Cannondale T600 info and ID?

I'm still on the lookout for a touring bike. I came across this one recently. Can anyone tell me the year and the size? Is it a 21"? Any other info? Thanks everyone!



I've also found a 1984 Trek 620. Any suggestions one way or the other? Thanks!

That looks fairly ancient: down tube shifters, small cluster...

Have you tried contacting the seller to ask?

Cannondale touring bikes are nice. The catalogs are online so you can track it down. This looks to be a 19, not a 21 inch, but the easiest way to be sure is to check it out. Is this close to you?

It's 3 hours away. Seller has not yet responded.

I'm looking for a touring bike under $300. I'm 5'8" with a 30" inseam, average length arms. I'm currently riding a 2012 Jamis Satellite Sport. It's a 51 cm and feels just a touch too small. I'm looking for a bike that I can run wider tires on, 28 is all I can fit on the Jamis. I live in rural Nebraska. Mostly gravel and dirt roads, and terrible condition highways.

I just finished the Tour de Nebraska out around Scottsdale. There is some fine riding out there. Have you thought about an older mountain bike, one with a rigid fork? They are great for the kinds of roads you describe, they have lots of gearing, and they can fit a fat tire and fenders comfortably. Plus they tend to be cheap. Old MTBs were fine gravel grinders long before gravel grinding became a "thing."

Thanks! Yeah I rode street converted hardtail MTB's around here for years. I'm looking for something more road oriented now. I love the speed and efficiency of my Jamis, but I want something that can handle a bit rougher road now.

A touring bike is a good choice then. I rode my Soma doublecross with 700 x 38c tires for the TdN.

Ask the seller to measure the bike for you before committing to the drive then. Omaha has to be a pretty good place to pick up used bikes too, right?

Lots of used bikes in Omaha, but not touring bikes. They are quite rare around here.

Seller is original owner, bought it new in 1994. Always garaged and maintained. She says the seat tube length is 22".

That’s probably 22” total length. I agree that it looks more like a 19” (49cm) than a 21” (53 to 54 cm). The length of the seat tube should be measured from the middle of the bottom bracket to the middle of the top tube. I think the owner is measuring from the middle of the bottom bracket to the top of the seat collar.

Maybe. I thought that because of the oversize tubing..."The 19" has the top tube intercept the down tube, so only the down tube connects with the head tube. The 21" size has both top tube and down tube smushed against each other at the head tube junction."

I believe this is a 19" SR series.
