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

is it worth it?

humm, bought a 3.0 bike with Exage for 300. about 10 years a go. yea i know. my first road bike.
so i would say thats really high. i just got a felt f-35 2005 with ace10/easton/and carbon bits for 600. so i would say for 2.8 pre CAAD your going to have old STI gear i would think. not a great pic of bike either. it over priced i would pass
