    Need help....

    I'm in a position to aquire a Trek 7.3 FX (2006 Model). It is in very good condition, with a few little scratches. What would you all consider a fair offer on price? Is $300 too much, $200 too little? Something inbetween? I don't have a clue on what a fair price would be.

    Thanks Much! Happy pedalling!

    Start around $200. Settle around $250. You could go as high as $300 but I wouldn't go much more than than. A new one is $640 and you get a frame warranty with that one.

    I owned one of those and they are a great bike. Offere $200 and see were it goes but $300 may not be out of line.
    Best thing about cycling is when I'm at work I'm thinking of cycling, when I'm cycling I'm thinking about cycling.

    I'm going to take a look at the bike Saturday morning. Is there anything in paticular that I should look for? Any specific things that could be a no buy?

    Thanks!

    I have ~4500 trouble free miles on mine and love it! I'm still riding the original tires, third (I think) chain and second cassette. I don't consider wear items "trouble". I did add a set of "rams horns" to give me some extra hand positions.
