Advice needed on bike offer!

Hi guys,

I'm looking to getting into road cycling and did a bit of research. I basically decided to go for either a Trek 1000 or an equivalent Giant entry level racer. (Around 800 euro)

I have a friend who works in bicylcle distribution and said he could get me a brand new one of these for 500 euro.

Im looking for opinions from anyone who knows a thing or two about bikes and all your feedback would be appreciated.

I haven't ever heard of kelly bikes... But Sora components are pretty much the low end of Shimano groupsets. For the price you're looking to pay I would try to get (newer) Tiagra.
