the latest addition to the stable. a 2000 cannondale caad 3 r500.
ok, so it’s entry level, but it is unmistakably a ‘dale. the silhouette of fat (the fattest) tubes changing shape along their length, the super-smooth welds, the giant chainstays.
the design was all about one thing and that was channelling mr. cippolini’s power into the back wheel. comfort and compliance were for wusses…
being a fan and owner of several of that era of Dale mtbs i like your bike -:)
the finish i think has never been bettered…
A thing of beauty all right, you're a lucky chap.
