Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza".

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.

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.
