    2005 Veloce?

    i'm about to break my bank on what seems like a great deal:

    http://nashville.craigslist.org/bik/910645408.html

    i'm tired of my old bike and feel like i'm ready for a real machine.
    i've been reading mixed reviews -
    should i go for it?

    Absolutely, so long as the condition is good. Veloce is a very good groupset.

    thank you

    guys/gals. i'm going to ride it tomorrow. would haggling just be rude? - this seems like a great price.
    i. am. stoked! too bad winter cometh, but maybe the new bike will give me a reason to bundle up and ride through it!

    Enjoy the test ride! Trying to get a cheaper price isn't rude.

    so...

    i got it for 500, and
    after 2 years of 80's friction shifters, it feels pretty damn swell.
    the geometry is different than i'm used to, but i'm warming up. too bad the weather isn't.
    i feel like i got a pretty good deal, especially with all the ripoffs around here.
    anyone tour on one o these?
