    What's a fair price for this 2001 2300?

    I was looking to pick up a road bike for training and some 30-50 mi rides as time and weather allow.

    A friend of a friend has this 2001 2300 for sale because he is moving. It looks in ok shape. He says it only has less than 500 mi on it.

    The size is right, but I have not been on it. What is a reasonable price?

    Hmmm... Is that a "Trek"? The decals are unclear on this.

    It matches the bike in this link:
    http://www.bikepedia.com/QUICKBIKE/B...2300&Type=bike

    Trek's website didn't go back to 2001

    Assuming everything pictured is included, pump, computer , seat bag, pedals and assuming that is a full ultegra build and it it doesn't need a lot of work.

    I wouldn't pay more than 5-600...but then again I wouldn't buy it in the first place. Some might argue more some may argue less but thats my take if I was looking for a 9 yrs used ride. Of course as usual, anything is too much if it doesnt fit...make sure it fits you well. .

    It does match the link I think it might just be a trek, if it had a few more larger decals we would know for sure!

    Oh, sorry, sarcasm on the large decals...................
    I was kind of in that "dumb people at work mode" reading that.

    Ask him about the damage to the right rear seat stay. Looks like the bike was crashed, but there are no marks on the rear deraileur.

    Also: check the computer for the actual milage. The brake wear on the rims doesn't look like 500 miles....

    I past on this bike and went with a last year close out on a Cannondale Six.

    I liked a Trek also, but no one in my area seem to have my size at the time.

    Ultegra running gear, Rolf wheelset, accessories already in place...still it's 9 years old.
    I'd do $400.-$450. tops. That'd be a good price in my opinion.

    For me, $500. is too close to a spanking' brand new Trek 1.1 that'll come with a lifetime warranty
    and 5 years on the Bonty parts for just $150. more. Add $100. for brand new accessories
    and pick up the bike on sale for 10% off, and you're talking $750. (with Shimano R540 pedals)
    max for brand new bike that's frame is eons above that 2300.

    You're so f'n funny! Did you come up with that all by yourself, cupcake™?

    To the OP: 9 year old aluminum frame. 500 tops if perfect. Then start taking $ off for everything that needs attention.
