2011 GIANT Roam 2
Just picked up a 2011 Giant Roam 2 that was on Craigslist. This thing is in nearly flawless condition. Looks like it has been ridden maybe 10 times. I've been looking to get the 2012 model but this one popped up and he actually had it advertised as a 2012. I took it for a 15 minute ride in 28* temps and then informed him it was a 2011 and he dropped another $35 off the price. He got the bike on trade and was hoping to trade it for a kayak but couldn't find a taker so he took the cash instead. My local dealer had 1 left but was able to snag this one for $120 less. Can't wait to get this thing out on the roads (and some light trails) once the weather warms up a little more.
How much did you end up paying for it?

Last March I paid $340 for my 2011 model. $450 for a 2 year old model is high when new it ran around $520. You could probably find one NEW at your LBS for that price or less. I would definitely try to get him UNDER $400 if you could, but if you can't find any others around and the bike is in excellent condition, then its up to you how much you want to spend. I don't believe I've seen another Roam advertised around by me since I purchased it. Of course I haven't looked regularly, but I just know you don't see them everyday.
