Just got this frame after searching for a "66cm" track frame for years. Cannondale measured to the top, making my usual 62/63cm fit equal 66 on their charts. Scored a very clean frameset, in a one-off color and no serial numbers. Debating between Superbe Pro track or Record Pista. Target 7200g.

Thought you all would enjoy - I know there are a bunch of CAAD nuts in here.

sparkle paint reminds me of my old NJS nagasawas. So sick man. Looking forward to the build

This is the holy grail of track frames. I was looking for one for ages when I built up my track bike. Hard to find. This one is a beauty, never seen this paint before. I ended up getting a Superb Sprint, which is a recent frame that is modeled after the Cannondale. Photo below.

Anyway, I think you should build it up with Dura Ace group. That's the only way to do it imho.

Looking forward to this build.

First - fantastic Superb build. So pretty but also definitely usable everyday. Well done!

Yes Superbe was original on all pre-CAAD tracks, but SSP parts are so hard to find in good condition.

I am finishing up a restoration on a GT GTB that is all Dura Ace. No need to duplicate that.

I've found a Cannondale track nut who has a knack for finding Cdale frames and SSP parts. I might contact her when I have funds for the build.

Eye candy destined for the GT, once the frame comes back from the powdercoater:

Nice!

Yeah, SSP is the OG group, but like you stated the parts are very hard to find. I also wanted NOS parts for my build, and I prefer the way Dura Ace looks. I took me a few months, but I eventually found everything thing NOS. Another reason for going DA was that the group includes almost everything expect for the bars and cog.

Anyway, a Campy group just doesn't feel right on this frame. You could also go with a current Sugino drivetrain, and Nitto cockpit.

Right- later CDale tracks came with SSP hubs and Sugino 75 cranks.

Somewhat of a test build. Moved the R pista wheels and crankset from my 3rensho, and testing how the Nitto bars feel. Surprisingly, the Paris Roubaix (27? 29mm?) tubs fit!
