Information on Scattante 660

My LBS is selling a used Scattante 660 for $400. I think the components were ultegra or 105. I can't find anything online about when it was created, the original price, and there is no bicycle bluebook page for it. Is it a good deal?

Google told me these things:
Scattante R 660 Road Bike user reviews : 3.9 out of 5 - 7 reviews - roadbikereview.com
https://bikeindex.org/bikes/48280
https://www.bikeforums.net/road-cycling/307025-scattante-660-review.html

Could be aluminum could be CF. I believe the CF version is the same frame as the Nashbar CF road bike based on this picture (https://bikeindex.org/bikes/21438) or at least very similar.

Depends entirely upon size, age, and condition. Performance has always sold solid bikes, and you often get what you pay for ... so it would never have been an earth-shaking, amazing ride but it would probably have been the kind of bike most riders could enjoy riding for years.

As to the specific bike ... who knows?

I generally wouldn't pay much for a Scattante, though personally wouldn't buy one unless the components on it were super rare and the bike was a screaming deal. If the bike is well maintained, tuned and the parts aren't worn out and the bike actually fits you well it might not be the absolute worst deal.

Performance Bike is kind of like a Marshall's or TJ Maxx. You never really want to be in there but sometimes you can find an OK deal or get something you desperately need.
