Cannondale T2000

Hi folks: I have a chance to buy this frame for 300.00. It has the fork, headset, BB, cranks and brake calipers. Do you think it is worth it. The bike is a 2000 with very few miles. Also: How different are the T800 and T2000? Are the frames the same and components the difference? Thanks Charlie

I'm fairly confident the frame's the same CAAD3. The components are definitely an upgrade on the T2000. I have a T2000, but I haven't ridden another touring bike to compare it to. C'dale still has the bikes in their archives:

Frame is the same as a T800. Fork is different - straight on T2000, curved unicrown chromoly on T800. Components are different, check the Cannondale website.

I ride a 2006 T800, medium size; 172cm tall and 90kg (use your calculator to convert if you only grok British Imperial measurements )

Pro: Strong & stiff, my T800 rides beautifully with a load (no frame shimmy, steers well, no instability).
Con:
(1) Toe overlap at the front. Dosen;t worry me so much on tour as when commuting, with lots of start/stop/cornering/dodging traffic.
(2) Compact frame. Less room for pump and water bottles. Bottle cage on bottom of down tube almost unusable due to front wheel being so close to frame.

Test-ride one in the frame size to see if it fits and if the toe overlap is tolerable. Don';t know much about cost of frames in the US, but sounds like a good deal if it is in good condition, if it fits and if you like the way it rides.

--- edit ---

Please ignore my comments on price, I really have no idea what the US prices should be.

T2000

I ride a 2005 T2000 and like it. Mine is a size Jumbo which is the largest size frame they make in the T2000. I have no toe overlap at all and I have fenders on mine. I don't know about the price, it seems a little high to me but that is just my opinion. I don't have many complaints and like the way it rides, especially loaded.
