I spotted a Cannondale Black Lightning for sale for $65. Looked like a 52-53cm frame, pretty clean, and appears to be early 90s version. Being late in the day, I didn't think I had much chance at that price. Left a message with the seller.
I get a call around 11:30pm from the seller and informs me he's gotten many responses, and that a guy is coming over Sat. afternoon with $85. Wanted to see if I can beat that. Although it was still a deal, and I do want a Cannondale road bike in my collection....I didn't feel the right vibes from the guy pushing me towards a bidding war.
I told him I wouldn't be able to bid higher. But to keep me in mind should things fall through.
Well, I did have a shot at it. I walked away though. So, did I make a blunder? It was a tad small.
