    Help me Price this Bike

    So I have the opportunity to purchase a Kelin Adept Race that has almost never been used. The guy who is selling it bought off e-bay a few years ago for approx 1300. Once he got it, he found the frame was too big, and therefore never rode it.

    The bike has:
    Deore LX/ Bontaranger components for drivetrain,
    Rolf Dolomite wheels,
    front and back disc brakes
    Fox Float R rear shock
    Some really crappy Manitou spring loaded piece of garbage front fork.
    The tires are junk, they are starting to crack and will need to be replaced.

    I have no idea what year it is. He mentioned 2000, but I think it may be newer, 2003 possibly. Any ideas on what I should expect to pay? E-bay was of no help, no current or past sales of the Adept Race. Thanks.

    yeah that would be between 600 - 650 if I include the cost of a tune up and new tires. This is about what I want to spend. Anyone else? I would like to pay him market price, he is a mutual friend, I see him all the time. Don't really want to screw the guy. Thanks.
