    How to Figure out the Bike year off a Serial Number?

    Hi I am looking to buy a new Cannondale and I was just wondering if there was a way to tell what year the bike is off the serial number? I am looking for an older model new bike that's left over from old stock in the stores and I just wanted to confirm for my self off the serial number what year the bike is.

    thanks for the replies.

    Could you not just compare MY looks/equipment of the bike with images of said bike on bikepedia?

    The bike I'm looking to find the year on didn't have the same color schemes on bikepedia or anywhere on the internet for that matter. I'll post a pic on a new thread and maybe so of you guys would know. Also does Cannondale only make one color pattern per bike model?

    Would calling Cannondale Directly with a Serial Number be an option?

    Yes call Cannondale, and looking a the Vintage Cannondale link above will help. Also heads up on some models the European bikes (sold in Europe) had different color schemes then the same models made for the US market.
