Cannondale CAAD 3 52cm Beauty FS :(

Posted on
  • A short while ago I posted a thread debating whether to build a Cannondale or a Mixte for my girlfriend and it was entirely conclusive that I should go for the latter. So with a heavy heart, I'm going to be passing this on.

    52cm Cannondale CAAD3 in excellent condition (considering its age) a couple of marks here and there from use.

    In the sale I'm including an m-part band on front derailleur mount and headset (headset will do the job but is a bit on the kak side.)

  • she chose a mixte over a usa made caad in excellent condition?! you shouldve made the exec decision

  • Would you enjoy cycling if someone forced you to ride a mixte that you didn't want?

    Flip that.

  • The most important thing was for her to ride the bike, so my exec decision changed from wanting her to have a bad ass fuckin rad bike she wasn't keen on and potentially not ride as much, to building her a nice bike she would actually want to ride. Maybe if I may be so lucky, myself and the buyer could arrange a provisional dibs for me to buy this back off them one day when she will want a bad ass fuken rad C-dale.

  • exactly, the point is for her to have the bike she wants and wants to ride, not what I want her to have which she doesn't like, which might actually be objectively way more bad ass and 1million% better to ride

  • Yep, get her riding and then introduce the idea. Best of luck!

  • That's the plan, thanks man!

  • I'll take this if you can ship to Bristol?
    No worries if not!


  • I’d rather not ship it but I’ll get back to you if no one in London wants it

  • @tayvelo

    sad ending to the mixte/rad Cannondale saga

  • I’m a Londoner and will buy it from you if it’s still available? (South though..... if you don’t mind me taking it across the river ;-)

  • Christ on a bike.

    I've been after one of these, in this size forever.

    Second dibs.

  • Yep - I would give you first dibs on a buy back too (if I don’t fall in love with the thing - haha) :-)

  • You have first dibs, pm sent

  • Cool :-) (Bear with me while I work out this forum on my iPhone) :-)

  • oh no ...should I buy it?

  • I'll take this if it's still going - PM'd
