Input on this Used Cannondale

Hello All! I have been looking locally for a new Specialized Sirrus X 2 or 3.0. No bike shops around here are sure of when they might receive more stock so I started looking used.

Can anyone tell me if this bike here is a good purchase? Size is right but not as familiar with Cannondales. I don't want front suspension and this looks like it could hold me over until the Sirrus X's come back in stock. Thanks!

The Quick's are nice bikes. This looks like a good price for what looks to be at least a near new bike. Looks to be a good deal to me.

Normally I would tell you to try to talk price down. BUT, used bike sales appears to be doing very well since new bikes are difficult to get hold of. If this bike hasn't had bids on it, and you like, you might want to jump on it soon.

Good Luck!

Thank you! I looked it up on BicycleBlueBook. It looks to be a 2015 CX 4. It might be a little overpriced was my only concern, but it does look to be in very good shape. I am sure things are selling for a little more than they typically would this year.

That is good to hear. Like I stated, I am not familiar with Cannondale as much as Specialized, but had read that this should be somewhat comparable. Thanks for the input.

That's a good-looking bike. If you buy it and like it, and it fits you well, I'd see no reason to sell it for something else down the road -- just upgrade it as you go.

As much as I hated to, I passed. I think the Medium was going to be a little bit too small for me and it was 2 hours away.
