Correct me if I'm wrong...

Who would put all Shimano 600 on a CAAD 4 frame anyway?

Nor is it Caad 3 or even Caad 2. By looks it is an old 2.8 or 3.0 frame (early to mid 90's)(2.8 was the weight in pounds for the frame only). The cantilevered dropouts (behind the junction of the seat and chain chains) was a design prone to failure (they were especially vunerable during crashes)(I worked at a C'dale dealer in the 89-92 time frame). Personally I wouldn't pay more that $75.00 bucks for the frame, if that. Old 600 stuff was pretty nice and light but definetely retro by todays standards.

Yup, it's a 2.8.sn69

I had one. That cantilever dropout design also made for a spine crunching ride. No thanks.
the add doesn't claim CADD4. It says 3.0 NMDERICK

Now he just needs to drop the buy it know to about $225 from $525 and he might get a nible.
