Hi guys

 

I am looking to buy a 2009/2010 Raleigh RC 8000 C full carbon road bike.

 

Specs:

 

Shimano 105 wheels

Ultegra 6700 10 speed groupset with Tiagra crack

Carbon seat post

No pedals

Mid range seat

 

Bike is in good condition...a few minor scatches.

 

I can get the bike for R10 000. Is this a good price?

 

Let me know what you think....thanks (see pic attached)

The tiagra crack (crank) sets off alarm bells. It is a bit low specced for this frame. Find out more on why the group set is a mix and match affair.

Check on a few sites to confirm the correct crank length for you and/or the frame.

 

 

Not sure about raleigh carbon frames either. Better get someone who actually rides this frame to give you more info on that.

Nothing wrong with those frames,some Italian companies are selling them as top end frames for a premium price.Check the frame for any damage or cracks.

Best bet is tell the seller to take it to a shop and have them look it over for you.

The pic shows a sram crank and RS20 shimano wheels... Not to slat eyou on those, but is the seller selling you a lot of jargon or the actual product?

 

RS20 is regarded as training wheels by most, although I use them on my Giant for racing. Some guys have issues with spokes breaking on the rear, so if you are more than 90kg, you might have some trouble. I agree with Witkop about the Tiagra cranks.

 

I am not sure if I will buy for R10K, but then again, I have not seen the actual bike.

 

Take it for a ride, note the components and then decide for yourself...

If the Specs are correct, I would say the price is good. Those are pretty decent, really lightweight frames.
