Blue were kind of big in triathlon for a moment… but I think I remember their owner got hit while riding or something… anyway, I’d go take a look at that thing, see if its not too big, offer $600!

This also looks fresh… alloy, 105, easton wheels

Some dudes at work got some ex-demo bikes off Bike Exchange for insanely cheap, definitely keep your eye out there.

Looks to be Large only. Do Cannondales run small? Might have to duck into a shop that stocks Cannondales and see how they go for size.

Pompinos are singlespeed.

The Boardman looks good for the price.

Which I already have (Kona major one - love it).

worth a look Verite Team S 105 Carbon Road Bike - Cycling Express

sorry. I hope I made up for it with suggesting the Boardman. :frowning:

Boardman is only S & XS. Bit hubbard with Tektro R730 brake & space for fenders.

GET OUT!

Haha, all good champ.

But seriously though, I love the older look of steel roadies over the oversize tubing of todays bikes.

Boardman plus 140mm stem for the win!

Ribble Cycles Groupset - 105/Veloce for $500-$600
Wheels, entry level mavic/shimano/campy…few hundred bucks?
Bars/stem/post/saddle/tape…maybe second or parts bin peices?

So you have a few hundred bikes left for a steel frame, which im sure FOAers can help out?

Caad 8 with 105, for $1099, size 56 or 58

i’d go the bianchi on page 2. chorus is decent, bianchi brand is resalable.
ride it for 6 mths and if you get the bug, sell and buy what you know you want.
i’d say you’ll get your grand back on it.
