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

Felt F70 suggestion

Hey All!!! I'm finally getting back in to road riding, and am looking for an entry level bike. Been to all the LBS in the area, but found someone with a 2005 Felt F70 with only 400 miles on it. Upgrded the seat and tires. Is it worth $650 in your minds?

Thanks for the help!!!

Seems that it might be slightly high. I purchased my F70 in 10/2005 for ~$950(US). Having said that, it was the best $950 I have ever spent. Just to let you know, it never gets any less yellow. :
