Hey all- looking to get off my Specialized Crosstrail Sport and onto my first proper road bike. I feel on my a$$ and running isn't working to well these days but riding is awesome. I've worked up to 20+ miles on the hybrid and want to go faster... Easier.
I have read more about road bikes in two weeks than I thought possible. Ads like this :
"For sale is a 2012 Cannondale CAAD10 with 2013 Shimano 105 5700 Shifters, FD, and RD, FSA Brakes, and a Sram Force Crank. The wheels are 2012 Bontrager Race with Continental 4000S tires. Bike size is 54cm. Crank arm length is 175mm with 53/39 chain rings. The bike, components, and wheels are in great shape with little to no wear. The components were bought over the last winter and haven't even seen the road. Shimano 105 pedals and Bontrager RL saddle are included with this bike. Basically it's ready to ride, train, and race. I also have a Cycle Ops Mag trainer and some tires and tubes. Tubes are new in box and tires are a set of Michelin Pro 3 grip and a set or two of Continental 4000S. All in very good shape and ready to go home with a new owner."
Make me want to talk the wife into letting me buy more bike than I should. Any perspective on the deal listed above?
