    Cannondale Super V SX

    Forgive me if this is in the wrong forum but due to unfortunate circumstances a friend is trying to sell this bike http://www.cannondale.com/bikes/00/c...del-0VA7L.html in good condition. I was hoping someone could give me an idea of what an appropriate asking price is? Thanks.

    If it has the equipment listed on the Cannondale website, or upgraded parts, he *might* get $700, but is more likely to get $500. The rear swingarm is the "bonded" type and is very prone to failure (as in when, not if). The tubular style swingarms are much stronger. Is he the original owner?

    Can the swingarm be replaced? Is that an expensive procedure? The original owner passed away and it was left to him. The bike has been ridden less than a 100 miles.

    Yes, the original swingarm can be replaced with one from a Cannondale Jekyll.

    For more information about what you can do with this bike, read these two threads:

    Yes, the swingarm can be replaced with a tubular style one (typically found on the Cannondale Jekyll). The prices on these will vary between $50 if you're very lucky, to $200 for a NIB one if you can find one. Make sure they support disc brakes. Other than the cost of the swing-arm, you'll have to have a mechanic swap it onto the bike, and swap all the components onto it. If you're mechanically inclined you can do this yourself.

    Read these two threads to find out everything about modifying these bikes.

    In the meantime, go ahead and ride with the bonded swingarm. Keep an eye on it for cracking and if any appears, stop riding the bike until the arm is replaced.
