N+1 potential - advice requested

OK, so good deals are often hard to come by, right? There's a LBS with an '09 Specialized Roubaix compact (NOT Comp model) on closeout. It's my size and I'm thinking about a test ride this weekend. Price has been dropped to just under $1600, which is better than list ($1900), but that's a lot more than I want to spend. Any suggestions for a reasonable counter-offer, provided I like it? I've read lots of great things about the Specialized carbon frames, and I'd like a comfortable platform for long rides. Thanks!

BTW, "N" is a 2005 Trek 1500 (aluminum frame) with triple crank.
