Good Deal ********************???

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

Good Deal ********************???

Hi a NEW 2010 Cannondale supersix 3 for $3000. the 2010 comes with carbon wheels alum braking surface -Shimano RS Eighty and carbon handle bars vs 2011 with Mavric Equipe wheels and alum. bars the rest of the bike is the same. FSA carbon light crank, Ultegra componets.. The 2011 can be had for $2,900 and a 2012 for about the same when they come out soon.
My concern is owning a 2 year old bike right from the get go... I have a 2010 synapse 5 Carbon w/ 105 group that I paid $1800 and now has a upgraded crank (FSA carbon light, free long story) and they only wanted to give me $800, I bought this last Oct. . I'm keeping the synapse.. Any thoughts ********************??

Honestly I wouldn't expect a shop to give you much more than $800 on that bike, they have to make some money on it once they acquire it. You could probalby sell it for $1,000 or so. The upgraded crankset wouldn't have any effect on the value of the bike.

As for the new bike, that is up to you. If you like it better than the new bike then I say go for it. I do have one question though, in 2010 were they still having a lot of problems with those frames breaking? If that is the case you could very well end up with a 2012 frameset in a few months anyway with the components off of the 2010.

sell your old bike on craigslist.

as for the supersix, that' not a great deal to be honest. if you want it and like how it rides, then by all means get it, but there are much better deals to be had if you're on the fence.
