Cannondale T800 Touring Bike - For Sale

2003 Cannondale T800 - "Size Medium"

Virtual Top Tube Measurement: 52.8CM according to Cannondale.  It's fitted comfortably to my wife who rides bikes with a VTT between 52-54CM.

From my experience, the VTT measurement is the most important bit of data on a bike's size and in fact the only thing I really need to determine if the bike fits within my ideal size range. Nope, I cannot help to determine what your VTT range is.

For those interested in stand over height for one reason or another:
Measured from firm ground, through the center of the BB to the top of the top tube, directly above the BB: 29.5" 

As you probably know, this is a serious touring bike.
Check out www.fullyloadedtouring and search the gallery page for Cannondale to see examples of this frameset in use (T800 & T2000 are essentially the same frame, but I believe that the T800 actually has the better fork). These bikes have gone everywhere and they handle superbly when fully loaded. Should be able to take 40c tires and fenders. The same cannot be said for many touring bikes.

Selling this bike is part of a major shift in our collection. I'm selling a Thorn Nomad, Bike Friday NWT and this T800.

Great stand over height, which is very nice for a touring rig. Lots of standing over the bike talking, looking at maps, etc.

Doesn't include lights, rack or cages.

Tiagra shifters, XT rear derailleur, 36 spoke wheels.

$450 plus $50 to be packed by a bike shop, plus actual shipping costs to a lower 48 destination (US).

Hey John, for some reason I'm not getting e-mail notifications of your personal messages to me here on this site.  This isn't a 54cm, which I thought it was when I posted to your tread.  It's a 52.8 according to the Cannondale data for size "Medium".  My wife, who mostly rides 54cm bikes has it fit to her specs and I've even ridden it on town rides comfortably, normally riding 57cm bikes.  As setup right now (changeable by changing the stem) from the center of the bar back to the center of the seat measures 65cm.
