    good deal?

    2008 Cannondale Capo....mostly stock with the exception of EAI cog and new FSA crankset...also comes with an extra pair of Nitto bullhorns. The price is $475...do you guys think its a pretty good deal? Let me know, thanks

    I'd grab it. I assume used; $475 is a pretty good deal w/o tax or shipping if your getting this locally. However some will say the components on the newer Capo's aren't as nice, but I figure you'll be upgrading anyways since that seems to be the trend here.

    That's a great deal. All the components will hold up nicely under normal riding. I would get some kind of foot retention on the pedals though (toe clips/straps, power grips, clipless pedals) assuming it still has the platforms that come on it.
