    New to Me M700 Frame

    At the local transfer station on saturday, saw a guy pull this out of his car, i snagged it after he dropped it off, I was really excited when i saw it, i have alot of spare parts to build it up with, it's gonna be a long build cause i have to save up for a new fork for my FSR XC, and i will put that old fork on this, other than the fork situation i shouldnt have any issues building it up. I'm gonna use it for road/light rail riding, with used trail tires on it, should be Avid BB5's front and cantilever brakes rear (i know 2 ends of the spectrum). I am told its around a 92-93 era? And that this frames are known to break when pushed? All i know is i am excited for a new build! Here is how it looked when i got it, i moved some stuff and took some other stuff off:

    I have a month and a half till my semester ends and job starts, so when that happens that when the bike will get fixed up!

    Despite little interest, i still wanna make this build thread. Heres the parts i have: (Might i add that this is beyond a budget build, all parts are leftovers from the FSR XC, but thats not to say that once its moving i wont fix it up right)

    -Handlebars + Stem off a 05 Rockhopper
    -Avid BB5 front brake
    -Shimano cantilever rear brake

    -Shimano Deore front and rear derailers
    -Specialized lock-on grips

    I have a 90 original m700 upgraded wheels, shifters, neck etc. it is now a loaner for friends and pulls my 2yr old. I love that bike, great for ridding around town and is fast on the trails - if you can take the beating. in 90 all cannondales where ridged. when I get the time will post a shot.

    good luck!

    Glad it lasted, im hoping to keep this bike for a long time, it should be a great commuter/light trail bike, so i dont have to wear the parts my FSR XC, or burn all my energy from using a FS on the road.
