Is that a 90's impala ss sitting back there?
Either that or a painted Caprice.  Whichever, it's trashed.

for that much you could have any number of bikes that would arguably be better by any metric. The allure of the cx is they are cheap. once you make them expensive what do they offer over other expensive bikes?

Yeah, I was looking at that and the prices seem high.  I mean it has a motogadget and cognito gauge, wheels aren't $3k.  Even with cognito hubs wheels will be under $2k, I mean custom spokes, custom drilled rims and laced by a pro for 2 wheels set me back right over $1k.  I feel that CX falls under more money than brains.

sheesh...  $5k?  I don't think it was that much brand new.

NADA price for this bike in "Excellent" condition is $2,230.  I don't think he really wants to sell it.
