recently bought this and I think it's an SM1000 but, can't be sure... Anyone confirm and tell me the year of the bike. And also, what colours the bike came in as I'm maybe going to get it resprayed. It has a 1" headset and pepperoni forks.

Thanks,
Louise

I am not sure about the date 90-93 ish, generally with Cannondale the frames were the same just the level of components made it SM500/600/1000 :wink:

With a 1" headset in silver it should be a 91

In 92 only the M400 and M500 had a 1" headtube
and the 90 has a different chainstay tube (with a dent)

I'd be interested in those forks if you end up going with suspension forks on your rebuild... :)

I am not going to date your bike.
Is that why they are called 'mounting' bikes.

1991 18" Beast of the East frameset.
It was a frameset (frame/fork) sold alone and you built it with your parts.
Those frameset could be a garantee swap too. That's why there's nothing wrote on the top tube :D

I think it's a standard geometry frame and not the Beast Of The East frame, which has a longer headtube and a sloping toptube.
