Cannondale 1999 R500D RED Serial # 345D 709RRD2E54
Well I have been looking for a good road bike for awhile, and had my eye on this Cannondale when Ken wanted $600 for it. So, when he told me $400 for a one day special, I jumped at it after 30 minutes of thinking.
This bike is very light at 22.4 pounds, and it looks like it not been used very much at all. While I won’t get to use it this year, I just couldn’t go wrong on the price.
It has a CODA slice Echelon fork that is a carbon composite. The brakeset is Shimano RSX Dual Pivot brakes, and Shimano RSX STI levers. The pedals are Look PM-137 SPD’s, but I will probably put Egg Beaters on it at some point.
The tires – which look like they have hardly been used – are 700 x 23c Continental Super Sport 100 on Mavic CXP 11 32-hole rims, and Shimano RSX hubs.
The bike is 24 speed with a Shimano RSX 30/42/52 teeth crankset, and a 8-speed 12 – 25 teeth rear cog. Non-stock items on the bike are: Profile Airstryke ZB aerobars and Cateye Enduro 2 computer.
