1983 Cannondale ST 500
Cannondale's first bicycles were produced with oversized aluminum tubing which at that time was very unusual. There have been aluminum bikes since the 1890's, but Cannondale produced them in a "Henry Ford" way; aluminum for the masses. A real revolution in the bicycle industry, before long most major manufacturers were forced into their own aluminum production. The ST500 sold for $595.00 retail and had a mix of components including a SR triple crank, Avocet anatomic saddle, Sun Tour's sealed hubs and their Superbe rear derailleur and Cannondale leather handlebar tape.
