Hello, new to me ride

I just purchased this bike for a song. It is a vintage aluminum cannondale from when they had the little house logo on the head tube. It is a 60cm and after a good scrub and new brake cables it seems like a winner. I am looking forward to it since I have been riding a carbon bike and although I have custom 36 spoke wheels on it, I am always concerned with the carbon failing on my weight (390lbs). Anyways, I just wanted to show it off :-)

Should hold yourweight fine. Just make sure the tires and tubes and rim liners are in good shape and keep the tires inflated!
