Hi All,
another find headed for the scrap yard saved it !
Told it needed too much work.. 4 hours a tires major adjustments (not completed) but a great very light Hybrid 24 speed all stock !
Wish it were a mans bike so will be Craiglisting this one in the spring after I go through it..
Rode this a bit and man just like my 12 speed road bikes almost speed and handling very similiar ..My Giant Cypress a tank compared to this lightweight ! Most of these were 21 speed ..24 speed may have been ordered ..am located less than 10 miles from where these bikes were made .. Cannondale bikes named after the Cannondale Metro-North RR Station few miles from residence..great bike for communting this one !
Well loaded few pics and enjoy !

are from bedford penn. I opened a plant in the old hedstrom factory and I remember a cannondale factory nearby. That frame is a uni-sex frame so you can still ride it if you like it. I bought one and its a 21 speed stx equipped and has the headshock and still mint condition. I find the geometry a bit strange but the ride is nice. mine listed for around $800 and I bought it in north Carolina if I remember right. So you did okay I would say

Thanks for the info Made in Great State of PA ! Love PA travel thru on my way to Florida great Farms there ! Anyway most bikes like this are 21 speed ..this is 24.. having some trouble getting shifting just right ..never seems to want to drop in 24th gear ..have to download manual at Cannondale site start from scratch..modulating brakes on this..almost considered swapping to my Giant but I truly dislike taking OEM parts off a bike..like stock condition..not sure if this was a major improvement over regular Canti bralkes but in time I will know..have to read up on adjusting these as well .. time on my side and enjoy riding a well set up bike ..more time than $$$$ ..Giant getting a full set new cogs this winteras well .much to do ..well I may keep this as its so nimble but my Giant takes the daily beating I dish out everyday.no repairs really..Teisco_Kid
