Cannondale, is this worth it

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

If everything works properly and isn't beat up and it fits you, may be an OK price given the Covid premium. Campy?

Definitely 2005. Not sure if a triple cost more than a double (what you have).

Also surprised to see they had disks brakes way back then. Honestly thought this was something relatively new for road/gravel bikes. My bad!

I believe they are Gipiemmes. I believe I test road them on a Six-13 that year. Ended up going with the Ultegra Six-13, which came with Ksyriums.

Gipiemme used to make some really nice wheels and rims. Not sure if they still do. They aren't readily available in the states.
