Subject: Thoughts on a tri bike?

Hello everyoneI was just wondering if you could all give my an opinion on a tri bike?

Bike Link

If the fit etc is all ok what do you think? How much is a bike like this really worth?

Thanks

George

Many people love the Quintano Roo series of tri-bikes.  I'm not sure what bike pricing is like in your part of the world but it looks to be a good price.  Have it checked out by a bike shop if you aren't really sure of the condition but it does look like new.  Obviously you know that fit is the most important thing.  Enjoyed your blog, I am also a fan of "Swim Smooth".  Bob

Usually something along the lines of, "Did I leave the iron on?"

Today I was busy thinking "Where did that flock of turkeys come from?"  All of a sudden they were flying all around me, kind of cool actually.  But I think he meant "What do you think of the Quintana Roo Lucero?"Laughing

I still don't get it but I am about brain dead as I watch the clock waiting for a long work day to end.

On the bike, I guess it's a moot point since the auction ended but I have ridden the same Lucero for a few year and I love it.  I bought a like new used one with full Dura-Ace for about $2000.  Not sure what the currency exchange is on this one.

My husband has that exact bike and really likes it.  He got it 1 1/2 years ago from a used bike store for $1600, which was a great deal for it.

My thoughts on a tri bike run the full gambit and that was what came to mind first.
