2013 Specialized Allez

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

2013 Specialized Allez

Hello all.
Does anyone have an idea what this bike would have sold for new in 2013?

Specialized Bicycle Components

I'm considering looking at a used Allez advertized by owner with 'few miles and in new condition'.

Thoughts in general on this particular model? Thoughts on ball park value as advertized? Seller is asking $1k.

Trying to get some general input before I decide to make a long drive.

Thank you......

BTW the link to Bluebook is here. Its a great resource.
Bicycle Value Guide - Used Bicycle Value - BicycleBlueBook.com

1k definitely seems high, but he's probably worked in some negotiating room. I'd say maybe offer $650 or $700 and see what he says. If he wants more than that and it's more than an hour drive I'd ask for a video or facetime call with the seller going through the gears and some closeups or wear areas like the chainstays and the gears themselves to see how new it is.

I wanted to say thanks for the replies. Very helpful.
I wasn't aware of the blue book. It is indeed a great resource. I've saved it to bookmarks for future reference.

Appreciate the input.

I have the 2011 version of that bike, paid $1,100 because I bought it at the dealer in early 2012. Love it.
