2006 Giant OCR 3 - good deal ?

I have been using a mass produced mountain bike so far and I think I am ready for the next level. I am going for a entry level road-bike and not really on a generous budget though. I came across a deal for a Giant OCR 3 2006 model and the guy is ready to sell it for 300$. The bike looks good and has less tha nfew hundred miles on it. The specs are detailed in this link :

Any opinions as to how good (or bad ) this deal is ?

Thanks!

Not classic or vintage, and an average deal.

What size is it? Does it fit you?

If so, go for it! MAJOR upgrade over a mountain bike for street use. I don't think he can get $400 for it, nor would he sell it for $200. Considering its condition, $300 is legit.

Market Report:

I just listed my 2002 OCR 3 here on the St Louis craigslist for $300. I don't consider St Louis to be a strong market and my bike is not nearly as nice as yours. Within a few hours I've got 2 people saying they are ready to give me $300 tomorrow and several others who want to look at it.
