I'm gonna reply one more time on this one. First off $2k euro's is sky high for a bike like this. Are those brakes hydraulic? etc. on the questions. But I'm not convinced that it is a good buy. ...

Looks like its been raced. My SuperX is covered in similar paint chips all around from racing and crashing and I have no qualms about hopping on it

So folks,
If you were buying a used Indy car that hit the wall would you be concerned about the frame? Bikes are just like Indy cars as being made from CF, and any chips dents and gouges are...

A chipped up and possibly delaminated CF frame is dangerous potentially and worse than a dented steel frame in value reduction. Not to mention the difficulty of knowing the true extent of the damage.

I believe the chips don't affect the structural integrity of the frame but, there should have been full disclosure up front. You should have had an opportunity to make the decision before laying out...

I can't say. But I have enough uncertainty that they are not compromised that I would not want that bike.

The problem is that there is a lot of fear of carbon fiber. It is quite strong, and will take some amount of stretching and bending, and return back to the original shape. However, it doesn't do...

I should add that I bought a used frame about 15 years ago, a Kuota Kredo to replace the Kouta I'd crashed, and that frame didn't have a scratch on it. The shop said it was used for a season of...

"no crashes" and cyclocross racing is an oxymoron.

I would put some nail polish on those dings and ride on,

if the price is right for the bike.

Most of those do just look like chips in the paint, but a couple looked deeper - specifically some of the marks on the seatstays. I wouldn't want to ride that bike.

Well, 10 hours of cyclocross racing has got to cause a bunch of scratches and chips so that's not surprising. What is surprising is that you paid 55% of full price for it. I would either return it...

That's a lot of scratches and bumps for a bike that was 'never crashed'. I'd go for a refund myself. 45% off list is not a great deal on a used bike if you ask me. When I'm spending that kind of...

I would go for the full refund. If you wanna make absolutely sure its not a 2000 deathtrap youll have to x-ray the frame. Guess thats more than 200.

Its kinda like mountain biking. If you are bombing down mountains, you want long, low, slack on a gravel bike. But that kills maneuverability and acceleration.

I surprised a pack of roadies (and...

I have a carbon TCX with Apex 1x. I feel it is similar to the SuperX. I ride it for road, gravel, and smooth single track. I love it. I think you'll love a SuperX.

No I have a 2x. I don’t understand the fascination with 1x. After years and years of pushing for more gears, from 5-speed, 8, 9, 10 and now 11 I don’t understand the mentality of now cutting all of...

The new SuperX can take a big ol' tire with an Ai offset wheel. It can also take a Lefty Oliver with the correct headset bearings.

The SuperX would be in my top 3 if I had to do an one-bike-for-all. If I were you i'd definitely go 2X with all that climbing and descending.

I have the 2018 SuperX and ride it on 6-8 hour gravel rides. Its a carbon bike. How can it not be comfortable? In my opinion, there is too much hyper-specialization in the bike market. Its a...

I've done 12 hours on a bike like the super x (santa cruz Stigmata) and it was more than fine. The ride was combo of dirt and road (bwr).

Looks like a perfect option IMO. I looked at the SuperX when I was looking for my 'do everything bike.' It was just a shade too expensive for what I was looking to spend. If I had found one half off,...

Its fine for 4-5 hours on the road, 4-5 hours on gravel are doable but it doesn't have any of the suspension that many gravel bikes have. Doesn't stop guys like Ted King from racing one for 200+miles...
