I'm very short- looking for a 50 or so.
I bought a CAAD9 frame set on CL with original fork, plus Easton EC90 full carbon fork, Ritchey WCS carbon seatpost, Easton stem and Ultegra front derailleur for $450 last month and I probably overpaid because I wasn't patient and just wanted to get something.
Okay- sorry my first post. Looking to stopping kicking my own butt, get off my Specialized Crosstrail Sport and onto a proper road bike. After working my way up to 20+ mile rides. It's time. I want to avoid the "what do I buy" troll. At the end of the day ... Local, used and less than a grand are good no matter what the name. This post came up recently and I like the look and feel of the CAADs. The pics show a bike in good shape but I suck at judging value. Here's the write up:
"For sale is a 2012 Cannondale CAAD10 with 2013 Shimano 105 5700 Shifters, FD, and RD, FSA Brakes, and a Sram Force Crank. The wheels are 2012 Bontrager Race with Continental 4000S tires. Bike size is 54cm. Crank arm length is 175mm with 53/39 chain rings. The bike, components, and wheels are in great shape with little to no wear. The components were bought over the last winter and haven't even seen the road. Shimano 105 pedals and Bontrager RL saddle are included with this bike. Basically it's ready to ride, train, and race. I also have a Cycle Ops Mag trainer and some tires and tubes. Tubes are new in box and tires are a set of Michelin Pro 3 grip and a set or two of Continental 4000S. All in very good shape and ready to go home with a new owner."
i was hoping to talk the guy into 800. Not sure that is an insult. I've asked him about the other stuff- available or included in the price...I assume it is avail for additional $.
what do you guys think?

Sure I'm forgetting something.
That is a great weight! What size is the frame? And how is the handling with the Ritchey WCS fork? I'm getting one put on on my CAAD8.
I mi think his asking price of 1100 is reasonable for CL. Interesting observation on the crank length- I'm on sort of in between on frame sizes. I'm 5-9 with 31ish inseam. I know I will have to ride it, but didn't want to waste my time if it wasn't worth it. The pics he has posted are okay, hard to tell but I don't care about cosmetic issues, just structural ones...

I took screen shots of these the first two just incase they disappear.
The picture if the complete bike is the components off a 2013 sram force caad10 (including wheels) on a 2014 frame. It ended around 1020 and I remember this because I said to my self "why didn't I buy this and resell it"
Deals are out there, you just have top be patient. I have been looking for a deal on garmin 500 for a long time and amazon had the bundle for 200$. Jumped on that real quick
Next up is a fluid trainer.
