I asked this in general, but that was before i figured out where the beginners board was :blush2:

I'm thinking of buying a bike with the following specs:

Giant TCR 1 (2000 model)
9spd full Ultegra grouppo
Drivetrain replaced last year including bottom bracket
Rims replaced in the last 2-3 years with Mavic reflex ceramic (new old stock)
44cm handle bars

All for 500$ CAD. This would be my first road bike - I'm training for a triathlon, so i'm hoping to put in 200km or so in it per week.

My question is, is it worth the money?
Also, what are some things to look for when buying a used road bike?

thanks for the help guys
