I have the opportunity to purchase a Mekk Poggio 1.5 which has been used exclusively indoors on a turbo, the price is £300 , what are the main things to check? If all ok should I make the purchase?

    looks like that's about half what they were sold for, depending on which year's model it is

    is it your size?
    are the tyres/wheels/forks ok?
    is the chain worn? (if it is too far gone, the cassette will be worn and skip with a new chain)
    any sign of corrosion from sweat?
    and of course, is it what you want?
    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    2014, yes, yes, no, no, yes, it is the carbon 1.5 model, is the price ok for what it is?

    In view of your answers then the price is okay as you won't get much better for £300.

    Check the frame and forks for cracks, not because it's been on the turbo but because any frame/fork, carbon or alu can develop cracks for various reasons.
    If all is ok it sounds a good deal for that money IMO.
