    More info please

    What is your intent...fitness, racing, commuting, century rides?

    Is the bike new or used? From a dealer?

    If it is new from a dealer, with some type of warrenty, it is an okay deal at best. If a year of tune-ups, or discount on accessories is part of the deal, all the better. Most importantly, does it fit you? If it is from an honest broker dealer, then they can help with that. If it is from a less than ethical dealer who is just trying to get old stock off the floor, then don't expect much help.

    If it is used, I would pass...you should be able to get more bike on Craigslist, Ebay, etc.

    Regards

    JD

    If lightly used, a three year old model should sell for about one half its original selling price. I would estimate the original selling price to be around $600 to $650, hence $300-$325 used.

    aluminum frame/ carbon fork, 8 speed bike with shimano Sora. Not really a deal, kinda ok. forget a warranty, too old. not sure what you could buy for $400, it's not enough. buy a used frame and maybe another bike to swap parts from. closer to $800 budget.

    You can get a new bike with those components for close to the same price. Spend a little more and you can get a lot more.
