classic road bike from the mid 80s.

It's a size 56 so it's a little too large for me. But if you're between 5'10 and 6'2 you'll love this thing.

Super light, super tight. You're about to purchase a HIGH PERFORMANCE LAND MISSILE.

Indexed shifting for quick and solid selection from the rear 6 gears.

The pictures do more than a few paragraphs could. Check em out, let me know if you're interested.

Cannondale Black Lightning - $200 (Jamaica Plain)







Nice condition! Everything is in working order and includes a nice mounted set of continental kevlar tires. Right size to fit those between 5'3" to 5'7".post id: 5233399565

Fantastic score! Haven't seen one priced that low. And with an Avocet 02 Air saddle. If it's a 40R and you don't want it send me a PM. Yep, completely self-serving post here.

That was my thought. I chalked it up to camera angle. But upon closer inspection, I see that you are correct.

The saddle is boss, isn't it!? How much do MB-1s usually go for? I jumped on it, but I wasn't sure how much it was worth.

The ride today was awesome. Sadly, the wheels are not stock and are Weinmann laced to Exage hubs. I had a nice wheelset lying around so I threw those on instead. Maybe i can find a set of cheap Suntour XC pro hubs laced to Ritchey rims someday...

Because the seller took pictures off the web instead of using pictures of the actual purported bike.

Is there a bike? Who knows. If there is, who knows what it looks like. Seller is, at best, an a-hole.

If someone comes by with some cash tonight, I should be scooping up the Houston Trek 520 tonight as well. I am selling a mini bike I bought on a whim a few months ago.,,,,BD

I looked at one just like this last week. Same size, color, and maybe year for $1,200.
This one is in better condition. I wouldn't think twice if I had the money.

Of course now I have someone to blame, hehehe! JK. I was like yeah, I want that one. Never going to find another 501 tubed Trek Touring bike in halfway decent shape, AND just about my perfect size on top of it. The cantilevers and Cyclone FD/RD are icing on the cake. The color is nice, and one year only as well(vintage trek website).,,,,BD

Raleigh Competition 1980 63.5cm, Campagnolo, hand built wheels

Looks like a solid deal on a very large Raleigh. A friend had one of these. Nice frames.
