Hi - Newbie. I am not sure where to post this. But what would be a fair price for a 2007 Trek 2.1 road bike from a private party with all basic accessories (bump, lights and a bottle rack) in decent condition. (not mint but not beat up either, no rust or visual problems, tires still look decent).
Which means it could be bought in the $1100 range at an LBS. $700 tops. I'd offer $650 and come up. Disadvantage to a used bike is zero warranty, even the frame warranty is voided. Good point to argue, but really seldom an overall issue
Thanks. It's a 2007 model. I got it for $500. I am so happy. I am going to start biking after taking it to a LBS to have it sized and "tuned-up" (Is there such a thing for bikes?) Paid an extra $20 for a helmet to take care of safety! Thank you very very much for your tips/hints. Thank you!
