If you're looking at this you probbaly know all about the frame - It was the last model Cannondale hand made in their Bedford, Pennsylvania factory before moving production overseas. Half massively oversized carbon, half super stiff smooth welded lightweight Alu.
I bought this originally off @Dammit as a frame and fork and built it up myself with care. Its been used, but not a vast amount (only 2000km), but always very well maintained, almost perfect condition, no 'worming' corrosion like you get on some of these frames.
I loved riding it, so responsive and comfortable. I'm only selling because I haven't used it for a year, and Its a complete waste to have such a nice bike doing nothing.
I'm including a load of spares and extra parts for whoever buys it too. Please see below:

I really want this.
I could continue buying all of @Dammit 's old bikes. I just don't think I'd get that money back from selling the road bike I have.
Awesome. I'd never have sold mine if it fit me better. Such good frames
just too good. i saw this or a brother around Regents a week ago.
If it was a 56 i think i'd get horny.
Right I've added the full specs, also note you get Ti Speedplays, summer AND winter tyres as well as a boat load of spares, so you get A LOT for your money.
@PhilDAS @LuigiDolomite Hopefully someone will give it a good home!
I'll leave it a while yet before I start dibsing split bits :)
This is a huge fucking bargain.
Times like these, I wish I had 1100 quid. Awesome bike.
Okay, dibs. Will PM when I'm out of work
Damn, wanted that SI Red crankset haha
Seriously tempted. What a bargain.
Woah - I didn't actually realise the specs of this bike @spotter that is an absolute steal. Shame to see it go
@JamesQGM is coming to test ride this next week so I'll keep you all posted.
Weren't they heavy?
Definitely not heavy. I seem to remember reading the frame being around 1100g. Lighter than nearly any alloy frame and some carbon ones too
... but didn't it have a reputation for being ... stable?
I don't know what you're getting at
Solid. Uninspiring. One end one thing; another end, pretty much the same.
I'm being a pig. It's GREAT and like it you get extras.
It's a bicycle, what sort of inspiration do you want?
I'm not sure where you've been reading or hearing, the system six is considered by many to be the best frame Cannondale had ever made, at least for it's time. That is its reputation as far as I am aware.
It's got a join in it.
Almost every frame has multiple joins in...
that's quite technical.
