Cannondale SM 700 | 456

This mountain bike has it all: 18 gears, a Shimano Deore groupset, but again DiaCompe cantilevers. So we're almost there!

Seriously though, this aluminium bike, with its super-fat tubes, the smoothed-out welds and the unicrown fork, looks like some kind of cannon, with which you can conquer any mountain.

In the logo on the head tube you can recognize the contours of the station of Cannondale. The company started out in this Connecticut village. Back then not with bicycles, but with tents, backpacks and cycling bags.
