    Is this a good deal?

    this is on my local craiglist. I was wondering if it seemed like a good deal or not. I have not bought any used bike before........... (they retailed at $800 back then)

    -$600
    - 2006
    - Kona Jake (Cyclocross)
    - Root beer color
    - Near new (100 miles; most on pavement)
    - Odometer
    - Equivalent price for 2009 Jake is ~ $1000.00
    - Always kept inside and never wrecked
    - Have manual, catalog, and warranty card (never registered)

    If it's stock, I'd say it's not a great deal. Keep hunting.

    If if fits, try a low-ball offer. His wife wants it out of the house.
    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    That isn't a great price, in fact, you can pick up a new one within a hundred dollars after the cross season and take no risk.

    Price is to high, just keep your eyes open and do not be
    in a rush to buy and a GOOD deal will come along.
