Have always wanted one of these for some reason....2cm too small for me. Not an incredible deal given the components, but I have only seen a few of these for sale over the years. Great conversation piece for sure!

AHH! That's so damn cool. Love these neutral support bikes. I had a project yellow tarmac I modeled after one of them.

Same here. Always wanted one of these bikes, but definitely need a 60cm version..

Wouldnt riding a ill fitted neutral support bike only add to the authenticity of it?

If it were tiny I would buy it just to re-live the Jens Voigt glory

So I threw in what I thought was a pretty low offer and it was accepted automatically.

I had a 60cm CAAD9 in the past and it felt a little sluggish and cumbersome. Hoping this will be the sweet spot.

No idea what to do with it. The yellow paint is actually kinda screaming rain bike - visibility. But I also love it as a display case for all my high-end Mavic tubular and definitely not rain worthy wheelsets...

HA! Sounds good. I'm not sure I want to keep it forever, but it will definitely be fun to play with for a season. I'm sure it will be back here at some point...

I had a 60cm about 5-6 years ago. Sold it for $500 and regretted it since ...

Yeah, I was just thinking that these neutral support bikes never seem to fit anyone right, ever.

Jens Voigt was (is) a beast on that, imo.

I've got a CAAD9 that resides at a friend's in San Diego for when I go visit. I have very little into the frame compared to some of my other bikes.. so it's just fine (to me) sitting out there being used sparingly.

Mine is also Berserker Green, and makes an awesome foul weather bike.. nice pick up nahtnoj!

Bumping this thread because I'm selling the bike after riding it a few times.

Yep, Cannondale logo on the DT under the paint. Everything else is vinyl over the paint. Serial number under the BB looks like it was applied prior to painting and masked off.

Because I've only ridden it like 3 times? I'm usually on a very, very black Gaulzetti Corsa or a fendered Signal.
