Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Honestly 650 seems slightly high for a somewhat older model singlespeed bike in used (even lightly) condition. Looking around it retailed at about $1000 new.

Bike looks pretty rad though.

Except that it comes with Avid BB-7's, nothing componentry-wise stands out to me on that bike as keeping value. It looks like a fun bike, but there's some "meh" in the pricing. Wait until it drops to 550 and then it'll be a deal worth considering. Its interesting on the historical note that its a disk brake SSCX bike that apparently came out four years before disk brakes became UCI-race legal on CX bikes. I wonder how many carbon disk forks were around at the time?
