Came across this on E-bay today. Looks kinda cool and I was thinking of turing it into a rainy day bike. Any thoughts?

Probably a nice bike But

Some of the early Carbon fiber tubes with alluminum lugs had problems with the glue joints giving. However, a guy I ride with has an older Trek with that type of construction that never gave him a problem. Nice riding bikes but with a risk.

Ask the sell questions about the joints, but even that's no guarantee that there is not or won't be a problem. Very cold temperatures and temperature fluctuations could be a problem too depending on the type of glue used.

Looks like a CFR

It looks just like the Giant CFR2 I had for two years. I believe the CFRs were replaced with the TCR line.I bought it used three years ago and sold it last year. It was a fine bike...until I got a Cannondale Cad3. The CAD3 accelerated better, handled better, and climbed better.

As a rainy day ride, it should be fine, so long as there is no corrossion at the lugs.
