|I found a good deal (price wise) on a Cannondale 3.0 Criterium series bike. I'm a mountain biker that is looking to start road biking.
Should I be concened about this frames geometry?
Are the criterium frames much different than the road frames?

|usually Crit bikes are stiffer, have shorter chainstays/wheelbase and higher BB. This makes bike uncomfortable on longer rides esp on coarse/broken roads.|

|You should be. I had a Cannondale crit frame. It was too compact for the long century rides I did on it. Criterium frame says it all compact geometry and quick handling. I would suggest go with something that fits in regard to comfort instead of a good deal. Good luck!|| |
