Got the frame off a mate that was clearing out his garage, I think its an m400 but not sure!
He had at some point started to sand and repainted it(looked a mess) but after a lot of polishing and ebay parts buying I have this bike which I have been riding for a about a year or so,

It seems I am not the only one that has gone down the polished canondale route and I can see why they look so good and it really show how nice the welds are on this frame

I'd say it's more likely to be M600/M800 as that looks like a 'beast of the east' frame (high BB, on a centreline through the hubs...)

Sadly I have decided to down size my collection of bike to just one so my beloved cannonade is going to be up for sale, as soon as I get round to sorting the advert out.

I have never managed to find the details from the from the frame number can any one help its B1-0301

Thanks robin

just looking at the pic again and just looking at the rear triangle and it's the same design as mine and if memory serves yours could be a 93 - 94 model because in 95 they changed the design and removed the cantie mount off of the frame...
