Talking to guy off of craigslist about his year old 2007 mostly stock Capo (he changed out the pedals for SPDs) in naked aluminum. He's asking $500. Is this worth it? I'm new to SS/Fixed but would like to try it. The lightness of the frame is what's really attracting me, but I'm wondering if I can build up a comparable fixie for less money that weighs about the same. I'm not looking to join the hip fixie cult--I just want a lighter faster simpler bike for commuting and maybe cruising around (right now I'm riding a 90's diamond back mtb with road slicks which is the perfect theft-resistant beater, but it ways a ton and carries that Muffy stigma).
After reading so much about it, I really want to try fixed riding and this Capo seemed like a nice entry that still had the light frame from a trusted bike maker incase riding fixed just wasn't my thing. What do you all think?
