Its 18.5.

And I would have to confirm Postage prices for you. But given its EXCEPTIONAL condition, I would recommend ONLY sending it insured. And given How nice the paint is, I would ensure the packaging and frame protection would survive Nuclear fallout.

Postage at cost price on anything I sell... 8)

CANNONDALE SM1000.....

It seems a shame after spending so much time and money, and help from others to recreate the artwork of this frame, going from a painstakingly drawn PDF file, to actual airbrushed artwork, for the black to white fade, NOT to build this immaculate frame into a period correct bike.

The detail and time that has gone into this sub 3.lb hand built aluminium American frame far out reaches the price advertised and the cost to recreate the paint.

In fairness the time and money simply equates getting a frame for free.... :facepalm:

It does have the Original fork too.

If anyone would perhaps like this built into a almost period correct BIKE, I think I may have most of the parts Kicking around to complete the build too, and am happy to do this if a price could be agreed. It might be nice to see this finished to be fair..... 8)

A great website for Cannondale fans.....

I hope 24pounces doesn't mind me using his BOTM winning entry of the same Example at this point. It was after all the Inspiration which sparked the Journey when I took my old bike back out of the box after all these years, and decided to refinish and rebuild to a spec and period correct example.

Never mind, I should point out for anybody else wanting a Quality RockyMountain, it actually measures centre to top 18.5 and center to top tube....16".... 8)
