Hi so I was on the market for a newer used bike and stumbled across a 2015 Cannondale Jekyll 4. The guys price is $1500. He added a dropper post, and converted it to a 1x and put new tires on it. It looks like it;s in pretty good condition judging by the pictures. He said there are only a few scratches on it because he rides it a lot and overall it's in good shape. He lives 2 and a half hours from me so I want to make sure it's a steal before I go to check it out. What do you think?

Sounds like a great deal to me. I think they spec'd the Jekyll 4 better than the 3 that year and the paint job is way better than the 3. You can upgrade the fork's damper if you wanted as well. I love my Jekyll, its such a race bike and handles soooooo well, just make sure you get the right size cuz there is a very big difference between sizes.

I didn't consider that. I'm 5'9 and the bike size is a Medium. I was reading that Cannondale doesn't offer a size chart, and that Medium would work at my height. I ride a Medium bike right now anyways. There isn't that much reviews on that bike.

I've built a lot of Cannandales in my time and can attest to their build quality. If it fits, I'd say grab it.

But I've just got to sell my dirt bike first, then I can buy it.
