This Doesn't Make Me Feel Too Good.

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

Just bought my Trek 1.1 2010 model last June for close to $700 from my LBS.

Love the bike but sure does not say much for the resale value.

That ad is just bullship. He doesn't have the bike but wants to sell it for $350. I'll sell you a bike I don't have for even less. Enjoy your bike and don't worry about resale value.

Craigslist is getting weird. That add is a scam. I would report it. Nobody is selling new Trek anything for $350. Nobody.

Gotta agree. He may be getting them but not legitimately.

Also, I believe 2010 Sora is 9 speed. I think the only 8 speed Shimano road stuff is downtube shifters and I don't believe Trek did that in 2010 at all.

Not sure what's going on with the ad. I can't figure out what his angle is.

This whole deal sounds very shady. I wouldn't be concerned over your re-sale value due to this.

I don't know about you guys but I'm sick of hearing all this talk about resale value. (no offense to the OP) It's a bike, just ride it and enjoy it. My CAAD 8 has scratches and scuffs from me riding the crap out of it. When time comes for a new bike, I honestly don't care what I would get for the CAAD since it has served me well since 2006. Sorry for the OT rant.

2300 is not Sora, which is 3400. 2300 is 8 speed.

Anyone that replies will probably get an email asking for a "deposit", and they will be "available very soon" ..... Send the money to a bank in Nigeria ....

I agree. And I have already gotten more than enough pleasure from my Trek to compensate for its cost. Just a little shocked to see such a post (on Craigslist). Although I don't know why I should be. There's lots of crazy stuff there. Also, for me, spending the almost $700 was a big step up from the road bike I bought for $30 twenty years ago and which got me back and forth to work when the weather permitted.

"I don't actually have the bikes at this time but I was wondering if people would be interested in these brand new bikes for around $350 give or take. I would have around 7 or 8 brand new never used Trek's stolen and just want to make sure I would be able to get rid of them before I go ahead and get them stolen."
