Depends if you are the buyer or the seller. Actual sale price usually lies somewhere between each party's initial valuation.

Now that I saw the price ($1000) it looks like a very good deal to me.

A new Surly disc trucker is about $1400 to $1500. Add in the extras - Brooks saddle, fenders (wood), Garmin GPS, nice racks, bright headlight, Ortlieb panniers - this bike is a good deal. Is it possible to get one somewhat similar for a $100 or so less, maybe. I just bought a disc trucker with Brooks saddle, fenders, rear rack, dynamo hub for a little less, but the bike you identify has more, and more expensive, items. If this bikes fits, then I suggest buying. The only thing that would bother me is the crank with a low of 34 teeth - I would prefer 26 or 24 up front, and a triple crank. But that can be replaced.

I'm not a huge LHT fan, but I'm surprised that it didn't sell within an hour at $1,000. That is a very low price for a relatively new bike set up like that.

If the bike is what you are looking for, it fits and is in the condition as advertised, it looks like a decent deal.

That's a fabulous price. It's not stolen, is it?

Who in the heck would use SRAM Red Shifters on a touring bike? Also what gruppo is he using aside from brifters he makes no mention? If the bike is still in decent shape and the price is right around a grand I would probably go for it (assuming it is not stolen or shady in anyway). Some of those parts alone would cover the cost of it.

That's the hold up right there. I am currently riding a 2013 Jamis SuperNova Cyclocross size 56cm the DT is a 58cm. The sizing charts I found show the DT having a longer reach and top tube length. Which is not shocking! So unless the geometry of the DT somehow makes a longer reach a good thing I'm afraid it is going to be too big. I had to change out the stock stem with a shorter one on the Jamis.

He's using Sram XO on the RD and Sram force for the FD. He said he has used this combo with great results on two previous builds. THe only thing I do not know is what rims he is using.

You could buy the bike and swap parts over to a smaller frame if it's too big. Could easily sell a 58 Disc Trucker frame for at least a couple hundred bucks.
