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.

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.
