Trek 1420 Aluminum road bike

Trek 1420 Aluminum road bike, size 50, Shimano 105 components - $275


"This bike has recently been tuned up and is ready to go! Features Shimano 105 hubs, brake levers, brake calipers, and shift levers. Appears to be almost all original parts, and is in excellent shape overall. Has Continental tires in almost new shape. This bike rides, shifts, and stops great. Size is 50 cm, which means it would probably best fit someone 5'2"-5'6"."

Is this a good deal? I have been researching online for a few days and it seems a bit high.

Without knowing your location, no idea. That would be high for around here for sure.

The Trek 400 is a better bike for less money.

I paid 260.00 for a Trek 1200 in Atlanta. 200-300 is about the going rate for those older Treks.

Round tube aluminum Treks are nice rides. The later Alpha series with the triangular downtube, not so much.

Around here, the variable that determines value the most is brifters. With, $300+. Without, $175-250.

Assume by the OP's description it is a DT shifter bike.

DT shifter Aluminium bikes are kinda supper low now in most markets nice typical good but not abused with no issues bikes with good components are going for well under $200. M id level Treks seem to be hit the worst with current market conditions I wouldn't go much over $100 on really nice bikes that were going for $300-400 4 5 years ago.
