For $500 more I can get the 6.2. Both slightly used. 6.2 has a few minor upgrades but mostly stock on both. Will be used for weekend rides and some tours/t-shirt type rides (not races). Thoughts on going with one over other for price diff? Thanks.

I'd take the 500 and put it in my cycling gear pot and go with the 5.2 myself, but then I have a 5.2 so may be a bias there. I just don't see how the 6.2 would be functionally 500 dollars better. I've spent lots more than 500 on upgrades to the 5.2 but nothing I wouldn't have wanted to do to a 6.2 also. Zipp 101 wheels with power tap, dura ace carbon pedals etc were the 2 bigger ticket items.

That is kinda how i was thinking. Both look to be in good condition. The price diff is at least 500 and might be as much as 800. Kinda guessing what I can buy the 5.2 for. Anyway, thanks for your thoughts.

Just looked at specs for the extra you get wheel upgrade. Slightly better cassette and upgraded carbon. Is it worth the delta ? If its less than 500 probably. Full disclosure I have a 6.9
