Notable because it was one of the first mass produced aluminum bikes--a rarity in those days. Hard to believe that aluminum frames were hot stuff back then. Sold for $595 retail! Sure I like lugged steel--I have a Raleigh Kodiak I'll post later--but something about the simplicity and stealthiness of the Cannondale really appeals to me.

Hey, it even made it into Rydjor's Bike Collection:

What kind of seatbag is that on your Cannondale? Looks like a nice large one that would hold a lot of stuff without being too bulky.
