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

2011 caad8 105

Hi all,

I've been looking for a road bike for awhile and I think this maybe it. I don't want to invest too much since I have enough bikes and projects.

2011 CAAD8 that is lightly used. It has 700kms on it.

https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details...dId=1566118508

It hasn't been used since 2014.

Everything is priced a bit higher these days but this one I think it close. $850 CAD Any thoughts on it? I've had that saddle - its rough.

Sweet bike.
I'd be very happy with that ride. You can probably squeeze 28mm tires in there and that 10 speed 105 groupset is solid.

$850 seems like a lot for a 10 year old bike that was probably $1500 new, but used bike prices have gone crazy lately.
Edit: $750 - nicely done. CAD = even better!

$750 is better. I agree that bike probably wasn't even 1200 to 1400 USD new. But things are crazy and sellers now have an excuse to get the unreal prices they are asking.

So if everything works, it's the correct size for you and the gearing is appropriate for your area and your current physical abilities, then it's a good bike.

Go out and ride.

It has a frame pump. I'd return it and get my money back!

Nice bike!
