I am looking for an entry level road bike with Tiagra or 105 Shimona component set on it.
my budget is around $1400 and below.
I went to my local store and I was looking at road bikes untill the seller offered me a RIDLEY CROSSWIND Blue/White cyclocross 2007 model. It had 105 components set on it. Except it is 9 speed instead of 10 speed. it costs 1000$ and could save me $200 to $400. I actually like to have a cyclocross because I want to do some off road cycling too. The bike is brand new but the model is for 2007. Do you think it is a good idea to buy a 2007 model with good components at a lower price?
or do you think I should stick to 2009 and 2010 models?
