Cannondale Black Lightning - YEAR?

Discussion in 'What is my unknown Cannondale?' started by Florinator, Oct 25, 2017.

  1. Hello everyone,
    I was lucky to get my hands on a almost new Cannondale Black Lightning Limited Edition with a complete golden Campagnolo Record 10 speed group, golden Cannondale Neutron wheels and nice Hollowgramm cranks... It rides like a razorblade and I love it, even though it's not my true size.
    I would like to know more about it: Which year is it? How can I find out more details about it? Was the Campagnolo Group manufactured as a golden limited edition in Italy? Or did Cannondale put the gold on it?
    Thanks in advance for any information! I could not find any in the catalogues or in the web...
    Best,
    Flo

  3. I think the CAAD7 was only made in 2003. I'd be fairly certain that Campagnolo did the gold logos on the components. Cannondale may have added the decals on the rims. Nice find.
     
  4. I've seen 2002 posted for these. I don't think they were in the catalogs. They all seem to have their # our of 300 made on the rear chainstay. Beautiful bike! Post some pics after it gets a bath.

    It's 2002. Here is mine number 141 of 300. IMG_0219.JPG
