used dahon vitesse d7 price

Hi,

I've been looking into getting a foldable bike to commute from Brooklyn to Manhattan (my employer doesn't have the space to store a full-size bike), and although I'm on a budget, I've generally ruled out a Citizen based on reviews on this forum -- though I've found a used Miami for $100 that I could get. But on to my question: I've found a used Dahon Vitesse D7 (not D7HG ) for $400, but can likely talk it down. What would be a reasonable price? I've searched for used prices all over the Internets for comparison, but I've come up with nothing. Thoughts?

Thanks!

$250-300 would be reasonable.

Hello Dave:

I wanted to know if you are going through with that Vitesse; if not, maybe you could point me to the ad, since I too am looking for one?

thanks

I ended up not getting the bike -- turned out my employer has a place for me to store the bike I have now. The posting is at http://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/bik/2802439106.html and I think it's still available (in NYC).
