Pricing for bicycles varies WIDELY from locale to locale, among other factors. For example, bikes in my semi-rural part of upstate NY often sell for less than half of what they would in NYC. Unless a price guide takes important factors like location into account, it's not going to be remotely accurate.

We've got a few people on these forums who freely offer advice, though, some of it even good advice. ;-) If you give your location (we don't want your address -- just basically which Craigslist local site applies to you) and the type of bike you're looking for, you'll almost certainly get some good suggestions.

There are also some good sites with general info you can use to identify the quality level of a bike. If vintage road bikes are your thing, for example, check out @randyjawa 's site My Ten Speeds.
