1988 Cannondale Criterium 3.0 "Black Lightning"



Dura-Ace to Mavic

Sansin to Wolber, 7 speed shimano

Shimano 600/Soon to be FSA

Vuelta Tri-Shock/Unknown


52x39 up front, 13x21 in the back. Modolo Edge brakes, Suntour levers.

Nearly all original, but since the suntour gear is on the heavy side I'll be replacing just about all of it with a Shimano 600 group. I am contemplating running it as a 4 or 5 speed, living in Phoenix I don't need any more than that. I love this thing, and I am planning on riding it into the ground!

that bike is an 1989 dude. the cranks are awesome, don't switch em unless they're broken!

Why is the world doing this to me?

I have been looking for the past few days on ebay and whatnot for an older c'dale. I just got that out of my mind and now i see this, it makes me want one again.

Sorry, the first 2 digits are the frame size in cm

Here's the link to the information for "vintage cannondales"

Check the serno and see if

Check the serno and see if it starts with 88.. I suspect yours may be an 87. My 88 which I have had and is entirely stock has a completely different gruppo which includes the Suntour Sprint line.. I can't remember whether I changed it out or not but it has a Selle San Marco black and gold Rolls saddle. I'll be interested to find out your true year.


This bike is full of it.


Nice, nice bike.


Totally forgot about that one.

the seat isn't original

the seat isn't original either. it originally came with a black Cinelli Volare SLX


And yes! There's hardly a scratch on the thing, like new. I am liking it more and more everyday.

I fckin love this bike!
