I have been cycling as a hobby/for exercise/commute to work regularly since 2006. My annual routine seems to be as such: -Springtime comes, start to ride -Ride every day in the summer (~1 hour (15 miles), some longer rides) -Ride most days in the fall (~1 hour) -Gets cold, stop riding I started out on a Raleigh Mojave 4.0 hard tail mountain bike and rode mostly on greenway style paths, some offroad, no serious single-track or jumps or anything I then inherited a Univega Via Carisma commuter-esque bike from a friend's dad and wanted to take on some longer rides (~20-30 miles). I usually took a 2 hour ride on the weekends. I am interested in getting into road biking more, doing 20-30 mile rides more regularly, and trying to do some 40-50 mile rides. I am in the market for a bike and my friend's dad is offering me his spare road bike. I was hoping to spend ~$600 on a road bike but he is offering me a pretty sweet bike (more bike than I need) for a good deal for $1k. Should I spend more upfront and get the higher end bike? What do you think? The Roadbike he is offering me is a 2003 Klein Q with Full DuraAce and FSA RD600 wheels. I've ridden it once and seemed like a good fit sizewise, I'm 6'2 an it's a 60cm bike. He crashed it once and it has a small dent on the top tube but it's in great shape and been well maintained. Any advice or opinions are greatly appreciated.
