Please excuse my posting here - I didn't know which thread to post in for advice!
Here's the Craigslist description for the bike I'm looking at:
"Specialized Sirrus, 53cm. Paint is good except for one small dent. New front Shimano R500 wheel and hub, it has 20 aero spokes, new rear Weinnman SP77 wheel and hub. Both wheels have new tubes and 700x25 Strada tires, Shimano 600 group, like new calipers and derailleurs, New Ritchey chainrings, new chain, cables, brake pads, RaceFace stem, bar end shifters, Bontrager seat. Looks and rides nice. asking $450, it is worth alot more just for parts, gotta sell for rent."
I saw the bike this evening - the frame is sturdy but scuffed and worn, with a minor ding in the top tube. The rest of the bike parts are new, as described.
My question is: Is the bike worth $450, and if not what would you say it's worth?
Thanks so much for any help you can offer!
