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

Whats a good price... (caad 10 used)

Hi ya'll.

I currently own a Tri Bike and find it hard and terrifying being on the aero bars going up hills and cornering (I live in a very hilly area with deadly roads). I wanted something that could take on those hills with me better, maybe race in triathlons with hilly terrain, and most importantly work on my bike handling skills! So I thought about getting a road bike and went shopping for a Caad 10 105.

The price for the Caad 10 105 would be 1620.

The guy at the LBS offered to sell me his bike (Caad 10 Ultegra)for 2 grand. Now before everybody says don't do it, hear me out.
The bike comes with a wheel set that I forgot the name of something Synergy. They take off a pound to a pound and a half and for retail they're 800-850.

A New caad 10 ultegra with these wheels would be 2600 plus tax.
A new Caad 10 105 with these wheels would be 2200.

So seeing my options I decided that I should probably buy his bike. (It's in fairly good condition he's only rode it for like 700 miles)
I'm test riding it tomorrow.

It's just when I told some members of my family about how much I was spending on a used bike they said I was getting ripped off and that I should just buy a new bike. Then again everybody in my family has money except for me and they no nothing about road bikes. So I thought I should ask for the expertise of people who know a thing or two about road bikes

Should I buy his bike? Yay or nay?
Any other options or advice I should consider?

PS. He's throwing in some pedals (i know it's not much) and giving me the original warrenty on the bike as if it was new. Which would be life.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

If he's giving you the warranty then I'd say it's a good deal. But per Cannondale's website the warranty isn't transferable:

"This limited warranty applies only to the original owner of a Cannondale bicycle and is not transferable to subsequent owners." (taken directly from https://www.cannondale.com/terms-policies )

If the wheels are really worth that much and it has pedals I would say its a great deal.

A quick google search produced a new 2013 CAAD10 Ultegra for $2200. Depending on the model of Spinergy wheels, they can be had on ebay (new) for $350-$450. So you may be getting $2650 worth of bike for $2000. Still not a bad deal. I would research the wheels for actual value. What year is the bike?

Don't listen to your family members (unless they're talking you down from a ledge that you shouldn't be on).

Haha that's the only time I would listen to them!
I think it's either 2012 or 2013. It's probably 2012.

Thanks for the input everybody I'll test ride it tomorrow and see how it feels

several other questions to ask are: did the ultegra come on the bike, or was it a group he installed? If he installed it, was it new or used? How old/ how many miles do the wheels have? I'm not overly impressed with the spinergy wheels, so for me that's not a selling point.

depending on the answers to those questions, if everything is new/or came with the bike, and you ride it and like it, offer him $1700. Also, being a CAAD owner myself, you will NOT get the cannondale warranty. maybe he can give you a shop warranty.

If he's a shop guy looking to get rid of his personal bike, you can bet he got it at cost or cost +-5 points (not sure what BS employee discounts Cannondale has.). I'm not sure how he can offer the original warranty if it was an employee purchase though.

He can go lower, but that doesn't mean he will. CAAD10 is a great aluminum bike, so I'd be a little less worried about warranty anyway
