Think I should go for it?

I posted this in the Road forum, but no one responded and few looked at it. I s'pose that area moves too fast.

I want to do more road cycling, and am limited with my current road bike. It's far too large for me, and causes a lot of back pain. I am sore every day 'cause of my landscaping work... I don't need the bike to hurt me too.

2003 Opus Fidelio, stock.

What do you guys think? It happens to be the right size for me.

First of all, the thread title is too general. My guess is the road bikers are out biking, and not looking at BF as closely as they might in the dead of winter. They may have skipped over.

I ride mostly old junky stuff -- don't know much about expensive road bikes -- that one looks nice -- retail was $1099 -- asking $6xx -- 2003 model --

If it fits you & you like it, if it's not worn much, if the quality is in line with new bikes (really) costing a fair bit more than $6xx -- if you really need a $6xx bike and/or can afford it -- why not?

Sorry not much help -- but -- maybe try a thread title like "Opinions Wanted - 2003 Opus Fidelo" or similar.
