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

Cannondale R1000 CAAD4

Hello all,

I'm looking at buying a Cannondale R1000. This one in particular:

https://mimi.eachday.com/2008/4/19

Just wondering your thoughts. It looks like it's in pretty good condition. I see a bit of chain bite in the 8th picture, but everything else looks more or less in line. I was going to go take it for a ride sometime tomorrow. Is there anything else I should look for?

What do you think it's worth?

Also, can anybody tell me what model year this was?

Thanks a lot,

-Mike

It's probably '99 or 2000. Not sure what you could expect to pay for it though.

Just bought a r1000 caad 5 in black, all the same components and everything, except mine has campy tires and didn't come with pedals. Paid $600, but it was listed for $800. With the look pedals and the computer, I probably wouldn't pay more than $800

Thanks much. I was on the Cannondale archives and could not find that frame anywhere. Any ideas?

Personally, I would be thinking around $500 for the bike, perhaps a bit less. The only real problem with the CAAD4 frame is that it has a 1" headtube. The fork has a 1" steel steerer, so the frame is a little bit heavier than a modern Cannondale, but the fork is quite a bit heavier than a modern 1-1/8" all-carbon fork, and there's not much you can do about it.

Replace the fork...?

Not much selection in 1" forks... Easton SLX is the only really light one out there that I can think of, but it's an expensive fork for a bike that's 8 years old.

First, I'd contact the seller to confirm this info.

I owned a 02' CAAD 4 which had a 1-1/8" aluminum steerer (slice prodigy).

i just bought a caad4 r4000 with brand new campy veloce and ambrosio radar wheels for $780 shipped if that helps at all.

i think it's around a 2000- it has a patriotic mostly red then fade to white stars and blue rear triangle- haven't been able to get an exact year on it... o well it's getting powdercoated anyway.

i would estimate $600 plus shipping is a good ballpark deal?

You're right - the '02 R500 had a 1-1/8" CAAD4. But I'm pretty close to 100% certain that this R1000 is a Y2K model, and that it's 1", like my 2000 R800.

I had a CAAD4 for a while as well, and there is a dearth of light forks with 1" steerers. I went with an Ouzo Pro, and very much enjoyed it. The EC90 SL is one other option, and I think Alpha Q makes one (CS20?) with a full carbon steerer as well, though it's not as light and doesn't look right with the fat fork crown and skinny head tube.

Personally, I'd stick with the stock fork... sure it's heavy, but the paint job is pretty cool.

Oh hey, I just noticed that you can get a full-carbon fork from Performance in 1" for only about $130 or so. Guess I'm full of crap!

I'm not much for upgrades, but maybe I should do it and shave a few grams off the old R800...

I'm debating doing that to an 80's Trek I built up but I'm not sure because the paint won't match

Do it, they have a deal where you can get a headset, spacers, stem - the whole 1" threadless deal for not too much $$$. If I had a Y-Foil, I'd go for it. Y-Foils are soo cool; the quill stem looks like an anachronism on em.

Or don't do it, who cares about weight on an 80's Trek?


I think that CF forks are more comfortable than steel, though...

Oh BTW I unloaded mine for $700 us dlls couple of years ago. It may seem a bit pricey but bike was mint, not a single scratch/rust on frame, full 105, upgraded bars and stem, near new "Shimano 105 quality" wheels and was not ridden more than 600 miles.

Buyer was happy so I was.

This is the Trek in question. Getting it to sub 20 lbs would be nice, though it isn't going to have the race wheels or saddle/seatpost on it so it's probably going to be like 21 or 22 lbs with the carbon fork too. If it makes it more comfortable it'd be nice. Plus, using a quill stem is annoying because you have to mess with too much if you want to swap a stem or change the bars.

It'll allow me to wrench some more as well, which would be nice because I probably can't ride for the rest of summer due to a crash...

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but just want to open up the 'upgrade to carbon fork debate'. I think it'd be a great upgrade for a bike because even if the claimed weight of the fork is on the low end.

I might also not have a job this summer because of said injuries so the upgrade might not happen. In any event, you can always go back to the way things were if you liked them better that way.

Just an update if anybody was interested... I ended up pulling the trigger on her. I was able to negotiate down to $500 including pedals and HR monitor. Everything seems to works great, so all in all, I'm pretty pleased. Everyone, thanks for your input and have a great day!

ridethecliche, I'm not sure if I'm going to replace the fork. Probably not for now, but maybe in the (possibly near) future. It is definitely a 1'' fork, but we'll see how things go.

It looks like yours already has the correct headset in place for the fork at performance, so all you'd need to do is swap forks without needing to change the stem, headset, etc.

Nice ride, enjoy it!
