Cannondale CAAD8 Road bike in rare 61cm xl size. I’m 6 foot 4 and it’s a good fit for me, you can flip the stem and remove spacers if you prefer a racy position or are smaller.
This is the highest specification shimano 105 model. It shifts smoothly, stops sharply and rides beautifully. It is a used bike and has the odd small cosmetic mark but you have to go looking for them. Paint is black, red and white with a slight glitter you only see in sunlight. It’s only been used a handful of times and the condition shows this. Specification is exactly as it came out of the factory, even down to the original tyres.
I’m only selling as I’m just not really a road rider and the bike is way too good to spend its life under a blanket in the spare bedroom. Cash on collection much preferred
The original sales blurb is below
CANNONDALE CAAD8 105 ROAD BIKE
With someone’s all-important first road bike purchase, it’s the details that determine whether it gets ridden regularly or hung in the garage. With its lightest-in-class frame, more forgiving Heads-Up Race geometry, CAAD10-derived tubeshapes and unmistakable Cannondale ride-feel, the CAAD8 is designed to turn people into cyclists.
CANNONDALE CAAD8 105 ROAD BIKE
Fast group rides, lycra, the first crit- This is the bike for people who’ve been inspired by the peloton and are ready to start being a “cyclist”.
The Cannondale CAAD8 offers an incredible level of race performance for an entry level road bike. With racy handling and a comfortable riding position. Cannondale Aluminum crafting and CAAD10 DNA put the CAAD8 it in a class of its own.
Heads-Up Race Geometry The CAAD8 shares the proven race geometry of its more expensive bretheren but with a slightly taller head tube ( 1.5cm) for a more relaxed riding position.
Save Stays Optimised chain stay and seat stay shaping provides lateral rigidity while providing vertical compliance for bump absoption and comfort with no loss in power transfer.
Smooth Welds A true smooth weld rather than the sand, putty and paint ‘smooth welds’ found on other bikes. Cannondale’s trademark double-pass smooth weld technology eliminates the stress-risers and weak points found on traditionally welded frames, enabling us to build lighter, stronger frames.
Asymmetric Chain Stays Just like on Cannondale’s premium race bikes, Cannondale oversize and reshape the driveside chain stay to better handle the loads from the drivetrain, while keeping the non-drive stay svelte for weight savings.
Externally Machined Head Tube A technique Cannondale has used for years, excess material is precisely machined out of the low stress areas of the head tube, saving significant weight with no loss of strength.
BB30 System Fouond on both the 105 and Tiagra equipped models, BB30 is the epitome of system intergration. Cannondale invented BB30 13 years ago to take crank and frame performance to the next level and it has become the industry standard for stiffness and light weight.
