    A Good Deal?--2001 Giant TCR 1

    $700. The owner claims to work for a bike shop and that he's maintained it well; it's also just been tuned. I still have yet to ride it, but I don't know if this is a good deal or not.

    How long will the Ultegra parts last, and how do they compare to new models?

    The bike also comes with some version of a Shimano Flight Deck. Is this bike a good deal? Or average priced?

    Not a good deal. The bike is 11yrs old.
    How many miles are on it? Are all the components original?

    Compared to these, your deal is terrible.

    How long will the Ultegra parts last
    That's impossible to tell. It's like asking how long wil the engine last in your car.
