I don't usually recommend buying used aluminum bikes, without knowing their histories. However, in this case, the picture of this bike really makes it look almost brand new. Furthermore, the T800 was one my favorite bikes that Cannondale has ever produced. The T800 is still a highly respected bike by many touring cyclists. Therefore, if this bike fits you, and the ride feels comfortable to you, then make the purchase.

Of course, I would advise you to find someone who "knows bikes" so that they can accompany you to make this purchase. Have them inspect the bike both before and after your test ride ( at least a couple of miles).

Offer $200, but bring $300 for this bike. Use your bargaining skills to win!

This bike looks like a great deal!

Good Luck!

PS.

If that's a dent in the top tube where the sunshine is reflecting the most, then low ball the bike to $100, or forget it!

No dents or weld issues are acceptable!
