Cannondale worth it?

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Does it fit?

If it doesn't fit, it's not worth it. Beyond that. it's hard to say without any more details.

It might be a really killer-spec, lightweight bike.

...but I'd still have a hard time paying that much for a 7-year-old bike with 10-speed SRAM.

Copied/pasted from an email/ad for the bike? Or are you actually the owner, looking to sell and asking for market valuation?

I have a specialized roubaix elite sl2 with campagnolo record 11 components. My original goal was to find a frame with a more aggressive racing geometry that I could use the components from the roubaix. Any suggestions on a possible candidate? or where to search? I've checked ebay repeatedly and can't find many 52cm frames

Trust your instincts. 7 year old carbon of unknown provenance, BB30, 10 speed SRAM.... Probably a $700- $800 bike if he gets a COVID premium.

Well it has gatorskins on it so there's at least$80 additional you'll have to spend on tires

How many of those components are worn/tired?

You could easily need to spend $400,+ to recable and replace wear items after buying it

Man, if you're mostly buying that for the frame, I'd say it's a hard pass.

As far as finding a smaller frame, I can't help you with that, but there's gotta be a lot of better options for the money.

Why not just slam the stem on what you have?

shelbyfv I should trust my instincts 7 years is a long time to wear out parts. I slammed the stem on my roubaix the moment I got it, but it still feels a bit tall in front.

Too much I paid $1647 years ago for a leftover with Di2 so no I would not pay that much.

Check ebay for frames.
As well as places like the pros closet.
