    I have found a bike shop that has a 62 cm OCR 1, apparently an '03 model, that they have priced to me for $750. It has 105 components on the front and Ultegra on the rear. I will need to replace the wheels as I am too heavy for them (310 lbs). They are 24 and 20 spoked wheels. Is this a good deal? I will probably recoup some of the wheel money by selling the lightweight ones on ebay or something.

    Thanks.

    Oops! The title should have said OCR 1.

    I purchased a used '03 OCR 1 at a local bike shop that was only ridden about 15 miles . Mine has all 105's. Paid $700 out the door. I'd say that is a decent price since they retail around $1000. Make sure you actually test ride the bike because it is a compact frame which some people do not like.

    Talk to your LBS about having the wheels replaced there. They might get you a new pair of wheels for a significant discount if they can use the current wheels on another bike.
