DON'T like integrated headsets, lots of nice parts there, I wouldn't buy it but I'm not a racer.

Yeah, you just own an $85,000 tandem.

It sounds like a good deal to me. I'm not fond of aluminium frames though. Its only a good deal if its a bike you want anyway.
Nuh Uhhhh!MrCelloBoy

I also own an ibis road bike (steel) and a Gary Fisher Sugar 2 (Aluminum FS). I also own 2 wool jerseys! I'm a combo-retro-grouch-new-age-geek!

It sounds like a heck of a good deal to me. I'm not sure on the wheels, dunno if I would want tubulars...
Sounds too good. Is it hot? -NMTig

I don't think the bike is hot. I have spoken to the person on the phone. Was built this past spring while working at a shop. Seems to be legit. Doesn't have the time to ride it and wants to get some $$ out of it.
Buy itMike

I'm not a huge Cannondale fan, but I'd buy it. Like Dino, I wouldn't want tubulars, but this is such a good deal that you can spend a few hundred for a set of Open Pros laced to a Chorus or Record hub and still come out ahead. If you feel comfortable with the seller, grab it before someone else does.
Wait, I'll say it before someone else does: IF IT FITS (nm)Mike
