shimano ultegra di2 test bike

Postby Kef » Fri Mar 08, 2013 23:35 pm

Hey guys I am in a dilemma.
I have an offer from a friend to buy the shimano ultegra di2 test bike for 1800 euros.
What's your opinion? Is it worth it?

Who knows what its worth you have only told us what the gear components are not what the bike is.
Pain hurts much less if its topped off with beating your mates to top of a climb.

Think that clarifies the bike then, can't recall the make/model they used but sure someone will jump in with the answers soon.

If it fits you and you like it for that sort of money if you REALLY want Di2 then seems a reasonable price if in euros.

Good luck

Yep, Giant TCR Advanced frameset.

The Di2 version retailled for £3500, so make your own mind up ;)

I'm not sure it is a tcr as it doesn't have a vector seat post and the rear brake bridge isn't solid, but the forks look like the tcr's
Wheelbase at stavely had one I'd seen and vagely remember pro lite in big letters on it.

The bike which the OP has posted however is definitely not a TCR.

But i really dunno what this is

my problem is i dont know what to do....
from my side the props is :

-hi tech equipment except the wheels
-good price

but the cons:

-probably it would be heavy used because it was a test bike(so i cant know what it was been through)
-and i cant remove the SHIMANO ULTEGRA DI2 stickers from it and im not sure how nice it would be to own this kind of bike.....it looks a bit ridiculous
but i believe that if i ''press'' the owner i can get it even less money....

so what you suggest?
better keep my money and buy something similar and new?
or this is a hot deal that should not been lost????

What he said. And you would look a tool on it as everybody has seen them in the shops and it will look your constantly on a test ride. Not good value particularly?

Have anyone asked Shimano about the manufacturer of the frame? I think it's a Cannondale Super Six 3.

It's different for every country. In greece shimano give order to the Greek factory "ideal bikes" to fix 8 bikes with good gear and full ultegra di2 for promotion use.
The frame is from the bike "ideal stage team".
Trust me I make a big research.!
