Aluminum bikes from this era were pretty harsh on rough surfaces. Tire choice is key to comfort-use 25mm for sure, I like GP 4000s. Also, double tape or gel on the handlebars. These stiff frames are very responsive during acceleration and cornering. I have always loved this bike!

Sounds good then. I just needed your input, I've been testing out my friend's cannondale road that's exactly like this and he want's to trade it for my san jose, very comfy ride but not my size, I was looking into trading but kinda was skeptical. thank you for your input!
