Im looking at a Giant CFR with a full athena grouppo in the classifieds for $500. Any comments on the frame? Weight? Durability? Is that a good price??
Thanks!

I had a CFR-3 for a number of years and it rode quite nicely. Similar in construction to the older, carbon Trek (2300 series, non-OCLV) but better priced. It is durable but would have been better with a changeable derailleur hanger.

Is this new or used? $500 new is a very good price but may be a bit high if well-used. I think I paid $650 for mine new.
