    Colnago World Cup CX

    I was looking on Craigslist for a commuting bike and came across this cyclocross one for $800 (CAD). The description as posted:

    "Colnago World Cup CX Frameset Alu. w/ Carbon Colnago fork.
    56cm CtT Seat tube, 56cm CtC top tube.
    10spd. Shimano 105 Shifters/Brake Levers, Fr&R. Derailleurs
    FSA Gossamer Cranks 172.5 w/ 46+34t. rings
    FSA Stem/Bars/Seatpost
    Colnago branded Prologo saddle
    Mavic Aksium Race wheelset w/ bladed spokes. 20h. Fr&R. Radial +2x in rear, Radial up front.
    The bike is great, I have never raced on it but used to to encounter numerous trails, root systems,
    and whatever else the woods have thrown at me. I've tried to always keep it clean, it's a great looking
    bike and functions quite well! The only flaw is a dent on the top tube on the non-drive side. This has
    been there since I got it and it has proved to be absolutely no issue other then aesthetically, the bike
    handles very well and tracks perfectly straight. "

    Would the dent be a problem? Is this a good deal?

    Thanks in advance!

    Well, a photo of the dent would be a good start---you should ask yourself why that photo isn't in the ad. I wouldn't buy it personally, I don't like dents and I really don't like dented aluminium.
