How much should I be paying for a Specialized Roubaix Comp Carbon

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 should I be paying for a Specialized Roubaix Comp Carbon

Hi, I've been offered a Specialized Roubaix Comp (2009) Carbon with a full Shimano 105 group set for £550 in "perfect condition". Would you say this is a good price? Thanks for replies.

I have a 2009 with an Ultegra triple setup and some nice Easton alloy wheels. I would be asking $1500 for my bike if I was inclined to sell it. So the equivalent of $880 US would seem like a reasonable price for a 105 groupo based bike. The quality and condition of the wheels have a lot of impact on the value.

If the bike is in good shape, I think that is a great price. Get it checked by a competent bicycle shop before you hand over the money.

I ride one. That price is about $2K off the MSRP. Assuming it's in "perfect condition" it's a no brainer, though you may do some upgrades over time.
