    Stopped in at the local thrift shop (Goodwill-type place) just to poke around and ran across this beauty. 1989 Cannondale 3.0 12 speed road bike with aluminum frame and Suntour components. Sticker price of $18.00.
    I'm not a road bike guy but just couldn't pass up a deal like that. The cashier said a guy had brought it in about an hour earlier and said it was tuned up and ready to ride.
    No work required on this so I'm planning to flip it on CL.
    Anyone here have experience with these that can give me some idea of asking price? Not looking to get rich, but a quick flip would put some needed jangle back in my pocket!

    mmmm, ya, I raced those back then. What a battle axe; perfect for criteriums. Not sure what it'll get you, but I'd start high. My guess is there's people who want those bad.

    Especially in my area. Those go like hotcakes, and for a pretty good buck, too!

    Hmmm... Define "pretty good buck".

    I'd say you can probably get 300 for it, maybe more if you feel like sitting on it a while.

    Thanks for the replies. I'll throw it out there and see what happens.

    Nice find. It's like mine but mine is red. There seems to be a growing popularity for "vintage" road bikes like this around here.

    I think I had the generation frame prior to this one, mine was actually called a criterium series frame, in blueberry, with yellow accents. Great race bike, lousy riding/training bike. never should have gotten rid of it.
