So I've had this since 1995 (the frame is the same as M2000, i.e. there was no changes between m500/m1000/m2000 for 1995 as they were all 2.8 serirs mountain-frames), first proper bike I had and saved for 2 years from when I was 15 years old to buy it.

I was going to rebuild it with cheap stuff and sell on but I didn't have the heart in the end so I have decided to go for a full on rebuild to above and beyond m2000 with upgraded period-parts and my intention is to use as my main ride.

Rebuild currently in progress and aiming for final spec as below:

Frame: 1995 Cannondale M500 2.8 series (Iceland Green Metallic with Green Pearl Hyperhighlight)
Forks: 1996 Pace RC36 Evo
Headset: 1 1/8" Tioga Alchemy aheadset (black)
Stem: Syncros Cattlehead ahead (hinged; black)
Bars/Ends: Easton EA50 alloy riser bars with refurbed X-Lite Stubby Pro ends (black)
Grips: Ritchey WCS foam
Saddle: Flite titanium Gel
Seatpost: Syncros alloy inline (original in black/polished)
Brakes: XT m737 V-brake with NOS separate levers
Shifters: Gripshift X-Ray SRT800
Front mech: XT m737
Rear mech: XT m737
Cassette: XT CS-m737 8spd 11-30t
Chainset: XT m737
Bottom bracket: Royce titanium
Pedals: DX m525
Rims: Mavic 231 (or X517)
Hubs: Hope Ti front and TiGlide rear
Skewers: Hope CNC alloy (black)
Tyres: Panaracer Fire XC Pro 2.1
