Should I pay this much for a used 2001 bike?

Hello,

Thinking about getting the hybrid bike from Cannondale. It's a 2001 silk path 400. The bike is in great shape. Its asking price is 200. Side note, I am in a small bike market so the sellers have a bit more leverage here.

Thank you

If the bike is in great shape that seems reasonable. Not a great price but not too far out of line.

For this type of question it's easier for us to give a useful answer if you give your location.
In the other thread I see you give your location as Corpus Christi; there's really no reason not to put it on your profile.

If the bike is in good shape and fits you well then the price is fine; not great, but not bad.

I noticed this on Craigslist:

Could be cool.
