I am looking at purchasing my first road bike. I have decided that I would like to have something slightly above the very basic level of bike, but nothing too advanced and spendy. I'm really hoping to find a good used bike, so that I can have something a little nicer, 1-3 years old, without having to eat the depreciation of a new bike, while being able to get something a little higher quality for a lower price. Numerous bike shops in town are willing to look at the bike before I purchase it and let me know what kind of condition it is in, while trying to sell me maintenance work.
The bike I'm looking at right now can be seen at the link below. My brother, who is a triathlete, has been giving me some advice and is a big fan of the components and thinks this bike looks like a great deal, so long as the frame is equal to the quality of the components and the bike is in good condition. However, he doesn't know much about this frame and I can't seem to find anything on the internet about it. Do any of you have any thoughts on this frame, or whether or not this is a good bike at all? The seller said that he is the only owner and has had the bike for two years, but didn't get to "spend much time on it."
