Getting First Bike - Would Like Advice on 2 Options
I've been thinking about getting a bike for a while and have decided to. I'm really good friends with the guys at the LBS and they know about my options and will gladly help me either way.
The options I'm looking at are a new Cannondale CAAD10 and a used Cannondale System Six. The System Six is less money than the CAAD10. It also has several upgrades to it.
Is the System Six going to be too much bike for me? I intend to ride recreationally only, although I like pushing myself. It's a great deal, but I don't know if it's going to be more than I need and hurt me in what I'm trying to do. It only has 700 miles on it in three years.
The CAAD10 is a great, all aluminum bike. Perfect for recreational riding it seems. I just wonder if the other deal is too good to pass up for less money than the CAAD.
All opinions appreciated. Thanks!
