Cannondale R500 good price?

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

Cannondale R500 good price?

I know i have looked around seem like a smoking hot deal 2005 cannondale R500 for $200. I know it is a low end bike but is this a good deal? I emailed the seller about the size which is not listed. Here is a link for the specs http://www.cannondale.com/bikes/05/c...del-5RR5T.html thanks for any info.

That comes under the heading of too good to be true. Please be careful that its not stolen. If it's legit, buy it.

Besides call the local bike shops, is there a state by state or national list of stolen bikes and their numbers? That or original paper work would put my mind at ease my last Cdale was stolen out at school.
