Hope this is in the right place...
Hello everyone; I'm new here and am hoping to be new to triathlon. I've been running 10Ks, half's, 10 milers, etc. Doing my first full marathon in about two months. Decided I'm increasingly attracted to triathlons and want to try that. Thing is I know nothing about bikes. I've done some research and I found one locally I'm thinking about but I'm wondering how the price is. This is what the guy has:
Raleigh Cadent One-Zero
Frame size: Large 56cm. 56cm top tube, 60cm down tube
Brand new Vittoria Zaffiro tires
Specialized Sonoma Saddle
Wellgo LU-982 Pedals w/ clips
Shimano tekTRO Breaking System
Shimano Tiagra Shifters
Airstryke Handlebar Extensions and Aerobars
He was originally asking $700 but after a little back and forth, he's down to $500. $500 is the budget that I've allowed myself for a bike (I'm new to this so I can't justify $1000+ for some of the bikes I've seen).
Is anyone familiar with this bike/setup? Do you think $500 is a good deal for this? I really appreciate anyone's help/input on this. As I said; I'm new to this and pretty ignorant when it comes to bikes.
Thanks in advance.
