Price used Trek Wsd2000

May have the better half trying a road bike. Found a used trek 2000 womens bike $400 on craiglist. Has 650 wheels tiara components pretty good considering new starter road bike is maybe $750.

Now I am a decent bike wrench build my own wheels going to check in out this evening. My question is price. $400 is too much for a 12 year old bike assuming it is in good shape not problems, what would you think to offer?

Would not say it's too much, but too many variables to say what to offer. That's dependent on general mechanical and appearance condition, whether large maintenance items have been done (bearings, drive train replacements) upgrades and equipment included, what changes you may have to do for fit, etc. Having a 9 speed does make it pretty compatible with current equipment.

If it's been up for sale for some time and not prime you could go slightly lower, but keep in mind that to find a used bike of the right type, size, condition and price close to you is always a challenge. That alone is worth something.

Craig's list, key , go there and look ..

Condition and location are factors too .. and the web.
people look at Ebay prices at Goodwill/Charity shops, now.
and price according to what the auction winner paid.

Which model/group-set of components ?

NB: there is a WSD Carbon Madone..

Do some research and find what other bikes like this have sold for. If the bike is complete and appears well maintained it could be worth the asking price. I like that you compare with what a new bike would cost, and I agree that $750 is the baseline for a new road bike. My last bike purchase, an 86 Peugeot Triathlon, cost $250 in excellent ready to ride condition. My research showed these bikes typicaly sell for $200 to $350 depending on condition. I probably would have paid double the asking price given that mine was a garage queen, and that I have an unnatural attraction to Peugeots.

Update, I check it out and shifts fine almost perfect ( triples are not my thing but it the wife's). Tires are conti with almost no wear, does not seem to have huge miles one it I am guess less than 2500 total. Perfect size for the wife, has mtn bike pedals shimano with it, frame pump, 6 extra tubes, small rear bag, and a working cateye endro computer. She took $350 and I really think I did well...........now if Mary Jo can see if she likes this as a change I hope. She is a breast cancer survivor and has always run off and on but running she does not find interesting any more. She does tire easily compared to pre chemo and radiation and was looking for a change. I am pretty happy. I have concern about brifters but I have a spare set and they can be had at a decent price if they go bad.
