[Home]Cannondale R500

wiki home | RecentChanges | preferences | index | random

This is the first road bike that I bought when I returned to road cycling. I'd been commuting on my Cannondale SuperV, which was a drag to say the least -- a dualie is just not a good commuter, at least for a 17-mile commute. I shopped around in the classifieds and found the nice mid-90's R500 with next to no mileage, for cheap. The bike was great, but unfortunately, I'd been spoiled by my SuperV's grip shift system, and really hated reaching down to the downtube to shift (this was aggravated by the fact that I was somewhat uncomfortable on a road bike, having gotten so used to mountain bike handling). I longed for STI, and so I ended up replacing the R500 with the Cannondale XR800.
