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

Hello everyone sorry if this is in the wrong section. I have a friend selling a 2013 R3 with DA derailleurs and brakes and ultegra 6800 shifters. He's asking 2300 canadian. Just wondering if this is worth it? It comes with alloy wheels but I will be putting my own on there. Bike seems in prtty good condition. Was a project build that hasn't been ridden much.

Gravel is a no-no for a road bike.
