Is This a Good Deal?(6 posts)

I don't know much about road bikes and I need (want) one for training use and maybe (well probably) racing.
I used to race MTB and now going to try to get back into shape.

I saw this on ebay for about $580 can you tell me if it is a good deal?

Has full 105, double butted wheelset and either triple or double cranks. They said some masters cat rider won a worlds with this brand or something. (?)

My local Cannondale dealer has a tiagra bike for $1195 so this looks to be a killer deal.

Would appreciate a heads up if there are any other good deals out there.

Thanks for any help

The one on now is too big for me otherwise I wouldn't tell.

When they put a smaller one up - I ain't gonna tell...

Hey - do you use a sniping program or is that your occupation?

Tiagra bike for $1195 is way out of line. New 105 bikes in the $800-1000 range are everywhere. for $1200 you should get ultegra with a decent wheelset...

And I'm in Jacksonville so I can save on shipping.

Well, wait a minute. I may not be able to convince my wife that I need a THIRD bike.

Then again ... roses?
