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

Upgraded Allez Price Check

Good evening everyone! There is a used specialized allez for sale in my area for $785 with the following specs:

Frame: Red A1 aluminum with replaceable deraileur hanger
Fork: FACT carbon
Wheelset: Alex 440SL
Tires: Continental 4000 Kevlar and Michelin Speedium. Both are brand new
Crank: Shimano 105 hollowtech 53/39
Bottom Bracket: Shimano 105 octalink
Brakes: Shimano 105
Cassette: Shimano 105 12/25
Front and rear deraileurs: Shimano 105
Seat post: Thomson Elite
Saddle: Selle San Marco Concor lite Ti rails
Shifters: Shimano Tiagra 9 speed
Stem: ITM forged aluminum
Bar: Ritchey Pro
Pedals: Time ATAC carbon.

Picture

Supposedly fresh cables, tires, tubes, and tape.

I already have pedals so the seller is willing to deduct $30... no other haggling has been done, still waiting to see if I can give it a test ride. So what do you think? Decent price? I don't know if I can afford to spend that much yet, but it looks like a nice setup.

Thanks.

It's funny how the entire drivetrain is 10spd except for the part that matters the most (shifters).

Well I was just informed that it was sold anyways..... so I guess it doesn't really matter.

However the asking price does set a good standard for me as I continue to search for a bike. So, did the price seem, high, low, or just about right?

Thanks.

Ehh, to me it doesn't scream "BUY ME NOW!".
Perhaps at $650.

side note: it looks like a 9 speed (5500) 105 group with tiagra shifters. good stuff but outdated.

EDIT: Case closed

I just bought an 09 Allez brand new with full 10-spd 105 for $950+tax. $785 is too much IMHO.
