    Vintage Cannondale Super V1000 (Naked)

    New to the forum and I wanted to post a picture of my newly purchased Cannondale MTB. I've been a roadie for decades, but my new group wants me to go off-road with them.

    I like a challenge, so I picked this up. I want to upgrade the fork, go disc brakes, and a new rear shock. Other suggestions are very welcome as this is a new format for me. I've built every bike I've ever owned, so looking forward to this!

    Came no paint, I guess that's a rare factory option?

    Glad I found this forum.

    Nice catch! I'd check the clearance on the frame for the rear tire to see what tires you could use.

    Tire technology has advantaged more in the last 10 years for mountain bikes than any other category ever has in the same time frame. I'd immediately replace the tires with new ones and replace the tubes with new production tubes as well before I did anything else. If I had to guess, I'd say you'd probably be limited to 2.2 inch tires in the rear but who knows, you may be lucky and have a lot of clearance.

    With that being said, The fork would definitely be the best place to start. I'd check the head tube to see what size it is. If it's 1 and 1/8 inches or larger for the inner diameter, you are in luck, there are tons of forks out there you could switch it to. One fun option that would probably work well is if you can find one is a Fox36 dirtjumper. Its a 26'' wheel fork with 100mm of travel. Older versions (2018 or older) had a straight 1 and 1/8 steerer. For that frame it looks like had a 50-80mm of travel fork so I wouldnt go beyond 120mm of travel with a replacement fork.

    ^headshocks are their own wacky size something like 1.5ish, you need an adapter to run a new fork
    All the gear and no idea.

    Thanks for your feedback. I was thinking about a Rockshox fork (https://www.sram.com/en/rockshox/models/fs-rcns-tk-c1), already have the adapter on order. I also want to upgrade to a shimano deore xt 10/11sp group (single crank), depending on what will fit width wise in the back. Disc Brakes too. I'm riding with guys that have $4-5k bikes, but I have that in my 4 other road bikes. Maybe if this catches on, I'll give this to my wife and splurge....

    Chameleon 4 found locally, how did I do for $500?

    I found this on the Nextdoor for sale website. She was asking $800, but talked her down to $500. Said she bought it from a bay area bike shop about 2011 for $2200. Had ridden it less than 50 times and never offroad and it looks it!

    I used to do trails quite a bit on a 25 year old Diamondback with 0 suspension, so this should be good enough for me. (Big Basin to the Ocean and back up)

    Yeah, I'm all about getting a "Deal" usually harder on NEW stuff.. Anyone know if $2200 is what this should have gone for back then?? She said she paid $400 for a recent "tune up" as well, but not sure what other work was done, maybe new tires/innertubes?! Tires don't really look new, but $400 is a lot!

    My mildly upgraded Kona Blast (next to my Talon 2 29), Rockshox Recon Silver fork, Deore XT rear derailleur, SLX brakes. I haven't ridden it in awhile as it was in storage, sure feels weird riding it after putting some miles on the Giant. Component wise the Kona is definitely the better bike, but the Giant is way smoother, the 29 can't go unnoticed.

    Yeah, I found that bluebook site, when I was trying to decide to buy it or not. Thing is I don't know what year it is OR what level components.. I looked at a bunch of Chameleon pics and she thought she bought it about 2011. So I figure it's that year or older, looks like a 4th Gen. But no idea on components, can anyone tell from my pics? Or need more pics of something to tell?

    Could be?

    But I'd say it's value is higher, since it's barely used!

    Don't get too caught up in the bicycle blue book value. I'm assuming you're planning on riding it, not flipping it. In my opinion you got a good deal, it doesn't look like the XTR kit but from what I can see it looks pretty clean. The chameleon is very versatile.

    How do you like the Rockshox? I have the stock Fatty currently, that's what I'm thinking about upgrading to. I could spend hundreds on better, but those are more than the bike cost me......

    I would hesitate for exactly ZERO seconds before grabbing that Chameleon. Five hundred bucks? Try finding anything better in any store for a new bike for double what she was asking! Definitely a score. Plus: I like green bikes

    I asked if $600 was OK, before I went and looked at it, she jumped at YES. After I looked at it, I asked $500 and she said sure and I bought it right away! She even threw in her nice looking pump, because mine is schrader...

    Trek 990 SL. Only one of it's kind. I built this as an homage to the last of the production lugged frame steel MTB bikes made with US steel by highly skilled US labor in Waterloo, Wisconsin. Lugged steel 20" frame. 18.5 lbs total weight with pedals, cages and bar ends. Ride quality is sublime. Climbs like a monkey on crack. Took a little over 18 months to build. More custom stuff that I had to make than I could reasonably explain in a single post here. Labor hours were ridiculous. Crowning achievement was building a 26" rim brake wheelset with aluminum rims that was barely over 1300 grams, and rock-solid. Only posting this because someone I showed this to online thought it was pretty insane and thought I should put pictures on the internet. So here you go.

    Nice choice of stem and bar ends. Steel or ti stems just look better imo. It pains me to see such narrow tires on a bike like this, but I can forgive it for everything else you did lol.

    Great job, that looks so good. I love the paint outline on the lugs. Is there a build thread anywhere?

    GT Karakoram from 1997. Bought it second hand on ebay and started to tinker . It came with a suspension fork (heavy and not working), replaced it with a Cannondale P-bone alongside some other parts.

    Thanks, man, doing some more upgrades on it at the moment, went tubeless not too long ago and throwing on some new forks and bars and brakes. Even though it's a 26er its still got in my opinion fairly modern geo and the bike does not feel like an old 26er it still shreds!

    Washed out, slightly over exposed. But, there's my wife's 2008ish Specialized HRXC and my 2006ish Gary Fisher Advance. I've made it a point to upgrade as things wear out - not sure if it speaks to Specialized quality over Trek, or if I simply ride harder than my wife (but that can't possibly be right), but nearly every part on mine has been replaced (save for the cranks and derailleurs). It's been fun feeling out the differences that each new part makes.
    I ride a 26'er with tubes and rim brakes.
    Yeah, I'm basically living in the stone age.

    Smile Sharing my 1st MTB - 2001 Trek 4900

    Hi all, still riding this Trek 4900 26er nearly everyday... and cleaning & polishing every other... Had it since 2001. Stripped and polished it a few years ago after the paint had seen better days. Replaced the old fork with a steel rigid Carver fork. It is light, simple and clean.

    thanks for the add! new bike old trek y

    Hello, hevent been biking in years but decided to start up again, I found this 1997 trek y3 in excellent shape for 140.00 lightly used
    took it out on the trails last week and had a blast, my only concern is I have seen them go for over 500 use on ebay and Im wondering if its worth it for me to sell and use that money for something newer.

    Are they actually getting that much for the bikes on eBay, or is that just what they’re listing them for?

    If they actually are going for $500, it must be for their collector’s value. It’s definitely not for their sophisticated ride.

    Personally, for $140 (which is practically free for a usable mtb) I would say that if you’re enjoying the bike just keep riding it for now. When it is time to get something nicer, you will know. Then you will find out what this really sells for.
    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.

    Kona Muni-Mula and Giant Trance

    That bicycle blue book site is useful, but tends to under-value a lot of bikes in my opinion.
    Here are my two 26ers. On the left is my favorite bike of all time, a 2000 Kona Muni-Mula that was a graduation gift from my wife. The only thing original today is the stem and handlebars. Everything else has been upgraded at least once.
    On the right is my custom Giant Trance, built in 2007 for about $3000. I bought it in 2012 for $550.
    Neither one gets much love anymore since I got a 29er...

    I also put some old mtb parts to use recently, with a big bmx in mind. Purpose-bought bars for this project though, and just had to have a SS coaster brake laced up for it. So far it’s laid some sweet skids down around the ‘hood with kids.

    Value on used bikes is tough to figure out right now. The lockdown has put everyone on two wheels. Sales in shops have gone through the roof. Therefore, the used market has been driven up too. Around my area, bikes that used to list for $300 are now at $500 or above. If you don't intend to keep it forever, there probably won't be a better time to sell than now. And yes, for $500, you could upgrade to a more modern used bike, but would it be cooler?

    96 f1000

    I decided to resurrect my 1996 F1000. If it rode then like it does now, I would never have stopped.

    Special thanks to Craig @mendoncyclesmith for rehabbing the HeadShok and building a sweet set of wheels.

    New XT8000 derailleur, shifter, crank and BB. SunRace 11-50, Wheels are Cliffhangers with Hope Hubs, 32 in the front, 36 in the rear.

    It took a bit of adjusting and finagling to get it to work with zero issues, but the XT GS cage has no issues.

    New stem and Oozy trail 780.

    Super V 1000 Update

    I posted my bike to the forum a few weeks ago when I joined and mentioned upgrade plans. I've done most of that, just have cables to install so I can ride this weekend (finally!). Wanted to share my progress. 120mm Front shock, Disc Brakes, Deore XT drivetrain, Mavic wheelset, etc. Now if I can just measure up to the upgrades.....

    If anything the upgrades will make you enjoy the ride that much more, making things a little more smooth
