Cannondale Caad 9 - alloy frame - last of the team edition USA handmade frames and the best alloy frame in my opinion. It is a 52cm (sizes a bit larger and fits more like a 54). Was same model used by race team when it was introduced.

Complete with an upgraded full carbon Easton EC90x fork (which cost over £400 alone!) shimano 105 mechs and shifters, sealed cables, Mini-V's, ultegra BB and cassette, FSA chainset. New bars and lizard skin tape and recently replaced dura-ace chain. Ambrosio Evolution handbuilt wheels by Big Al from Wheelcraft (the best!) with dura-ace / hope hubs. It has a 3T -17 degree stem, but can be swapped for easton EA70 for a more upright position.

Can be supplied with either Ulteremo R1 23c, Conti Gran Prix 24c or Vittoria XG Pro 32c cross tyres. Lots spent and in mint condition. I have used as road bike, not for cross and it handles anything from bunch rides, epic 100 mile+ club runs and even time trials - a great all rounder - and brilliant in winter as it takes proper SKS style guards. Although it would be great as a cyclocross race bike of course  4

Cost around £1700+ new. Looking for around £690 with sunday best wheels, or £600 with basic RS10 training/winter wheels. Or would sell for £730 with both sets of wheels ready to roll. No pedals - but can throw in some shimano SPDs if required.

Can send loads of pics if interested - located in South Glasgow area, buyer must collect. Just reply with a email link.
