    Second Hand Avanti Corsa Elite 06

    Hi Everyone

    First post from a mountain biker looking to get into road cycling.

    I'm looking for some advice on a road bike purchase. My LBS has an Avanti Corsa Elite 06 model that one of the mechanics has been using for the last 12 months. He says he has done about 600k's. The bike retailed for about AU$3800 and they are offering it to me for $2k. It has some minor scuffing on the rear derailleur and right brake lever. What I want to know is: is it a good bike at a good price?

    The specs are something like:
    06 Avanti Corsa Elite
    * Featherweight Columbus Airplane Tubing with Carbonio Seat & Chain Stays
    * Columbus Carve Monocoque Carbon Fork
    * Full Shimano 20 speed Ultegra Groupset for race shifting
    * Shimano R600 Wheel Set for lightweight performance
    * Lightweight Oval R500 Handlebar & Stem for race conditions

    Comes with Look Keo pedals

    Any help appreciated

    I have an older model Corsa (without the carbon stays) and it is a good bike, reasonably light and reasonably quick if you turn the pedals fast enough and often enough. It was my first serious road bike and certainly got me hooked. I'd check the price in comparison to a new 07 and if it is a substantial saving it's probably not badly priced? Avanti's are a fairly popular bike in Oz (or at least around here)?

    My first road bike was an Avanti MONZA and I still have my 10 y.o Avanti Hammer MTB. Designed in NZ made/assembled in Taiwan I think they are good for money/value.
