2014 or 2015 Cannondale Caad8

I apologize, as I didn't know where else to put this thread.

My LBS has a new 2014 or 2015 Cannondale Caad8 for sale with a carbon fork and full Tiagra. They said they will sell it for 850. Is that a good deal?

Thanks in advance.

I'd put it in the Road Cycling forum. A 2014 Caad is neither classic nor vintage, sorry.

If its a '14 CAAD8 6, I would say that's a good deal. Its not like you are getting some steal on it, but its a good deal for the components. That frame has some good welds- much smoother than the thick messy icing look of most other entry/middle end aluminum frames on LBS shelves right now. The components are really good for that price too. If the bike comes as brand new with the typical free tune-up/adjustment in the first year, seems like a solid buy, assuming it fits.

Not C&V, but a good price on a fine bicycle.

Thanks for the replies. So I assume if the 14 is a decent deal, the 15 is an even better deal?

No idea if anything changed between years. If nothing changed, it really isn't a better deal since the model year doesn't mean much- both are new. I only knew about the '14 model because I saw one in one of my LBS earlier in the year while my wife was getting a bike.
