Vintage Cannondale Early 90s?

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

Vintage Cannondale Early 90s?

Does anyone know anything about this frame?

https://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...:X:RTQ:US:1123

I'm talking head tube diameter, seatpost size. Also what are your thoughts on used aluminum frames?

classic dale.

1 inch head tube, threaded headset required.
27.2 seatpost

ride is a little harsh by todays standard.

200 is a little on the high side.

i wouldn't buy it unless i could lay hands on it. it's at least $50 too much, shipping aside, and i wouldn't get into that kind of money unless we're talking late 90's CAAD. for that money, you can get a complete used Cdale on CL. might take some work, but you'd be better off looking before buying.

used alu is all i ride, right now.

pass.

I have one of those, and the older model, and much newer models.
Why do you want it instead of a newer frame ?
I got a used 2008 Six-13 frame for $250 plus shipping, and much prefer it to the old frames.

P.S. Good luck finding a replacement FD braze on mount.

not all of the oldies has brazed on for ft der.
I have a 2.8 frame that require a clamp mount.

i totally agree with the other members, tried to get a newer frame you will be much happier.

I am currently on a system SIX, you cant event compare the ride quaility to the older frames.

Yes, the old C'dales are a tad harsh! The newer chain stays make for a more comfortable ride. If you'll just be doing short ( especially steep) rides, you'll be OK But constrained to some "classic" stem and fork configurations. For long rides, expect to feel every road texture in your contact points.
