How much does this bike worth?

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

How much does this bike worth?

2002 Trek 2000 with 105's.

250 miles, lady did a couple of marathons thats it. I saw the bike, its in MINT condition like showroom condition, tires are new because the original ones dried from being stored almost all of its life.

Picture is coming

Thanks.

I'd say you need to work on your command of the language before you acquire another bike.

Priorities, you know.

You're welcome.

in all seriousness the msrp was 1300 when new 9 years ago. The bike looks to be in great shape and at worst you figure you could pay $100 max for a bike shop to give it a full once over (even though the hubs and headset are probably fine, lets play it safe and get them regreased and replace cables incase the housings are dryrotted or something. If I were selling that bike I can't imagine I'd be asking less than $750 for it. LEts face it, you can't buy a new 105 bike for 750. Some will say "yeah but it's 9 speed 105" fine, your lucky if you can buy a brand new Tiagra 9speed bike for $750.

its tough assessing value because there are people who will say "it's 10 years old so it's only worth $300" Others will say "It's brand new and want full price." For you as a buyer you have to look at it in terms of what your other options are. if this bike is an ideal fitting bike for you and the alternative is a brand new similarly equipped bike at a bike shop for $1300 than paying $1000 for this would be a very good dea. Conversely, what are the sellers options? They ahve had the bike for 10 years and put 200 miles on it. While they are probably smart enough to know that it should sell for more than $300, they may not want to go through the legwork of posting ads to sell it, or posting it on ebay etc. They also may be filthy rich and not really care abou tmoney too much. You could offer them $500 and they may say "sure" think about. $500 for something that you don't even use? not too shabby.

I wouldn't pay more than $500 for it

You can get a brand new Tiagra/105 bike from BikesDirect for $600 with a more modern carbon fork, warranty and newer generation components.

The fact is that it *isnt* brand new, it is 9 years old. Its like finding a 2002 Ford Tarus, brand new at the Ford Dealership in 2011. Is it still worth $20,000? Of course not.

I'd agree on not spending above $500. I'd say $350- 400 for a 9 year old entry level bike, but the fact that it appears to be in excellent condition is worth a bit more.

Does it fit you? How about with a normal about of seatpost showing. That sure looks like the lady got a bike way too big for her.

It looks like it is in great condition but 10-year-old 105 is not that great. I regularly see people pick up 3-4 year old Fuji bikes with mostly 105 for somewhere in the vicinity of $500, and Performance clears out last year's models for somewhere around $800-900 at season end. I wouldn't pay more than around $400 for it, even given the condition.

Thanks for all the response, the bike is actually for my wife. The owner wanted $450 for it, I offered her $300 because it has a broken front derailleur (the little spring broken), she accepted the offer

Good deal!

A new Tiagra FD will run you around $20-30 max.

I'd be a little suspicious about a bike with a broken derailer and "only 250 miles" on it. How the heck did the der get broke?

I'm also suspicious about that FD. Are you sure the spring is broken and not the shifter itself? A shifter replacement would be considerably more costly than a new FD.

I was wondering about that too, she admitted that she fell coming to a stop at a traffic light learning how to use clipless pedals. Then she went to platform pedals. I don't see any other sign of damage though.

No, shifter is good, here is a pic of the broken little tab that the spring should rest on rendering the FD useless.

Oh, okay. That's a cheap fix, then, replacing an FD is no big deal.

Nice deal!
