Strengths:    Light and durable.

Weaknesses:    Not the latest fasion.

Bottom Line:   
I took one R1000 CAAD7 frameset, very second hand, build it up with full carbone forks, a Sram Rival groupset and Dura Ace 7801 wheels.
USE setpost, Deda 100 stem, Newton bars and a Thoork saddle.
Total weight 15lb dead inc Keo carbon pedals.
Out sprints, climbs and rides just about every current carbon combo I have been able to lay my hands on.
The best alloy frame ever made.
I have put over 5000miles on this frame, god knows how many were put on it by the previose owners, and it is as fresh as a daisy. Buy one and smile at all those overpriced carbon bikes, which usualy weigh a lot more and are no stiffer....

Strengths:    Good investment, will likely retain value for resale.
Lightning fast.
Stiff.
Good brakes (shimano105).
Bullet proof wheels (krysium elites).


Weaknesses:    none yet!

Bottom Line:   
Since I was on a budget I jumped at the opportunity to buy an older used R1000. However, I was concerned about frame fatigue. To my relief, after 600 miles of brutal riding and one crash, the bike is unfazed. No creaks or flex is perceptable. Thus far the cycle has proven durable despite its thin walled 'optimo' frame tubing. I cheer cannondale for the robustness of their caad designs. If you're weary about buying an older race bike, maybe think again:



However, there are always risks when buying used. This review only represents my experience in this specific case.

Date Reviewed: October 13, 2004

Strengths:    weight, the frame is extremely comfortable to ride on (even more comfortable than my last bike, a full suspension mountain bike) wheels are sickly light. Looks great, very stealth in the black. Fit like a glove (6'4, 190) 60 cm frame

Weaknesses:    seat/seat post, more comfort/lighter.
brakes/casette to full ultegra or start my upgrades to durace


Bottom Line:   
2004 Cannondale R1000
Great ride, I was looking at Lightspeed and Cannondale, decided on the R1000 because of price. Extremely fast, easy to ride fast, stable. By far the most fun i've ever had on a bike. Bike was totaled the 23rd of September by a professor who wasn't looking, so a 2005 is on order.
