I'm looking to sell my Cannondale Silk to fund a holiday to Morzine.
Size 56cm. I'm 5ft 11 for reference.
It was the dream bike I always wanted when I was a kid growing up racing, so I will be sad to see it go but needs must.
Overall condition is good, I have taken pictures of the areas where the paint has stated to flake in places. Paintwork is good and cleans up really well. Odd chip here and there but nothing excessive.
Headshock works well and the adjustment lever does make the shock stiffer.
Groupset is a mixture of Campagnolo Veloce and Mirage. All works well. Wheels are Campagnolo Ventos with brand new Vittoria tyres fitted. The wheels are actually 8 speed but the mesh is perfect with the 9 speed shifters. If you were looking to daily ride this the bike also comes with a 9speed Miche cassette (Shimano freehub fitment to make wheel choice easier) that has been used with the chain. I have never ridden it further than up and down the road with the Ventos on. I may even have a set of spare Shimano fitment wheels that can go with it as well.
Cannondale bar and stem, the bike has a Carbon Bontrager seat on now. Pedals not included but I can leave some on for a test ride should anyone want.
Looking for £500
Based in Stourbridge, West Midlands

If you have any questions or need anymore pictures just let me know.

An interesting bike. Do you know if that is the original colour? Any idea what year it is? What does it say after SILK ROAD on the TT sticker?

Nice looking bike, really interesting to see trends coming back around. Bit small for me though. if you’re in Morzine be sure to visit the Marmotte D’Or in Montriond
