    Newbie needing help on first purchase

    This site has been very educational and I wished I had found it earlier in my bike search. I am begining to get into tri's and hence need to purchase a bike but don't want to break the bank with my first steps into cycling.

    I can purcahse the bike for $400 which includes shipping from Colorado to Georgia. I have been to several bike shops and know that it is the correct size and that I want an aluminum frame. Since I have little experience I am wondering whether I am getting a good deal. Below are the specs.

    Thanks for the help!

    Brand: Cannondale
    Model: cad 3
    Frame Material: Aluminum
    Model Year: 2000
    Frame Size: 61 cm
    Shimano Ultegra front derailure
    Shimano 600
    Carbon fiber front forks
    Vuelta Bassano seat

    Since the $400 includes shipping I would say that the Cannondale is a pretty good deal. If you could post a picture of the bike and more details of the components, you might be able to get more feedback on how good the deal is.
