I'm new to cycling. I'm scouring craigslist for a bike to start riding on the road. Now, I'm a good researcher, and know that a Cervelo is not really what I'm looking for. However, I found a listing for one at a ridiculously low price. I spoke with the current owner, and am convinced he doesn't know the difference. It's not a complete bike, but close, and he only wants 100 for what is there. He claims the frame is in mint condition, although he spells it "meant." I'm planning to see the bike tomorrow, but as I'm so inexperienced, don't trust myself to look for all the right things.
I don't know the model, but I'm in the market for a bike I can do some fully loaded touring with, and don't think anything cervelo makes is designed for that. I thought, maybe I can sell this frame and other parts (one Rolf Vector wheel included) or trade them for something more suited for me.
However I have read that many people don't buy frames such as these without warranty. What are my chances of reselling the frame for at least 200-300?
I'm reaching out for second opinions on whether this is too good to pass up, or too good to be true.
