Hello, I'm hoping someone can help me find me locate a post with a dark green Cannondale with yellow decals I've seen here in the past. I've searched the CAAD build thread and "Show us your 'dales" but I can't locate these pics. I have a CAAD9 build project going on at the moment. I've just stripped the paint and had planned on leaving it raw but all the weld areas and approx. 50% of the tubes are covered in a white filler-like material which is impervious to paint stripper. I don't want to sand this off because it is obviously there to improve the smoothness of the finish and create the fabled Cannondale "smooth-welds" so I'm thinking this will be a custom paint job instead of a raw finish.

So, can anyone held me find this dark/forest green painted Cannondale (CAAD I think) with yellow Cannondale logos/decals?

thanks in advance

Could it have been a Slate ?

nathanong87 posted a picture of a very good looking dark green custom painted caad10 a while back. I can't find the picture anymore, but you can ask him maybe.

You can knock yourself out here

I'm not seeing that Cannondale used a dark green on a stock bike, but you might find one. They would also do limited runs on special order for shops or teams.

I have a dark blue CAAD5 with yellow decals, that shows in the 2001 catalog, that's going to be close.

So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

thanks guys. @Tenlegs, it was similar to the Slate but in a darker green.

that custom painted caad10 from nathanong87 sounds like it could be the one. I'll see if I can contact him.
