Advice on a possible purchase
I found an ad for a Scott Speedster (I believe it's an S1 from the pictures) for $500. I'm still pretty new at this and have a lot to learn, so I was wondering if that's a decent price?
I've been searching online for reviews and it seem that the price is pretty good if I'm looking at the correct MSRP when it was released. ($1500-$1700)?
One of the concerns I've come across is the mixed reviews of Aluminium frames. I'm 6'1" and around 235lbs. Some of the comments I have found seem to indicate that Aluminium frames tend to fatigue over time. Is that true? If so, how long a life would one expect to have?
It fits my budget right now, but I can wait for another deal to come along if its not worth it. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
