Cyclist with thousands of dollars to spend on a road bike would likely pass by the CAAD8 2300 and look to pricier models but it's nice to know people new to the sport and or on a tight budget can find a dependable road bike with solid components for around $800.00. Definitely one of the best sub $1000.00 bikes out there on today's market.
