Caad 5 Saeco 56cm (unfortunate fork issue)

Posted on
  • Yes, it's a caad, yes it's 56cm, yes, it's sweet, yes the previous owner used a star nut in the carbon steerer.

    On that last bit, it's clearly split, however with a flat top bearing cap it'd fit a stem with the top cut off. It's tempting to drill it out, stick a bung in and hope for the best, but I bought this on impulse and now need to sell to fix the car.

    Other than that, the frame is in good condition. Couple of cable rubs and a bit of Cannondale bubbling by the NDS rear dropout.
    Asking price is basically for the frame, stem, bars and crankset. The fork is included 'free'. If you want to ride it, go for it, though obviously I wouldn't endorse this.

    It's in York and I'd like £125 posted or I can get it to Leeds/some of Yorkshire for petrol money.

  • Open to offers on this. Looked into it and the steerer is salvageable by epoxying an insert into it.

  • Good price and great frame!!! I definitely don’t need another Cannondale but glws

  • If it doesn’t sell here .. have you tried the Leeds fixed gear Facebook page? They wouldn’t let a bit of cracked carbon put them off. GLWS

  • Genuinely surprised this hasn't had more interest, Saeco 'dale in 56cm?

    Go on then, £105 posted.

  • It’s the wrong colour haha

  • Very true. It's no plum caad 7, but quite attractive in the flesh. Sparkly.

  • Surprised too. I’m pretty close to getting it myself, just struggling to justify. Must... resist

  • Don't resist. Imagine it with some crabon wheels.

  • Yeah would be nice, but then need to buy everything else on top. Before I know it, I’ve done a grand on what started off as a bargain.

  • Still available. I've just bought something new so this really needs to go asap. Make me an offer or would take £95 posted. Gotta be worth that.

  • PM’ed

  • A one inch steerer, I presume?

  • Caad 5's are 1 1/8.

  • Sooooold.
