Bianchi Advantage

I'm looking at this Bianchi Advantage Hybrid bike, likely in the range of 2005-2007... great condition. Does anyone have an idea of a good sale price? She is asking $300 (albeit including a lock, pump, and new helmet, never used) but it still feels a bit steep. Any ideas?

Thanks for your input,
Cat

However, if you're up for the task, the bike is listed under Santa Fe Craigslist, bikes for sale, the only result of a search for "Bianchi Hybrid".... it is orange with a basket. The seller said she is unsure of the year, but that it is "not very old" Alas, it seems the latest advantage model is 2007...

For about half the price, this looks a lot more interesting (to me).

(Appears similar in size. Only tossing in my two cents as it topped the list in a search of your indicated CL, for Bianchi. My apologies for not actually answering the question asked.)

That Bianchi is at least 15 years old, maybe older. It comes with a quill stem. I have an old Bianchi with a quill stem. It is a 1997. And it has a suspension fork. I would stay away from any bike older than 10 years old with a suspension fork.

Bottom line. Not worth $300. You might even find a new bike for not much more.

I don’t get how you are supposed to swing your leg up and over the rear basket if you are small enough to ride the bike.

If it were recently serviced, with all bearing sets regreased, fmv is about $225, for one without the suspension fork. With the fork, take off $40.

I wouldn't go more than $125, unless you are in a place where used bikes are a rarity. If that were the case, I would buy a new Trek from a dealer, or buy something online.
