600 for a specialized Tricross?

is 600 dollars for 2 year old specialized tricross, with gossamer crank set, 2 sets of wheels, Thompson seat post and phenom saddle a decent deal? oh and it runs 105.

I believe it is a elite.

Thanks guys!

used or new? 600 sounds like a great deal with 105 and 2 sets of wheels? I'd take it!

It sounds like a great deal, assuming it fits you, but you never know about component wear. I'd probably take a chance on it.

No such thing as an elite. There is a sport, comp and a expert. But 105 probably rules out the sport model. If it's a comp or higher, $600 is a great deal if it's in good shape. I paid $900 (a few years ago) for a 2 year old Comp model and felt like I got a great deal.

If that's the 2008 model then it would be the comp with those specs. Is it a brown and black bike?
I have the sport model from that year and love it. The comp must be even better. I now regret not ponying up for the compact crankset instead of the triple.
