1991 Cannondale 3.0 (13.6lbs)

Postby VintageWW » Mon Mar 21, 2011 3:16 am

So I thought it was time to finnish last year's winter project. I wanted to find a vintage frame that was stiff for climbing but was not in any way expensive. I found this almost NOS full stock original Cannondale 3.0 on ebay from first owner. After a small bid war I got it for just $530. At first I dint know what to do with it because it clearly hung out in storage for 19 years and the original shimano 600 and cinelli parts......spotless! Well I eventually decided to go with my budget weight weenie plan and put all the sweet parts on another bike and started the madness!

Very respectable weight for a non ww-frame. I really like the combo of current parts and some that are a bit older and how you carried the theme throughout the enitre build.

Nice- I have an early 90's cannondale criterium series frame but the rear spacing only allows for a 6 speed cassette- or so I thought- anyone else have any idea about this?

The only way to really tell is to spread her legs and give it a try. the spacing on this bike is 128 because cannondale knew that 8 speed was on the horizon so they wanted to open up the back end a bit on the higher end mobiles to allow for upgrades although at the time 126 was the spacing for most of there 6-7 speed bikes. Going from 128 to 130 was a matter of 2mm but if its 126 that might be a stretch.

I think that looks great, although I wouldn't have gone for the bright housing myself, but hey :wink:

Great bike VintageWW!! Oozes character, really like how you tuned most of the parts and put some of the 'old classics' in there with the newer parts, very nice :D How does it ride? Those were great frames in their day and I think they would still stack up well against lots of modern offers.

Mdeth, I'd just give it a try, or maybe it would be a nice base for a single speed or a fixed gear bike? :D
I've had mtb hubs (135 mm) in a road spaced (130) cx frame and other then having to fiddle a bit to get it in it seemed to work fine.

Sorry to resurrect an older thread, but this is really impressive. Ive been watching 'same era' Cannondales on ebay lately with this in mind. Amazing how so many are mint with all original parts, yet others are thrashed. As it should be I supposed!

My 2011 Winter project was a 1983 Benotto, period correct, but now Im looking at it as a tank that needs about 4 lbs taken out.

Current project is a 2003 Pinarello Prince, and its getting there; but your build has given me a few ideas to take it further.

Well done!
