    OldSkool Cannondale 600m (1994?)

    Anybody out there have any info on these bikes. Frame weight, quality MSRP, quality of fork, etc. also have some component questions below. I read the review but was hoping for more.

    It was a Craigslist $100 find. The bike is in great shape, was garaged for about 10 years according to the owner. I am turning it into a Singlespeed when the budget allows, mostly with used stuff.

    Also any advice on bacic component changes for SS would be nice. I am doing this on a serious tight budget so It wont be getting the XTR treatment. I am planning on using a Performance Forte SS conversion kit.

    Main component question marks-
    should I keep the Canti brakes?
    Should I keep the bar ends? Should I chop them off at the bend?
    would I be better off with wider bars?
    What old crank should I look for at the Recylcled bike shop? (The STX uses odd size chainrings.)


    1994? Cannondale 600m with Pepperoni fork
    full Shimano STX -Including Canti brakes and levers, crank, shifters, duraillers, cassette and hubs.
    CODA bars (23") with Avenir bar-ends
    Vetta Lite gel Seat.
    old ritchy tires (will be replaced asap)
    Ritchey Vantange sport rims w/ DT spokes

    check out http://www.vintagecannondale.com/ for more info on the bike. Once you look at the serial number, you'll know what year the frame/fork are.

    I had a 92' frame and pepperoni fork with 91' components. Loved the fork at it was lighter and stiffer than the original.

    As far as the brakes- It would depend on how readily available parts are as I'm unsure. The bars/barends= personal decision based upon your size and preference.

    For $100, great deal IMO.

    Thanks,

    This bike is really a time capsule.
