Is this a good starter bike/price
I am just beginning to get into bike riding as I currently swim and run. I am a beginner and looking to start getting into bike training. I want to start with a road bike as I think this would be best for me at this time. Given that, I saw an add for a 2008 Specialized Allez Road Bike with a 56 cm frame for 800$ with triathlon add-ons (other than the pedals and water bottle holder) include aerobars. The components are tiagra and shimano. The bike has hardly been used.
I was also told that I can easily adjust the seat if 56 cm is too small or too large, but being the novice I am I would probably not know the difference.
Is this a good bike for a beginnger? Is this a good price for the bike and the accessories?
General thoughts? Please help!
