Cannondale R500 Women's Triple '01

Upgraded with a better frame, stronger wheels and a women's saddle

No Longer Available

Product Description


With more and more women getting into road biking, we are delighted to launch this new version of the Cannondale R500T (T for triple chainset). With its proportionally shorter top tube and smaller wheels, this might be your first opportunity to own a bike that actually fits rather than stretching yourself onto what's available. The spec is identical to the standard R500, but with 3 crucial differences: a women's saddle; smaller stronger wheels built on 650c Mavic rims; and a CAAD4 frame. This is like CAAD3 but further refined with a machined bottom bracket, butted stays and hourglass seatstays resulting in a more comfortable ride and a weight saving of more than half a pound. Going to CAAD4 is probably the best £60 upgrade in bicycling.


  • Handbuilt Cannondale aluminium CAAD4 frame - 2.8lbs
  • Carbon fibre forks - shock damping and light weight
  • 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
  • Hill-taming, knee-saving triple chainset
  • Compact 650c wheels in proportion with the compact frame
  • Continental Ultra tyres
  • Cinelli handlebars
