Okay, I bought a used and very old CAD 3 - just to see. A hundred miles or so is all it took, and I'm as addicted as I was afraid I would be. The old CAD has 105 front to back, top to bottom. Fast forward to today, and my local has the new Synapse Sora for $700, possibly less. Not trying to start nuclear winter over components, but what's the conventional wisdom here on keeping the old bike (that's technically a size too small at 56) or grabbing the brand new shiny one, albeit with Sora? The 105 comparison to Sora need not be made, but I honestly don't even know how old my current bike is with the 105's - and it has crossed my mind to buy the new bike, swap the 105, then sell it off. That opens another discussion of if that is even feasible. (This is what happens when the noob gets his first hit of crack...)
And I ask on the clyde forum because 1) I am one and 2) people here seem nicer.
