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

Good price for a 2004 Trek 1000 aluminum alpha?

There's a guy trying to sell one on craigslist for $350. I've brought him down to $320, but I'm concerned that that is still too much. I am not a serious rider, just to work and back almost every day (a few miles) and occasionally recreationally for longer trips. I need something affordable, but not ****ty. Also, I'm not positive it's a 2004, but it looks closest to that one on bikepedia. Let me know what you think. Any help would be appreciated. I know I'm a newbie.

If it is a 2004 and in reasonable condition, I would say, no more than, $300. It was $700 brand new in 2004.

I agree, I just sold a 2007 trek 1000 for only $425.

Yeah, but don't lose sleep over $20-50. Fit and condition are FAR more important.
