Cannondale Caad7 R2000 Optimo 52cm - SOLD

  • Making the switch to disc brakes so got this taking up much-needed space

    Cannondale Caad7 Optimo 52cm - I went on the absolute treasure trove that is Vintage Cannondale and found the 2003 catalogue which has this colourway and a size guide which is handy.

    https://vintagecannondale.com/year/2003/­2003.pdf

    Comes with a Rotor threaded BB - 30mm I believe

    Hope the photos show the condition well enough, it's in great knick and has very few scratches. I had it built up with new Ultegra and Zipps 303s - absolutely flew.

    Looking for £300 - collection from anywhere around Hackney.

    Cheers!

  • Would be all over this if it wasn't too small for me. Gorgeous.

  • @glws may have a bigger one...

  • i sold it in the summer, but yes i had the same in 56 (and cheaper)

  • I have a 57cm , pm me if any good

  • Still sitting in London unbuilt. Damn pandemic.

  • 300 quid for 17 year old alu frame 🤷🏽♂️

  • as light, stiff and sleek as anything modern and in near mint condition 🤷♂️🤷♂️

  • I sold a complete Caad7 Saeco on here for £275 a few months ago.

    I offer you £180

  • I think this is going to become a very collectible bike in the future given where it sits within the Caad lineage. Amazingly thin tubing, first of the bowed seatstays, first of the Optimo alu frames without losing the lovely aesthetics of the 3/4/5. The 8/9 series looked a bit worse imho. Behind the Caad10 I think the 7 was the best they made. Only selling as I've got no space!

    Nah

    Amazingly thin tubing, first of the bowed seatstays

    We're all Caad nerds too... we know.
    But you're still a bit off on price. Nicer Caads have and do sell for less

  • Grand, well, always happy to haggle but £180 is a bit low.

  • Need? Absolutely not. Want? Definitely yes

  • Sold !
