comment best tires for Cannondale Bad Boy 4
Hi @BrianFitzGerald, I have no real experience with the puncture resistance of slicks, but from what I understand the schwalbes should indeed be much better (in exchange you get a heavier tire with a higher rolling resistance).

comment Does price have a huge impact on the quality of road bikes?
@Michael most bikes with full high(er)end groupsets can easily be googled and verified for authenticity, even for a novice this should provide no huge challenge. As for the fit: I "bought" a bike fitting at my LBS for a small fee, and with those numbers I checked all secondhand bikes I was interested in. You can do this yourself with a tape measure, or again, find the bike specs on google and determine which frame size(s) can be adapted to fit you.

comment How much speed can I buy
In this context, yes, but It depends on what you spend your money on was my point. You could also spend for durability (40 spoke wheels, titanium frames) or ease of maintenance (rohloff speedhub, belt drive). Or just one a flashy custom powdercoating for your entire bike (for no tangible benefit whatsoever). All these will get you beyond $1000 easily.
