A lot depends on your area. Look at prices on CL as a guide. The 50 cents on the dollar is a little conservative, but not far off. IMHO, For a really nice condition bike, hardly used, that is the exact size you want, 60% of retail is not a bad deal. At 70% of retail, start looking for discounts on leftover bikes from 08, 09. I had no trouble finding 25% off on leftovers. Some have done better than that. I've seen well over 30% off retail, but those are usually higher end bikes. Entry level bikes are not discounted as much.
