    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.
