    WTB: Cannondale Super V

    Looking for a LARGE 96+ Super-V to build an Uber. PM me if you have one for sale. I'm located in Tukee, but I'll drive anywhere for it.

    If you go that route and interested in 29ers I have a cannondale prophet swing arm for the conversion. I wanted a cheap 29er but ended up going to a flash.

    I take it I can't use the prophet swing arm for a 26" wheel then, right? 29er only?

    No reason not to fit the 26" as well. Search on the c-dale forum for a super v. There is a gentlman that converted his V500 i think and looks great (a few pics available).

    I did the Uber-V thing a few years ago but I'm holding onto it for when my girlfriend finally comes to her senses and wants to go mountain biking with me.

    Here it is next to my 5-spot (back when it was shiny and new)

    I tried to convert my jekyll but the top is too low as the prophet swing arm is arched too much and so it hits the seat post. Y glides, possible with another swing arm from a different brand but not the prophet. I might be wrong.

    I have a medium 1998 SuperV 2000. I don't know if I am ready to part with the ol' girl though. She rides like a pogo stick.

    I have a 1998 large red frame Super-V 2000. It has been hanging in my garage for 6 years. I did clean it up a couple years ago for my wife, but she never really rode it. I could be persuaded to let it go for the right $$. Please PM me and let me know what you had in mind. I'll get you some photos as well.

    By the way, what is an UBER?

    Good reading, but you may decide to keep your old Super V now.

    Basically an UBER V is a Super V altered to get a full 120mm travel bike, front and rear.

    I have an excellent condition '96 Uber light, size M, RP23 and Talas. I also have a new jekyll swingarm for full conversion that I haven't gotten around to yet. PM me if you haven't found one yet.

    I have a nice Super V 400, but wasn't quite sure I wanted to part with it yet. How much are you looking to pay for such a work of art?

    I'm finding complete bikes on craigslist for $250-$350. Found a pair in cali for $400. What year is it?

    Thank you guys for trying to help out! I've been wanting one of these bikes since drooling over them at my LBS 15 years ago.

    Thanks for the intel...Looks like fun, but I'd still let it go...I've got three other bikes and you can only ride one at time...I got some good miles out of my Super-V, it did Brian Head and Durango a couple times.

    I would say around $200 is a fair (high-end) price for the Super V frame only. There are folks on the intertubes who have tried to get higher when the UBER was pretty popular, but I always thought that was unnecessary gouging.

    I got my frame for free, but I ended up putting around $1500 into the UBER build, but I still think I got a pretty sick bike for the price.

    Anyway, good luck on your build, let me know if you need any advice or assistance!

    Sent Dave and Azokie pm's! Got a Jekyll swing arm on the way...

    After doing more research and reading what a couple guys here have to say about the mediums, I think they'll be too small. So a large it is. Soooo excited!

    I got it

    I have exactly what you need and I was gonna put it on ebay this week. But I believe my main frame is a medium. But it is the highly sought after 99 which has the proper frame tabs that doent need drilling and cutting. Are you doing an uber (6") or Uber light (4.5")

    I also have a SV swing arm a freshly rebuilt headshok and other goodies going up

    I did an Uber light and love it

    I am in Phx. Please let me know if you are interested and I can send Pics.
