I need to know all about this bike.
What components and colour?
This is a light bike so is it rated as to who can ride it as in your body weight?
Is there a photo someone could send me?
Looking for all the pro's and con's of this ultra light machine.

Check out the string from a couple of days ago "Saeco '02", it has a couple of links to pic's (polished, grey, black).

Here's a link from their owner's group that tells a little more http://www.cannondale.com/cog/02/caad7.html. Some other '02 info can be seen from here http://www.cannondale.com/cog/02/

A friend of mine has a black one on order - i may do the same when i see it live. According to the local c'dale rep, the "production" bike weighs in at 16 lbs even, not the 14.3 that the article depicts - still very light though. I weigh 225 and he says that i should be just fine. I rode last years CAAD 6 team replica yesterday and it was great!

Curious to hear your thoughts after you check it out more.

Good luck.
