I am looking into biking for exercise and hobby. I biked a lot growing up (riding and wrenching) and I want to get back into it. Looking forward to the great resource here on BikeForums!
I am thinking of purchasing a used road bike to get best bank for my buck. I came across a 2012 GT Series 3 in excellent shape. The bike has some upgrades but I wanted to get some feedback on price:
SHIFTERS: Shimano Tiagra 10-speed STI
CASSETTE: Shimano Tiagra,10-speed 12-28T
LEVERS: Shimano Tiagra STI
CRANKSET: FSA Vero Compact 50/34T
BRAKES: RC 452 dual-pivot, cold-forged, with cartridge pad
SADDLE: GT Bio Morphic dual-density
WHEELSET: Rims: Jalco DRX 4000 with CNC sidewalls, 28-hole front, 32-hole rear;
TIRES: Specialized All Condition Armadillo 700X25 in the back, 700X23 in the front
The seller has agreed to $450. Does this sound like a good deal?
