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.
Awesome bike!

@casanewt, congrats, that's a keeper. 👍 Same as mine, other than a few parts, and mine's a size or 2 bigger. I suspect several of these early ones sold as framesets, so didn't all get the same parts. But yep, I have a Sugino AT triple, with a sweet Suntour BB. 😎

I'm sure it doesn't not compromise the integrity of the joint but I like to keep is as unmolested as possible in case I sell it. Or I may not put fenders on, it's AZ and we get about 1" of rain/year.


Wow I'm an idiot, completely misread the original question as 'how did you mount your rack'. Thanks for the correction, ROS. I know it's a bit late (don't visit the forum much these days), but my rear fender is attached near the bottom bracket with a p-clamp on the chainstay bridge just like you said.

Went wide when I replaced the trekking bar with a riser. I figure I'll try it for a while, and cut it down a bit later if I feel the need. Sure looks a lot less dorky.
The original reasoning was that I needed to get rid of the too-short quill stem, replaced with a PD adapter and a 130mm stem. Handlebar is 780 wide.
Grips should arrive tomorrow.

edit: Added the grips, took it for a ride. This bike was surprisingly good. However, as a city bike, I don't need that much leverage. So, I moved 'em over to my Montague Paratrooper, and stuck its narrower bar on this bike. Now it looks kinda messenger-ey. I may even put the trekking bar back on and give it a fair shake, at some point, now that I have a longer stem.

That's beautiful. Well done.

Of note - I just rode my longest ride ever, 202 mi, on my SC600 crit bike. Clearly these bikes aren't as punishing as legend says.

Just finished up this 96 F500. Had to convert the blown out MC50 Headshok with a standard 1 1/8. Fun ride.

Built up a touring frame that had hung from a hook for a couple years. Almost all from parts I had, just new shifters were needed.

That's a good looking bike. Are you taking it to the Coppi ride?

Thought about it. Right now I am going to ride the bike frame I built, but that is obviously quite modern all the way around, even if its a steel frame. Thought about riding this Cdale(with better tires!) since its relatively light and comfortable. I think a stem swap will be needed if I keep the bike as its a couple cm too long as is.
I listed it on CL last night as its pretty redundant for me. The frame had hung from a hook for 2 years, so hopefully someone can use it more than I need it.

...or maybe Ill tear it down and sell pieces.

Riding in the hills of SW WI will be fun regardless of what we all bring though!

Got a ride in with what I think might be my final arrangement, and it is good. Only thing I need to address is a new seatpost clamp. I'm gonna take off the QR one and
replace it with a bolt model. Otherwise, this was a nimble bike, perfect for casual group rides and beating up downtown.

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.

Landed a very nice small frame 1998 T500 yesterday. Nice upgrade to bar end shifters as well. Now my wife has a fleet due to my addiction to grabbing up nice classics. Hopefully I will run across one of these in my size some day for the right price.

I owned a 1988 SR800, and it ripped me a new one on long rides and sometimes I would almost feel bucked forward after hitting a large bump. Maybe it was my fit at the time, but have long wondered why Cannondale made that frame design change. I have a difficult time believing the marketing statement that it was to reduce weight and to provide easier access to the QR.


I was wondering the same thing, I guess it will be for a purely aesthetic purpose. My favorite frames are those with those dropouts. I have an 89 'SR2000 and I hope to upload photos soon
