Cannondale R500 Triple '01

Cannondale's least expensive racer outclasses most of their competitor's best bikes

Product Description

This is Cannondale's entry-level road bike. Typically Cannondale, it beats most of their rivals BEST bikes into a cocked hat. You get a 3.5lb CAAD3 frame featuring the super efficient PowerPyramid - a down tube that's massively (56cm diameter) oversized to eliminate flex where it meets the bottom bracket. The result: a bike that's less effort to climb, sprint or accelerate. Who doesn't want that? Component highlights include a Slice Echelon fork with carbon fibre blades to help damp road shock for a less tiring ride; Shimano Tiagra Dual Control Shifters and gears; Cinelli handlebars; and Cannondale Performance wheels built with DT stainless spokes and shod with Continental Ultra tyres. Entry level? My ass.


  • Handbuilt Cannondale aluminium frame
  • Carbon fibre forks
  • Shimano Tiagra transmission with Dual Control levers - ie the gear levers are integrated with the brake levers so you can change gear without taking your hands off the brake hoods - hence no loss of momentum or control
  • Cannondale Performance triple chainset with big 42/52 racing rings and a 30t bail out
  • Continental Ultra 300 tyres
  • Cinelli handlebars
