    How much is this Limongi worth?

    Hey, there is an ad for what seems like a pretty nice Limongi. It doesn't say in what year it was made. It has 105 components. Seller claims he paid 2k for it when it was new.

    He is asking $450 and is open for negotiation. Do you think I should buy it? I'm pretty new to cycling and if I buy it I plan to use it for commuting.

    I would also like to rebuild it during the course of the winter, I would like to begin wrenching and it seems like a nice project.

    What do you guys think?

    Depending on your commute, I prefer one of the vintage steel rigid frame MTBs. Room for fenders and racks, almost indestructible, and available CHEAP!

    Ah, modern STI. If everything works, it could be worth that price. I couldn't tell from the craptastic pics. BG does a nice job enlarging it.

    STI = modern bike which means this is neither classic nor vintage, but instead is a used bike. Nothing wrong with a good used bike of course.

    Thank you guys for the info, although in the end, I passed. 450$ is just too much for me at the moment. Too bad because I really liked it.
