Cannondale and Steel

I have looked everywhere online but cannot find out if Cannondale made steel track frames in the 90's.
I found only one indicator that they did not. Is this true?

I've never heard of a steel Cannondale frame.

I would be interested to hear how many indicators you found that they did.

Early Cannondales used steel forks, that they bought from Asia.
No steel frames though.

Thank you everyone, you are all right. Cannondale never made steel bikes. I am trying to identify my frame, and glad that I can rule out one manufacturer!

Post it in the single speed/fixed gear forum. They will likely be able to tell you.
