For those of you who were following my P7 build project you'll know that I am not a "completer finisher".

Well here is my next project and I hope to finish this one off :wink: (at a fraction of the price of the P7 :shock: )

I have liked Cannondales ever since I started riding mountain bikes in the early 90s. I borrowed a mates Msomethingorother for a couple of weeks while my Marin was getting fixed and I was blown away by how stiff and fast it was. So much so that I carry that brand loyalty today and have a 2009 SuperSix road bike and a 2009 Scalpel....and my girlfriend has a F1 Feminine! (it helps that I can get new ones at reduced prices of course...anyone want one? :D )

Anyway, I have got hold of this frame. It isn't in the best condition but it isn't too bad. The plan is to build it up for way less than £200 to make sure I like it...then I might go a bit crazy with it...watch this space

PS - can anyone confirm that it's a 1994? I am 95% certain but not sure.

pleased to see its going to get built. i bought it off ebay as a complete bike but nothing was useable so i sold the frame onto mikef350. I'll watch the build with interest

Colour is correct for 1994 M500 - Deep Indigo metallic to Cobalt Blue metallic fade, would have been STX RapidFire and LX rear mech.

Look on the BB shell, first two alpha letters will date it, i.e FA would be Jan 1994, FB February....blah blah blah

I'll keep an eye out on the roads near Kettering for this in a few months time :wink:

Boom boom :roll: :lol:

Hopefully loads of bits arriving next week but I couldn't resist a quick update shot. I'm trying to build it up as cost effectively as possible with a mix of bargain buys and stuff I've got lying about:
