I'm on the hunt for a new cross bike and I've been referred to this Caadx through a friend of a friend.

He want's £410 and I'm just wondering if you guys think it's worth it?

I can't determine the frames age, thinking 2012 but not certain? Forks look quite old as well?

Cheers!

Yeah, it's a little bit of a pic and mix:

Shimano Ultegra 6700 rear derailleur

Shimano 105 5700 RH shifters

Sram Force left brake lever

FSA SLK cantilever brakes

FSA SLK chainset 38t

Shimano R500 wheels

Vittoria Cross XM pro tyres

Fizik Aliante saddle

Cannondale C2 seatpost

FSA SLK stem

Deda handlebar

Shimano M520 pedals

I thought the bit's second hand add up to £200 max, then probably £200 again for the frameset?

Probably worth it if condition is ok, wheels are cheap. what size frame you after and do are you bothered by disks?

54cm frame, perhaps slightly smaller 52/53? This is a 54cm.

That's the thing, would I be better of going for a disc framset? Is it really that much better than canti?

At least try one before you make up your mind.

Sounds like it may be too big for you, best get something that fits even if it costs a bit more as there's nothing worse than trying to fit yourself into a larger than required bike.

Well, I ride a 54" roadie, I was just thinking perhaps a slightly smaller size would be more flickable for off road.

It's a decent spec, assuming it all works, and a year or two back you wouldn't have paused. Nowadays with discs so prevalent you have to ask if you can be bothered with canti brakes. You'll have to decide that for yourself.
