Up for sale is a stunning Cannondale Team Lizard SOBE mountain bike from the year 2000. This model was not available for retail sale. It was a “promotional bike” and given away at certain places and events. The frame size is Large, or a 20”. The sticker is still on the frame.

This is the cleanest, most original example I have seen in many years. It’s a 2 owner bike and has been stored in a climate controlled environment for some time. A bike that’s been ridden seldom at best. The rims show very little pad rub. The original chainrings and cassette look to have very little mileage.

It has almost all of the original parts including the SRAM 5.0 grip shifters and derailleur. The stock cranks are Sugino 175mm with original chainrings. Brakes are Tektro, also original. Even the reflectors and tires (which don’t look too bad) are still intact. The only thing that didn’t come original was the seat and seat post. I added a (brand new) Kalloy SP-369 and a Fabric radius saddle.

I went over this bike 100% which included minor paint correction and cleaning all the bright aluminum. No abrasives or metal polishes were involved. The bike maintains the factory fresh look the way it came.

I replaced the chain with a matching SRAM PC870 and replaced the V-brake pads with new TEKTRO ones. The original parts are included with sale.

All the cable housings and inner cables were replaced with brand new Shimano parts.

I serviced the headset bearings and cleaned the bottom bracket. The BB is cartridge style and still feels very smooth. The wheels are true and spin free.

The original pedals are included, but the bearings feel seized up. I’ve provided a set of new DMR platform pedals in white.

This bike is ready to ride or hang on the wall as art. There is one noticeable scratch on the down tube just below the water bottle cage bolts (see last pic). It has been touched up, so it’s not a deal breaker by any means. You decide.

Other than what has been described, this bike is in better than excellent shape! If it doesn’t sell, I serviced it to keep it in my collection.
