    question: Specialized Sirrus for $70?

    A phd student at my university is selling his specialized sirrus for $70 and I have yet to find out the year and exact model and color and stuff..

    Why is he selling it for so cheap? other then checking that's it's in good working condition, is there anything else that i should be looking for?

    thanks ppl

    Sometimes these deals do come along. If it is not too beat up, and even if you have to plow in a few $'s for a good tune up and some replacement parts, you still are probably ahead of the game.

    I picked up a ConceptII rowing machine for my daughter for $100 last year. List - $800-$1000.00 It didn't even look like it was used one time. I felt like I was stealing it.

    Good Luck.

    I'm sure that colleges work a lot like I saw at tech school in the air force, or on regular bases for that matter. Someone bought a nice bike 3 years ago. They graduated and sold it. The person that bought it rode it for a year, then sold it. Each time it gets further from the bike shop and further from the retail price. I bought a honkin nice "boom box" when I was in tech school for $10. I know I was at least the third owner, and it was a current model. Of course we graduated a little faster than PhD students....

    That's how I got my first TV. You get sent to your first duty station and you off load crap like crazy. Of course the guys with the short schools never accumulated much of anything, unlike guys like me who's school was four months long
