|I am looking to get a new (probably Aluminum) road bike that is Ultegra/105 or possible Ulegra with some Dura-Ace. I had been looking at the Felt F35R but I rode it and it just didn't feel as good as some others I had ridden, but for the price you couldn't beat the components. I have since found a 2002 Klein Quantum Race for $1700 out the door (including all tax, etc). This is a full Ultegra bike. The only thing is that the shop owner says he robbed the wheels, derailleurs, crank, and brakes for a bike he built for another guy when he was out of those components. He now has them in stock and says he will put everything back exactly as new (except of course they would be '03 year components). I am thinking of offering him $1800 to upgrade the wheels from the Bontrager Race Lite to the Race X Lite. I was just wondering if this is a good price for the Klein. I bought the same exact bike for my wife last December for the same price, but the bike was only 1 year old then and technically it is almost 2 years old now (since it has not been ridden, this would only be a factor if I tried to sell it some day).
I would like to get the '03 Cannondale R2000 for $1850 at Supergo, but I live in the east and their site claims they won't do mail order.
