Advice. Opportunity to buy road bike.
Hi, everyone. I am new to this forum and this is my first post. Looks like a great way to hook up with other bikers. I look forward to chatting with you all.
I have an opportunity to purchase a 1997 Cannondale Silk Road 900 double. The gentleman who is selling it has ridden it for two seasons and it sounds like he has really maintained it well. It has a spinergy spox wheelset. I have not seen it yet but will be checking it out this afternoon. I am an avid mountain biker so I know my way around a bike, but have little (if any) experience with road bikes. I plan to put a lot of miles on the road this year so I want to get a good road bike, but since I am new to road biking I don't want to go out and buy a new bike, I would rather find a good used bike at a good price. I can't find any information or reviews on the web on this year and model of bike. He is asking $700 for the bike, sound like a good price. Any thoughts???:D
