Fair price for an 04 Bianchi Eros?

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

I certainly wouldn't pay anywhere near retail for it. Have you asked them what they'd take? They likely didn't pay much more than about $700 for it two years ago, so they'd probably let it go for less than $800 just to move it.

Better question: does it fit you?

Thanks - for asking the right question!

Just got a bit carried away here with a nice celeste bike offered at $700. I thought that maybe I could compensate for the smaller frame size with a longer stem and seatpost. Compact geometry always throws me off, but checking the Bianchi website, I should go for a atleast a 59, ideally a 61.
