Alright that other Caad9 question is making me want to ask another Caad9 question. I asked like 5 already this week. How much is the caad9 7 and would it be smart to get a caad9 7 and swap the components for a sram rival groupset for $600 or get a caad9 5 with 105 groupset?
P.S. what is the general price of caad9 7 and sram rival 8 '09 in an LBS. Also this might be a stupid question but is sram rival a lot better than 105?
yea don't get me started. I am sure you know about my purchase last week. Caad9 6 and kept the Tiagra which works great....so far.I have been waiting to get a new bike for about 1 1/2 years but did not want to jump into it with out research and it all led me to the caad9. I think you know what you want...the black is the way to go in my opinion...but i was even looking at the blue because i knew everyone would go with black, white, and grey. It would be cool to work with the blue.
So should I stick with caad9 5 with the 105 groupset?
I probably would make a bigger profit with a 105 groupset but its too much of a hassle getting it sold. I dont have an ebay account and I have no idea how to get it shipped and stuff.
The rival costs 1k at my lbs. Online i can get it for $520 but I can only use debit cards online. I dont trust my PC with credit cards.
Also, you sure they're selling the complete group? Sometimes, groups are sold with or without the crank/bottom bracket. If you already have a good crank, good for you, but that's probably worth consideration. From the prices I'm seeing, $580 is a good price for a 6-piece Rival, while 8-piece costs $650+
