I am thinking about purchasing a used 2003 Jamis Quest. I live in Boulder, CO - a huge biking community! Seller states the bike has only been ridden about 10 times since she received it as a bonus from her work. She is trying to sell it for $450. I am thinking it's current value is about $350. From the photos (not included) the bike looks in good shape. Any thoughts?
