I think I have an Orange Crush on your bike. 😍😁

Sram Crankset

What SRAM crankset is that? While I am not on the SRAM-for-the-whole-groupset train, they have produced some very nice looking cranksets, ones that I'd not mind on my bikes (Red and Force carbon). Add another one to the list! This looks like it took heavy inspiration from C-Record era Campagnolo. A bit of Athena and Record in there for sure.
Went back and looked at my purchase records. I bought it off eBay. It was listed as Powerglide, 2x9 and that it was a oem part, but no further detail. I took it out for 30 miles today, crankset was pretty decent. I expected this to feel not particularly compliant. I was pleasantly surprised. It was really smooth, without feeling sluggish like I thought those long stays might. Really enjoyed the ride.

And that color reminded me of this. If I can't come to terms with the red with white fade of my Kestrel - I was toying with this idea. So I dig your Cannondale build.

Yes, that looks like the same crankset. I would have thought they would have kept their branding on it though?

Weird that the seller listed it as "OEM" (aka came on the bike new) because it isn't (SRAM didn't possess or make cranksets until 2004/2005). Closest I can find is an older Force crankset, or an S500/S550/S300 variant as all have the same C-Record arm design the blends smoothly (no creases that define the arm) into the spider. Regardless, it's a beautiful crankset, and the other black components make this thing very visually cohesive. Older SRAM cranksets actually have very nice designs. Who knew?

Original crankset was a Sugino MP110 (110mm BCD) with a 50-40T chainring combo.

As to the ST's ride and handling characteristics, you are spot on. You can actually get out of the saddle and put power down like a sprinter and it will play ball. 46cm chainstays with steel won't do that, but large-tube aluminum ST's will. The stability and steering geometry make for tremendously competent bikes.

Yeah, too lazy to switch out the Biopace chain ring, haven't noticed a big difference. I could swap it out from another bike. I use GooGone on my hoods but didn't finish it off.

What's the story on your bike? Original owner?

All these pics make me want a Cannondale. Really it makes me wish the '94 M400 I have wasn't a size too small.

Keep an eye out on CL, sell yours and buy the right size. They are to be had for less than $100 if you're patient.

Story is I bought it in 1988ish. New at shop...was a promotional thing for bike shops. $495 I think. Sold my Bianchi Randonneur to offset the cost. Wish I didn't. That was the best touring bike ever.

Oh my.

60cm track (so rare!) and a 63cm SC600? Gorgeous condition and paint, especially that oh-so-'90s SC.

Picked up Black Lightning #2 today. This one is a 1989 60cm with the Suntour Edge group. Only thing non original besides tires is the crankset. The original had been stripped by someone who tried to get the pedals off incorrectly. Has the typical Cannondale paint chips, but pretty good condition.

I finally gave up on Bio-Pace too, lol. 😁 I really wanted them to work, but they just don't, in the long run. I put some old steel round chainrings on (for the granny & middle ring), and it's WAY better, especially for touring, with a heavy-ish load. 👍

Buy a Kuerig for $100 get a Cannondale for $5. Or maybe it was the other way around. Female owned and spotless. The bike too. Love the color, but sadly a size too small. The crappy picture comes off as blue, but in real life its a silvery purple or lavender

My M500, which I posted earlier as I built to be a weight-loss bike. Now that I'm well within the 'factory' weight limits for nearly all my other bikes, this guy has been re-assigned as my cruddy weather mount.
Sure, it looks like it might have been passed over for The 40 Year Old Virgin, but it works, and I don't freak out about it getting wet and grimy.
I may pare it down a bit in the future, replace that trekking bar with a straight one, and remove the derailleurs... make it a single speed. I have the parts on Ramp Rat, and probably need to reduce the fleet a little anyway. I bet this would be a fairly decent single.

I just picked this up the other day and threw some parts at it to make it rideable - it was an upright bar conversion with a nice fat gel seat. 1988 ST1000. It was missing the Nitto cockpit, Brooks saddle, and front low rider racks, but thankfully everything else was accounted for. It is a very smooth, stable ride that may just become my "tour for real" bike. I'll ride it this summer and if it passes the test, it'll get a complete overhaul this winter.

Picked this up the other day. Love a good cannondale and was sold before I showed up seeing the bullhorn bars and suntour thumbies.
BB serial stars with BB which puts it in 1984.

Bikes: Wow, where to start? A collection of 1980's and early 90's road, touring, and MTBs from the likes of Trek, Schwinn, Cannondale, Fuji, Miyata, Univega, Panasonic, and GT. It has gotten rather out of control.

Found this beauty today. I've been watching for an early ST. This one has a ST400 sticker on the chainstay, but it is definitely a 1985 ST500. It has the Sugino AT triple crank, the Modolo sidepulls, the Cyclone MKII front derailleur, etc. It has been modified a bit with the different cockpit and a Deore rear derailleur and 105 SIS shifters. CC are the first in the serial indicating the 1985 build date.
