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

11 Trek 2.1, 945$, good deal?

Found this in craiglist today. The bike seems to be in good condition. Is it a good deal?

Hec yea. I also just bought a '11 2.1. Although I got it new at village cycle in Chicago.i couldn't believe price for an overlooked in stock bike.I paid 960.00. Are you sure it's an '11? I think '11's Colors were red/black and mine in platinum.

Shouldn't the bow be listed in the upgrades?

(yes, that's a solid deal if it fits.)

Seems like a good deal for Shimano 105 and some minor upgrades too. Just make sure it fits.

If that was a 58cm, it'd be in transit to Florida via UPS.
