Is this a good deal?
Is $590 for a hardly ridden 2007 Specialized Sequoia a good deal? The guy is selling it with a Shimano Electronic Flight Deck Computer included. From the photos it looks to be in excellent condition. It has toe clip pedals (the ones with straps, not clipless). It has regular v-brakes and I would assume basic components. Please give me some advice.
Older than dirt
$770 for the bike new @ MSRP. Subtract 20% if bought late in the model year. MAP pricing about $700, which is what my LBS sells at. The Flight Deck is ok but not worth a huge premium as there are other, nicer computers out there. Even so they're only $50 or so these days. So, that said, not much of a deduct for a 2 year old bike based on his asking price.
IMHO it's overpriced. Should be $400-$450 tops. That said, it's prime season for selling a bike, so there will be a premium as a result.
Thanks, I wasn't planning to offer his asking price but I just wanted an idea of what I should offer. I think I'll offer him something between $400-$450 and see where it goes from there. I don't want to pay more than $500 for it. The problem is there just aren't many people selling bikes in Little Rock, AR and this is the best option.
