Very first post!!!

I'm fairly new to the road bike game. I was curious if this bike (Cannondale Silkroad r1000 CAD3/ all Ultegra/w Mavic CXP30 wheels) would be proper for very long rides and some light touring? I'm 6'4" about 250lbs. I was also curious if this bike is worth the asking price of $750.00 in very good shape. Any opinions would be much appreciated!

Thank you all!

That is about 1/3 to 1/2 of the original price of the bike. If it is in good shape, its probably worth the price. The most important thing is to make sure that it fits properly.
