What is a Cannondale F300 worth?

Hi,
I am trying to get back into biking, more rail trails and dirt road stuff. I found a 2005 or 06 cannondale F300 in nice shape. Guy is asking $350.I would think it will sit at that price, and will go lower..bikepedia says it went for around 550 new, used price seems high, I guess the other option would be buy a new Hardrock?

I would appreciate your input

Thanks

I'd go for the hardrock but used bikes will lose a lot of their value quickly. 2 years old and the bike still in good condition and I would reckon it would lose 50% of its original cost. Then there is the condition of it and worn parts that are near the end of their life would take replacement value off it.

So a 4 year old costing $550 new and I would reckon about $200 would be the value of it providing it is in good condition. Unless it is one lady owner from new that only used it for the weekly shopping trip.

Funny, $200 was the number I was thinking if they wanted to get rid of it. Thanks
