Retro Newbie
Just finished going through this thread and what a treasure of Cannondale beauties! I’ve been on here for a bit but this my first post and wanted to share my bikes on here...ex-race team issued Fulcrum and a tribute CC Uber-V build.

Fully Rigid Cannondales can be used perfectly well for anything - MTB, Gravel, Road, City, Dirt. That's why I love them. But only the years 1995 (without the elongated chain stays, and with the beautiful Pepperoni) and 1996 (without the absurdly modernistic V Brakes....).

Here's my collection:

1996 Cannondale M900 in Speed Yellow set up as a 1x7 road racer (48 chain-ring, 11-28 7x cassette). I ride this one with my road buddies, the Maxxis DTH 26x2,15 are the more supple casing and surprisingly fast

1996 Cannondale M500 in Matte Violet set up as a 3x7 MTB (42 chain-ring, 11-28 cassette). Perfectly good for any Mountains Berlin has to offer. The Nobby Nics are the amazingly light first generation (570g), not the heavy new one Schwalbe has inflicted upon the retro community

1995 Cannondale M2000 in EVB (beautiful Chameleon paint that no picture can do justice) set up as a 3x7 Road / Gravel bike (48 chain-ring, 11-28 cassette). The Rat Trap Pass tyres are both 397g each and very fast and very comfortable.

1995 Cannondale M900 in Viper Red set up as a 3x8 Dirt Bike (44 chain-ring, 11-28 cassette). The Billy Bonkers have great grip, are very light (470g) and still quite fast on 5 bar (with a peculiar singing sound on asphalt).

1995 Cannondale M500 in Mako Blue Metallic set up as a 1x7 Lightweight Bike (44 chain-ring, 11-28 cassette).

Great bikes, especially the M2000, which in all its simplicity, I find one of the most beautiful bikes ever built. I think you have succeeded in showing the amazing paint scheme quite well in that photo :)

However, I partly disagree with the canti drop-outs. I think they look great in medium/small frames. Not so in L or bigger when they place the seat stay in too steep angle.
