CAAD7 - R5000 available as a frameset ???(8 posts)

CAAD7 - R5000 available as a frameset ???jjeff
Jul 30, 2002 7:03 PM
Anyone know whether the CAAD7 frame will be offered as seen on the R5000. I'm looking for a new frame to start on and am considering the Cdale should this frame be available )the matte black looking finish) or the Giant composite should I be able to find one . . .

I've rode a few Cdales over the years and have found them to ride well, however, they were other folks rides so I'm unsure of typical Cdale frame pricing. What are the CAAD7 frames running $$$$$ . Last, I had heard that the CAAD7 frames would be shimano BB/Crank compatible, anyone confirm this ?

Thanks all

You might want to check with Helen's in SoCa. They have their team colored frames in Caad7. They have a web site.

For 03 the C7 should be available in both standard and Dale BB designs although I only saw the Dale design at Helens.

as the entire bike is available as both - R3000 is standard and Team is C'dale Hollowgrame bb/crankset.

Actually, Helen's team frames are CAAD6fracisco

The Helen's team frames are CAAD6, with the integrated Cannondale hollow crankset and special BB.

In a correspondence I had with someone at Cannondale, they confirmed that CAAD7 is available with both the Cannondale proprietary integrated bottom bracket, as well as a version that accomodates industry standard bottom brackets.

I would not expect to see individual CAAD7 framesets available until later in the Fall.

I can only attest to the ride of the CAAD7. I have a Black Lightning Canny with CAAD7, it is fast, light and comfortable. I also have an r4000si and it is better than that!
