    2005 Trek 4300 good price?

    Today i purchased a 2005 Trek 4300 for $120 with about 300 miles on it with a missing spoke on the rear wheel. Everything else is in good shape, is this price descent for such a bike?

    sounds pretty good....

    cost maybe 30 to fix the spoke unless youcan do it yourself. those bikes new are probably 400+

    I paid $480 for mine brand new back then. I think with those few miles on it and only a broken spoke that you did ok for $120.

    good deal.. you can get a new wheel of the caliber of that one for around 60 bones and be good to go. Was it the disc model? if so it's a steal
    I only pedal uphill.

    Good price for the bike. Hey, isn't that the bike that Cheeto rides (or did...)??
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "WOW! WHAT A RIDE!"
